City’s post-World Cup run could define title race
By GOAL‘s Man City Correspondent, Jonathan Smith
This promises to be a season like no other, with the campaign split into two parts with a World Cup sandwiched in-between, but Manchester City can be reasonably content with the way their Premier League fixtures have fallen.
Pre-Qatar 2022, City have a relatively kind run of games as they aim to build a lead at the top of the table, with their toughest home matches coming against Tottenham and Manchester United.
The one fixture that stands out before the turn of the year is the visit to Liverpool, which comes immediately after a Champions League group game.
Depending on how successful Pep Guardiola’s players are at the World Cup, they could be rushed back into a tricky run of fixtures after Christmas, with Leeds, Chelsea and United away in the space of two-and-a-half weeks.
But City have been handed a relatively kind run-in, with four of the last five games against Fulham, Leeds, Everton and Brentford, which could in turn boost their Champions League hopes presuming they reach the semi-finals once again.
When do Man City play Liverpool in 2022-23?
Last season’s top two will again be the title favourites heading into 2022-23, meaning that their matches against one another are likely to be key in deciding who lifts the trophy in May.
They will meet for the first time on Saturday, October 15 at Anfield, with the return fixture at the Etihad Stadium coming late in the season, on Saturday, April 1.
Both games in 2021-22 finished in 2-2 draws.
When do Man City play Man Utd in 2022-23?
The first Manchester derby of the 2022-23 season takes place on Saturday, October 1 at the Etihad Stadium.
Erik ten Hag’s first taste of an Old Trafford derby, meanwhile, will be played on Saturday, January 14.
City won both derbies in 2021-22, so United will no doubt be out for revenge and local bragging rights when the matches come around.
