Premier League 2021/22 fixtures has been revealed. This article provides an outline of the fixtures for Big six clubs.

Championship playoffs for Premier League qualification

Manchester City fixtures

The Premier League fixtures for the 2021/22 season have now been revealed, and defending champions Manchester City will begin their season away from home to Tottenham Hotspur.

It will be interesting to see if Pep Guardiola can begin his side’s title defence with a win over the Londoners. The City will also take on Arsenal in the third game of the season, and it promises to be a challenging start for the Champions.

The City will play the two Manchester derbies in November and March. Guardiola will be delighted with the December fixture list and City won’t be facing any of the top teams during that period.

Meanwhile, the Champions have been handed a reasonably easy end to the season, and they will be facing Watford, Leeds, Newcastle, West Ham and Villa in their final five matches.

Liverpool fixtures

Liverpool have been handed a reasonably easy start to the Premier League, and they will be taking on newly-promoted Norwich City on the opening day of the season.

The Reds will be hoping to mount a title challenge this season, and the fixture list shows that they have a great chance of making an impressive start.

The Reds will take on Manchester United and Everton in the derbies during the months of October, November, March and April.

Tottenham are the only top team they will face in their final five matches of the season, and Jurgen Klopp will fancy his side’s chances of going all the way.

Manchester United fixtures

Manchester United will start their Premier League campaign with a blockbuster game at Old Trafford, and they will host Leeds United on the opening weekend.

The Red Devils have been handed an impressive start, and they won’t be facing a top-six side until the middle of October.

December is set to be kind for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as well, and Manchester United will be up against Crystal Palace, Norwich, Brentford, Brighton, Newcastle and Burnley.

United will finish their season against the likes of Brighton, Chelsea and Crystal Palace in their final three games.

Chelsea fixtures

Champions League winners Chelsea have been handed a rocky start to the campaign, and they will open the season against Crystal Palace.

However, the game against the Eagles is followed by clashes with Arsenal, Liverpool, Tottenham and Manchester City in the next five matches.

It will be interesting to see if Thomas Tuchel can guide this side past the baptism of fire.

The Blues will take on the likes of West Ham, Leeds, Everton, Wolves, Villa and Brighton during December, and they are all potentially tricky fixtures to navigate.

The ending to the season will not be easy either, and the Blues will have to take on West Ham, Everton and Manchester United in their final five games.

It will be a testing campaign for Chelsea, and it remains to be seen whether they can mount a title challenge.

Arsenal fixtures

Arsenal will start their campaign against newly-promoted Brentford before hosting Chelsea in the London Derby.

The Gunners will then head to champions Manchester City.

Mikel Arteta has been handed a challenging start to the season, and it will be interesting to see if the Londoners can step up and make an impressive start.

The first north London derby of the season will be held on the 25th of September, and the reverse fixture is in January.

Key matches against Liverpool and Manchester United have been scheduled in quick succession in November.

The final run-in will see the Gunners take on Leeds, Newcastle and Everton in the last three games.

Tottenham fixtures

Tottenham have been handed an opening day clash against champions Manchester City.

The Londoners are yet to appoint a new manager, and the incoming candidate will have to prepare for a rocky start.

Spurs will then take on Chelsea and Arsenal back to back in September, but the fixture list is well balanced after that.

They will take on the likes of Brentford, Norwich, Brighton, Leicester, Liverpool, Palace and Southampton in December, and the run-in sees them face Liverpool, Burnley and Norwich.
