The publication of the 2022/23 Premier League fixtures has revealed that Manchester City will begin their title defence against West Ham at the London Stadium and finish the campaign away at Brentford.
Manchester City won their fourth title in five years in dramatic circumstances on the final day of last season, as three goals in less than six minutes helped the Blues retain the Premier League title for the second time under Pep Guardiola and scuppered Liverpool’s hopes of an unprecedented quadruple.
Guardiola, who has already added strikers Erling Haaland and Julian Alvarez to his squad ahead of the upcoming season, will be bidding to win a third consecutive league title, and his fifth since moving to Manchester in 2016 - as he enters the final 12 months remaining on his current Manchester City contract.
The six-time Premier League champions will start and end their 2022/23 campaign in the capital, kicking off against West Ham at the London Stadium on Sunday 7th August and rounding off the season at the Brentford Community Stadium on Saturday 28th May.
