Manchester City's Potential 2022/23 Premier League Title Run-In Confirmed

The 2021/22 Premier League season has only just been and gone, but the new campaign is almost upon us, with the annual fixture release on Thursday morning met with its usual dose of excitement.

For football fans, it is a chance to plan ahead and look at the games that will be key in determining where their respective teams finish - including local derbies and key match-ups.

After various leaks in the week prior, the Premier League have finally released the official set of fixtures, all of which are set for an obvious change if selected for TV coverage.

Manchester City - who are the current Premier League champions - will be looking to defend their crown once more and take home a seventh domestic triumph.

That means, if they are in the mix during the end of season run-in, they will face an intense final six fixtures. If the Blues are still in various major competitions, the opposition may change, but the nerves will still remain the same.

Under Pep Guardiola, Manchester City have held their own in intense end-of-season periods. In 2018/19, the club won their final 14 league matches to fend off the strong challenge of Liverpool, while 2021/22 showed the same level of consistency, but over a shorter period.

This season, however, the Blues will begin their final six games at the Etihad Stadium against Mikel Arteta's Arsenal. They will then face Fulham at Craven Cottage, with Marco Silva's men earning automatic promotion to the Premier League last season.

Games against Leeds United at home and Everton at Goodison Park will follow, before Chelsea at the Etihad on the penultimate fixture of the season.

Then, on the final day as it stands, Manchester City will face Brentford away, with the potential of lifting the Premier League trophy at the Brentford Community Stadium.

It is fair to say Pep Guardiola will have very mixed feeling about such a demanding run-in. Despite tough tasks against Arsenal and Chelsea, the Blues will fancy their chances if it came to a final day shootout at Brentford.
