What are the key dates for the 2023/24 season?
The Premier League new season begins on August 11-13 and lasts nine months, ending on May 19, 2024. There will be a week of rest from January 14-20 to give players a well-deserved mid-season break. Furthermore, to alleviate holiday fixture congestion, there will be no two rounds with less than 48 hours between them at this time.
Mark your calendars for the cup finals: the Carabao Cup on February 25, the Europa League on May 22 in Dublin, and the Champions League on June 1 at Wembley Stadium.
Top 10 Hottest Matches to Watch In the Premier League 2023-2024
1. Chelsea vs. Liverpool (Aug. 13, 2023-Jan 31,2024)
It's unusual for such a high-profile match to take place on the first weekend of the season, but this one has all the ingredients to be the season's first standout game.
Liverpool must recover from last season's failure to finish in the top four, but Chelsea were even worse, finishing in the bottom half of the table. So it will be two teams with a lot to prove, as well as expensive signings (Chelsea's Mykhailo Mudryk and Enzo Fernandez, Liverpool's Darwin Nunez) who need to prove they can perform in the Premier League after a disappointing first season.
Then there's Pochettino, back in the Premier League and desperate to win his first game as Chelsea manager against Klopp.
2. Manchester City vs. Newcastle United (Aug. 19, 2023-Jan 13, 2024)
We all know what to expect from Manchester City, but this game will determine whether Newcastle are the real deal under Eddie Howe and whether they can challenge for the title in 2023-24.
The Magpies are expected to have significantly strengthened their squad by the start of the season, in preparation for their first Champions League campaign in 20 years, and they will view this game as a litmus test of their progress.
A title challenge at St James' Park appears to be a year or two away, but Newcastle defied expectations by finishing fourth last season, so don't count them out – especially if they get a positive result at the Etihad.
3. Arsenal vs. Manchester United (Sept. 2-May 11, 2024)
Last season's runners-up face the team that finished third, so this is a game between the two teams most likely to dethrone City this season. However, both teams must improve their squads in order to maintain the progress they made last season, and managers Arteta and Ten Hag have a busy summer ahead of them in terms of recruitment.
Arsenal-Manchester United games are rarely disappointing in terms of action and significance, and this one will be no exception. It will provide us with vital information about the two teams' prospects for the upcoming season.
4. Man City vs Arsenal (October 7, 2023- March 30, 2024)
Manchester City, the current champions, will face Arsenal, last season's runners-up, in a highly anticipated match on October 7 at the Emirates. But the thrills don't stop there! The Gunners will then travel to Etihad Stadium for another epic clash on March 30.
5. Arsenal- Tottenham (September 23, 2023- April 27, 2024)
On September 23, the Emirates Stadium will host the first north London derby of the season. The action doesn't stop there, as Arsenal will travel to Tottenham for the rematch on April 27 - the fourth and final match of 2023/24.
6. Liverpool - Everton (October 21, 2023- March 16, 2024)
Liverpool and Everton will resume their bitter rivalry in the first Merseyside derby on October 21. The two teams will face off again on March 16 at Goodison Park.
7. Manchester United - Manchester City (October 28- March 2)
On October 28, Manchester United and Manchester City will square off at Old Trafford. The rematch will be held on March 2 at the Etihad Stadium.
Manchester United has not won the Premier League title in ten years. They have never finished higher than City in the table since.
Ten Hag has raised hopes that United will challenge again soon, but they remain far behind Pep Guardiola's City. However, each new season brings new hope, and if United strengthens well this summer, they will be able to challenge City.
8. Manchester United vs. Liverpool (December 16 and April 6)
Liverpool and Manchester United, who may both fancy themselves as title contenders, meet on Saturday, December 16.
The North West rivals will then meet again on Saturday, April 6, as the season nears its conclusion.
9. Manchester City - Liverpool (November 25 and March 9)
Despite Liverpool's slide last season, this match remains the one that defines this Premier League era.
No team has consistently challenged City in recent years as Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool, and they may enter the new season as second favourites for the title due to their pedigree and proven players such as Alisson, Virgil van Dijk, and Mohamed Salah.
Liverpool are undeniably in transition, but their impressive run of form in the final weeks of last season demonstrated that they can still blow teams away.
So, if Liverpool can regain their best form, aided by new signing Alexis MacAllister and any other summer additions, this game could be between the two teams most likely to win.
10. Arsenal vs. Tottenham Hotspur (Sept. 23, 2023- April 27, 2024)
This will be Postecoglou's first North London derby as manager of Tottenham Hotspur. When it comes to closing the gap between his club and the Gunners, the Premier League's first Australian manager faces a difficult task.
Postecoglou faced a similar challenge in Glasgow two summers ago when he took over Celtic after Steven Gerrard led Rangers to their first title in a decade, and he quickly turned the tide in the Old Firm rivalry. So taking on Arteta and making Spurs the No. 1 team in North London will not intimidate him.
Expect the new Spurs manager to have instilled a better mentality in his underachieving squad by the time this game comes around.
