Five English Premier League Clubs to Watch out for

Tottenham

Tottenham will start their 2022/23 Premier League campaign at home to Southampton on August 6 followed by a trip to London rivals Chelsea on August 13. Antonio Conte’s side, who finished fourth last season to qualify for the Champions League, face north London rivals Arsenal at The Emirates on October 1 with the return fixture at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on January 14.

Forest’s East Midlands rivalry with Leicester City will resume on October 1 at the King Power Stadium, with the return fixture at the City Ground on January 14. The club’s Boxing Day fixture sees them go to Old Trafford for a trip to Manchester United.

The team stunned Arsenal and Manchester United in the English FA Cup last season as they beat the two Premier League sides. This team have two Champions League title to their name and one Super Cup title. Their return to the league is one football fans have long waited for and it is expected that they will not go back to the Championship anytime soon. 

Newcastle United

Newcastle United will host newly-promoted Nottingham Forest on the opening weekend of the 2022/23 Premier League season. After a trip to Brighton on the second weekend, Eddie Howe’s Magpies host Premier League champions Manchester City on August 20, before finishing the month with trips to Wolves and Liverpool. 

Howe faces former club Bournemouth at home on September 17, while the visit of Brentford on October 8 marks the first anniversary of the Newcastle’s Saudi-backed takeover.

Newcastle travels to Leicester on Boxing Day, hosts Leeds on New Year’s Eve, and then travels to Arsenal on January 2, before concluding their campaign away at Chelsea. The reason why they made this list is because of their new ownership, the new owners are ready to fund the club and so we will be expecting big players to come into the club very soon. 

Liverpool head coach Jurgen Klopp in an interview called the club the new money power club which means the club will spoil the transfer market with the kind of signing they will be making. 

Aston Villa 

Aston Villa will begin their 2022/23 Premier League campaign with a trip to the newly-promoted Bournemouth on August 6. Steven Gerrard’s side follows this up with home matches against Everton and West Ham, plus away games at Crystal Palace and Arsenal in a busy August.

Aston Villa’s final game before the season pauses for the winter World Cup will be against Brighton on the weekend of November 12/13. They will then return to action on Boxing Day against Liverpool.
