Premier League opening day fixtures simulated with horror start for Ten Hag's Man Utd but it's good news for Arsenal | The Sun
15th June 2022

THE Premier League fixtures are released on Thursday as all 20 clubs find out who they will face on the opening day of the 2022/23 season.

The first day of the campaign is set for Saturday, August 6 – just over seven weeks away.


And SunSport have done a simulation for the opening weekend's fixtures, with some mouthwatering games thrown up.

The eye-catching clash is undoubtedly Manchester United's trip to Tottenham as Erik ten Hag's spell as Red Devils boss gets underway against a much-improved Spurs side, who have already secured several new players in the summer window.

Man Utd and Tottenham are both set to fight it out for the top four once more, so a game of this magnitude could give an early indication as to who is in better nick.

Meanwhile, Arsenal have received a favourable simulation as they have been pitted against newly-promoted Fulham.
