This weekend’s Premier League fixtures fall around the turn of the year. In 2022, Manchester City won another Premier League title, Americans started buying Premier League clubs for fun and some great players arrived. Namely, Erling Haaland transformed the Premier League into his personal playground.
What can 2023 bring? Well, if the first portion of the 2022/23 campaign is any indicator, Arsenal are on a resurgence back to the top. The Gunners are top of the table at the turn of the year, with something of a cushion over Manchester City and Newcastle United. As stated, Erling Haaland looks set to challenge Premier League goal-scoring records. The Norwegian has 18 league goals in just 13 appearances in the current campaign.
The fixtures surrounding the New Year festivities provide some great welcomes to 2023. The last game of 2022 features top-of-the-table Arsenal on the road at Brighton. The Seagulls are having another decent season all things considered. In fact, even though it is somewhat early in the season, Brighton is not far off European spots in the table. Arsenal have bigger aspirations than that. Mikel Arteta sees this game as a way to state Arsenal’s intent in the league.
Then, the first game of 2023 pits Aston Villa against Tottenham Hotspur. Villa has had an up and down season, but sits comfortably middle of the table. Meanwhile, Tottenham holds that fourth spot in the table. Yet, its challengers, Manchester United and Liverpool, have a game in hand over Spurs.
NBC’s crew is back in the States after a trip to pitchside desks in rain-soaked England. There is buffer coverage around each game, including the midweek fixtures. However, some of that is on Peacock, just like a number of the games.
