Premier League 2023/24 fixture release: FPL reaction

The fixtures for the 2023/24 Premier League season have been released this morning.

Manchester City begin their latest title defence with an away fixture at 2022/23 Championship winners Burnley, a match that kicks off the new campaign in the televised slot on Friday 11 August.

Liverpool’s trip to Chelsea is the most eye-catching fixture of the opening weekend, while newly promoted Luton Town and Sheffield United face Brighton and Hove Albion and Crystal Palace respectively in their 2022/23 curtain-raisers.

Man City’s early schedule leaps off the page, as they avoid a ‘big-six’ side in the first seven Gameweeks – albeit with a clash against Newcastle United to come in Gameweek 2.

Arsenal have also been handed a decent opening run of three fixtures, with four of their first six games at the Emirates.

Liverpool have a tricky-ish start with Chelsea, Newcastle and Aston Villa to come in the first four Gameweeks, although Mohamed Salah looks to be the stand-out captaincy pick in Gameweek 2. Otherwise, Erling Haaland will again no doubt be perma-captain for many Fantasy managers in the opening half-dozen Gameweeks.

Newcastle have arguably been handed the toughest task, their first five fixtures all against clubs who finished in the top half last season.

SEASON TICKER UPDATED

Our Season Ticker has been updated both on the sidebar and in our Premium Members Area, with all 20 Premier League clubs sorted by fixture difficulty in the first six Gameweeks in the graphic above.

The Premium Members ticker is customisable, too.

You can sort by difficulty, rotation pairings and ‘relative’ difficulty (something that factors in the strength of the team), while you can also remove clubs and Gameweeks from the outlook, add your own difficulty ratings, sort by home/away matches and filter by attack/defence.

It’s one of the many benefits available to subscribers – make sure you sign up before the 2023/24 season to give yourself all the tools you need for a successful FPL campaign.

FIXTURES: INTERNATIONALS, WINTER BREAK + MORE

World Cup 2022: Minutes and rests of the Premier League players

We’ll get a total of four Gameweeks before our first international break in September.

Further international fortnights will follow after Gameweeks 8 and 12.

The UEFA Champions League and Europa League group stages will start on September 19-21, after Gameweek 5.

Aston Villa begin their UEFA Europa Conference League campaign a month earlier, a two-legged play-off on August 24 and 31 after Gameweeks 2 and 3 respectively.

Our first midweek round of matches is Gameweek 15, which takes place on December 5-6.

There are three Gameweeks (18-20) over the festive period but neatly spaced out to avoid the 48-hour tuanrounds we’ve encountered in previous years. Manchester City will blank in the first of those Gameweeks, however, due to a clash with the FIFA World Club Cup.

The winter break will take place between 13-20 January 2024, bisecting Gameweeks 21 and 22.

The season ends on Sunday 19 May, with Brighton and Hove Albion v Manchester United and Manchester City v West Ham United among the final fixtures of 2022/23.

    Some more significant issues I haven't yet seen noted on here:

    1. This vertical loading overlay when you're loading profile pages on mobile (android & ios). I assume this isn't the intended design https://prnt.sc/nzN4P7vcxc2h

    2. The three dot menus (on android and ios) usually opens a plain black window for me https://prnt.sc/GR6QHJeJpkHS

    3. This Toggle All "button" doesn't do anything (the others do)

    https://prnt.sc/aArfbO_CGT43

    4. The toggles don't have outlines so you can't see easily it they're on or off

    1 & 2 were introduced in an older update months ago. There's no way that would get through with a tester. It's the same every update. I sent an open application less than a year ago 😉

      Also I flagged this up yesterday but got a weird response from Redlightning:

      5. Profile button is unresponsive on chrome desktop (does nothing) https://prnt.sc/QInzJDSvGSuh

      (#1 is also true no chrome desktop)

    Why don't we enjoy the summer for a bit and then come back to focus on FPL?

      Is this an invitation? What we doing?

      But you are missing the key point for many who follow fpl this is how they enjoy the summer. Have you seen the pale faces on those stats contributors/and double gameweek predictors?

      This is the best time of the year

    With the fixtures released I see the usual chancers are offering their opinions on twitter and elsewhere. Best think to do is delete fpl twitter. I went from around 1 million at Christmas to a 33k finish and I credit this to deleting twitter and stop listening to podcasts. If you watch a lot of foootball you will make better decisions that listening to the chancers and it’s more fun to back yourself anyway. Information diet is very important so when people are recommending Luton strikers in a few weeks, remember they’re lunatics

      I disagree.

      Once Neymar signs for Luton, he should do quite well with those fixtures.

      I don't use fpl twitter a lot of it - look at me - LOOK AT ME - LISTEN TO ME. Insert various injokes etc.
      Not for me at all. Pure noise.

      I much prefer to make my own mind up based on price/form/fixtures. That never changes.

    Ticker showing me every team starting with a double in GW1. Guess the BB GW1 crowd will be happy.
