English Premier League 2022-2023 season will be the 32nd season of the Premier League, the top English professional football league, since its establishment in 1992. The season will begin on 13 August 2022 and is scheduled to conclude on 13 May 2023. Manchester City will be the defending champions for the second successive year, after winning their third Premier League title in four seasons during 2021–22 The 2022-2023 season of the English Premier League will be the 32nd season of the competition. It is scheduled to begin on 13 August 2022 and conclude on 26 May 2023. The league will be contested by 20 teams, 17 of which will return from the 2021-2022 season and three of which will be promoted from the 2021-2022 EFL Championship. This will be the first season in which teams can use five substitutes in matches, following a ruling by FIFA. 


Furthermore, it has also been announced that VAR will continue to be used during matches in order to help referees with decision making. This comes after a number of high-profile incidents where VAR was not used, much to the frustration  of fans and players alike. The hope is that by using VAR, more accurate decisions will be made and there will be fewer controversial moments during matches. 


With the 2020-2021 season having been disrupted due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it is hoped that the 2022-2023 season will be able to return to some sense of normality. This means that fans will hopefully be able to return to stadiums in order to watch their team play live, although this will of course depend on the situation with the pandemic at the time. 


All in all, the upcoming season promises to be an exciting one, with plenty of twists and turns along the way. Be sure to follow your favourite team closely so you don’t miss a moment of the action!


All twenty clubs that competed in the 2021-22 season are expected to return for the new campaign. This will include newly promoted side Watford, who will be playing in the Premier League for the first time since the 2015-16 season. 

As with every other season, a number of high-profile fixtures will take place throughout the course of the campaign. These include derbies between Arsenal and Tottenham, as well as Chelsea and Fulham. 

All twenty clubs will play thirty-eight matches each, totalling 380 matches in the season.[1] It will be the first Premier League season to have a mid-season break in February. The league is also planning to introduce a new concussion substitute rule, whereby each team will be able to make up to two permanent substitutions for head injuries during a match.[2][3]

This will be the first season of the Premier League with Newcastle United, after their promotion from the 2020–21 EFL Championship. Brighton & Hove Albion, Burnley, Fulham, and West Bromwich Albion will all enter their sixth consecutive seasons in the top flight. 

The season will see Arsenal attempt to improve upon their 14th place finish in the 2020–21 season, as they aim to return to European football for the first time since the 2016–17 UEFA Europa League. Aston Villa, who narrowly avoided relegation last season, will also be looking to make significant strides forward under new manager Dean Smith. Elsewhere, Chelsea will look to close the gap on Manchester City and Liverpool at the top of the table, whilst both Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United will hope to continue their recent upturns in form and challenge for major honours once again. 


With a number of high-profile managerial changes taking place over the course of the summer, it promises to be an intriguing season all round. Who will come out on top? Be sure to follow all the action with our dedicated Premier League coverage here on Sports Mole!
