Premier League announce changes to three upcoming Manchester City fixtures



| Last Updated:


Manchester City’s Premier League matches against West Ham, Arsenal and Newcastle United have all been subject to change.

Pep Guardiola’s side begin their pursuit of an unprecedented fifth consecutive Premier League title next month, travelling to Stamford Bridge to face Chelsea in their opening match of the 2024/25 league campaign.

Manchester City clinched an historic fourth successive title in May, beating West Ham 3-1 at the Etihad Stadium to surpass the 90-point mark and lift the trophy for a sixth time in seven years, after two first-half goals from Phil Foden and Rodri’s second-half effort.

The Sky Blues are unbeaten in the Premier League since early December, and were also unbeaten at the Etihad Stadium throughout the entirety of the last league campaign, as City beat Arsenal to the Premier League trophy for a second consecutive season.

Manchester City will face Mikel Arteta’s side during the opening weeks of the new campaign, with the Blues having failed to beat the Gunners on all three occasions last season, including defeats in the FA Community Shield and at the Emirates Stadium.

Guardiola’s side will begin their season with an FA Community Shield clash against local rivals Manchester United, a repeat of May’s FA Cup Final, which Manchester City surprisingly lost 1-2.

City will play three matches prior to both the September and October international breaks, with four of the Blues’ opening six matches selected for television coverage in the UK.

The Premier League have announced changes to Manchester City’s matches against West Ham, Arsenal and Newcastle in the latest broadcast schedule.

Guardiola’s side will travel to the London Stadium to face West Ham at 17:30 (BST) on Saturday 31 August, meanwhile Manchester City will travel to St James’ Park on Saturday 28 September for a 12:30 (BST) kick-off against Newcastle.

Manchester City’s game against Arsenal at the Etihad Stadium will now take place on Sunday 22 September, with kick-off scheduled for 16:30 (BST).
