Champions Manchester City face West Ham away on the opening weekend of a 2022-23 Premier League campaign that will include a mid-season break for the World Cup in Qatar.

There will be no top-flight games after the weekend of 12-13 November until 26 December because of the World Cup.

The first fixture takes place on Friday, 5 August when Crystal Palace host Arsenal.

Liverpool play at promoted Fulham, with Nottingham Forest at Newcastle.

Forest are back in the Premier League for the first time since 1998-99.

The World Cup, which will feature both England and Wales, starts on 21 November. The final is on 18 December, eight days before the Premier League season resumes.

I Call True: Good news for footie fans that's for sure, and good to see Forest back in the Prem

Hopefully three points in the bag from Forest's return to the Premiership.

Should be a good season and with the world cup thrown in halfway through it'll give the smaller teams a break and might help the second half of the season for them.

Squeezing the World Cup in, I wonder if this will change how teams play their players tactically leading up to it?
