PALACE have been handed a tough start to the Premier League season following the release of the fixtures for the 2022/23 campaign.

The Eagles ended last season strongly under Patrick Vieira, taking 10 points from their final six games to finish 12th.

This was after overcoming a difficult start – they played six of the seven toughest teams in their first 10 matches, according to pre-season odds.

Vieira’s side have once again been handed some tricky opening fixtures, hosting Arsenal on the opening day before trips to Liverpool and Man City in two of the next three weekends.

While the Gunner will be a tough opener, Palace can take confidence knowing the last time they played this fixture they came out on top against Mikel Arteta's side.

Palace can take comfort later in the season with a couple of easier runs – they play the three promoted sides in successive fixtures either side of the World Cup in November and December, before enjoying the same run in the final three games of the campaign.
