Leeds United’s 2022/23 Premier League Fixtures Announced – Key Highlights

Leeds United avoided relegation from the Premier League by the skin of their teeth last season. 

A tumultuous season highlighted by Marcelo Bielsa’s sacking in favour of former RB Leipzig manager Jesse Marsch saw the Whites finish 17th in the Premier League table.

Leeds’ last-gasp 2-1 away victory over competition debutants Brentford on the final weekend of 2021/22 ensured another top-flight season for the Yorkshire outfit. 

It took the Elland Road side six winless league matches to gain their first Premier League triumph last term and Marsch will hope for a far better start in 2022/23.

However, Leeds may have to do it without standout winger Raphinha, who is seemingly on the verge of leaving the club in pursuit of a high-profile destination. 

Despite Barcelona’s long-term interest in the Brazilian forward, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur are ready to throw the 25-year-old a lifeline in the Premier League.

Marsch is already moving in the market to replace his outgoing star.

As per The Sun, the Whites have recently lodged a £17million bid to acquire the signature of up-and-coming Paris Saint-Germain starlet Arnaud Kalimuendo.

When does Leeds’ 2022/23 Premier League season start?

Leeds’ 2022/23 Premier League season kicks off with a home clash against Wolverhampton Wanderers on August 13. 

When do Leeds take on Chelsea?

Marsch’s men face a formidable test in the shape of Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea, only two matchdays into the new season. 

The return leg of one of the most exciting 2022/23 Premier League fixtures will take place at Stamford Bridge on March 3, 2023. 

When do Leeds take on Manchester United?

The latest edition of the long-standing rivalry between Leeds and Manchester United falls on September 17 at Old Trafford. 

After losing both last season’s league meetings with the Red Devils, the Whites will be keen to exact their revenge. 

If they fail to achieve that in Manchester, the next opportunity will come on February 11, 2023, at Elland Road. 

When do Leeds take on Arsenal?

Another tasty-looking match-up against Arsenal arrives on October 15 in Yorkshire, with the Emirates Stadium showpiece scheduled for April 1, 2023. 

Like it was the case against United, Leeds lost both seasonal games against the Gunners in 2021/22.

When do Leeds take on Liverpool?

Arguably the most challenging league travel in the first half of the season comes on October 29, as the Whites head to Anfield to tackle Liverpool. 

The sides will lock horns again at Elland Road on April 15, 2023.

When do Leeds take on Tottenham Hotspur?

Leeds’ final Premier League fixture before the season pauses for the winter World Cup will be against Antonio Conte’s Tottenham on November 12. 

The old foes go up against each other on the final weekend of the 2022/23 season in Yorkshire. 

When do Leeds take on Manchester City?

The Whites’ post-World Cup action restarts at Elland Road with a mouth-watering clash against defending champions Manchester City on Boxing Day.

The rematch will take place at Etihad Stadium on May 6, 2023.
