Premier League announces changes to three upcoming Manchester City matches

Manchester City’s Premier League matches against West Ham, Arsenal and Newcastle United all saw changes.

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

Manchester City secured their historic fourth consecutive title in May, beating West Ham 3-1 at the Etihad Stadium to surpass the 90-point mark and lift the trophy for the sixth time in seven years, with Phil Foden scoring twice in the first half and Rodri adding a second-half strike.

The Sky Blues have been unbeaten in the Premier League since early December and also remained unbeaten throughout last league season at the Etihad Stadium, when City beat Arsenal to win the Premier League trophy for the second year in a row.

Manchester City will face Mikel Arteta’s side in the opening weeks of the new season after the Blues failed to beat the Gunners three times last season, including defeats in the FA Community Shield and at the Emirates Stadium.

Guardiola’s team will begin the 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 2-1.

City will play three games each before the international breaks in September and October, with four of the Blues’ first six games selected for television coverage in the UK.

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

Guardiola’s side travel to the London Stadium to face West Ham on Saturday 31 August at 5.30pm (BST), while Manchester City travel to St James’ Park on Saturday 28 September to face Newcastle at 12.30pm (BST).

Manchester City’s match against Arsenal at the Etihad Stadium will now take place on Sunday 22 September, with kick-off scheduled for 4:30pm (BST).
