Manchester City will be without former captain Ilkay Gundogan, who left for Barcelona, and Riyad Mahrez, who has signed for Saudi side Al Ahli. Croatian duo Mateo Kovacic and Josko Gvardiol are the only two new arrivals in the transfer market so far.

Going forward, the 2023-24 season, which begins 76 days after the end of the 2022-23 season, will consist of 34 weekends, three-midweek rounds and a Bank Holiday match round. Also, no rounds of fixtures will take place within 48 hours of each other around Christmas and New Year of 2024.
