Erik ten Hag gets dream start

-Ikenna Okafor

The Premier League 2022-23 season will begin with a London derby as Crystal Palace host Arsenal on August 5, while Erik ten Hag will start his reign at home to Brighton and Hove Albion.

The Dutchman can expect a rapturous receptions from the Red Devils fan base who will be hoping he can turn around their fortunes after dismal 2021-22.

United fans will still be scarred by the 4-0 thumping they took on the south coast last month too.

Elsewhere on the opening day of the season, champions Manchester City begin the defence of their Premier League crown at West Ham (August 7, 4.30pm) while title rivals Liverpool travel to newly-promoted Fulham (August 6, 12.30pm).

Championship play-off winners Nottingham Forest, who return to the top flight after 23 years away, begin their campaign away at Newcastle United (August 6, 3pm) – who will be hoping they can ride their momentum from the back end of last term into the new one.
