Manchester City 2017/18 Fixtures

welcometomanchesterpepManchester City kick off their Premier League campaign at newly promoted Brighton on August 12.

But after matches at home to and away at Bournemouth, Pep Guardiola’s team face their first real challenge when they take on at the Etihad Stadium.

City travel to for the first derby of the season on December 9 before hosting their rivals on April 7.

When’s their trickiest run?

As we enter April there are three fixtures which look particularly tricky – Everton (A), Manchester United (H) and Spurs (A).

When can they pick up the most points?

On the back of the second international break in October they return to this run of games – Stoke (H), Burnley (H) and (A).

What’s their run-in like?

They kick off April at home to Man Utd and away at Spurs. The final four, however, are far easier and their last two home matches are against Swansea and Huddersfield.

Who have they got after European weeks?

Pep Guardiola might have something to say about the following three games coming directly after group-stage fixtures – (A), (H) and Manchester United (A).

What one fixture will the fans be looking forward to the most?

They don’t play Manchester United at home until April, so perhaps the visit of Liverpool and the renewal of Guardiola vs Klopp on September 9 will offer some early-season excitement.
