This weekend’s Premier League games fall around the turn of the year. In 2022, Manchester City won another Premier League title, Americans started buying Premier League clubs for fun and some great players arrived. Erling Haaland transformed the Premier League into his personal playground.
What can 2023 bring? Well, if the early part of the 2022-23 season is any indicator, Arsenal are on a resurgence back to the top. The Gunners top the table at the turn of the year, ahead of Manchester City and Newcastle United. As mentioned, Erling Haaland looks poised to challenge the Premier League goalscoring records. The Norwegian has 18 league goals in just 13 appearances in the current campaign.
The luminaries around the New Year’s festivities provide a great welcome to 2023. The final game of 2022 shows first-class Arsenal on the road in Brighton. The Seagulls have had another decent season all things considered. In fact, although it is a bit early in the season, Brighton are not far from European spots in the table. Arsenal have bigger ambitions than that. Mikel Arteta sees this game as a way to signal Arsenal’s intentions in the competition.
Then the first game of 2023 is between Aston Villa and Tottenham Hotspur. Villa has had a high and low season, but is comfortably in the middle of the table. Meanwhile, Tottenham has that fourth place in the ranking. Still, the challengers, Manchester United and Liverpool, still have a game in hand against the Spurs.
