The 2022/23 Premier League season starts afresh when Crystal Palace hosts Arsenal on Friday, Aug 5. This match will be a showcase, while the remainder of Matchweek 1 will take place on Saturday and Sun.
The Gunners made a good deal this summer by bringing in Gabriel Jesus from Man City and Oleksandr Ziinchenko from Moscow. They are looking to become a Champions League contender.
Crystal Palace made some changes to their squad, too, following a 12th-place finish last season. The Eagles added Chris Richards, an American from defense, and Cheick Doucoure, a Lens player.
After last season’s defeat to Brentford, Arsenal will be opening the English top flight campaign for the second time in a row.

Crystal Palace vs Arsenal lineups
Jack Butland, goalkeeper, will be out of action for the first match of the 2022/23 seasons due to injury. Summer signing Sam Johnstone will also be absent. Vicente Guaita, 35 years old, will now be responsible for goalkeeping duties.
The Eagles are also without James McArthur, so Michael Olise is an injury concern. It remains to be seen if Chris Richards, the new center-back, will make it into the starting line-up. He will need to replace Joachim Andersen and Marc Guehi, the incumbent central defenders.
