The Premier League fixture schedule for the 24/25 season has officially been announced, providing us with a look into what Manchester City's calendar could look like.

The next season of the Premier League will see Man City in pursuit of another historic achievement, being the first to win four PL titles in a row; they will now go one step further and try to make it five in a row.

On Tuesday, the official fixture list was confirmed, from dates, days and even potential days away from the League and instead commitment to the Carabao Cup and FA Cup.

While we do remain a long way away until the start of the 24/25 season, the preparations have started and for fans, the excitement of the club returning will be growing as the days go by.

It's to be noted that potential dates for the Carabao Cup and FA Cup have not been included in this schedule. Still, for the Aston Villa fixture on the 26th of April, that day could also have a potential semi-final for the Cityzens.

The 17th of May will feature the final of the FA Cup, and Pep Guardiola will be fighting to retain their trophy after missing out to Man United last season, 2-1.

Going back to the Premier League, Man City will have quite the thrilling fixture to set their campaign off as they meet Chelsea. The two sides didn't register a win over the other last season in the Premier League, with two draws being the final results, 4-4 and 1-1.

Moving onto the next month, Man City will face an encounter with their title race opponent of the last two seasons, Arsenal. Even though it will be really early in the season, this will be a highly anticipated game and will have great importance for both sides in their dreams of winning the League.

After facing the Gunners, City will then turn their attention to Newcastle United.

The first Manchester PL derby comes in December and then again in April. Man United will be determined to get themselves a win over the current champions, after failing to do so in the League last season and conceding three goals in both meetings, 3-0 and 3-1.

On the final fixture of the Premier League, it will be Fulham that Manchester City take on; and that could either be a formality game where City are already winners of the League or, it could be last-day drama where City need to attain a victory if there is a title race going on.

Whatever the scenario, supporters will be looking forward to the start of the 24/25 season and what it has in store for Manchester City.
