Southampton face a tricky start to the new Premier League campaign after the fixtures were announced on Thursday morning.

Ralph Hasenhuttl's side make the trip to North London to take on Tottenham on the opening day, with games against five of last season's top ten all in the first six matches.

The exception to that list is a meeting with Leeds United on August 13 in the first game of the campaign at St. Mary's.

A trip to the King Power Stadium to face Leicester City follows seven days later, and the opening month of the season is completed with back-to-back home games against Manchester United and Chelsea.

Molineux is the next stop for the Saints on September 3, before games against Brentford and Aston Villa come before the first international break.

Winter break

To accommodate the first ever winter World Cup, the Premier League season will pause after Southampton’s visit to Liverpool on Saturday 12th November to allow for the tournament in Qatar. 

Restarting in festive fashion on Boxing Day, Hasenhüttl’s men will take on Brighton at St Mary’s, before heading to the capital on New Year’s Eve for a clash with newly promoted Fulham

2023 begins with a home game against Nottingham Forest, with the Third Round of the Emirates FA Cup on January 7 before a trip to Goodison Park to face Everton a week later. 

With 10 games in the final two months of the campaign, April includes a St Mary’s double-header against Manchester City and Crystal Palace.

Saints face all three newly-promoted sides across the final six games of the campaign, before they host Liverpool on the final day of the season on May 28.

In preparation for the new campaign, Saints currently only have two pre-season friendlies announced - a match at SK Austria Klagenfurt on Monday 18 July before a home game against Villarreal on Saturday 30 July.
