The Premier League will enter the business end of the season following the international break, and there’s still plenty to play for towards the top of the table. So, we’re taking a look at Man City’s next five Premier League fixtures.
Pep Guardiola’s men are still in the FA Cup, and the Champions League as well as competing for a third league title in a row. With City still competing in numerous competitions, this could hand league leaders Arsenal a big advantage.
The Gunners were knocked out of the Europa League last week by Sporting Lisbon, and now only have the Premier League to focus on. Following this, Mikel Arteta’s side increased their lead at the top of the table to eight points with an important win over Crystal Palace.
City were in FA Cup action at the weekend, beating Burnley 6-0 at the Etihad Stadium.
FULL-TIME | We’re going to Wembley! 💪

So, who do Man City play in their next five Premier League fixtures?
Man City’s Next Five Premier League Fixtures
- Man City vs Liverpool – 12:30, Sat 1 April
- Southampton vs Man City – 17:30, Sat 8 April
- Man City vs Leicester City – 17:30, Sat 15 April
- Brighton vs Man City – 16:30, Sun 23 April (potentially moved due to FA Cup participation)
- Man City vs Arsenal – 20:00, Wed 26 April
It’s fair to say that the next five for City are all hard games, with each team facing different circumstances. And, in between all of this, City take on Guardiola’s old team in Bayern Munich in the Champions League quarter-finals. They also play an FA Cup semi-final at Wembley against Sheffield United.
Putting this into context, City still have a potential of 18 games left to play this season (at least 14) depending on their involvement in the FA Cup and Champions League. As for Arsenal, they have just 10 games left of their season, and they’re all in the league.
It’s going to be a thrilling end to what’s been a fantastic season.
