Leeds United fixtures have been released and Jesse Marsch’s side start the new campaign at home to Wolverhampton Wanderers on August 6, followed by a trip south where they take on Southampton a week later.
Leeds United Fixtures: Third Season in the Premier League
Fans Pleased With Fixtures
The mutual feeling upon Leeds United fans is that despite a gloomy-looking May, where Leeds travel to the Etihad and The London Stadium as well as playing host to Newcastle United and Tottenham. The rest of the season is nicely spaced out and Leeds can be happy with the hand they’ve been dealt for the 2022/23 season.
The Big Six
Leeds’ record against the so-called big six last season was abysmal, losing all 12 games, so it will be a massive relief to see that at no point in the season do they have back-to-back games against the giants of English football.
The West Yorkshire club will look to rectify the mistakes of this season as the club survived relegation on the final day with a 2-1 at Brentford.
Wolves, Chelsea, Everton and Nottingham Forest are the first four teams to travel to Elland Road and Leeds will fancy picking up a positive amount of points in that period.
Premier League new boys Fulham and Bournemouth also travel to Leeds this side Christmas.
Confidence Key This Time Around
Leeds rolled over and died far too many times last season and the players’ confidence was shot. It’s true that “everyone plays the same team twice” of course, but with the way the fixtures have fallen for Leeds they stand a much better chance of not going on confidence-shattering losing streaks.
The opening couple of months, in particular, possess a really good opportunity for the Yorkshire giants to get a respectable and nerve-settling amount of points on the board early doors and set themselves up for a good and progressive season.
