Man City Premier League schedule: Remaining fixtures, points prediction for 2024 title run-in | Sporting News

Must read

Once again, Manchester City find themselves in a battle with Arsenal for the Premier League title.

While the Gunners were right in the mix until they faded badly a year ago, Mikel Arteta’s team look in better shape to sustain a challenge in 2023/24.

All eyes will be on their respective fixture schedules between now and the final day of the season on May 19. Man City, fresh from a 3-1 derby win over Manchester United
, have a handful of eminently winnable games interspersed between some seriously difficult-looking challenges.

Here, The Sporting News breaks down Man City’s remaining schedule, plus a points prediction for the games they have coming up, based on this season’s form and the result in the same game in 2022/23. Will they manage to make it a record-breaking four Premier League titles in a row?

Man City prediction for run-in 2023/24: How many points will they get?

Man City have a handful of difficult matches remaining in the Premier League in 2023/24, plus some more winnable games on paper. After a tense and enthralling 1-1 draw at Liverpool
, here’s a run-down of those fixtures, and a prediction of how many points they might expect to get.

Arsenal (H): March 31

This was perhaps City’s biggest remaining test on paper: Arsenal have been in tremendous form in 2024, and a repeat of their 4-1 thrashing at a similar stage of last season always felt highly unlikely. City dominated possession but there were very few chances to speak of throughout a game that was hardly a classic.

Result last season: Man City 4-1 Arsenal
Prediction this season: Man City 2-2 Arsenal
Final score: Man City 0-0 Arsenal

Aston Villa (H): April 3

Villa are flying high this season and produced a superb performance to beat City in the reverse fixture. Guardiola responded by picking a nimble ball-playing team, resting Erling Haaland and Kevin De Bruyne on the bench. In their absence, Phil Foden took centre stage with a magnificent hat-trick. Rodri opened the scoring before Jhon Duran levelled for Villa midway through the first half.

Result last season: Man City 3-1 Aston Villa
Prediction this season: Man City 3-1 Aston Villa
Final score: Man City 4-1 Aston Villa

Crystal Palace (A): April 6

A slightly worrying start for City saw them fall behind but De Bruyne’s magical first goal kickstarted their comeback. Rico Lewis scored seconds into the second half to take the lead before De Bruyne teed up Haaland for his 30th of the season. The Belgian then bagged his 100th goal for the club as City took all three points.

Result last season: Crystal Palace 0-1 Man City
Prediction this season: Crystal Palace 0-2 Man City
Final score: Crystal Palace 2-4

Luton Town (H): April 13

Luton have given some of the big boys a real scare at Kenilworth Road this season, but away games are a different proposition. It was always hard to see them keeping City at bay and that proved to be the case as City went ahead within two minutes through a Daiki Hashikoa own goal, and it was all one-way traffic from there.

Result last season: N/A
Prediction this season: Man City 3-0 Luton Town
Final score: Man City 5-1 Luton Town

Brighton (A): April 25

Brighton have found it difficult to balance league and European commitments at times this season and there is a concern their campaign is beginning to fizzle out. City were utterly ruthless in getting the job done, as two goals from Phil Foden I’d posted them to a 4-0 win

Result last season: Brighton 1-1 Man City
Prediction this season: Brighton 1-3 Man City
Final score: Brighton 0-4 Man City

Nottingham Forest (A): April 28

Forest held City to a draw here last season and almost did the same to Liverpool in early 2024, and they gave the champions a real scare in the first half of this game. Indeed, had Chris Wood had his shooting boots on, they could have taken at least a point. However, Josko Gvardiol’s goal put City in front in the first half before substitute Erling Haaland made the win safe.

Result last season: Nottingham Forest 1-1 Man City
Prediction this season: Nottingham Forest 0-3 Man City
Final score: Nottingham Forest 0-2 Man City

Wolves (H): May 4

Wolves have had an excellent season under Gary O’Neil and, as they showed in a 2-1 victory over the champions at Molineux in September. However, they were overwhelmed at the Etihad, as Erling Haaland bettered his hat-trick in last season’s corresponding fixture with a four-goal haul.

Result last season: Man City 3-0 Wolves
Prediction this season: Man City 2-1 Wolves
Final score: Man City 5-1 Wolves

Fulham (A): May 11

City were narrow winners here last season, but this was a far more one-sided contest. Josko Gvardiol scored twice
in a game in which Fulham barely threatened Ederson in the visiting goal.

Result last season: Fulham 1-2 Man City
Prediction this season: Fulham 1-3 Man City
Final score: Fulham 0-4 Man City

Tottenham (A): May 14

This was probably the last game carrying genuine trepidation for City. They have a lousy record at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, their FA Cup victory there earlier this season ending a run of five consecutive losses without even scoring a goal. After a 3-3 draw at the Etihad in the reverse game, nerves were shredded in this one until Haaland scored his second of the game from the penalty spot in stoppage time.

Result last season: Tottenham 1-0 Man City
Prediction this season: Tottenham 2-2 Man City
Final score: Tottenham 0-2 Man City

West Ham (H): May 19

West Ham haven’t had a good time of it against the Premier League’s best sides, and they lost this game 3-0 last season. City will either be in party mode or will need a result to become champions. Either way, West Ham are not likely to have enough to stop them.

Result last season: Man City 3-0 West Ham
Prediction this season: Man City 4-1 West Ham
