Manchester City will open the 2024/25 season with a trip to Chelsea.

Pep Guardiola’s side will lock horns with Enzo Maresca’s team at Stamford Bridge on Sunday 18 January at 16:30 (UK) after becoming the first men’s team in English football history to win four straight top-flight titles last term

The fixture represents our 28th top-flight curtain raiser since the competitions rebrand in 1992 and we have won 15 of our previous 27 assignments and losing just six.


Throughout first day matches we have scored a swathe of spectacular goals and recorded vital wins which has set us on the path to glory.

From Sergio Aguero’s stunning debut against Swansea to David Silva’s cool finish against Newcastle, we’ve selected some of our favourites after our 2024/25 Premier League schedule was revealed.
