The 2022/23 Premier League season will kick off this week and the first game of the new campaign sees Crystal Palace host Arsenal.

The Gunners head to Selhurst Park on Friday night to officially lift the curtain on the latest campaign of English football’s top flight.

Both teams have been active in the summer transfer window and will be targeting improved finishes on 2021/22 where the Eagles finished 12th, just three points off the top half, and the Gunners narrowly missed out on Champions League football with a fifth place finish.

The match will be live on TV and here is everything you need to know about what channels it is on, how to live stream the action and more:
