Our 24/25 league and cup fixtures: Month by month

Kai Havertz celebrates a goal during our win against Bournemouth

The release of the 2024/25 Premier League fixtures will have got our supporters all excited for the new campaign, as planning for the next 10 months can begin in earnest!

To help, we’ve dissected the season into monthly chunks, analysing the key games, seeing where our cup matches will slot into our schedule, and pinpointing the international breaks.

August

Martin Odegaard scores against Wolves

The season begins with a visit of Gary O’Neil’s Wolves on Saturday, August 17 at 3pm UK time, a side we have won each of our last six games against - a nice omen as we look to get off to a winning start.

Our first away game will see us head to Villa Park to face an Aston Villa side itching to get their Champions League campaign underway a few weeks later, before the opening month rounds off with a visit from Brighton & Hove Albion, now under the management of 31-year-old Fabian Hurzeler. By this time, we’ll know our eight Champions League opponents following the draw on August 29.

Sat 17  Wolverhampton Wanderers (H)    
Sat 24  Aston Villa (A)    
Sat 31  Brighton & Hove Albion (H)

September

Kai Havertz celebrates scoring against Tottenham Hotspur

What looks to be a huge month begins with an international break, but domestic action returns with a bang when we head to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium for the first north London derby. We’ll get our League Cup campaign underway in the third round the following midweek, before another tough road trip at champions Manchester City.

Then comes our first foray into the new-look Champions League with the first of eight league stage matches, before our first encounter with a newly promoted side when Leicester City return to north London.

October

Bukayo Saka scores against Liverpool

Another busy month begins with our second Champions League game before another visit from one of the new boys in Southampton. Then follows another international break, after which we head to the Vitality Stadium for a meeting with Bournemouth. 

A big week then sees us return to European action before we host another side competing in the competition in Liverpool, while a potential League Cup fourth-round tie could round off October.

November

Leandro Trossard scores against Chelsea

We begin the month with our longest away league trip of the campaign when we head to Newcastle United’s St James’ Park, but following that comes a lengthy run of Premier Lague clashes inside the capital that takes us into 2025.

More European action comes though before a game against Chelsea, which could be moved from its current Saturday slot with the Blues likely to be in Europa League action the previous Thursday. After the final international break of the year, another Champions League fixture is sandwiched between a home game against Nottingham Forest and a trip to West Ham United, now managed by Julen Lopetegui.

Sat 2  Newcastle United (A)

December

Kai Havertz celebrates scoring against Brentford

Traditionally one of the busiest months of the year gets underway in style when Manchester United head to Emirates Stadium for a midweek fixture under the lights, before we head to Craven Cottage. Our sixth Champions League group game then takes place before that competition takes a six-week break.

Everton are next up, and after a potential League Cup tie, the festive fixtures get underway. Four days before Christmas we head to Crystal Palace, and we will spend Boxing Day at home when Ipswich Town pitch up for their first league visit in 22 years. 2024 ends with a trip to Brentford, currently scheduled for two days before New Year’s Eve.

January

Leandro Trossard scores against Brighton

A new year sees us tangle with Brighton first up, and as the League Cup comes towards its conclusion, the FA Cup gets underway with the third round to take place around the weekend of January 11-12.

Then comes a run of massive matches, starting with a midweek north London derby with Tottenham in N5. Aston Villa then turn up a few days later, ahead of the final two rounds of the Champions League league stage which are sandwiched between a trip to Molineux.

February

Gabriel Martinelli scores against Manchester City

The big games keep coming as we enter February, with Manchester City heading to Emirates Stadium to kick off the month. That is one of four guaranteed games, with potentially four others to come if the cup competitions fill our agenda.

Should we finish between ninth and 24th in the Champions League table, then we’ll require a two-legged play-off game to try and advance to the last 16 stage. These are between an away game against newly-promoted Leicester City, with a home game against West Ham to follow. Currently, our only away midweek league game of the season comes against Nottingham Forest late in the month.

Sat 1  Manchester City (H)    
w/c 3  League Cup SF leg 2
Sat 8  FA Cup R4
11-12  Champions League play-offs leg 1
Sat 15  Leicester City (A)    
18-19  Champions League play-offs leg 2
Sat 22  West Ham United (H)    
Tue 25  Nottingham Forest (A)

March

Man Utd A 2324

There are just two Premier League games scheduled in March, but they’re both tasty affairs. After a potential FA Cup fifth-round date, we head to Old Trafford looking to replicate last season’s victory in the red half of Manchester, and a week later Chelsea visit our corner of the capital for a London derby.

We’ll be hoping that we’re still be fighting on all fronts by this stage, which would mean that game could move should we reach the League Cup final scheduled for the following day. The other key dates this month could be the Champions League round of 16, with the FA Cup reaching its quarter-final stage following the last international break of the season.

Sat 1  FA Cup R5
4-5  Champions League R16 leg 1
Sat 8  Manchester United (A)    
11-12  Champions League R16 leg 2
Sat 15  Chelsea (H)    
Sun 16  League Cup final
17-25  international break
Sat 29  FA Cup QF

April

Gabriel Jesus celebrates scoring against Crystal Palace

Our Premier League season gets back on track with a midweek game against Fulham at Emirates Stadium, before heading to Goodison Park for possibly the final time. Then comes a potential Champions League quarter-final, punctuated by a home game against Brentford.

Our first trip to Portman Road since 2001 follows that, while we’ll be hoping to reach the semi-finals of the FA Cup at the end of the month, or if not we’ll be hosting Crystal Palace on the same weekend. Should we reach the final four of the Champions League, the first leg will conclude a potentially hectic month.

Tue 1  Fulham (H)    
Sat 5  Everton (A)
8-9  Champions League QF leg 1    
Sat 12  Brentford (H)    
15-16 Champions League QF leg 2
Sat 19  Ipswich Town (A)    
Sat 26  Crystal Palace (H)
Sat 26  FA Cup SF
29-30  Champions League SF leg 1

May

Kai Havertz celebrates scoring against Newcastle United

As we reach the business end of the season, we welcome Bournemouth to north London before the second leg of a potential Champions League semi-final. Then comes the run-in of the Premier League season, with a trip to Anfield followed by a visit from Newcastle United.

That will come the day after the FA Cup final, which is due to take place before the end of the league season. Whatever happens in the cup, we’ll end our domestic campaign with a game at Southampton’s St Mary’s Stadium on Sunday, May 25, with the Champions League final scheduled six days later.

Sat 3  Bournemouth (H)
6-7  Champions League SF leg 2
Sat 10  Liverpool (A)    
Sat 17  FA Cup final
Sun 18. Newcastle United (H)    
Sun 25 Southampton (A)
