Crystal Palace will be hoping to build on a successful first season under Patrick Vieira as the Frenchman continues to make his mark on the Eagles.
The Arsenal great has so far overseen a positive transformation in style of play since Roy Hodgson’s departure and has helped bring the feel-good factor back to Selhurst Park.
Palace fans were treated to a trip to Wembley as they reached the semifinals of the FA Cup last season while they finished comfortably above the relegation zone in 12th.
Turning draws (Palace and Brighton and Hove Albion drew the most league games last season with 15) into wins will be key if the south London outfit are to achieve a top-half finish.
Crystal Palace Premier League fixtures 2022/23
Crystal Palace’s 2022/23 fixtures will be released on Thursday, June 16 at 9 a.m. BST (4 a.m. ET). In addition to the near month-long break for the FIFA World Cup (Nov. 14-Dec. 18), there will be two FIFA international breaks: Sept. 19-27, 2022 and March 20-28, 2023.
According to a report in The Times, a total of 16 Premier League matchdays will be played before the FIFA World Cup break, and the remaining 22 following the World Cup.
In order to squeeze in 16 Premier League matchdays before the World Cup, there will need to be two midweek slates. A midweek in August (Aug. 31 would make most sense to avoid early season fixture congestion and potential injuries) and another on Oct. 19 are the available slots.
Two midweek dates post-World Cup will also be required given the two weekends dedicated to the FA Cup in January. If the Premier League maintains its three-matchday tradition around the holidays, then Jan. 4 could be one option. The other most likely slot would be either Feb. 8 or May 3 given other competitions and the late March FIFA break. Last season the Premier League played the February midweek, leaving May open for rescheduled matches.
The Sporting News will bring you all the fixtures below as soon as they are released on Thursday, June 16 at 9 a.m. BST (4 a.m. ET).

Crystal Palace in the FA Cup, Carabao Cup

Palace didn’t have the same level of success in the Carabao Cup as they crashed out to Watford in the second round. They’ll kick off their EFL Cup campaign in November.

Crystal Palace projection & odds
Palace fans will be hoping another important transfer window will give Vieira the tools needed to secure a top-half finish but the former France star’s first task is replacing the influential Conor Gallagher, who returned to Chelsea following a successful loan spell.
The Eagles have plenty of young, attacking talent in the squad with Michael Olise and Eberechi Eze on either flank and talisman Wilfried Zaha up front to cause any team problems, but they’ll need to be more clinical in front of goal to turn draws into wins to mount a proper charge for a top-10 finish.

Crystal Palace best & worst Premier League finish
Palace’s highest finish in the Premier League came in the 2014/15 season when they came 10th as they amassed 48 points. They began the season with Neil Warnock at the helm before Alan Pardew took over in January.
The Eagles’ lowest finish saw them end up 20th in the inaugural Premier League season in 1992/1993 as they were relegated, and they were bottom of the table again five years later. Palace are no strangers to relegation having been demoted on four separate occasions from the Premier League.
