Recent Manchester City fixtures in the 2021-22 campaign
In recent games, Manchester City has been playing with a Champions spirit, recording 10 consecutive wins in the last 10 Premier League games of the year. This included some of their best performances against Leeds United and Leicester City, scoring an amazing 13 goals in just these two games. Moreover, they even recorded impressive wins against city neighbours Manchester United and Everton.
In December, they had a perfect record, scoring 25 goals and conceding just 5 goals. They have set themselves up well to lift the title yet again. However, as manager Pep Guardiola remarked after the Leicester game, “We won 10 games in a row, so when you get 30 from 30, you are in a good position. But there are 54 points still to play [for].”

Manchester City’s campaign has so far been highly successful as they are on top of the table. However, it doesn’t take long for tables to turn. With uncertain playing circumstances during the ongoing pandemic, Manchester City players need to be in their best form to continue till the end of the campaign. Here are some of the most important upcoming Manchester City fixtures in the remainder of the Premier League 2021/22 season.
Manchester City v/s Tottenham Hotspur
Tottenham have been a rejuvenated side since their manager Antonio Conte arrived at the club. They have picked up form and are climbing up the table with star player Harry Kane in rich goal-scoring form.
Manchester City’s previous meeting with Tottenham was on the opening day. It was in a narrow 1-0 defeat, when Spurs won by a solitary goal from Son Heung-min. However, a lot has changed since then, with City quickly picking up stride. They have been producing flawless performances against other Premier League oppositions.
Tottenham Hotspur has been a tough opposition and has won 3 of their last 5 Premier League meetings against Manchester City. However, City will be looking forward to changing the course of their recent fixtures against Tottenham. Club captain Kevin De Bruyne has been in a rich vein of form. He will be looking to make a mark in this fixture.
Players to watch out for in this fixture:
Manchester City – Kevin De Bruyne
Tottenham Hotspur – Son Heung-min
Fixture date – February 19th, 2022
Manchester City v/s Manchester United
Manchester City’s neighbours, Manchester United, have been enduring a tough campaign with narrow defeats against mid-table sides. However, they have been a very difficult side to face in recent times. Manchester United have recorded three victories in the last five Premier League clashes against City.
The match on March 5th could again prove to be tricky. Their new coach, Ralf Ragnick, is looking to bring glory days to United. Moreover, their star player Cristiano Ronaldo is on the cusp of getting back to his best form. He could be decisive in the outcome of the match.
However, City will be looking to produce a similar outcome as their recent match in November. They completely controlled the game from the first minute. Club stalwart, Bernardo Silva, was in scintillating form. He was on hand while converting from close range for the second goal and helping City stamp their authority. Overall, this is poised to be an exciting fixture. City will be looking to beat their neighbours to record a league double over them.
Players to watch out for in the fixture:
Manchester City – Bernardo Silva
Manchester United – Cristiano Ronaldo
Fixture date – March 5th, 2022
Manchester City v/s Liverpool
This could well be considered the most important fixture in Manchester City’s Premier League campaign. In recent years, Liverpool has been City’s most competitive rivals, finishing just 1 point behind City in the 2018/19 campaign. They further won the title in the 2019/20 campaign.
The previous meeting was a stalemate with City and Liverpool settling for a 2-2 draw. Their star forward, Mohammed Salah, was in scintillating form, perhaps scoring one of the ‘Goals of the Season’ with an exquisite finish. He has often proved to be Liverpool’s main man. He could well prove to be a decisive player in this upcoming fixture.
As for City, the talented midfielder Phil Foden has been in red-hot form. He has been in good form, scoring in three of the last four Premier League encounters against the Reds. His sublime dribbling and ability to make darting runs past the defence makes him a key player for Manchester City in this high stakes fixture. Overall, this fixture is sure to provide a lot of talking points and could determine the outcome of the season.
Players to watch out for in the fixture:
Manchester City – Phil Foden
Liverpool – Mohammed Salah
Fixture date – April 9th, 2022
