The Premier League has well and truly returned. August treated us to 29 games of the world’s superior football league and September is expected to follow that up with more high-tempo, end-to-end action.
We take a look at the standout Premier League fixtures coming your way during the coming month, and how tickets can be acquired for these highly-anticipated clashes.
Arsenal vs Manchester United – 3rd September
September begins with a grudge match between two of England’s most historic and successful football clubs. The Gunners and the Red Devils come together at the Emirates Stadium, and millions around the world are expected to tune into this massive encounter.
Arsenal enter September as one of six Premier League teams yet to taste defeat this campaign. Mikel Arteta’s side came into the season expecting to firmly challenge for the league title. The Gunners got off to a decent start with back-to-back wins over Nottingham Forest and Crystal Palace, but dropped 2 points at home to Fulham.
Manchester United picked up two narrow wins, over Wolves and Nottingham Forest, on either side of a 2-0 defeat to Tottenham. Erik ten Hag’s charges sit 1 point adrift of Arsenal, but they have looked far from optimal this term.
Under Arteta, The Emirates has once again become a tough place to travel. In 2022/23, Arsenal earned 45 points from a possible 57, dropping points only five times in 19 home games.
Due to the calibre of this fixture, Arsenal vs Manchester United tickets will not come cheaply. Of course, being an official member of either club will stand you in good stead for securing a seat for this game.
However, Arsenal have more than 200,000 members and Man United have an estimated 50,000 season ticket holders. This means the vast majority will be left disappointed at missing out on tickets for this game.
Fortunately, SeatPick compares ticket prices on the secondary market. For those without club membership, this is by far the best way to get a hold of tickets.
Liverpool vs Aston Villa – 3rd September
Unai Emery is still less than a year into the job at the West Midlands club, but the recent pre-season was the perfect opportunity for the Spaniard to further implement his philosophy onto his players and staff alike.
Villa strengthened significantly in the summer market, primarily made possible by the arrival of Monchi as the club’s new President of Football Operations.
Since Emery’s first league outing as Villa boss in November 2022, his team has picked up 52 points from 28 matches – averaging 1,85 points per game which would equate to 70 points over a 38-game season.
Liverpool and Aston Villa have shared a pitch more than 200 times, with the former victorious more often than not. Following the inception of the Premier League in 1992, Villa emerged victorious in this fixture in each of the first three seasons of the reformatted competition.
Since the turn of the century, however, the Villa Park club has gotten the better of Liverpool just twice in this league fixture – in 2011 and 2020.
Liverpool vs Aston Villa tickets start from £143 at SeatPick. Check out availability today and find the best seats for this thrilling encounter.
Manchester United vs Brighton & Hove Albion – 16th September
This match-up will be a significant test for Ten Hag, 15 months into the job as Man United manager. The Seagulls served as the opposition in the Red Devils’ season-opener in 2022/23, handing defeat to Ten Hag in what was his first competitive bout in the Old Trafford hotseat.
After the international break, this fixture will be a gauge for how much progress Ten Hag has made since taking over a dysfunctional United side. However, Brighton have since made a managerial change themselves, and a transformative one at that.
Between the appointment of Roberto De Zerbi in September 2022 and the end of last season, only Manchester City and Arsenal scored more goals in the Premier League than Brighton.
As of the end of August 2023, no Premier League team has scored more goals than the Seagulls in the current season (9). De Zerbi’s side put four past both Luton Town and Wolves, before an uncharacteristic defeat to West Ham United.
This is certain to be an entertaining battle, so visit SeatPick to buy Manchester United vs Brighton tickets today. Tickets are available from as little as £65.

Arsenal vs Tottenham Hotspur – 24th September
September 2023 will be a significant and possibly defining month for Arsenal. Not only do the Gunners host Man United, they also get their UEFA Champions League campaign underway before welcoming their bitter rivals to The Emirates.
The North London derby is one of the most rivalrous fixtures in English football and there is absolutely no love lost between the two teams.
In recent years, Arsenal have generally got the better of their local foes in this fixture. The last time Tottenham won a league outing at The Emirates was in 2010. Before that, you’d have to go back to the inaugural Premier League campaign in 1992/93 for a Spurs victory at Highbury.
Particularly in this game, the home crowd typically plays its part in riling up the opposition. Many times the NLD has produced heated battles and, ultimately, red cards. Since 2018, Erik Lamela, Jan Vertonghen and Emerson Royal have all been sent off for the visitors in this fixture.
Being such an important occasion, it is unsurprising that Arsenal vs Tottenham tickets are not easy to come by. SeatPick compares prices from an array of ticket resellers online, providing the best opportunity for those adamant to attend this game.
Tottenham Hotspur vs Liverpool – 30th September
September ends with a crunch clash featuring a resurgent Tottenham. Despite losing Harry Kane, the club’s all-time leading goalscorer, Ange Postecoglou has got off to a sublime start in north London.
Spurs closed out August with a routine 2-0 victory at Bournemouth, entering September 2 points off league-leaders Manchester City. Only the reigning champions have conceded fewer goals than Spurs (2), following back-to-back clean sheets for the Lilywhites.
Their visitors in this meeting, Liverpool, scored an impressive comeback win over Newcastle. Jürgen Klopp remains at loose ends following the midfield exodus from Anfield over the summer, but his team took two wins and a draw from their opening three league games.
Liverpool won this fixture in 2022/23, thanks to two goals by Mohamed Salah. However, Spurs now appear a different animal under Postecoglou, and this should prove an enticing affair at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
