The previous post looked at Man City's group of death fixtures. So let's focus now on the EPL schedule after a CL fixture. Join me after the jump.

EPL fixtures after CL games

Real Madrid v Man City Tuesday 18th September

Premier League

Man CityvArsenal

Sun 23 Sep 16:00

A home tie against Arsenal with 5 days rest is something that shouldn't cause us too much worry. still it's a game against a top 6 squad.

Man City v Borussia Dortmund Wednesday 3rd October

Premier League

Man CityvSunderland

Sat 6 Oct 12:45

Another home game. A lunch time kick-off with only 65 hours between games. No travel involved.

Ajax v Man City Wednesday 24th October

Premier League

Man CityvSwansea

Sat 27 Oct 17:30

Again, another home fixture. this time against Swansea with just short of 72 hours between games. A short flight home post Ajax game. Expect some rotation in the Swansea fixture.

Man City v Ajax Tuesday 6th November

Premier League

Man CityvTottenham

Sun 11 Nov 13:30

See the pattern? Lot's of home EPL fixtures following a CL fixture which is in total contrast to last years 6 away EPL fixtures following a CL game.

Man City v Real Madrid Wednesday 21st November

Premier League

ChelseavMan City

Sun 25 Nov 16:00

The only away EPL fixture following a CL game is a tough one. Chelsea away will be a huge EPL game and the extra days rest may be needed. Chelsea have Juventus away on Tuesday.

Borussia Dortmund v Man City Tuesday 4th of December

Premier League

Man CityvMan Utd

Sat 8 Dec 15:00

So the last EPL fixture after a CL group game is the Manchester derby. Man United play FC Cluj on the Wednesday. So Man City gain an extra days rest but have the flight time to deal with.

We must say that a 3pm kick off on a Saturday for a Derby fixture looks a little off. Expect this game to be moved to a peak time on Sunday.
