Champions Manchester City will kick off the Premier League season on Friday, 11 August at promoted Burnley – managed by their former captain Vincent Kompany.

Luton Town’s first top-flight match since 1992 is at Brighton a day later, when fellow promoted club Sheffield United host Crystal Palace.

Mauricio Pochettino’s reign as Chelsea manager begins at home to Liverpool on Sunday, 13 August.

New Tottenham boss Ange Postecoglou takes his side to Brentford that day.

Manchester United start the season against Wolves at Old Trafford on Monday, 14 August.

Manchester City, who are celebrating a Treble after winning the Premier League, Champions League and FA Cup in 2022-23, are now looking to become the first English team to win four successive titles.

Pep Guardiola’s side have won the Premier League in five of the past six seasons.

Burnley manager Kompany spent 11 years at City, winning four league titles.

The 2023-24 Premier League season concludes on Sunday, 19 May 2024.

Liverpool’s opener at Chelsea follows a request to the Premier League to start the season away from home, because of ongoing works to expand the Anfield Road Stand.

The season schedule returns to normal, having been affected first by the Covid-19 pandemic and its knock-on impact, and then by last year’s World Cup break.

And the mid-season break returns, with teams given a clear weekend in January.
