The 2023/24 Premier League season is under way and you can follow every game and every goal right here with The Independent.

This year sees Manchester City try to defend their crown and claim a historic fourth title in succession. Pep Guardiola’s all-conquering City, who also won the Champions League and FA Cup last season, will have to see off Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester United, Liverpool and the rest to claim an unprecedented sixth league title in seven years.

Meanwhile Luton Town are making their first appearance in the Premier League, having risen from non-league in an incredible decade of progress. They followed Championship winners Burnley and second-placed Sheffield United in earning promotion to the top flight.

Follow the latest action from the Premier League below.

Aston Villa vs Wolverhampton Wanderers

Diaby registered a goal and an assist to help Villa beat Wolves 2-0 at Villa Park. The win for the Lions means they are back into the top four on goal difference, leapfrogging Tottenham. However, it was far from routine for the hosts, who only created an xG of 0.84 compared to Wolves' 1.35. The Old Gold had plenty of chances to score, with Ait-Nouri hitting his effort straight at Martinez when the score was goalless. Villa started slowly but netted the opener through Diaby, who fired his first-time, left-footed strike from the edge past Sa. He then assisted Konsa after the break, with the defender looping a cross over the goalkeeper and into the net. His effort was worth an xG of just 0.033, but he looked delighted to score his first goal since 2021. The only worry for Villa will be the possible injury to Watkins, who went off at half-time. Emery's men travel to Manchester City for their next match, with injury-hit Wolves going to Burnley. That's all for today, goodbye.

CLOSE! Doherty collects the ball on the right and rolls a pass down the right to Fraser. The young forward goes for the near post with his strike and crashes the side of the net. He almost surprised Martinez, who captains Villa today and will keep a clean sheet.

A day to remember for Kesler-Hayden, who makes his Premier League debut in the final few minutes. Bailey helped create Villa's first goal and is given a rest.

There is a sign of frustration from Fraser, who hacks through Konsa trying to win possession inside Villa's box. The visitors should have more to show for their efforts in the first half but haven’t done anywhere near enough since the restart.

Luiz has a free-kick just to the right in a shooting position but decides to lift a cross into the box. Wolves head it clear as far as Zaniolo, who has his shot blocked by an incoming defender.
