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.


Burnley vs Arsenal

Yet another brilliant Arsenal display sees them run out dominant winners at Turf Moor as they hammer hapless Burnley 5-0. The visitors were ahead after just four minutes as Odegaard rifled home from Martinelli's cutback, and it was 2-0 with four minutes to go until the break, Assignon bringing down Trossard before Saka squeezed the resulting penalty past Trafford and in. Any hopes of a Burnley comeback were just moments after the break as Saka thumped home, before Trossard netted to make it 4-0. Havertz rounded the scoring with 78 minutes on the clock with a brilliant solo effort, weaving into the box before coolly finishing. A sixth straight win for Arsenal means they go two points off leaders Liverpool, while their +11 goal difference over the last two games means that Manchester City would have to beat Chelsea by five goals later on Saturday to leapfrog the Gunners into second. For Burnley, they remain seven points off safety, and relegation looks an increasingly looming prospect. They have a crucial game away at fellow strugglers Crystal Palace next Saturday, while Arsenal play Wednesday away at Porto in a Champions League round-of-16 first leg. That is all we have for you from Turf Moor, so thanks for your company and goodbye!

Burnley vs Arsenal

Brownhill arrows a powerful effort just wide of the right post after the ball sat up nicely for him to hit. That is about as close as the Clarets have come in this game, with the home side yet to have a shot on target.

Odegaard goes for goal from a free-kick, but Trafford shuffles to his left before beating the effort away from danger. It just didn't have the necessary power to really trouble the Burnley goalkeeper.

Burnley vs Arsenal

Burnley fans are streaming for the exits now with their side well beaten. It's been a really poor display, and while they were playing top-tier opposition, on this evidence staying up could be an almighty struggle.

Bruun Larsen tries to get his name on the scoresheet late on, but his effort is always curling away and flies a couple of yards wide of the left post.

Burnley vs Arsenal

There will be 10 minutes of additional time at the end of this game because of the long delay for Ramsey's serious-looking injury.

Burnley vs Arsenal

Fofana looks to get a consolation for his team with a shot from a difficult angle, but his effort comes off Gabriel's studs and goes into the side-netting. The subsequent corner comes to nothing as we still await Burnley's first shot on target.

Burnley vs Arsenal

They may be five goals to the good, but the visitors are still looking hungry to score even more. They are zipping the ball about the pitch looking for an opening that could improve their goal difference even further after last week's hammering of West Ham.

Burnley vs Arsenal

This has been a really impressive second half from Arsenal, who have put Burnley to the sword against admittedly limited opposition.
