We’re already into the second matchday of the 2023/24 English Premier League season and we’ll see if Newcastle United can maintain their place atop the table when they face three-time defending champions Manchester City, who also won their first match, but by one less goal than the Magpies.
Almost every team that was on the road to open the campaign will host in Week 2, and Tottenham will welcome Manchester United in another marquee matchup (Saturday, Aug. 19).
There will also be a trio of London derbies that should help truly set the season aflame: West Ham vs. Chelsea, Crystal Palace vs. Arsenal, and Fulham vs. Brentford.
The only two teams that won’t be in action are Luton Town and Burnley, since Luton’s Kenilworth Lane stadium is still undergoing a facelift to be ready for the Premier League.
The Sporting News will update the table below and break down each of the key races throughout the 2023/24 season.
English Premier League table 2023/24
Updated as of Saturday August 19, 2023.
Premier League title 2023/24
Manchester City are the heavy favourites to repeat as Premier League champions for the fourth straight season, and the most serious challenge could once again come from Arsenal, according to most sportsbooks.
Liverpool, Manchester United, Chelsea, and Newcastle United are deemed the most likely to press that duo, with Chelsea the only one in the group that does not have to worry about European cup competitions after failing to qualify last season.

Champions League spots, European places 2023/24
The big news in 2023/24 is that there’s a scenario in which the Premier League could see the top five teams all qualify for the UEFA Champions League if England finishes as one of the top two performing nations in European club cup competitions.
If the FA Cup winner or Carabao Cup winner finish in the top four, the European cup berth that accompanies that title would go to the next team in the Premier League standings not already qualified for Europe.
Premier League European places in 2023/24:
- Champions League berths (4 or 5): Top 4 or Top 5 places
- Europa League berths (2): 5th or 6th place + FA Cup winner
- Conference League qualifying berth (1): Carabao Cup winner
Premier League relegation 2023/24
According to the sportsbooks, there are eight teams that stand out as candidates to finish in the bottom three places and suffer relegation down to the English second-tier Championship.
Luton Town, who were the last team to win promotion to the Premier League via last season’s Championship playoff final, are the team deemed most likely to finish in the bottom three.
Fellow promoted side Sheffield United are not too far behind, while the third promoted club, Burnley, are tipped to survive based on their longer preseason odds.
Meanwhile, supporters of Everton, Wolves, Bournemouth, and Nottingham Forest project to be in for another nail-biting season.

The bottom three teams on May 19, 2024 will be relegated to the second-tier Championship.
