Firing Up the Pitch: 2023-2024 English Premier League (EPL) Boasted 1,246 Goals (3.28 per match) in 380 Matches!

The 2023–24 Premier League marked the 32nd season of the league and the 125th season of top-flight English football. Commencing on August 11, 2023, it concluded on May 19, 2024. Manchester City, defending champions, clinched their fourth consecutive title, becoming the first men’s team in English league history to achieve this feat.

This season introduced the third winter break, with all teams enjoying a two-week hiatus from competitions between January 2 and January 30, 2024. The summer transfer window spanned from June 14 to September 1, 2023, while the winter transfer window operated from January 1 to February 1, 2024.

An all-time record of 1,246 goals, averaging 3.28 per match, were scored, surpassing the previous record of 1,222 set in the 1992–93 season. Notably, this average was the highest in top-flight football since 1964–65. Additionally, for the first time since 1997–98, all three newly promoted teams—Luton Town, Burnley, and Sheffield United—were relegated, accumulating a combined total of 66 points. Conversely, Nottingham Forest broke the record for survival with the lowest points total (32), surpassing the previous record of 34 set by West Bromwich Albion in 2004–05.

Key Highlights:

  • Everton faced a points deduction of 10 for breaching the Premier League’s profit and sustainability rules (PSR), marking the largest deduction in Premier League history. The deduction was later reduced to six points following an appeal.
  • Tottenham Hotspur’s match against Liverpool saw a glaring error by the video assistant referee (VAR), resulting in a disallowed goal for Liverpool due to offside.
  • Sheffield United sacked their manager, Paul Heckingbottom, after a 5–0 defeat to Burnley. Chris Wilder replaced him.
  • The match between Bournemouth and Luton Town was abandoned due to Luton captain Tom Lockyer‘s cardiac arrest. Bournemouth staged a remarkable comeback in the replayed match, winning 4–3.
  • Nottingham Forest sacked their manager, Steve Cooper, appointing Nuno Espírito Santo as his replacement.
  • Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp announced his departure at the end of the season.
  • Crystal Palace manager Roy Hodgson resigned due to health reasons, replaced by Oliver Glasner.
  • Sheffield United and Nottingham Forest faced points deductions for PSR breaches.
  • Sheffield United became the first team relegated, followed by Burnley and Luton Town.
  • Brighton & Hove Albion terminated Roberto De Zerbi‘s contract.
  • Aston Villa secured a Champions League spot under Unai Emery, while Manchester United faced one of their worst seasons.
  • The introduction of a new stoppage time rule aimed to combat time-wasting and increase match drama, resulting in longer stoppage times and more yellow and red cards.

Twenty teams competed in the league, including three promoted teams: Burnley, Sheffield United, and Luton Town. These teams replaced relegated Leicester City, Leeds United, and Southampton. Notably, Luton Town’s promotion marked their first appearance in the Premier League, making them the first team promoted from non-League to the top flight during the Premier League era.
