Premier League 2023/24: Our writers' review of the season

With another captivating Premier League season over, we look at the records set across the competition in 2023/24.

Goals records

There were 1,246 Premier League goals this season, more than ever before. That total beat the previous record of 1,222 goals, set in 1992/93 when there were 22 clubs instead of the current 20, and 462 matches instead of the 380 fixtures that we have now.

Substitutes scored 159 goals this season, surpassing the previous record of 132 that was set in the last campaign. 

The three hat-tricks scored on 2 September by Son Heung-min, Erling Haaland and Evan Ferguson were the joint-most ever on a single day in the Premier League, after 23 September 1995 when Alan Shearer, Robbie Fowler and Tony Yeboah each struck trebles.

Oli McBurnie’s equalising penalty for Sheffield United against West Ham United in January was timed at 102:08, the latest Premier League goal on record since 2006/07. It eclipsed Dirk Kuyt’s 102nd-minute penalty for Liverpool against Arsenal in April 2011.

In April, Manchester United were leading Chelsea 3-2 at 99:18 but went on to lose 4-3. It is the latest a team have been winning before losing in Premier League history. Cole Palmer’s winner at 100:41 is also the latest winning goal in a Premier League match since records began in 2006/07.

Clubs' records

Manchester City became the first team to win the Premier League title for a fourth consecutive season.

The champions were unbeaten at home across the season, equalling the record, although this has happened 18 times before in a Premier League campaign.

Tottenham Hotspur didn't have a single draw at home, the fifth time this has happened.

Nottingham Forest stayed up with 32 points, the lowest ever total recorded by a team that has secured safety. That came after they were deducted four points. Only 27 points were needed to stay up, which is also a new low, as 18th-placed Luton Town went down with 26 points. 

Man City have won all 14 of their Premier League meetings with AFC Bournemouth, setting a record for the longest winning run for a side against a specific opponent. 

In Newcastle United’s 8-0 win at Sheff Utd in September, the Magpies became the first side to have eight different goalscorers in a Premier League match, excluding own goals.

Newcastle went on to beat Sheff Utd 5-1 in the reverse fixture. Their total of 13 goals against the Blades is the most that one team have scored against another in a Premier League campaign.

In Liverpool’s 4-2 home win over Newcastle in January, the Reds amassed an Expected Goals figure of 7.11, the highest xG total on record since 2010/11 in a Premier League match.

Between their 3-1 win over Liverpool in February and their 6-0 victory at Sheff Utd at the start of March, Arsenal scored two or more goals in eight consecutive halves of Premier League football, a record in the competition.

Chelsea players received 105 bookings this season, the most ever for a team across a Premier League campaign. 

Sheff Utd conceded 104 goals, the most ever in a Premier League season. They also set unwanted records by conceding 57 home goals and only managing one clean sheet across the campaign. Meanwhile, their goal difference of -69 was the joint-worst in the competition's history, equalling Derby County's from the 2007/08 season. 

Managers' records

Ange Postecoglou won 26 points from his first 30 available, with eight wins and two draws. It’s the most Premier League points secured by a manager in their first 10 matches in the competition. 

In August’s 2-1 victory at Sheff Utd, Pep Guardiola earned his 200th win in his 269th Premier League match – the quickest any manager has reached 200 wins in English top-flight history.

With Liverpool doing the double over Newcastle this season, Jurgen Klopp secured his 11th and 12th consecutive Premier League wins against Eddie Howe – the longest winning run in the competition by one manager against another. 

Players' records

James Milner appeared in his 22nd Premier League season, equalling the record held by Ryan Giggs. Milner is 19 matches away from equalling Gareth Barry's record of 653 appearances in the competition.

Mohamed Salah became the first Premier League player to score 10 or more goals and provide 10 or more assists in three consecutive seasons.

Jarrod Bowen became the first Premier League player to score in each of his side's first six away matches in a season.

Erling Haaland’s opening goal against Liverpool in November was his 50th in the Premier League. He reached that milestone in just 48 appearances, the fewest ever, beating Andrew Cole’s record of 65 matches.

Jeremy Doku scored one goal and produced four assists in Man City’s 6-1 win against AFC Bournemouth, aged 21 years and 161 days. He equalled the Premier League record for the most assists in a match, and became the youngest player to assist four goals in a game.

Against Chelsea in January, Liverpool’s Darwin Nunez became the first player on record since 2003/04 to hit the woodwork four times in a Premier League match. Across the season he hit the woodwork nine times, one away from equalling Robin van Persie's record from 2011/12.

Aged 21 years and 14 days against Luton, Manchester United’s Rasmus Hojlund became the youngest player ever to score in six successive Premier League appearances, surpassing Joe Willock's record of 21 years 272 days.

Palmer scored the earliest ever "perfect hat-trick" in Chelsea's 6-0 home win over Everton, scoring with his left foot, right foot and head inside the opening 29 minutes. It broke a record that had stood for over 29 years, since 1995. 

Against Liverpool in May, Aston Villa’s Emiliano Martinez scored his third Premier League own goal, the most ever by a goalkeeper in the competition.
