Premier League 2023-24 Season Highlights

The Premier League 2023-24 season was a spectacle that delivered life-changing victories, remarkable comebacks, and unforgettable moments for soccer fans. As the world’s most watched football league, the Premier League competition never ceases to captivate viewers and this season was arguably the greatest one to date. Records were broken on multiple fronts, while several big faces (and a few new names) stood out from the crowd. Let’s look back on highlights from the Premier League 2023-24 season and relive the moments that made this thrilling journey unforgettable!  


Top Contenders

The race to claim the Premier League title for 2023-24 resulted in a lot of speculation from fans on which team would make it to the end. Several teams emerged as frontrunners, including legends like Manchester City, Liverpool, and Chelsea, due to their reputation for dominance in the league. However, this didn’t stop ambitious teams from challenging the order in their fight for the winning title, rewriting the narrative. Less established teams like Leicester City and Wolverhampton Wanderers put up a strong fight and, against all odds, managed to stay in the competition until the final weeks of the season.


Record-Breaking Victories

Despite pressure from other teams, Manchester City fended off the competition to win their fourth consecutive Premier League title! Defeating West Ham 3-1 has made them the first team in 135 years of English football history to win four straight league crowns. The victory also adds another chapter to a golden era for the club, marking the sixth trophy in seven years and eighth championship across 13 seasons. The powerhouse team now has the opportunity to become the first side in English football history to win back-to-back Premier League and FA Cup Doubles when they face-off with Manchester United in the FA Cup finals.


Legendary Performances

Throughout this season’s Premier League matches there were many players whose talented and skilled performances left fans awestruck. From showstopping goals to perfectly executed assists, our favourite star players continuously proved why they’re considered the best in the world. Hometown hero, Phil Foden, couldn’t stay out of the spotlight even if he wanted to – he acted as the attacking heartbeat for Manchester City in the Premier League, contributing more than just goals to his team’s record-breaking win. Some other legendary players who played spectacularly this season are Erling Haaland, Alexander Isak, Martin Ødegaard, and Virgil van Dijk.


Rising Talents

This season of the Premier League also saw the rise of promising young talent who made their mark on the league and showed fans a glimpse into the future of their teams. Despite all of the powerhouse players competing on the field, rising stars like Chelsea’s Cole Palmer still found their place in the spotlight this season. Palmer demonstrated his remarkable skills, playing at an electric pace with expert finishing earning him the league’s Young Player of the Season award. He won the honor over a star-studded line-up that included Bukayo Saka, Willian Saliba, Kobbie Mainoo, and Destiny Udogie.


Top Goalkeepers

One of the most exciting aspects of the Premier League competition for fans is to see which player takes home the Golden Glove! The Golden Glove award is presented to the goalkeeper who kept the most clean sheets in a single Premier League season. A ‘clean sheet’ refers to a full game in which a team doesn’t score a goal. The 2023-24 Premier League Golden Glove award was awarded to Arsenal goalkeeper, David Raya. The 28-year-old player has secured the honor during his debut season with the Arsenal team, having kept 15 clean sheets with two matches to play.


VAR Controversies

As with any modern soccer season, VAR (Video Assistant Referee) controversies were a hot topic of debate among fans, players, and teams throughout the Premier League. Through a season-long series of penalty-related errors, video-assisted refereeing became the most argued-over theme, sparking even more drama for fans. Despite video technology being put in place to remove human errors and make refereeing more accurate and unbiased than ever before, there continues to be speculation surrounding errors made by the system. We’re eager to see what’s in store for the future of VAR in the league now that Liverpool has spoken out against it.  


Overall, the Premier League 2023-24 Season was a rollercoaster of emotions, with countless unforgettable moments that are sure to go down in history. From the excitement of the title race to the drama of the video assistant referee battle, this season never failed to entertain fans. The life-changing victories and remarkable comebacks throughout this season’s journey have reinforced the league’s status as a global phenomenon. We can’t wait to see what’s in store for the 2024-25 season!
