2023 Premier League Soccer: Preview + How to Watch with DISH

Premier League Football

The 2023/24 Premier League soccer season is set to be as competitive as any season in recent memory. Last season, Manchester City caught Arsenal and won their fifth Premier League title in the last six years. City are once again the favorite this season but the other ‘top 6’ clubs – Arsenal, Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester United, and Tottenham – have all made moves to improve and finally challenge the crown dominated by Pep Guardiola and the Cityzens. The promoted sides Burnley, Sheffield United, and Luton Town will try to make an impression while ‘mid-table’ sides will look to compete.

Every weekend, Premier League games will air live on the NBC-Universal family of networks (NBC, USA, CNBC, Universo), with most games airing live on NBC, USA, and Peacock. Although Peacock requires a separate subscription, Peacock subscribers can access the app directly from their internet-connected Hopper devices, no need to switch inputs.

Here’s a look at all 20 teams competing in the Premier League this season.


Team-by-Team Premier League Preview


  • After leading the title race for majority of the season, the Gunners ran out of fuel in the home stretch. However, following a strong summer transfer window signing Kai Havertz, Declan Rice and Jurrien Timber, Arsenal will look to finish the job this season while contending in the Champions League.

Aston Villa: 

  • The Villans got things going under new manager Unai Emery last season, finishing 7th. Can they make the jump into the top 6 this year after very strong signings Pau Torres, Youri Tielemans and the electric Moussa Diaby?


  • The Bees enter their third season in the Premier League under tactical genius Thomas Frank. Brentford was a tough opponent for top teams last season, and will need to withstand Ivan Toney’s 4-month ban if they want to improve on their 9th place finish last season.

Brighton and Hove Albion: 

  • Another smaller club that punch above their weight, manager Roberto De Zerbi’s side will have to adjust to losing World Cup winner Alexis Mac Allister to Liverpool. The talented Moises Caicedo could also be on his way out, but some savvy signings will likely keep the Seagulls competitive.


  • After an atrocious start to the season, the Cherries got things going under Gary O’Neil, who saved them from relegation. O’Neil was surprisingly let go and new manager Andoni Iraola will look to implement his attacking philosophy with talented players like Justin Kluivert.


  • Winners of the Championship last season by a record margin, newly promoted Burnley under Vincent Kompany will not look like the Burnley you remember. The Clarets will not be an easy three points this season.



  • Since July 2022, Chelsea have spent over $900m in the transfer market. The results? Four different managers, and a 12th place finish in the Premier League last season. New manager Mauricio Pocchetino needs to unlock the plethora of talent at Stamford Bridge, especially $100+ million man, Mykhailo Mudryk.

Crystal Palace: 

  • Keeping old stalwart Roy Hodgson on the sidelines is an interesting decision for Crystal Palace. The club will rely heavily on the talented Michael Olise,  Marc Guéhi and Eberechi Eze this season with club legend Wilfried Zaha leaving for Turkey.


  • Having narrowly avoided relegation for the second straight season, Sean Dyche’s team will likely be in another fight this season. But with new striker Youssef Cheriti hoping to spell the unfortunately always injured Domonic Calvert-Lewin, perhaps the Toffees can stay afloat.


  • After finishing 10th last season, Fulham exceeded everyone’s expectations under Marco Silva. But with their best player and goal scorer Aleksander Mitrovic rearing to leave the club, Silva will have his work cut out for him this season.


  • After a tough season last year that saw plenty of injuries and inconsistency, Jurgen Klopp will have a revamped midfield after signing the talented Alexis Mac Allister and Dominik Szoboszlai. A healthy back line plus Luis Diaz and Diogo Jota in the attack should help Mohamed Salah and the Reds get back into the top 4.

Luton Town: 


Manchester City: 

  • The Champions of Europe, England and the FA Cup return for another season with high expectations. The Cityzens will have to replace two key players after Riyad Mahrez and İlkay Gündoğan left the club. But when you have Erling Haaland and Kevin De Buryne backed up with plenty of depth, the odds remain in your favor.

Manchester United: 

  • Last season was an acceptable debut for Erik ten Hag at Manchester United. The Red Devils won the Carabao Cup and finished 3rd, securing Champions League soccer. The key this season will be scoring. $75m man Rasmus Hojlund along with Marcus Rashford will be asked to fix Man U’s scoring problem, as the team finished last amongst the top six in goals scored last year.

Newcastle United: 

  • After soaring to a 4th place season and earning their spot in the Champions League for the first time in 20 years, participating in Europe’s greatest club competition will challenge Eddie Howe and the depth of the Magpies. Should they continue to keep St. James Park a fortress (where only Liverpool and Arsenal had victories), they’ll be challenging the top four.

Nottingham Forest: 

  • After signing THIRTY new players last season, Forest completed the job and stayed in the top flight. The entertaining Steve Cooper will lean heavily on the talented Morgan Gibbs-White and Brazilian midfield Danilo, as well as continuing their good record at the City Ground.

Sheffield United: 

  • The last of the newly promoted teams, Sheffield United are set to lose some important player who got them back to the Premier League. They’ll need to find a goalscorer as their transfer business this summer has been dry.

Tottenham Hotspur: 

  • Under new manager Ange Postecoglou, finishing in the top four will remain the goal for Spurs. Though Harry Kane’s future has dominated the conversation around the club, not having to focus on mid-week European soccer this season could be a good thing. This team has not had a consistent identity for years, and Postecoglou will be tasked with giving them one.

West Ham United: 

  • After winning the Europa Conference League last season, West Ham will contend with Europa League football this season despite their 14th place finish. Integration and smart recruitment will be key after selling club captain Declan Rice to Arsenal for 100 million pounds.

Wolverhampton Wanderers 

  • Wolves got enough results last season to stay in the top flight after a horrible start. Manager Julien Lopetegui has a great track record and some decent players to work with, but the lack of signings or goal threats is concerning.
