Newly-promoted Burnley will host defending champions Manchester City in the opening game of the 2023-24 Premier League season at Turf Moor on Friday evening. The Clarets will be looking to make a statement in their first season back in the top flight, while City will be determined to start their title defence with a win.

City lost the Community Shield against Arsenal after Kevin De Bruyne and Rodri failed to convert their penalties in the shoot-out. Aside from that, they have enjoyed a strong pre-season and will be raring to go.

Burnley were dominant in the Championship last season, having topped the table with a lead of 10 points. They have only lost one game during pre-season and will be looking forward to an exciting domestic season.

Here GOAL brings you everything you need to know about how to watch, including TV channel, streaming details and more.
