• Premier League Injury Table – End of Season Review 2023/24

    Another Premier League Season has come to an end, Manchester City have been crowned champions for an unprecedented 4th time in a row. Among other notable achievements, all three promoted teams failed to survive for the first time since 1998, and Aston Villa rejoined Europe’s elite by qualifying for the UEFA Champions League for the first time since 1983.

    Records were smashed across the board this season, with one of the most notable being a new record for injuries. According to data collected by Premier Injuries, the total number of individual injuries suffered this season is the highest the Premier League has seen in over 20 years! 


    Take a look at how your team ranked in the Premier League Injury Table this season:

    1. Manchester United – 45 Injuries
    2. Chelsea – 43 Injuries 
    3. Newcastle – 41 Injuries 
    4. Brighton – 41 Injuries 
    5. Aston Villa – 39 Injuries 
    6. Tottenham – 37 Injuries 
    7. Crystal Palace 37 Injuries 
    8. Nottingham Forest – 36 Injuries 
    9. Liverpool – 35 Injuries 
    10. Luton – 35 Injuries 
    11. Everton – 33 Injuries 
    12. Sheffield United – 31 Injuries 
    13. Brentford – 29 Injuries 
    14. Manchester City – 26 Injuries
    15. West Ham – 26 Injuries
    16. Wolves – 26 Injuries 
    17. Bournemouth – 25 Injuries 
    18. Burnley – 25 Injuries 
    19. Arsenal – 23 Injuries 
    20. Fulham – 22 Injuries

    It will come as no surprise to Manchester United fans that they topped the injury table for the 2023/2024 season, with a huge 45 separate injuries recorded throughout the season. The 4-0 defeat to Crystal Palace really highlighted their struggles with injuries this season, as well as a poor 8th place finish, which would have cost them a place in Europe next season if it wasn’t for a fantastic FA Cup Final win over rivals Manchester City.

    Fulham had the best injury record this season, with only 22 injuries recorded. Many people predicted the Cottagers to struggle after selling star striker Aleksandr Mitrovic in the summer, but a fantastic injury record helped Fulham seal a comfortable 13th place finish.

    When it came to individual injuries, hamstring injuries were the most common in the Premier League this season. A hamstring injury involves a strain or tear to the tendons and large muscles at the back of the thigh, and can be very painful. Constant stretching, jumping, and quick changes in pace and direction make this an extremely common injury among footballers, at both amateur and professional level, so it is important to know how to treat one in case you end up suffering one yourself. Check out our blog on Common Football Injuries to make sure you are well prepared in case you end up suffering from a hamstring injury, or any other common injury.

    Our Hamstring & Groin compression shorts are also a fantastic option for people suffering from, or recovering from a hamstring strain. Check out our full range of leg and muscle injury supports and clothing on the PhysioRoom website now.

    With the Premier League season over, attention now turns to the Summer, and to EURO 2024. With many international stars already ruled out of the tournament, including Scotland’s Lyndon Dykes (Ankle Injury), Germany’s Serge Gnabry (Hamstring Injury), and Spain’s Gavi (ACL Injury), it remains to be seen how big of an impact injuries have in determining who lifts the trophy in Germany this summer.
