The 2023/24 Premier League season is under way and you can follow every game and every goal right here with The Independent.

This year sees Manchester City try to defend their crown and claim a historic fourth title in succession. Pep Guardiola’s all-conquering City, who also won the Champions League and FA Cup last season, will have to see off Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester United, Liverpool and the rest to claim an unprecedented sixth league title in seven years.

Meanwhile Luton Town are making their first appearance in the Premier League, having risen from non-league in an incredible decade of progress. They followed Championship winners Burnley and second-placed Sheffield United in earning promotion to the top flight.

Follow the latest action from the Premier League below.

West Ham are looking to complete their first league double over Luton since 1983-84 following their 2-1 win at Kenilworth Road earlier this season. The home side will need to perform far better in the second-half if they are to achieve that feat.

The half-time whistle is greeted by boos from the West Ham fans, with their side trailing to Lokonga's early header in Moyes's final home game in charge of the Irons. The hosts have largely huffed and puffed in response but the Hatters lead, and deservedly so. Rob Edwards' outfit have defended resolutely throughout the opening 45 minutes but how will Barkley's injury and substitution affect them in the second half? It's a massive 45 minutes upcoming in the relegation battle.

Antonio tries his luck from distance but his effort flies high over the bar. West Ham will need to do a lot better if they are to trouble this Luton defence.

Coufal whips yet another brilliant delivery into the box and there is chaos but Luton survive once again!

The fourth official says we will play an extra FIVE MINUTES at the end of the first half.

This is a massive few minutes before half-time for Luton, they need to go in ahead at the break...

Antonio & Mengi with an off-the ball scuffle and the referee gives them both a talking to.

Barkley has gone off injured with a calf problem. Is his season over?

Prior to that Barkley injury, Soucek tried his luck from 25 yards but his effort was straight at Kaminski.

Ross Barkley is down and this seems to be a big blow for the visitors.

For all you Luton fans out there, fellow strugglers Burnley are currently drawing 1-1 at Spurs...

The home crowd need something to liven them up as Luton seem comfortable right now.

Luton are having a bit more of the ball here after a good 15-minute spell from the home side.

Coufal delivers an inch perfect cross into the Luton box but the visitors defend it well once again.

SHOT! Kudus does well to work himself some space on the right hand side, only to then blaze his effort over the bar.

This match has been played at 100mph since kick-off, with neither side holding back! More of the same please...

Luton are defending well with West Ham controlling most of the game at the moment. The Hatters are putting their bodies on the line.

CLOSE! West Ham have been really sluggish so far, but they are getting themselves into the game as Emerson bursts clear down the left, but his low ball across the six-yard box somehow evades his team-mates in the middle!

Luton Town had 68.2% possession over the opening 15 minutes of this game. David Moyes is not having the warmest of goodbyes so far.

The two wide men Alfie Doughty and Fred Onyedinma have been the main threat for Luton.

DANGER! Luton are forced into a desperate far-post clearance as Bowen drove into the box dangerously.

The West Ham striker is trying to run the injury off and seems to be okay as of now.

Danny Ings is stripped and ready. There seems to be an injury for Antonio.

It's easily gathered by Areola and West Ham survive.

Another corner here for the visitors...

As it stands, Luton are level on points with 17th-placed Nottingham Forest who host Chelsea in the late kick-off.

West Ham are keeping the ball well but there is always a threat on the counter from the visitors as previously shown through Adebayo's cross.

West Ham have conceded 32 first-half goals in 37 games, only Sheffield United (39) and Burnley (33) have conceded more in the Premier League this season.

Luton have a corner which is safely cleared by the West Ham defence.

The West Ham centre back is okay to carry on. Huge relief for the home side.

Zouma is down with a knock and David Moyes will be hoping the defender can run it off.

INCHES AWAY! Paqueta puts in a delightful cross into the box and Bowen's effort just goes past the post. The Hammers are pushing for an instant reply.

The resulting free-kick from Barkley's foul cannons against the Luton wall and they survive.

Ross Barkley mistimes his challenge, and he is booked for a foul on Antonio. He couldn't argue with that one.

HUGE CHANCE! West Ham have an opportunity to level instantly but Kudus pulls his effort wide when he probably should have tested the Luton Town goalkeeper...

It's a huge goal at the bottom of the table. Lokonga times his run into the area to absolute perfection to fire in a header.

It's been a slow start from both teams as they look to keep the ball and pass it around at the back but the first foray forward comes from the visitors but West Ham clear.

This Luton team always keep you on the edge of your seat. They're committed, with a never say die attitude and they will need more of the same if they are to keep their surival hopes alive.

The sun is out and the atmosphere is rocking at the London Stadium. Will David Moyes get the farewell he deserves or will Luton Town spoil the party?

The bubbles are blowing for David Moyes' final home game. Luton Town get the clash underway at the London Stadium.

In a game which has huge ramifications in the relegation battle, Luton Town boss Rob Edwards keeps the faith with the same side that drew 1-1 with Everton last weekend. However, there is one change among the substitutes, with Chiedozie Ogbene returning on a strong Hatters bench.

David Moyes makes just one change for his final home game in charge of West Ham as James Ward-Prowse returns to the starting line-up. The England international replaces Mexican Edson Alvarez, who drops to the bench.

Luton are winless in their past five away league games against West Ham (D3 L2). The Hatters will be hoping to end that miserable run this afternoon with Premier League survival out of their hands. Both teams have concluded their pre-match warm-ups and kick-off is up next...

Meanwhile, The Hatters are three points from safety heading into their penultimate Premier League game of the season. If Rob Edwards' side fail to beat West Ham, their return to the Championship will be sealed if Nottingham Forest beat Chelsea. A draw against the Hammers and a draw between Forest and Chelsea would mean Luton needing to win and a nine-goal swing on the final day. However, should the visitors beat the Irons and Forest were to lose against Mauricio Pochettino’s outfit, they would be level on points with one game to play.

David Moyes takes charge of his final home game for West Ham against relegation-threatened Luton Town. The Club announced earlier this week that the Scot will leave his role at the end of the 2023/24 campaign, following a successful four-and-a-half-year spell that has yielded three successive European quarter-finals, a UEFA Europa Conference League trophy and two top-ten Premier League finishes in the last three years. Before Julen Lopetegui - once of Real Madrid and Wolves - takes the reins in the capital, Moyes will at least endeavour to improve the Irons' harrowing home record of just two wins from 12 games in 2024.

Hello and welcome to live coverage of the Premier League meeting between West Ham and Luton Town at the London Stadium.
