Follow live coverage as Brentford take on Chelsea in the Premier League today.

Manchester City are reigning champions after beating Liverpool in a neck-and-neck 2021/22 title race to the finish line, where a comeback win on the final day of the season against Aston Villa gave Pep Guardiola’s side their fourth title in five years secured.

Jurgen Klopp’s Reds were on their way to a quadruple win last season but have only had to settle for victories in the FA Cup and Carabao Cup and will be looking to win the title again, just like in 2020.

It was a dramatic season for Chelsea a year ago as Roman Abramovich has now been replaced by Todd Boehly as west London owner. He will want an immediate return on his hefty investment at Stamford Bridge, while Tottenham, back in the Champions League, are also keen to make a comeback.

It’s not just about the action at the top, however, as Fulham, Bournemouth and Nottingham Forest are promoted to the top flight for 2021/22, hoping to hold their own against the best of English football and avoid relegation.

We bring you all the action and updates from today’s game on the live blog below:
