Top six go head-to-head on Sky Sport Premier League

Monday, August 14th 2017 by Phil Wilkinson-Jones

Sky Sports will show six clashes between last season’s top six sides on its dedicated Premier League channel in October and November.

Liverpool take on Manchester United on Saturday 14 October and both sides face last season’s runners up Tottenham before the end of the month.

A bumper Super Sunday on 5 November sees title holders Chelsea take on Man Utd and Arsenal visit Manchester City.

On Sunday 19 November Spurs face Arsenal in the north London derby.

Between now and November, Sky Sports Premier League will show 45 matches from the top flight of English football, including at least one from every ground in the division.

Across the season, Sky Q customers will be able to watch 124 live Premier League games in Ultra HD and with Dolby Atmos sound.

As well as launching a dedicated Premier League channel, Sky has also introduced the ‘Watch From Start’ function, which allows viewers to return to the start of matches and easily skip to goals and bookings.

Sky Sports’ other football channel will show 127 from the EFL, the final group matches and play-offs from the FIFA World Cup qualifiers in Europe, 30 matches from the SPFL Premiership including every Old Firm derby, the Scottish Cup, La Liga, MLS, Eredivisie, the Chinese Super League and more.

Customers can also see highlights of Premier League and EFL games on their phones on match days using the Sky Sports Football Score Centre.

Sky Sports’ head of football Gary Hughes said: “With 20 more exclusively live matches, the Sky Sports Premier League channel will continue to follow every team in depth like never before.

“From The Debate and Premier League Prediction shows to Soccer AM, Gillette Soccer Saturday and more – fans will get the whole story.”

Live coverage will be presented by Kelly Cates, Dave Jones and Simon Thomas with analysis provided by the likes of Gary Neville, Jamie Carragher, Thierry Henry, Graham Souness and Jamie Redknapp.
