Sky Sports Premier League channel screens seven more big head-to-heads

Friday 11 August 2017

Sky Sports’ dedicated Premier League channel will show seven big head-to-heads between last season’s top six in October and November, and 20 games in total.

From now until November, Sky Sports Premier League will show 45 matches from England’s top tier, show every team, and visit every ground in the division.

First up, English football’s two most successful sides meet at Anfield, as Liverpool entertain Manchester United.

Then the 5th of November will be one to remember on Sky Sports Premier League, as Super Sunday will showcase Chelsea v Manchester United and Manchester City v Arsenal. Elsewhere, Sky Sports will televise three key games involving Tottenham, including matches against Manchester United, Liverpool and the north London derby against Arsenal.

Award-winning 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, Jamie Redknapp and more.

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.”

With Sky Q, customers can enjoy greater detail with 124 live Premier League games available in Ultra HD, and for the first time this season Dolby Atmos® support that will bring breath-taking sound to your living room. Also new is the ‘Watch From Start’ function, allowing viewers to get up to speed on all the action with the ability to return to the start of matches and easily skip to goals and bookings.

It’s all part of another stellar season of football on Sky Sports which features 127 matches 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, Spain’s La Liga, MLS, Eredivisie, the Chinese Super League and more.
