The Premier League bookends our live action on BT Sport this weekend, with a Saturday lunchtime and Sunday evening kick off.

First up, a testing trip to Selhurst Park for champions Liverpool as Jurgen Klopp's men face a team from the capital for the third match in a row. 

Beating Roy Hodgson's Crystal Palace in south London is no easy feat - as Tottenham found out last weekend - and the Reds will have to be in top form to come away with all three points.

Sunday then sees a tasty fixture from the west Midlands as West Brom play host to Aston Villa with points and bragging rights up for grabs at The Hawthorns.

Having picked up an unexpected point away at Manchester City in midweek and then replacing Slaven Bilic with Sam Allardyce, it's been a busy week for Albion already.

Can Big Sam working his magic against a Jack Grealish-inspired Villa immediately?

As usual, every single Premier League game will be available to watch on BT TV this weekend.

UFC Fight Night - Thompson v Neal 

BT Sport 1 HD, 10pm on Saturday

After one of the most exciting numbered cards in recent memory at UFC 256, with the main event already being described as the greatest flyweight fight of all time, the action continues this Saturday night.

This time it's a UFC Fight Night from Las Vegas as Stephen Thompson clashes with Geoff Neal in a welterweight bout.

The card also features Jose Aldo v Marlon Vera and Michel Pereira v Khaos Williams, with the main event being labelled a 'strikers' delight' given the approaches of both fighters.

Another card not to be missed!

Australia v India, 1st Test

BT Sport 2 HD, 3.45am Thursday-Monday

Test match cricket returns to BT Sport as the top-ranked nation in the world play host to number three as Australia and India renew their fierce rivalry.

The four-Test series begins with a day-night game in Adelaide, with coverage starting at 3.45am on Thursday morning in the UK.

The tourists won a Test series for the first time Down Under when the sides clashed two years ago and Australia will be determined to regain the Border-Gavaskar Trophy.

And that’s not all, the Big Bash is also underway with every minute of the drama available to BT Sport customers over the next six weeks. 

European football bonanza

This weekend is a busy one with five matches from the Bundesliga and a further seven from Ligue 1 exclusively available on our platforms.

Friday night's Bundesliga action features a Borussia Dortmund side fresh from dismissing Lucien Favre visiting the forest of Union Berlin desperate for a victory to keep themselves in the title race.

Another contender, RB Leipzig, are in action at home to Cologne on Saturday before the champions Bayern Munich visit Bayer Leverkusen that same evening.

In France, Metz's clash with Lens and Marseille's tie with Reims get us going on Saturday, before the late kick-off sees Lyon visit the south coast to face Nice.

Rounding off our four games on Sunday is champions Paris Saint-Germain's trip to Lille, fresh from defeat to Lyon last weekend and looking for service to resume.

TV channels and times for all games are available on our What's On page.
