The Premier League returns from the international break in style on BT Sport, beginning at Newcastle’s St James Park where Chelsea look to extend their 10-match unbeaten run.

Frank Lampard’s men have been in superb form of late and have won their last four games in all competitions, by an aggregate score of 14-1.

Steve Bruce’s Magpies have been effective if not enthralling so far this season and could provide a stern test for the Londoners.

The actions continues at Villa Park where an inspired Aston Villa hope to keep their superb run of form going against Brighton.

Jack Grealish, Ross Barkley, John McGinn and Ollie Watkins have propelled Dean Smith’s side to the upper echelons of the table and they have the Seagulls, who are winless in six, in their crosshairs.

And the live action doesn’t end there!

Manchester United’s meeting with West Brom will also be shown live and exclusive on BT Sport as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer goes in search of a second successive league win.

They claimed a morale-boosting victory over Everton prior to the break to ease the pressure on Solskjaer and will be desperate to kick-start their season with a win over the winless Baggies.

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

After a brief hiatus, Premiership Rugby returns and in huge news for fans, every match played behind closed doors this season will be broadcast live on BT Sport.

What’s more, with the BT Sport Match Pass, eligible club season ticket holders will gain free access to home matches online until Christmas when the scheme will be reviewed.

The new season starts on Friday, with reigning champions Exeter Chiefs travelling to the Twickenham Stoop to face Harlequins without a number of their star players who are away on international duty.

Rob Baxter is looking to lead his side to successive titles after guiding the Chiefs to a 19-13 win against Wasps in the final last season, while Quins are looking to push on after a sixth-placed finish last term.

The same evening, Sale Sharks take on Northampton Saints, ahead of three more live matches (Bath v NewcastleLeicester Tigers v Gloucester and Worcester Warriors v London Irish) coming your way on Saturday.

The opening round culminates in a repeat of last season’s semi-final between Wasps and Bristol Bears in what promises to be a thrilling end to the weekend at the Ricoh Arena.

After an incredible season on and off the pitch, the 2020/21 campaign is set to feature even more incredible live rugby so settle in for a huge opening weekend as our expert team bring you every minute of the action.

Final MotoGP race of the season

An extraordinary MotoGP season concludes in Portugal, a week after Joan Mir wrapped up the title for the first time.

Mir, 23, became the first Suzuki rider to win the championship since 2000 and in a wildly unpredictable season, the Spaniard secured the title despite winning only one race.

“When you follow one dream all your life and then the finally you achieve it... At the moment I don't believe what is happening,” he said after he was confirmed as champion.

The riders’ title has been awarded but the constructors’ crown is going down to the wire, with Suzuki and Ducati still in contention.

Focus will also be on the Moto2 and Moto3 titles with both still to be decided in Portugal.

In another interesting subplot, the race will also mark the end of an era with Andrea Dovizioso and Cal Crutchlow both bowing out and will not feature on the grid in 2021.

As usual, we have full coverage of the warm-ups, free practice sessions and qualifying from 9am on Friday all the way through to Sunday's races.

UFC 255: Figueiredo vs Perez 

BT Sport 1 HD, BT Sport app & btsport.com from 1am on Saturday night

We have your reason to stay up late this weekend, with a huge UFC card from Las Vegas on Saturday night, headlined by two flyweight world championship bouts.

Deiveson Figueiredo puts his belt on the line for the first time in the main event when he takes on Alex Perez.

The Brazilian emphatically won the title in a rematch against Joseph Benavidez after putting him to sleep with a rear naked choke in the first round.

Contender Series graduate Alex Perez is on a three-fight winning streak, winning his last fight against Jussier Formiga at UFC 250 and should provide a stern test of the champion’s credentials.

The co-main event sees another flyweight title bout, as Valentina Shevchenko takes on Jennifer Maia.

Shevchenko; who has defeated Holly Holm, Joanna Jedrzejczyk, Julianna Pena and Jessica Eye; is currently ranked the No. 3 women’s pound-for-pound athlete.

Maia earned her title shot after defeating Joanne Calderwood and she would become the first women to defeat Shevchenko at 125lb should she claim an upset victory.

Welterweights Mike Perry and Tim Means are also set to collide in what promises to be a war, while Katlyn Chookagian takes on Cynthia Calvillo in a contest that could have far-reaching implications for the 125lb title picture.
