Premier League

After a sensational start to the new Premier League season, we’ve got three more live offerings in September.

The action begins at Selhurst Park for what promises to be an unmissable London derby between Crystal Palace and Tottenham.

Spurs have defied expectations to make the perfect start to the new campaign under Nuno Espirito Santo and are top of the league going into the international break after three successive wins.

Palace have made a slow start to life under Patrick Viera but showed some promise in an entertaining 2-2 draw at West Ham. Chelsea loanee Conor Gallagher twice pegged the Hammers back to earn Palace their first point of the season in a markedly improved performance.

A week later, Bruno Lage’s Wolves entertain new boys Brentford. Wolves find themselves in the bottom three after three matches after spurning a number of glorious chances in every game.

The Bees have made an impressive start to life in the top flight with one win and two draws. They backed up an opening day win against Arsenal with draws against Palace and Aston Villa and will be looking to put more points on the board with a positive result against Wolves.

Our final offering in September is a must-watch repeat of last season’s Champions League final as title contenders Chelsea and Man City square off at Stamford Bridge.

Both sides have strengthened over the summer and will be looking to lay down a marker in what has the makings of an absolute classic in west London.

Gallagher Premiership

After a scarcely believable 2020/21 Premiership season ended in astonishing fashion at Twickenham, the new Gallagher Premiership campaign gets underway in September.

Harlequins claimed their first title for nine years in June as they beat Exeter 40-38 in a thrilling final after one of the most entertaining seasons in recent memory.

The Premiership returns to BT Sport for the start of the 2021/22 season with 21 live games from the first seven rounds of action.

Thirteen teams will battle it out for a place at Twickenham after relegation was scrapped last season and five-time winners Saracens won promotion back to the top flight.
