Our coverage begins on Saturday 2 October as Manchester United play host to Everton in the early kick off. 

Having finished second behind local rivals City last season, United have genuine aspirations of winning a first Premier League title since Sir Alex Ferguson's retirement back in 2014.

With Jadon Sancho's arrival and a deal for Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane reportedly in the offing, there's growing optimism around Old Trafford that they can bridge the gap at the top to rivals Man City and Liverpool.

The Toffees will provide a stern test of United's title credentials with ex-Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez at the helm.

Can Rafa return to haunt his former foes or will United make a statement in their bid to end their Premier League title wait?

Two weeks later, following the second international break of the season, the BT Sport cameras head south to Vicarage Road as Watford continue life back in the top flight against Liverpool.

BT Sport's August TV games

We're showing three live matches in the opening month, with champions Man City and title rivals Liverpool and Man Utd all in action.

The Reds lost their Premier League crown to Man City in an injury-plagued campaign last season and will be desperate to avoid a slip up against the Hornets.

Jurgen Klopp will have mixed memories of Vicarage Road having watched his side's 27-game unbeaten 2019/20 season go up in smoke with a 3-0 defeat at the hands of Watford.

Will history repeat itself or will Liverpool assert their authority over the returning Hornets?

Seven days later there's an all-German affair in the dugout at Stamford Bridge as Thomas Tuchel's Chelsea play host to Daniel Farke's Norwich.

The Canaries are out to avoid an immediate return to the Championship after Farke led them back to the top flight at the first time of asking.

Fresh from leading the Blues to a first Champions League triumph since 2012, Tuchel is aiming to become only the second German manager ever to win the Premier League, with many pundits tipping Chelsea to push Liverpool and City all the way.

BT Sport's September TV games

We've got three more live matches heading your way, including a rematch of the Champions League final between Chelsea and Man City.

Our October coverage concludes with a mouth-watering encounter between Leicester City and Arsenal as two teams with aspirations of qualifying for the Champions League go head-to-head at the King Power Stadium.

Leicester beat Chelsea to win the FA Cup last season but narrowly missed out on the top four after a heartbreaking late-season slump in league form.

Can Brendan Rodgers go one better this year and finally lead the Foxes back to European football's top table?

Standing in their way will be an Arsenal side desparate for improvement after enduring an abysmal campaign on all fronts last season.

Mikel Arteta's men failed to qualify for Europe for the first time in 25 years and the aim will be to rectify that disappointment this season.

Will Arteta's masterplan start bearing fruit or will Leicester heap pressure on the Spaniard's precarious position as Arsenal head coach?
