Premier League TV picks: BT Sport to show three matches in September including Chelsea v Man City
BT Sport will show a repeat of the Champions League final with Crystal Palace, Tottenham, Wolves and Brentford also in action.
We’ve got an unmissable London derby to kick off our live Premier League coverage in September, when Crystal Palace entertain Tottenham.
Spurs finally ended their chaotic managerial search when they appointed former Wolves boss Nuno Espírito Santo on a contract until 2023.
Nuno presided over a hugely successful spell at Molineux but has a mounting in-tray at the north London club, including securing the services of England captain Harry Kane.
Tottenham tailed off last season after a promising start under Jose Mourinho, finishing five points adrift of fourth in seventh.
BT Sport’s Premier League games in August
We’ve already announced three unmissable live matches as the 2021/22 season begins in style.
They travel to Selhurst Park on Saturday 11 September to take on a Palace side who recently appointed former Arsenal captain Patrick Viera as their new manager.
The 45-year-old Frenchman signed a three-year contract, taking over from Roy Hodgson, and is tasked with revamping an ageing squad and signing up a number of key players to longer deals.
A week later, Santo’s former employers Wolves are in action against new boys Brentford at Molineux.
Wolves moved quickly to appoint former Benfica boss Bruno Lage as their new manager and they will be targeting a more successful 2021/22 campaign after a below par 13th-placed finish last season.
Our final offering of the month is a tantalising encounter between Premier League champions Man City and European kings Chelsea.
Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea beat City to claim a second Champions League trophy in Porto in May, courtesy of a solitary goal from Kai Havertz.
The defeat left City still searching for the Champions League and they will be desperate for retribution at Stamford Bridge on Saturday 25 September.
Tuchel transformed the Blues after replacing Frank Lampard and his side are being widely tipped to run City close for the Premier League title this season.
Both side will be desperate to lay down a marker in what promises to be a must-watch encounter even this early into the season.
