BT Sport will air three Barclays Premier League matches in April, including a potentially crucial game for title-chasing Manchester City.

Manuel Pellegrini's side will welcome Mauricio Pochettino's Southampton to the Etihad for a 12:45pm kick-off on Saturday April 5th.

When the two sides met in December at St. Mary's, the Saints came from behind to claim a 1-1 draw - Dani Osvaldo scoring a sensational equaliser.

Southampton are in action again on BT Sport on Saturday April 26th when they play host to Roberto Martinez's Everton (kick-off 12:45pm).

The Toffees - who currently sit in sixth place, five points behind Tottenham Hotspur but with a game in hand - are another side with European ambitions this season.

Meanwhile, BT Sport fans can look forward to a London derby on Saturday April 19th, as Fulham travel to White Hart Lane to take on Spurs.

The Cottagers have been in the Barclays Premier League since 2001, but are in real danger of losing their top-flight status this season. With ten games to go, they sit bottom of the league, four points adrift of 17th place West Brom.

Tottenham Hotspur v Fulham - as with the other games - is a 12:45pm kick-off and will be broadcast live on BT Sport 1.

Simon Green, Head of BT Sport, said the broadcaster is continuing to show "great live action" from the Barclays Premier League.

"We showed matches involving Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United in February, we’ll show Chelsea v Arsenal exclusively live in March and we are delighted that Manchester City, Spurs and Everton will now take their turn in April," he stated.

"BT Sport will also be showing one of the FA Cup semi-finals in April as well as the exciting closing stages of the Bundesliga, Serie A and the French Ligue 1."
