This means millions of viewers will have the opportunity to enjoy free-to-air Barclays Premier League football on Saturday October 26th, as struggling Crystal Palace host London rivals Arsenal.

Arsène Wenger's Gunners sit top of the league, but will be seething after conceding a later winner to Borussia Dortmund in Europe on Tuesday night.

The Eagles also have a point to prove following an underwhelming start to the season, which sees them lie second bottom after eight games and seven defeats.

BT, Sky, Virgin Media and Freeview viewers will be able to see all the action unfold from the comfort of their own living room, as the two sides chase vital Barclays Premier League points.

A host of other football matches will be broadcast on BT Sport over the weekend, including a Friday night encounter between Ross County v Inverness Caledonian Thistle in the Scottish Premiership.

The Highland Derby - the most northerly in the UK - kicks off at 7:45pm on BT Sport 2, with second-placed Caley looking to close the gap to league leaders Celtic to just one point.

BT Sport is broadcasting five other games on Saturday October 26th, on top of Crystal Palace v Arsenal, with the pick of the fixtures being Wolfsburg v Werder Bremen in the Bundesliga at 5:30pm and Inter Milan v Verona in Serie A at 7:45pm.

Fans of Australia's Hyundai A-League can check out Central Coast Mariners v Adelaide United (7:30am) and Sydney FC v Western Sydney Wanderers (9:45am) - providing they can get out of bed early enough.

There's more action from Down Under on Sunday October 27th, but the kick-off times are even earlier, with Wellington Phoenix v Newcastle Jets live at 4am and Perth Glory v Melbourne Heart on BT Sport 1 at 6am.

Four European fixtures follow later in the day, starting with Napoli v Torino in Serie A at 11:30am and Borussia Monchengladbach v Eintracht Frankfurt in the Bundesliga at 4:30pm.
