Arsenal, Manchester United and Manchester City will all be in action on BT Sport in March as part of five exclusively live Premier League matches airing on the station.

As the business part of the season approaches, the Gunners and United will each be eyeing a spot in the top four, while City will be hoping to overtake Chelsea and claim the title yet again.

Arsenal have the chance to get the month off to a flying start on Sunday March 1st, when they host Roberto Martinez's Everton at the Emirates.

The Toffees have struggled for consistency in 2014-15 and so Arsene Wenger's men will be hopeful of claiming all three points in the 2pm kick-off.

Two sides at the other end of the table will be in action on Tuesday March 3rd, when West Brom make the short trip across the Midlands to take on Aston Villa in a 7:45pm kick-off at Villa Park in what promises to be a tight affair.

Date Time Home Away
Sunday, March 1 2.05pm Arsenal Everton
Tuesday, March 3 7.45pm Aston Villa West Brom
Wednesday, March 4 7.45pm Newcastle Manchester Utd
Saturday, March 14 12.45pm Crystal Palace QPR
Saturday, March 21 12.45pm Manchester City West Brom

The following evening then sees the Pardew-less Newcastle United host Manchester United in another 7:45pm kick-off that will be a true test of United's Champions League credentials.

St James' Park has provided some of the Red Devils' toughest tests over the years and this mid-week game promises to be no different as Louis Van Gaal chases a top four finish.

Two Saturday lunchtime kick-offs then round out BT Sport's March Premier League coverage, with Alan Pardew's new club, Crystal Palace, hoping to continue their resurgence in a home game on March 14th against struggling QPR, whose own manager Harry Redknapp has been under increasing pressure.

This potential relegation battle could have a major bearing on the final Premier League standings, and the 12:45pm game will therefore have several interested spectators.

The final game of the month on BT Sport sees title contenders Manchester City host West Brom at the Etihad in what appears to be straightforward three points on paper, but with Albion's Premier League status for next season not yet confirmed, the home side may yet face some stern opposition on March 21st, in another 12:45pm kick-off.

Simon Green, Head of BT Sport, commented: "We have a packed schedule of quality football for March, including a few midweek games as well. "Along with our Barclays Premier League matches, we’ll also have at least two exclusively live games from the 6th round of the FA Cup, when the last eight teams will be playing for a trip to a Wembley semi-final."
