BT Sport's coverage of the new Barclays Premier League season will begin at Old Trafford on August 8th, with Louis van Gaal's title-chasing Manchester United taking on Tottenham Hotspur.

The hosts will be hoping for a repeat of their last home performance against the north Londoners, which saw them run out comfortable 3-0 winners.

With both sides harbouring ambitions of at least a top four finish, and with some of the league's best stars on show, it promises to be the perfect curtain raiser.

Manchester United are in front of the BT cameras again on August 22nd, with former assistant manager Steve McClaren and his Newcastle United side the visitors.

A difficult campaign and a wretched run of form saw Newcastle flirt with relegation last season, but new boss McClaren will expect a performance in this highly-anticipated fixture on his old stomping ground.

Elsewhere, Ronald Koeman will be hoping his Southampton side can get this year's campaign off to the perfect start when they host Everton on August 15th.

Newcastle round off August on BT Sport with a home fixture against Arsenal on the 29th, before the champions Chelsea travel to Everton on September 12th.

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho knows exactly what it takes to win the Premier League, having won the title three times over two separate spells at Stamford Bridge.

Arsenal's Arsene Wenger also knows a thing or two about winning trophies, but is yet to mastermind a victory over his Portuguese rival. He will have another go when his side travel to Stamford Bridge in BT's live game on September 19th in what promises to be a fascinating tactical battle.

Manchester City will then get a chance to stake their claim for a title challenge a week later when they take on Tottenham at White Hart Lane on September 26th.

As well as live Premier League fixtures, BT Sport also has live coverage of the Community Shield on August 2nd and is also the only place for Aviva Premiership rugby and the UEFA Champions League.

News of BT's plans come after this week saw the unofficial launch of the Freeview version of BT Sport, allowing would-be viewers to preview its schedule of sports coverage.
