BT Sport will show five live Barclays Premier League matches in February, alongside coverage of the FA Cup, UEFA Champions League and Europa League.
Eight separate teams will star in BT's February Premier League lineup, which will kick off on February 2nd with West Ham United's home game against struggling Aston Villa. The Hammers are chasing a European spot and will be looking to continue their strong start to the season against a Villa side that has recorded just six points from their opening 16 matches.
The following day will see the broadcaster televise the clash between Premier League newcomers Watford and Chelsea, who will be looking for a strong second half of the season after losing nine of their opening 16 games – a poor streak that resulted in the sacking of manager Jose Mourinho.
On February 6th, fans will be tuning in to witness a match that could have a major impact on the title race as Manchester City take on Leicester City at the Etihad Stadium. The Foxes have continued to confound expectations throughout the campaign and currently find themselves top of the league, three points ahead of third-placed Man City – largely thanks to the red-hot goalscoring form of Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez.
A week later, the pay TV broadcaster will screen Manchester United's visit to Sunderland. Despite lying 19th in the table, the Black Cats have experienced something of a revival of late, securing wins against the likes of Crystal Palace, Stoke and fierce local rivals Newcastle United.
BT Sport will round out the month by screening West Ham's home clash against Sunderland – a fixture that will see former Hammers boss Sam Allardyce return to the Boleyn Ground for the first time since taking the reins at the north-east side.
Simon Green, Head of BT Sport, said: "February is set to be one of our best months ever with an action-packed football schedule on BT Sport. There are teams hoping to fight it out for the Premier League title, European qualification or involved in the battle against relegation.
"BT Sport will also be showing live FA Cup games as well as UEFA Champions League and Europa League games in a February football feast."
