The Manchester derby is to be shown live and exclusively on Sky Sports.

Title-chasing Manchester City welcome fierce rivals Manchester United on March 20th and both will see this a key fixture for reasons beyond gaining local bragging rights.

City have been inconsistent this season, so a win will be a big psychological boost ahead of the title run-in.

United, meanwhile, have slipped out of the Champions League positions but still have an eye on lifting the Barclays Premier League trophy in May. 

A victory over Manchester City could also be a watershed moment for under-pressure boss Louis van Gaal.

Other big games on Sky Sports include the Valentine's Day clash between Arsenal and Leicester. Only goal difference separates the two sides at the top of the table right now, so this fixture has plenty riding on it.

Gary Hughes, Head of Football at Sky Sports, commented: "Sky Sports will continue to show every twist and turn of this incredible season.  

"These matches ensure that our viewers will be able to follow all the drama as it unfolds at a critical time in the season for all teams in the Premier League."

Sky Sports is exclusively showing 116 Premier League matches this season, with the likes of Thierry Henry, Graeme Souness, Jamie Carragher and Jamie Redknapp providing expert analysis for every game.

It has already confirmed it will show even more top-flight games during the 2016/17 season, with the number of matches being broadcast live going up to 126. 

Sky Sports has also secured the rights to show clips of every Premier League fixture on its various digital platforms from next season.
