September Premier League fixtures

If you’re a BT Sport subscriber and a Manchester United fan, then this September fixture guide is going to make for nice reading. BT Sport will be showing two live Manchester United away games, both against West Ham and Watford, the latter of which finished 4-2 last season with left back Ashley Young scoring twice in a victory for the Red Devils.

BT Sport also has an exciting home match for Chelsea fans in late September when Chelsea take on Champions League runners up Liverpool. This has potential to be a great watch for BT Sport viewers, with Mohamed Salah looking to impress against his former club.

Liverpool fans will also want to keep the 15th of September free to watch the mouthwatering tie against Tottenham. Sky Sports will be airing this lunchtime game — which happens to be the Spurs’ first televised Premier League match at their new state-of-the-art stadium.

Sky Sports will also be showing a battle of the new managers when Marco Silva’s Everton take on Manuel Pellegrini’s new look West Ham on the 16th of September.
