How to watch every Premier League fixture
As with the post-lockdown fixtures last season, fans are still barred from stadiums. So, the Premier League and broadcasters have come together to ensure every game can be televised for at least the month of September.
Sky Sports has the rights to carry the majority of the games, while fellow pay TV subscriber BT Sport is also offering a selection, including the first two games of the season. Amazon Prime has some fixtures again and there’ll even be some action on free-to-air TV courtesy of the BBC. This weekend, all games are on Sky Sports and BT Sport.

Premier League season preview
Liverpool begin their Premier League defence against last season’s Championship winners Leeds United, who are returning to the Premier League for the first time in 15 years. It’s undoubtedly the pick of the weekend’s features.
With both Manchester clubs out of action due to their ultimately fruitless participation in the latter stages of the European competitions, their seasons won’t be kicking off for a while yet. It’ll provide an opportunity for heavy-spending Chelsea to lay down a marker, while Arsenal look to continue their improvement under Mikel Arteta.
Below the traditional big six, the battle for the European places will likely play out between Everton, Wolves, Leicester City and perhaps last year’s surprise package Sheffield United. The likes of Aston Villa and West Ham will be hoping to capitalise on narrow escapes from relegation to make their way towards mid-table.
Meanwhile, newly promoted teams Leeds, West Brom and Fulham will likely face a battle to avoid dropping back to the Championship at the first time of asking.
