Big Guns Takes Center Stage As Sky Sports + BT Announce Fixtures Chosen For Live TV
Sky Sports and BT Sports have announced the fixtures to be shown live on TV in April with Arsenal, Chelsea, Man City and Liverpool taking center stage.
Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester City and Liverpool will take center stage as the Premier League title race hots up with each team selected to be shown live on TV at least three times each in April, Sky Sports and BT Sport have announced today.
Much may have changed by the time April comes around as there are some mouthwatering games coming up in March, but with just four points currently separating the top four heading into the final 11 games, it’s no wonder Sky Sports have chosen to concentrate on those battling for the title for the majority of their April live games.
The battle for the top four and European qualification is also high on the agenda for Sky Sports, with 16 of the 17 fixtures chosen for broadcast in April feature teams currently occupying the top six positions in the table, while BT Sport have also chosen to concentrate on the top teams with all three of their live games featuring teams in the top 7.
The first stand-out clash of the month sees Everton host Arsenal at Goodison Park on Sunday 6th April while both of Liverpool’s key games against fellow title rivals Man City and Chelsea at Anfield will be aired on Sky Sports on the 13th and 27th.
Here is a run-through of April’s live fixtures on Sky Sports:
- Chelsea v Stoke, Saturday 5 April, 5.30pm
