Reckon the Premier League can’t get more exciting than last year? Then prepare to be proved wrong. Here are our top five reasons why the coming season is going to be the greatest of all time
1. There’s more live action!
You want more? You got it. This season, Sky Sports is showing a massive 126 live Premier League games – that’s ten more than last season.
2. Thank football it’s Friday
Forget Friday and start talking Fri-yay, because for the first time ever Sky Sports is showing up to ten live games on Friday nights. First up? Manchester United v Southampton at 6.30pm on Friday 19 August.
3. New stars on the pitch...
We could write about Granit Xhaka. Or Nolito. Or Michy Batshuayi. But let’s be honest. While these massive signings are exciting, the player we all can’t wait to watch is the Swedish, overhead-kick-scoring legend who has netted over 300 goals and won 13 league titles in the last 15 years. “I will become god of Manchester,” promises Zlatan Ibrahimović.
4. ...and in the dugout
Love him or hate him, there is no debate. The Premier League became a more colourful place the moment Manchester United made José Mourinho their new boss. And talking of new managers in Manchester, purveyor of beautiful football and all-round super-gaffer Pep Guardiola is now in charge of Manchester City. “This is the right moment to come here and prove myself,” he says. Fasten your seatbelts.
5. Watch at home and away
And now for the best reason of all. You can watch every live Sky Sports game on the Sky Sports app. So it doesn’t matter if you’re out and about during your side’s crucial clash. Simply download the app and you can watch all seven Sky Sports channels on the go.
