Enjoy all the January action on Sky Sports!

  

There’s plenty of sporting action coming to your screens in January with Premier League football, international cricket and the NFL play-offs among the highlights

By Becky Gamester-Newton, Writer

We may have just emerged blinking into a new calendar year, but many of the world’s top sporting competitions are in full swing right now.

 

In football, the Premier League continues to intrigue at both ends of the table. Will Arsenal maintain their lead over Manchester City, or will the defending champions close the gap? The Gunners face their north London rivals Tottenham (who also face the daunting prospect of playing City twice in a month) in one of this January’s top live fixtures on Sky Sports.

 

And who will be relegated is anyone’s guess at the moment, but you can have a go by watching Leeds, Bournemouth, West Ham and Nottingham Forest attempt to steer themselves clear of the bottom three places in live Sky Sports fixtures this month.

 

The League Cup is also reaching its closing stages, with the quarter-finals to look forward to this month. Premier League strugglers Southampton could certainly do with a morale boost – and what would be better than beating Manchester City? Find out if they can, live on Sky Sports.

 

Elsewhere, there’s the start of NFL play-offs to look forward to as we head towards the Super Bowl spectacle, while the NBA takes a trip to Paris as the Chicago Bulls face the Detroit Pistons in the French capital.

 

Remember, you can follow all the live action on Sky Sports wherever you are in the UK, as long as there’s WiFi, 3G or 4G, thanks to the Sky Sports app. Simply download the free app from the Apple app store for iPad or iPhone, or from Google Play.

Here’s all the action you can enjoy live on Sky Sports in the coming month…

 

Football: Premier League


The Premier League is back at full pelt following the World Cup, and there’s excitement aplenty at either end of the table. The battle for the title is hugely entertaining, with defending champions Manchester City aiming to close the gap on Arsenal – while Manchester United, Tottenham and Newcastle all fancy their chances of making the coveted top four positions.

 

The north London derby between Spurs and the Gunners is one of this month’s highlights, as well as Tottenham’s two clashes with City and their trip to one of the season’s surprise packages, Fulham. Arsenal also host Man Utd in what could be a fiery and unpredictable tie with both teams in good form.

 

At the bottom, it’s equally fascinating with no one team seemingly falling away from the rest of the pack. Most of the bottom half of the table could easily find themselves in a relegation place, so they will all know that a decent run can change their fortunes quickly. Get involved in the drama by watching Leeds’ games against Villa, Brentford and Nottingham Forest, Bournemouth’s trip to Brentford and West Ham’s clash with high flyers Newcastle at St James’ Park.

Football: Scottish Premiership

Celtic remain at the top of the Premiership table remains following their Hogmanay 2-2 draw at Ibrox, but you can be sure bitter rivals Rangers haven’t quite given up yet. You can see how the Gers fare on their trip to Kilmarnock, as well as Celtic’s games at Dundee United and St Johnstone.

Football: Women’s Super League


The WSL returns from its winter break – and the first game back is a doozy. After flying out of the blocks and winning their first six games, Arsenal spent most of the first half of the season top of the table. But a surprise home defeat to Man Utd gave champions Chelsea the chance to sneak ahead before Christmas, which they duly took.

 

The Blues spent the festive period sitting three points clear at the top, but Arsenal still have a game in hand. So their meeting at the Emirates Stadium could not be bigger. How will Arsenal cope without their injured stars Vivianne Miedema and Beth Mead? We’re about to find out… Later in the month you can see Arsenal away at Brighton and West Ham, while Manchester City and their free-scoring striker Bunny Shaw are in action three times on Sky Sports.

Football: EFL Carabao Cup

The first major competition of the season is already nearing its conclusion, with the quarter-finals afoot. The impressive Newcastle have a home tie against Leicester City, who have improved in the league in recent months – while league strugglers Southampton face the somewhat daunting task of hosting Manchester City.

 

As well as the coveted trip to Wembley for the final, the Foxes and the Saints will see the competition as a route into European football next season. Watch both ties on Sky Sports and discover who makes the semi-finals – two-legged affairs scheduled to start on Tuesday 24 January, also live on Sky Sports.

Football: EFL Championship


A gap may have appeared between the Championship’s top two and the rest in recent weeks but the battle for the play-off positions is wide-ranging, with Forest’s rise into the Premier League last season after a shaky start an example to inspire the bottom-half clubs.

 

You can watch Blackburn aim to consolidate their play-off spot with their games against Rotherham and Wigan, while the Tees-Wear derby between Middlesbrough and Sunderland at the Stadium of Light has added intrigue with both sides in similar positions. Norwich, with former Huddersfield boss David Wagner now at the helm, also hope to make up some ground by picking up points against Coventry before they face league leaders Burnley.

Football: Bundesliga

While other big European leagues restarted in late December or early January, the Bundesliga was determined that it should have a decent winter break after the World Cup – and the German national team’s players were obviously keen not to miss out, as evidenced by their meek early exit from the tournament – but it’s back! And it’s more competitive than ever this year, with the likes of Freiburg and Union Berlin in serious contention for those Champions League places.

 

After the restart weekend, there’s what the Germans call an Englische Woche – a full programme of midweek fixtures – so you have a bumper week of Bundesliga matches to entertain you. After that, you can see champions Bayern against Europa League winners Frankfurt.

Cricket: Internationals


England face South Africa in a three-match ODI series postponed from December 2020 thanks to Covid. The series forms part of the Cricket World Cup Super League, part of ICC World Cup qualification, with a total of 30 points – 10 points for each win – at stake. Fast bowler Jofra Archer is expected to return for England after a long spell out with injury.

 

Before that, there’s another intriguing ODI series between Pakistan and New Zealand, live from Karachi. Pakistan came into the series on a eight-match winning streak in the format and won the first game by six wickets against a New Zealand side who have won only three ODIs in their past nine attempts. Over in South Africa, India and West Indies join the hosts for a three-way women’s T20 tournament ahead of the World Cup in February.

Cricket: Big Bash League


The blistering Big Bash League continues with several teams welcoming back returning Test cricketers while others head off to rival T20 leagues. The Sydney Sixers – enjoying a good start alongside the Perth Scorchers – will be particularly delighted with the changes, as Australia stars Steve Smith and Nathan Lyon join the squad.

 

Those two sides face off on 15 January, while Sydney Thunder v Melbourne Renegades on 19 January  should also be an entertaining clash.

 

The round-robin format ends on 25 January before the top five teams head into the play-off matches called the Eliminator, Qualifier, Knockout and Challenger. This season’s competition then comes to a close with the grand final on 4 February.

MI Cape Town, meanwhile, will have a bowling attack featuring the likes of Sam Curran, Kagiso Rabada and Jofra Archer. MI stands for Mumbai Indians: if you’re slightly mystified by the team names, it’ll come as no surprise that the SA20 teams are IPL subsidiaries.

 

The six teams will play against each other twice in a round-robin format before the semi-finals and final.

Golf

Happy new year, golf fans! The first full-field of 2023 tees off in Hawaii as the Sony Open sees the likes of Jordan Spieth, Adam Scott and defending champion Hideki Matsuyama take part.

 

Meanwhile the inaugural Hero Cup – seen as a warm-up for the Ryder Cup – sees Tommy Fleetwood captain the Great Britain and Ireland side, and Francesco Molinari head up Continental Europe. And the sport stays in Abu Dhabi the following week for its eponymous Championship on the DP European Tour.

 

Also in January, Danny Willett and Rickie Fowler are set to take part in the American Express Desert Classic event, Jon Rahm headlines the Farmers Insurance Open near San Diego, and Rory McIlroy heads a stellar field at the Dubai Desert Classic.

Netball: Quad Series


The Quad Series returns, with Cape Town – which will also host the sport’s World Cup this summer – the setting for this year’s tournament. The schedule sees England, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa play each other in a round-robin format before a third-place play-off and final on 26 January.
