Leeds United v Middlesbrough
Friday 31 August, 7pm, Sky Sports Football/HD (CH 513/503)
After his surprising summer appointment, legendary coach Marcelo Bielsa has inspired Leeds to a strong start to the new Sky Bet Championship season. And, with the Whites playing some scintillating football of late, this week’s contest with Tony Pulis’s Middlesbrough should produce a fascinating clash of styles both on the pitch and on the touchline.
St Helens v Wigan Warriors
Friday 31 August, 7.30pm, Sky Sports Arena/HD (CH 518/508)
The top two sides of this season’s Super League go head to head in arguably the most anticipated match-up of the Super 8s so far. Warriors coach Shaun Wane will hope his side can reel in the rampant Saints, who have taken the league by storm with their craft and clout.
Leicester City v Liverpool
Saturday 1 September, 11.30am, Sky Sports Premier League/HD (CH 512/502)
Almost a year after Jürgen Klopp’s Reds last visited the King Power Stadium, Leicester manager Claude Puel will be hoping his side don’t repeat the mistakes that led to last season’s 3-2 defeat. Keep an eye out for Liverpool’s free-scoring Mohamed Salah up against Foxes powerhouse Harry Maguire.
Celtic v Rangers
Sunday 2 September, 11am, Sky Sports Football/HD (CH 513/503)
It’s one of the fiercest club rivalries in football. And there’s added spice to the first Old Firm derby of the season, because it pits new Rangers manager Steven Gerrard against his former Liverpool coach Brendan Rodgers. It’s feisty. It’s explosive. It’s one of sport’s truly must-see clashes.
Cardiff City v Arsenal
Sunday 2 September, 12.30pm, Sky Sports Premier League/HD (CH 512/502)
Premier League new boys Cardiff host Unai Emery’s new-look Arsenal, with the Gunners hoping to make the home fans weep into their Welsh cakes come the final whistle. After their bruising defeat to Bournemouth in the opening game, the Blues need to pick up points quickly.
Watford v Tottenham Hotspur
Sunday 2 September, 3.30pm, Sky Sports Premier League/HD (512/502)
Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino takes his side to Vicarage Road hoping to continue their positive start to the season… but Javi Gracia’s Watford might have something to say about that. With both teams being known for their fast, high-pressing and attacking football, this will definitely inject your Sunday afternoon with a bit of razzle-dazzle.
From Thursday 6 September, 7pm, Sky Sports Golf/HD (CH 515/505)
With $1.6 million going to the winner, it’s easy to see why the world’s top golfers would want to spend four days walking the plush greens of the Aronimink Golf Course in Pennsylvania. The big news? A rejuvenated Tiger Woods will be among the big names taking to the field this year.
