The return of the Premier League

The return of the Premier League


As the season kicks off again with live matches on Sky Sports, BT Sport, the BBC and Prime Video, we tackle the big questions about what’s to come

By Virgin TV Edit

Ready to fill your boots with some live action from the Premier League? We had a feeling you’d say yes.


It’s been over three months since the top flight last entertained us, but it’s time to get the ball rolling once more, with 92 glorious games on Virgin TV between now and the end of the campaign. If that’s not enough to get you grinning from ear to ear like Jürgen Klopp we don’t know what will.


From the title race to the tussle for the top four – plus where and when you can watch every single match on the box – we’ve got the answers to the big questions everyone is asking…


Very soon indeed – if Manchester City lose to Arsenal on Wednesday 17 June. Should the reigning champions (who are 25 points behind Liverpool) be beaten by the Gunners, the Reds can end their 30-year wait for the title by winning their next match on Sunday 21 June. Did we mention it’s against bitter local rivals Everton?


Rather nicely. Manchester City, Leicester, Chelsea, Manchester United, Wolves and Sheffield United are still slugging it out for Champions League qualification, while Arsenal and Spurs shouldn’t be written off just yet. If you want a snapshot of how tight things are, just five points separate Chelsea in fourth and Sheffield United in seventh. This one looks like it’s going down to the wire.


This is one scrap that’s far from settled. Leicester City’s Jamie Vardy is this season’s deadliest marksman so far, with 19 goals to his name. But there are plenty of top strikers in hot pursuit, including Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (17), Sergio Agüero of Manchester City (16), Liverpool’s Mo Salah (16) and Southampton’s Danny Ings (15). Game on!


If there’s live Premier League football to be watched, you can watch it on Virgin TV. All remaining 92 games of the season will be shown live on Sky Sports (64 games, 25 of which are free to air on Pick), BT Sport (20 games), the BBC (four games) and Prime Video (four games, all of which are free to air). Want to know what’s on and where you can watch it? Then get bang up to speed with our handy fixtures guide.


No, is the short answer. At the moment, everything is subject to government approval. If the season needs to be suspended for a second time then it will be. What would happen after that is currently unknown.
