Liverpool clash with Manchester United tops Sky Sports’ October coverage

Premier League fans are in for a treat during October and November as Sky Sports screens seven big head-to-heads between last season’s top six over the two months.

Sky Sports Premier League will show 22 matches from England’s top tier, with Liverpool’s clash against Manchester United on Saturday October 14 the standout fixture.

Fans can expect fireworks on November 5 as Super Sunday will showcase Chelsea v United and Manchester City v Arsenal.

Elsewhere, Sky Sports will televise three key games involving Tottenham Hotspur, including matches against United, Liverpool and the north London derby against Arsenal.

Sky Sports’ Head of Football Gary Hughes said: “With 20 more exclusively live matches, the Sky Sports Premier League channel will continue to follow every team in depth like never before.

“From The Debate and Premier League Prediction shows to Soccer AM, Gillette Soccer Saturday and more – fans will get the whole story.”

Last season’s fixtures between the top seven produced some interesting statistics.

Chelsea lost just five league games all season on their way to the title, but four of those came against teams in the top seven.

Liverpool went through the campaign without losing against a top seven side, but their record of P26 W15 D5 L6 against the other 13 teams left them a distant fourth in the table.
