The selections, made together with the Premier League, are the first of 116 live fixtures on Sky Sports - the most ever in a single season. In the first round of fixtures, Sky Sports viewers can look forward to:

To celebrate the first day of the Premier League season and the new look schedule, Sky Sports is inviting every home in Britain to enjoy a free day of action on Saturday August 17. Sky Sports 1 will replace the regular programming on Sky 2 (on Sky and other pay TV services) and Pick TV (on Freeview and You View) meaning millions of home viewers can enjoy a live Premier League match, a Football League fixture, plus a host of other football shows at no cost.

Jamie Carragher, Liverpool legend and new Sky Sports expert, said: "This is the reason why I chose to join Sky Sports. I wanted to work with the best team on the best line up of live football and that is what we have for the new season. Sky Sports viewers can see all the big stories, more of the massive matches and of course every team at least twice. We've got the action covered and I can't wait to get started."

Barney Francis, managing director of Sky Sports, said: "This is our biggest ever season of Premier League football. When you look at the opening fixtures in black and white, you can see that no other broadcaster comes close to the quality that we offer. Sky Sports will show every match between last season's top four as well as every club at least twice by December. We'll have more than three times as many matches as BT, and our schedule is even stronger than it was last season. With the best team of analysts, a fantastic new weekend schedule and coverage from the Football League, UEFA Champions League, La Liga and the SPL, this is the best ever football season for Sky Sports viewers."

xcellent! Not sure if he is any good as a manager (never thought about it) but the 'headbutt in the technical area' and what he said to Pelligrini were just brilliant, it was as if he was trying to recreate the end of the Alan Partridge Xmas special when Alan punched a man in a wheelchair and verbally abused Tony Heirs.
