BT Sport announces live Premier League games in February

17th December 2018

BT Sport will open the New Year with a packed schedule of live sport that includes newly-confirmed exclusively live Premier League action in February, alongside the Emirates FA Cup and the return of the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League.

BT Sport's selection of live Premier League games in February sees three of the current top four - Manchester City, Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur - all feature, alongside Cardiff City, Bournemouth, Brighton & Hove Albion, Burnley, Everton and West Ham United.

Headlining BT Sport's live February Premier League coverage is the midweek clash between Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur on February 27.

Opening BT Sport's live February Premier League coverage is Cardiff City entertaining Bournemouth on  February 2. The second weekend of February (February 9) sees the BT Sport cameras at the Amex Stadium as Brighton & Hove Albion host Burnley.

The Clarets, who recently beat Brighton in the Premier League, will face a confident Seagulls side who now sit thirteenth in the table.

On February 23, Manchester City face the challenging task of an away clash at Everton following a Premier League break for the Emirates FA Cup Fifth Round. Everton who are currently eighth in the table are rejuvenated under new manager Marco Silva and have posted a number of notable home wins against City in recent years.

Pep Guardiola's title-chasers line up on BT Sport with their intriguing home clash on Tuesday, February 26 against West Ham United, now managed by former Sky Blues boss Manuel Pellegrini. The Irons have steadied after an indifferent start to the season and by the time of this clash will expect under Pellegrini to be established within the top 10.

This is followed on Wednesday, February 27 by the thrilling London derby Chelsea v Tottenham Hotspur.

Bruce Cuthbert, director, commercial customers, BT Sport, said: "The opening phase of 2019 on BT Sport is set to pull in the crowds.
