Sky will show the majority of games – 64 in total.  Of those games, 25 will be made free-to-air – online and on Freeview via the broadcaster’s Pick channel.

BBC Sport will air 4 games – the first time they have shown live Premier League matches.

You will also be able to watch another 4 games free through Amazon Prime. Fans will not need a Prime membership to watch those fixtures.
