BT Sport reveals exclusively live April Premier League matches
Manchester City’s critical game against Southampton is one of three Barclays Premier League matches to be shown on BT Sport in April.
City, who are close on the heels of Chelsea and Arsenal, will be hoping for three points but Southampton, under Mauricio Pochettino, have proved to be tricky opposition this season. In fact, they took a point off City in December when Dani Osvaldo scored a sensational equaliser for the Saints.
Everton will also face the Saints in April, another match that will feature exclusively live on BT Sport. Roberto Martinez’s Toffees have had a strong season and will be seeking three vital points in the hope of a top four finish.
Fifth placed Spurs are one of the teams battling with Everton for that coveted fourth place and the chance to qualify for the UEFA Champions League. They will also feature live on BT Sport in April when they take on Fulham at White Hart Lane in a London derby.
That match will be of huge importance to Fulham who are bottom of the league and in danger of being relegated from the Premier League for the first time since 2001.
Simon Green, head of BT Sport, said: “BT Sport continues to show great live action from the Barclays Premier League. We showed matches involving Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United in February, we’ll show Chelsea v Arsenal exclusively live in March and we are delighted that Manchester City, Spurs and Everton will now take their turn in April.
“BT Sport will also be showing one of the FA Cup semi-finals in April as well as the exciting closing stages of the Bundesliga, Serie A and the French Ligue1. We are also the new exclusive home of Moto GP and so there is plenty of action to keep fans happy at BT Sport.”
