BT Sport will have a feast of football in March with five exclusively live Barclays Premier League fixtures, starting with Arsenal v Everton, and at least two 6th round FA Cup clashes as the knockout competition reaches its last eight teams.

The channels’ Barclays Premier League games include a tricky midweek away trip to St James’ Park for Louis van Gaal’s Manchester United. BT Sport will also feature current champions Manchester City at home to West Bromwich Albion.

In fact, the Baggies, under new manager Tony Pulis, will be shown twice, including their midweek game away to fierce Midlands rivals Aston Villa.

The line-up also includes an intriguing late season London derby, as Alan Pardew’s Crystal Palace host fellow strugglers QPR in what could potentially be a key relegation survival fight.

Simon Green, head of BT Sport, said: “We have a packed schedule of quality football for March, including a few midweek games as well.

“We will be showing exclusively live Aston Villa v West Bromwich Albion on Tuesday, March 3 and just 24 hours later, we ‘ll have Newcastle United v Manchester United, which will be an opportunity to see how the Magpies’ new manager is finding his feet, whether or not a replacement for caretaker John Carver is in place by then.

“Along with our Barclays Premier League matches, we’ll also have at least two exclusively live games from the 6th round of the FA Cup, when the last eight teams will be playing for a trip to a Wembley semi-final.”
