Barclays Premier League champions Manchester City’s home tie against Sunderland and Chelsea’s trip to London rivals Tottenham Hotspur make up a riveting New Year’s Day double header to launch BT Sport into January.

The two Barclays Premier League matches are the focal point of an action-packed start to a schedule of exclusively live English football matches on BT Sport during the month – four in the Barclays Premier League and at least six in the 3rd and 4th rounds of The FA Cup.

Later in the month, BT Sport will show exclusively live coverage of Sunderland’s home game against Liverpool, last season’s dramatic runners up. The channels also have the intriguing North East meeting between Hull City and a resurgent Newcastle United exclusively live on January 31.

Simon Green, head of BT Sport, said: “January is a great month to be a BT Sport viewer if you want to indulge in a feast of English football. We will be showing some superb clashes in the Barclays Premier League, starting with the current champions and followed by Chelsea, the early leaders this season.

“Then the focus switches to the third round of The FA Cup when the big guns from the Premier League join the competition. During the month, we will have six exclusively live matches from The FA Cup, plus replays.”
