The first Super Sunday of the new Premier League season takes place today and it’s all change on Sky Sports.
The show is now sponsored by Nissan ending a 24 year partnership between Sky and Ford. The US automotive giant had sponsored Sky’s coverage of the Premier League since the inception of the competition in 1992.
Today’s programme starts at 12.30pm on Sky Sports 1, where Bournemouth host José Mourinho’s Manchester United at the Vitality Stadium.
Bournemouth are unbeaten in their last four home meetings with Manchester United in all competitions, including a 2-1 Premier League win in 2015-16.
Then coverage switches to the Emirates Stadium, where Arsenal host Liverpool.
The Gunners were genuine title contenders for much of last season, but eventually finished second, 10 points behind surprise winners Leicester City.
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has overseen his first pre-season at the club, and will be hoping to improve on his side’s eighth-placed finish last time out.
Highlights of both matches will be shown on BBC’s Match of the Day 2 from 10.30pm on BBC One.
The final Premier League fixture of the opening weekend takes place on Monday evening on Sky Sports 1, as Chelsea host West Ham United.
