While January is rarely a favourite month for pub and club operators, we’ve got enough football to warm the coldest of nights.
In the first few weeks of the year we’ll be bringing you the champions of England against the champions of Europe, EL Clasico on BT Sport for the first time ever, plus even more Premier League action with a host of rearranged fixtures.
Here’s what’s coming up in the next few weeks.
Man City vs Chelsea
Saturday 15th January, 12.30pm
This battle of the Blues sees a repeat of last season’s UEFA Champions League Final. It was Thomas Tuchel’s side who came out on top on that occasion but they’ve struggled to keep pace with the City winning machine in the league in recent weeks. Can they knock the champs off course? Find out in an unmissable Saturday lunchtime encounter.
Watford vs Burnley
Tuesday 18th January, 7.45pm
With Covid playing havoc with the fixture list, we’ve got a lot of catching up to do. We kick off the first of four rearranged Premier League games at Vicarage Road. Both sides are scrapping for survival which will add to the intensity of this classic six-pointer.
Brighton vs Chelsea
Tuesday 18th January, 8pm
Chelsea head from Manchester to Sussex by the sea for a meeting with the Seagulls. This match has been rescheduled from February due to Chelsea’s involvement in the Club World Cup. It will be a second meeting in just a few weeks between the sides after a Danny Welbeck header secured Brighton a point at Stamford Bridge in December.
Leicester vs Spurs
Wednesday 19th January, 7.30pm
While neither of these have quite hit the heights fans may have hoped for at the start of the season, they are well in range of the European places. Injuries and illness have not helped their causes but this is set to be an intriguing midweek match-up.
Brentford vs Man Utd
Wednesday 19th January, 8pm
The Brentford Community Stadium sounds welcoming enough but not everyone has had comfortable visits there – just ask Liverpool and Arsenal. This is another potentially tricky night for Ronaldo & Co as they settle into the Ralf Rangnick era.
Everton vs Aston Villa
Saturday 22nd January, 12.30pm
Everton fans are to be ‘treated’ to the curious sight of their greatest rivals’ 2005 Champions League winning manager and captain in opposite dugouts at Goodison Park. That will of course matter little to fans of either side, who will just be focused on the pitch, the players, and the points.
Spanish Super Cup
Real Madrid vs Barcelona
Wednesday 12th January, 7pm
Atletico vs Athletic Bilbao
Thursday 13th January, 7pm
Sunday January 16, 7pm
It’s arguably the biggest football rivalry on the planet, and it’s coming live to you via BT Sport.
We’ve got all the games in the new format of the Spanish Super Cup live from Saudi Arabia.
The tournament features the winners and runners-up of La Liga and the Copa del Rey in a knockout competition.
It kicks off with Barca versus Real on Wednesday night and culminates with the first chance of silverware in the calendar year on Sunday.
And there’s plenty more football coming up, including the start of the
