The matches involving Champions League winners Chelsea and Barclays Premier League champions Manchester City will open the new campaign live on television.

The Blues' visit to Wigan on Sunday, August 19 (kick-off 1.30pm) will be the first of 42 top-flight games to be screened by Sky Sports between the start of the season and November, the broadcaster has confirmed.

They will be closely followed by City, who host promoted Southampton later the same day (kick-off 4pm), with Manchester United in action against Everton at Goodison Park the following evening.
