Fierce rivalry: Pep Guardiola will hope his Manchester City side can beat Manchester United in February

Sky Sports and BT Sport have announced the February Premier League matches that can be shown in the pub.

Following on from the previously announced fixtures for December and January , February begins with a midweek match on BT Sport that sees Pep Guardiola's Manchester City visit West Ham.

The month’s opening weekend of fixtures then pits the blue half of Manchester against Swansea while reigning champions Leicester City take on Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United on Sky Sports. The Saturday lunchtime fixture sees a tantalising London derby between title rivals Chelsea and Arsenal before the evening fixture sees Middlesbrough visit White Hart Lane to play Tottenham Hotspur.

On Saturday 12 February, Arsenal welcome Hull to the Emirates Stadium, while their north London rivals Tottenham travel north to Liverpool for the Saturday evening match. The following day sees Chelsea face a tricky trip to the north-west to face Burnley, while Swansea City entertain Leicester. The set of matches is completed with Manchester City’s trip to the south coast to face Bournemouth for Monday Night Football.

February finishes with a bang as Pep Guardiola’s City side set out to complete a league sweep of rivals United following their 2-1 victory at Old Trafford in September. Elsewhere Tottenham take on Stoke, West Ham travel to Watford and Leicester face Jurgen Klopp's free-scoring, title-chasing Liverpool for Monday Night Football. 

Sky Business managing director David Rey said: "With some huge fixtures lined up for February including Chelsea v Arsenal, another Manchester derby and the EFL Cup Final, there’s plenty of opportunities for landlords to get customers through their doors."
