Rivalries old and new line-up in an action-packed month of televised live sport in March.

The battle of the top four Premier League football teams hots up when the most historically trophy-laden pairing clash, as Manchester United meet Liverpool in front of Sky Sports cameras. While Chelsea and Tottenham contest an ever-feisty fixture at Stamford Bridge.

With tension between British world heavyweight champ Anthony Joshua and New Zealand’s Joseph Parker set for boiling point at Cardiff later this month, pubs have a huge chance to cash in on the UK’s fastest growing pub spectator sport.

Finally, Lewis Hamilton, the most successful Brit in F1 history, attempts to defend his world title on Sky’s dedicated channel as the F1 season gets under way in the Australian city of Melbourne.

Here’s a guide to all the action across Sky channels – and terrestrial TV – this month.
