How you can watch the Premier League

The English Premier League returns to SBS this season with highly anticipated Manchester United v Manchester City on September 10 at 9:00pm (AEST) headlining a blockbuster opening five weeks to the season.

The Manchester Derby is building as the biggest Premier League match in recent memory, combining both local and personal rivalries.

The match will be the first competitive meeting between long-time adversaries Jose Mourinho and Pep Guardiola since 2013 and will also feature a derby debut for Manchester United's star striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

City and United are the early favourites for the title, and the derby - LIVE, free and in HD - could prove pivotal in the race for glory.

SBS will kick-off its Premier League coverage with the opening match of the season on August 13 at 9:00pm (AEST) as newly promoted Hull City host defending champions Leicester City.

The Foxes captivated the sporting world with their fairytale title success last season after making an incredible turnaround from battling relegation twelve months earlier.
