ESPN begin their coverage with defending champions Chelsea taking on newly-promoted West Bromwich Albion. The fixture will see former Chelsea player Roberto Di Matteo make his Barclays Premier League managerial debut as his West Brom team travel to Stamford Bridge in the hope of causing an opening day upset.
In August, ESPN’s handpicked selection of exclusively live matches include Championship winners Newcastle United as they host Martin O’Neill’s Aston Villa, and renewing old rivalries, Avram Grant takes his new side, West Ham United, to Old Trafford as they visit Manchester United.
