Televised football in February 2022 – Premier League, Champions League, FA Cup and more

It’s all to play for in the Premier League with some crucial fixtures up ahead, while European football also starts back up again in February as the Champions League and Europa League return to our screens

Premier League action takes a short sabbatical this weekend to give non-European sides an opportunity to catch up on World Cup qualifiers.

It’s now long, however, before it is back with a bang.

A near-full midweek schedule will be broadcast exclusively live on BT Sport with all 18 Premier League teams in action across three days between February 8-10.

One week later, the action continues on BT Sport with the return of the UEFA Champions League and the UEFA Europa League.

Last year’s beaten finalists Manchester City are the first English club in action. They take on Sporting Lisbon in Portugal on February 15. A day later, 2019 winners Liverpool travel to Italy to face Inter Milan.

The following week, tournament holders Chelsea host Lille, and then on February 23, Manchester United face Diego Simeone’s Atletico Madrid.

West Ham are now the only remaining English side left in the UEFA Europa League. They rejoin the competition at the Round of 16 stage.

Scottish champions Rangers, meanwhile, face the unenviable task of Erling Haaland and co when they play Borussia Dortmund.

Klopp’s men are nine adrift but do have a crucial game in hand on The Citizens. The Reds also travel to the Etihad in what may prove to be a crucial title-decider on April 9.

At the foot of the table, Newcastle United are likely to be highly active in the last few days that remain of the January transfer window. The Magpies are now just one point away from safety and Eddie Howe’s men will be hoping to use the crucial victory over Leeds United as a platform between now and the rest of the season.

Dean Smith will be encouraged by Norwich City’s recent run of results, Watford will be hoping for (yet another) new manager bounce with ex-England boss Roy Hodgson now at the helm, while Sean Dyche’s Burnley have as many as four games in hand on some teams around them.

No side is likely to feel 100% safe until the threat of relegation is mathematically impossible. One side that can consider themselves in danger, however, are Everton whose fixture upcoming fixture at St James’ could prove significant. Leeds and Brentford are also still in jeopardy.
