It’s all on the line in the Premier League with crucial fixtures to come, while UEFA football 2022 also resumes in February with the return of the Champions League and Europa League to our screens.
Premier League action is taking a short sabbatical this weekend while giving non-European sides a chance to catch up in World Cup qualifying.
However, it is now a long time before he comes back strong.
A nearly full midweek schedule will be broadcast exclusively live on BT Sport with all 18 Premier League teams in action over three days from February 8-10.
A week later, the action continues on BT Sport with the return of the UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League.
Manchester City, finalists defeated last year, is the first English club in action. They will face Sporting Lisbon in Portugal on February 15. A day later, 2019 winners Liverpool travel to Italy to take on Inter Milan.
The following week, Chelsea, champions of the tournament, welcome Lille, then, on February 23, Manchester United faces Atlético de Madrid of Diego Simeone.
Though West Ham are now the only remaining English team in the UEFA Europa League. They join the competition in the round of 16.
Meanwhile, Scottish champions Rangers face the unenviable task of Erling Haaland and company when they take on Borussia Dortmund.
