Chelsea, Arsenal, Manchester United and Liverpool are all set to feature prominently in a tantalising football schedule on Sky Sports this April.

A total of 17 live Premier League games will be shown live on the channel during April, with 16 of those featuring teams who are currently in the top six in the league.

Sky customers in Ireland will be able to enjoy two separate fixtures involving sides currently sitting in the top four, as the race for Champions League qualification heats up with the end of the season in sight.

Sky Sports football expert and former Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher summed up the mood of a number of football fans across the country when he suggested:

“It’s going to be an incredible end to an amazing season and I can’t wait. It’s the most important time of the season and Sky Sports is the best place to watch all the drama and excitement between now and the last day.”

Moving to a whole new level

Everton v Arsenal (6th), Liverpool v Manchester City (13th) and Liverpool v Chelsea (27th April) are among the standout fixtures during April.

All of these games, among several others that Sky customers will be able to enjoy, will be crucial in deciding the destination of the title.

With just four points currently separating Chelsea, Arsenal, Manchester City and Liverpool at the top of the table, all four will justifiably feel that they are still firmly in the running for the title.

The numerous key clashes in April are sure to go a long way to eventually sorting out who finishes top of the pile.

The period between 19th – 28th April is likely to be particularly important, with ten matches taking place on Sky Sports over the nine-day period.

An average of four live Premier League matches every weekend during the month will certainly offer football fans the chance to pack as much action into the four weeks as possible.

April certainly looks as though it will take the Sky Sports Premier League coverage to a new level for the 2013/2014 season.
