Sky has revealed its line-up of shows and pundits, ahead of the new Premier League season. The schedule includes new shows, new presenters and new experts, including the return of Gary Neville.

This season, Sky Sports will show 126 Premier League matches, including 26 first picks, but the games themselves are just part of what you'll be able to watch.

On Friday, coverage starts with Friday Football Club. That sees hosts Max Rushden, Paul Merson, Rachel Riley and various guests from the football world discuss and predict the weekend's upcoming matches.

That's followed by Friday Night Football - live coverage of Friday fixtures. Sky will show 10 Friday evening fixtures this season, with coverage fronted by Jeff Stelling and Rachel Riley.

On Saturday at 10am, Soccer AM will feature a mix of amusing features, interviews with sports and TV stars, and special guests.

The main event on Saturday starts at 11.30am, with Premier League Live. As the name implies, this slot of matches kicks off the day's football proper. It's presented by Simon Thomas, with a who's who of experts and pundits to provide analysis and commentary.

Soccer Saturday will also guide viewers through Saturday's matches, and will have the live scores at 3pm. Jeff Stelling hosts, with Charlie Nicholas, Phil Thompson, Paul Merson and Matt Le Tissier on panellist duty.

In the evening, at 8.30pm, you can watch Game of the Day, which sees Hayley McQueen present coverage of one of the day's best matches. Then, at 10.30pm McQueen will be joined by a guest to take a close look at one of the other key matches.

On Sunday, Neil Ashton and a panel of sports writers will gather to discuss the biggest stories in the Premier League on Sunday Supplement.

Then, Goals on Sunday will see Chris Kamara, Ben Shephard and various pundits take a look at the weekend's action so far.

Live coverage that day starts with Super Sunday. David Jones will present back to back coverage of two of the biggest matches of the weekend.

Finally, the next day, there's even more live coverage on Monday Night Football, again fronted by David Jones. He's joined by Jamie Carragher and some of Sky Sports' sizable army of pundits.

Gary Hughes, head of Sky Sports said: "It's Sky Sports' biggest ever Premier League season and our viewers can enjoy the best matches, the best analysis and the best shows. Following Leicester City's incredible triumph, we all know anything can happen this season and Sky Sports viewers can watch all the stories unfold at both ends of the table from next month through to May."
