Your guide to a huge weekend of sport and how to watch it all

Brought to you by NOW.

There is another big weekend of sporting action coming up.


There is some incredible sport on this weekend, with six Premier League games available to stream, including a huge match between bitter rivals Manchester United and Liverpool. Meanwhile, some of the biggest names from the world of MMA take to the Octagon at UFC 278.

Here is how to stream all of this weekend's sporting action with a NOW Sports and Sports Extra Membership.

Saturday, August 20.


The weekend's Premier League round of fixtures begins with Tottenham Hotspur versus Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Spurs have registered four points so far and rescued a late draw against rivals Chelsea last weekend. Antonio Conte's side could be dark horses to win the Premier League this season and will be favourites for Saturday's game. Wolves, meanwhile, are searching for their first win of the campaign.

You can stream Tottenham versus Wolves with a NOW Sports Extra Membership. Kick-off is at 12:30 pm.


Next up, Everton face Nottingham Forest at Goodison Park.

Everton are yet to win a match so far this season, and this already looks like a must-win game against potential relegation rivals. Newly-promoted Nottingham Forest come into the match after beating West Ham at the City Ground last weekend, their first win in the Premier League since 1999.

In the final Premier League game of the day, Bournemouth host Arsenal.

The Gunners have made a perfect start to the season, scoring six goals in two impressive victories. Bournemouth, meanwhile, face another difficult task after losing 4-0 to Manchester City last weekend.

In the early hours of Sunday morning, you can stream UFC 278.

The main event is a UFC Welterweight Championship fight between Kamaru Usman, the defending champion, and Leon Edwards. The bout is a long-awaited rematch. The pair last faced each other in December 2015 and Usman won via unanimous decision.

Elsewhere on the card, Paulo Costa faces Luke Rockhold in a middleweight bout. And Jose Aldo takes on Merab Dvalishvili in the bantamweight division.

Leeds United take on Chelsea at Elland Road in the first of Sunday's live Premier League games.

Leeds have performed above expectation so far this season, earning four points from two matches. Chelsea, meanwhile, were excellent against Tottenham last weekend but had to settle for a draw after Harry Kane's late goal.

Manchester City then travel to play Newcastle United at St James Park.

Pep Guardiola's team are one of only two teams with a perfect record in the Premier League so far this season, and come into the game having scored six goals in two games. Man City are yet to concede a goal in the current campaign but will be tested against Newcastle who have earned four points from two games so far this season.

Monday, August 22.

The final Premier League game in this round of fixtures takes place on Monday night at Old Trafford, with Manchester United hosting Liverpool.

Both sides are looking for their first win of the campaign after difficult starts to the season. Man United are bottom of the table after losing both of their games so far to Brighton and Brentford respectively.

Liverpool, meanwhile, failed to beat Fulham and Crystal Palace and have dropped four points already in their title challenge. The Reds, however, strolled to victory in this fixture last season, beating Man United 5-0.

Jurgen Klopp's team will be hoping for a similar result on Monday night. Man United, however, know they cannot allow another collapse against their bitter rivals.

You can stream Man United versus Liverpool with a NOW Sports Membership. Kick-off is at 8 pm, with coverage of Monday Night Football beginning at 6:30 pm.
