    BT Sport will show key clashes from the Premier League title race and the hunt for a UEFA Champions League spot this April as the season nears its conclusion.

    Live Premier League games on BT Sport this April:

    • Manchester City v Southampton - Saturday April 5, 12.45pm
    • Tottenham Hotspur v Fulham - Saturday April 19, 12.45pm
    • Southampton v Everton - Saturday April 26, 12.45

    Title-chasers Manchester City kick off April's live action as they entertain Southampton at the Etihad Stadium.

    Manuel Pellegrini’s men currently sit third behind Chelsea and Arsenal in what promises to be a tense title race and three points against Mauricio Pochettino’s Saints could be crucial.

    The contest for fourth place is shaping up to be no less fierce and Tottenham will hope to strengthen their bid for the final Champions League spot when they host Fulham live on BT Sport on Saturday, April 19.

    Felix Magath’s Fulham, meanwhile, are currently in trouble at the other end of the table and could be bidding to steer themselves clear of relegation danger at White Hart Lane.

    Also chasing fourth place this season are Everton, who are in live action on Saturday April 26 when they make the trip to Southampton.

    Roberto Martinez has enjoyed a promising debut season at Goodison Park so far and will be looking to crown it with a spot in Europe.

    Simon Green, head of BT Sport, said: "BT Sport continues to show great live action from the Barclays Premier League. We showed matches involving Arsenal, Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United in February, we’ll show Chelsea v Arsenal exclusively live in March and we are delighted that Manchester City, Spurs and Everton will now take their turn in April.

     "BT Sport will also be showing one of the FA Cup semi-finals in April as well as the exciting closing stages of the Bundesliga, Serie A and the French Ligue1. We are also the new exclusive home of Moto GP and so there is plenty of action to keep fans happy at BT Sport."
