What is Premier League Tonight and why do you have to watch it?

'If you're a football fan and you've not seen Premier League Tonight before you have to get involved!' That's how Jake Humphrey summed up a ‘show like no other’ when he sat down with BTSport.com.

The Premier League makes a roaring return to BT Sport this weekend with new boys Wolverhampton Wanderers welcoming Everton for Saturday’s late game.

Coverage of our match from the opening round of the season is exclusively live on BT Sport 1 and in 4K UHD from 5pm and leads into our football review show Premier League Tonight.

Presenter Jake Humphrey sat down with BTSport.com this week to explain what the show is all about to those that have not seen it and divulge a few details about what loyal fans can expect this campaign.

Jake will be joined by former Wolves manager Mick McCarthy, Martin Keown and Steve McManaman from 8pm this Saturday, with current Wanderers goalkeeper John Ruddy also appearing on the show.

We'll be catching up with Jake ahead of each show this season - read the first column now - and you can keep across his thoughts on the week's hot topics, as well as watching clips or previous episodes, right here!

“Premier League Tonight is a football show like no other on television,” said Humphrey.

“It’s evolved over the last two seasons, because when we first came on air the idea was to review the day’s action but then we started to find these brilliant moments with our pundits.

“It could be a conversation about the struggles of England’s ‘golden generation’ or Martin Keown explaining how Arsene Wenger would play Tina Turner’s Simply the Best to the Arsenal squad ahead of matches!

“We’ve also had Harry Redknapp sharing some amazing stories of life as a football manager and Steven Gerrard outlining what it takes to be the best on the training ground.”

The show combines the star-studded panel often looking back at their careers in a light-hearted way but also tackling some of the key issues in the sport.

BT Sport’s array of pundits will join Jake throughout the season, as well as a number of special guests - including current Premier League stars with the likes of Watford captain Troy Deeney and Stoke goalkeeper Jack Butland both making appearances last season.

Now in its third season, Premier League Tonight follows on from our live Saturday evening game all season long but during that time on air the show has changed somewhat.

Humphrey added: “We evolved from talking about the day’s football to actually discussing the topics that no other show on TV seems to find the time to do.

“It gives pundits the opportunity to talk about issues in the game and it doesn’t matter what topic we’re talking about it’s just real honesty and openness, which means we see pundits in a way on Premier League Tonight that we don’t anywhere else.

“If you’re a football fan and you’ve not seen Premier League Tonight before, you have to get involved this season!

“It’s fascinating for me as a presenter because I just get to ask the questions I’ve always wanted to have answered by legends of the game and the plan this year is to make the show even more about the lives our pundits have led.”
