No Premier League team is televised more often through to mid-November than Tottenham, but TNT Sports hate West Ham and the evidence is clear to see.

Sky Sports and TNT Sports have chosen their TV games for the first half of November. And they still don’t seem to realise Bournemouth, Burnley and Fulham actually exist.


Spurs – ten games
Sky Sports – Manchester United (h), Arsenal (a), Liverpool (h), Brentford (a), Fulham (h), Crystal Palace (a), Chelsea (h)

TNT Sports – Bournemouth (a), Luton (a), Wolves (a)

Honestly, Harry Kane might have been holding Spurs back. No Premier League team is on TV more often in the first three and a half months than Ange’s boys and it is little wonder.


Chelsea – nine games
Sky Sports – Liverpool (h), West Ham (a), Luton (h), Bournemouth (a), Fulham (a), Arsenal (h), Spurs (a), Manchester City (h)

TNT Sports – Brentford (h)

Todd Boehly’s transfer daftness has proven irresistible for those hoping to grab the attention of any channel-hoppers wondering precisely who is making their Blues debut this week.


Newcastle – nine games
Sky Sports – Aston Villa (h), Liverpool (h), Brighton (a), Brentford (h), Sheffield United (a), Wolves (a), Arsenal (h), Bournemouth (a)

TNT Sports – Manchester City (a)

After having six of their first seven Premier League games picked for broadcast, the TV execs have cooled interest in their new favourite plaything Newcastle ever so slightly by choosing to show only one of their three October matches – and one in the first half of November.


Arsenal – eight games
Sky Sports – Crystal Palace (a), Manchester United (h), Everton (a), Spurs (h), Manchester City (h), Chelsea (a), Newcastle (a)

TNT Sports – Nottingham Forest (h)

Arsenal helped christen TNT Sports with an edgy win over Nottingham Forest, but the Gunners are otherwise stationed fairly frequently on a revamped Sky.

Liverpool – seven games
Sky Sports – Chelsea (a), Newcastle (a), Spurs (a), Brighton (a), Luton (a)

TNT Sports – Wolves (a), Everton (h)

All but one of Liverpool’s televised games so far being away – and the other being a lunchtime Merseyside derby – is the kind of thing Jurgen Klopp will forget about and not take out on Des Kelly. Just don’t ask him about lunchtime kick-offs.


Manchester United – seven games
Sky Sports – Wolves (h), Spurs (a), Arsenal (a), Sheffield United (a), Manchester City (h)

TNT Sports – Burnley (a), Fulham (a)

The first months of the Premier League season are not an early-round FA Cup tie so Manchester United are not a) perennially at home or b) permanently on the box.


Everton – six games
Sky Sports – Aston Villa (a), Arsenal (h), Brentford (a), West Ham (a)

TNT Sports – Sheffield United (a), Liverpool (a)

Impressive forward-thinking to save all the Goodison boos for later in the season when it properly starts to matter.

Manchester City – six games
Sky Sports – Burnley (a), Sheffield United (a), Arsenal (a), Manchester United (a), Chelsea (a)

TNT Sports – Newcastle (h)

Treble winners they may be, Manchester City clearly don’t pull in enough of an armchair audience. And depending on your allegiance, that will be ammunition for some sort of social media argument.


Nottingham Forest – six games
Sky Sports – Burnley (h), Brentford (h), Crystal Palace (a), Aston Villa (h), West Ham (a)

TNT Sports – Arsenal (a)

Those lucky Forest sods will be shown on consecutive October and November weekends.


West Ham – six games
Sky Sports – Chelsea (h), Brighton (a), Luton (a), Aston Villa (a), Everton (h), Nottingham Forest (h)

The TNT Sports bias against David Moyes’ Champions League hopefuls is real.


Aston Villa – five games
Sky Sports – Newcastle (a), Everton (h), West Ham (h), Nottingham Forest (a)

TNT Sports – Brighton (h)

Unai Emery will hope his players don’t wilt in front of the camera again this season quite like they did against Newcastle; hammering Everton the following week was a good sign.

Brentford – five games
Sky Sports – Spurs (h), Newcastle (a), Everton (h), Nottingham Forest (a)

TNT Sports – Chelsea (a)

A decent spread from the Bees; a bus stop in Hounslow has no right to be this high on such a list, level with European champions and the like.


Wolves – five games
Sky Sports – Manchester United (a), Crystal Palace (a), Newcastle (h)

TNT Sports – Liverpool (h), Spurs (h)

Gary O’Neil will hope that no more referees feel the pressure of a TV audience when adjudging whether a goalkeeper clattering into a couple of opponents constitutes a foul.


Brighton – four games
Sky Sports – West Ham (h), Newcastle (h), Liverpool (h)

TNT Sports – Aston Villa (a)

There is a particularly European flavour when it comes to Brighton’s selection.


Crystal Palace – four games
Sky Sports – Arsenal (h), Wolves (h), Nottingham Forest (h), Spurs (h)

Roy Hodgson won’t welcome an 8pm Monday kick-off against the Gunners, nor a start at the same time at home to Spurs a few Fridays later, but at least Songs of Praise will be finished by the time they face Wolves at 2pm on that early September Sunday.


Luton – four games
Sky Sports – Chelsea (a), West Ham (h), Liverpool (h)

TNT Sports – Tottenham (h)

Some big hitters for any armchair Luton fans to sample – and plenty of away fans who will enjoy that entrance.


Sheffield United – four games
Sky Sports – Manchester City (h), Newcastle (h), Manchester United (h)

TNT Sports – Everton (h)

There is no appetite to have the Blades seen on their travels. Shame.


Bournemouth – three games
Sky Sports – Chelsea (h), Newcastle (h)

TNT Sports – Spurs (h)

Welcome to the Premier League, big Spanish Tone.


Burnley – three games
Sky Sports – Manchester City (h), Nottingham Forest (a)

TNT Sports – Manchester United (a)

The Vincent Kompany revolution will largely not be televised at all.


Fulham – three games
Sky Sports – Chelsea (h), Spurs (a)

TNT Sports – Manchester United (h)

Those bloody poor Fulham fans will have to wait until Monday, October 2 – seven weeks into the season – for a chance to see their side on the box. And even then it’s against a team a stone’s throw away. But it’s fine because they’re on twice in October, and Spurs is basically halfway across the country, with Manchester United visiting on Bonfire weekend.
