Premier League fans have noticed a number of new faces on BT Sport after a shake up to the line-up at the start of the season.
The broadcaster has provided comprehensive coverage of all the season’s talking points. At the top of the table Arsenal are fighting for their first title in nearly 20 years after a reign of Manchester City dominance.
Elsewhere at the lower end of the league fans have been treated to a tense battle as newly promoted sides such as Nottingham Forest and Bournemouth bid to establish themselves in the top-flight.
BT Sport have covered the title race, relegation fight, battle for European football and everything in between.
Here we outline all the pundits that have appeared on BT during an enthralling season of football.
Who is the Premier League host for BT Sport this season?
Jake Humphrey had been the face of BT Sport’s Premier League coverage for nine seasons but he left the programme at the end of last season to pursue other ventures including his High Performance podcast.
The broadcasters switched things up at the start of the season and Lynsey Hipgrave has been the main Premier League presenter this season.
Lynsey Hipgrave wrote on Twitter at the time: “After a weekend of dreams coming true for women in football the dreams of a football-mad geordie lass have also come true. I couldn’t be prouder to be leading BT Sport’s Premier League coverage this season.
Hipgrave, 42, began working on BT Sport in 2013 and has also worked for Eurosport, Discovery+, Talksport and Mola.Sport.
