Leicester facing five in a row televised Sunday matches during title run-in

Barclays Premier League leaders Leicester will be involved in five consecutive televised matches in the title run-in as they bid to be crowned champions.

Claudio Ranieri's side, who hold a two-point advantage over Tottenham and Arsenal heading into the hotly-anticipated finale, will play all of their selected TV games on a Sunday, starting with their home match against Southampton on April 3.

Their ensuing games against Sunderland, West Ham, Swansea and a potentially pivotal fixture at Manchester United on May 2 will all be screened live, after BT Sport and Sky Sports announced their TV schedule on Friday.

Spurs will also feature in four televised games, most notably their mouth-watering fixtures against Liverpool on April 2, Manchester United eight days later, and a derby at Chelsea on May 2. While Arsenal, bidding to win their first league title since 2004, will also be involved in four televised matches.

Manchester City, now six points adrift of Leicester, will also have four matches screened live.
