Why is there no Premier League football on TV this weekend?

Short of club football to watch? Blame the new UEFA Nations League – at least England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland are still live on TV


There’s no Premier League football this weekend due to an international break. In previous seasons, September has featured a raft of friendly international matches but this year it’s the inaugural UEFA Nations League, which adds a competitive edge to proceedings.


Northern Ireland, England, Wales and Scotland are all involved – you can see details of their games and where to watch them below.
