Must watch on TV: The Barclays Premier League returns

A long sports filled weekend awaits as the Barclays Premier League returns to your television sets after an absence of three months.

Following the riots through the week, the Football Association in England cancelled just one fixture; Tottenham's home game against Everton.

A rejuvinated Liverpool start things off for the season when they take on Sunderland at Anfield. Fresh with summer signings  like Stewart Downing, Jordan Henderson, Jose Enrique, Charlie Adam and Doni, the 18 times English champions will be looking forward to start the season with a win.

Sunderland have made some decent signings in the summer too, like John O Shea and Larsson, so this game promises to be a cracker. Catch it Live on ESPN at 19:25 hours.

On STAR Sports at 19:25 hours, Blackburn take on Wolverampton Wanderers.

In the late kickoff on Saturday night, Newcastle United take on Arsenal at 22:00 hours on ESPN.

Arsenal's big name signing, Gervinho may make his debut in this game, but the Gunners could be without their instrumental midfielders Samir Nasri and Cesc Fabregas, as the duo are almost certain to leave the North London club. 

On Sunday, runners up Chelsea make the trip to the Britannia Stadium to take on Stoke City.

Watch the game, Live on ESPN at 17:55 hours.

In the second game on Sunday, champions Manchester United, fresh from their Community Shield triumph take on West Bromich Albion at the Hawthorns. Watch the game Live on ESPN at 20:30 hours.

Further, there's the ongoing Test match between India and England. India seem to be set to register a 3-0 deficit by the end of the third Test match at Edgbaston. Going into day three, the visitors trail England by more than 200 runs, and the hosts have seven wickets in hand. A defeat looks certain, but India's vaunted batting may just respond to save us the Test. Watch all the action on STAR Cricket from 15:30 hours onwards on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
