REVEALED: The Amazon Prime pundits and presenters who will be covering YOUR team as they launch their live Premier League coverage tonight... including Nigel de Jong and Dimitar Berbatov (but feuding Michael Owen and Alan Shearer won't be reunited)Amazon will broadcast live Premier League football for first time this weekThe internet shopping giant is branching out into sports broadcastingIt will show every one of the 10 games from this midweek round of fixturesAnd it has splashed out on a dizzying number of high-profile pundits 

Football fans will get their first glimpse of Amazon's live Premier League coverage on Tuesday, but many of the faces on screen will already be very familiar.

The internet shopping giant will broadcast online a full round of midweek fixtures this week - yes, that's every one of the 10 games being played - and to cover its huge offering a host of talent has been recruited.

Among the pundits are Alan Shearer, who is also Match of the Day's lead analyst, Lee Dixon, ever present in ITV's coverage of England games, plus Michael Owen and Peter Crouch, who already appear regularly on BT Sport.

SEE ALL THE AMAZON GAMES FOR FREE! 

Amazon have spent about £90million to screen 20 Premier League matches a season for the next three years and while they are hoping you will sign up to watch for £7.99 a month — or £79 a year. 

But you can see every single game Amazon are showing this season for FREE by signing up for a 30-day free trial.  

They have also teamed up with BT to stream matches to pubs, which will be charged between £100 and £600.

Chairman of the British Pub Confederation, Greg Mulholland, said: 'The cost of subscriptions to Sky Sports is now utterly unaffordable to most pubs and the value they get is nowhere near the cost.

'So I hope the addition of Amazon will finally shake up this market and bring down the cost of showing sport in pubs.' 

Owen and Shearer's inclusion on the same bill will raise eyebrows given their public feud. They traded barbed insults on social media earlier this year after the release of Owen's autobiography reignited a long-running argument that dates back to their time as team-mates at Newcastle a decade ago. The pair have been kept apart by Amazon for this round of fixtures. 

There are other eye-catching names on the roster: Dimitar Berbatov, the maverick former Manchester United and Tottenham striker, has become an outspoken and sometimes x-rated critic on social media, while Nigel de Jong, infamous for his karate kick on Xabi Alonso in the 2010 World Cup final, could be a feisty analyst if his playing days are anything to go by.

Former England women's international Eni Aluko is the pundit most often used, appearing three times, followed by Dixon, Shearer, Roberto Martinez and Les Ferdinand, who will all feature twice this week.

The list of presenters is headed by Eilidh Barbour, Gabby Logan and Darrell Currie, who will all appear twice.

Among the commentators are Clive Tyldesley and Guy Mowbray, who have been the voices of ITV football and Match of the Day for years.

Their co-commentators will include Jermaine Jenas, Andy Townsend, Glenn Hoddle, Chris Waddle and Ally McCoist, who will be reunited with Jon Champion after their partnership during the 2018 World Cup was widely praised for its exuberant, amusing and often eccentric chemistry.

In all there will be a whopping 52 presenters and pundits involved at the individual games, with even more in a studio for the Goals Centre show, including Robbie Savage, Dion Dublin, Tim Sherwood and Joe Cole.
