Looking at the fixtures for next season it seems likely Talksport will get commentary for LIverpool V Man Utd (in week 3) and the Manchester derby (in week 5) as these will surely be 1.30 kick-offs on Sky. It's possible this might occur more regularly now as the Premier League might try and avoid these fixtures before Champions League weeks as Sky don't have the 12.45 slot (but can use a few picks there in emergencies); if the matches aren't before Champions League then Sunday 1.30 is the most obvious slot although if the midweek after is completely free then there's a chance for Mon 20.00 which would suit 5 Live (not applicable to these fixtures though.)

Manchester United V Chelsea in week 2 is most likely to go to 5 Live as either a Sun 16.00 or Mon 20.00 match, although it's possible Sky might want to launch their new Sat 17.30 regular slot by placing a massive game there early on.
