After presiding over his first victory in charge of West Brom on Saturday, Sam Allardyce’s side face West Ham at the London Stadium on Tuesday in the first of three midweek Premier League offerings.

Hopes of an immediate upturn in form under the former England boss were dampened after a relatively meagre start to his tenure at The Hawthorns, but their hopes of a great escape were boosted after a thrilling 3-2 win over Wolves in the Black Country derby.

Their next assignment will see them take on West Ham who have won their last three matches and are unbeaten in five. Successive league wins have moved David Moyes’ side to ninth in the table, while the Baggies remain nineteenth.

Both Manchester clubs are in action on Wednesday beginning with Pep Guardiola’s side who welcome Aston Villa to the Etihad Stadium.

City moved up to second in the table with a comprehensive win over Crystal Palace at the weekend and look to be timing their title charge perfectly. Villa, meanwhile, haven’t played a league game since New Year’s Day due to a significant Covid-19 outbreak.

Later that evening, Man United travel to Craven Cottage to take on Fulham days after earning a point against champions Liverpool. Will Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s league leaders get back to winning ways?

In an added bonus, BT Sport subscribers can watch the conclusion of the FA Cup third round on Tuesday as Premier League Southampton host League One Shrewsbury.

The tie was originally scheduled to take place on Saturday 9 January, but was postponed due to a Covid-19 outbreak at the EFL club.

Shrewsbury boss Steve Cotterill will miss the match as he continues his recovery in hospital, but the stakes couldn’t be higher on the pitch with the winners set to host Arsenal in the fourth round.

The Shrews are yet to play this year due to the scale of the outbreak, but they were enjoying a fine run of form before the break, winning four of their last five league matches.

Southampton have impressed under Ralph Hasenhüttl this season and the Austrian, who has instilled a coherent identity at St Mary’s, will be viewing the FA Cup as genuine opportunity to win silverware.

Will we see another famous third-round upset on BT Sport? Or will the Saints have too much for an undercooked Shrewsbury?

Every match from the Bundesliga will be exclusively live on BT Sport on Tuesday and Wednesday, including Bayern’s trip to Augsburg and a tantalising match-up between Bayer Leverkusen and Borussia Dortmund.

The action begins at Borussia-Park on Tuesday where eighth-placed Borussia Monchengladbach host Werder Bremen and continues with Hertha Berlin v Hoffenheim, Mainz v Wolfsburg and the must-see clash between Leverkusen and Dortmund.

Peter Bosz’s Leverkusen occupy third-place but they have won only one in six and lost last time out at Union Berlin. Dortmund, who would leapfrog Bayer with a win, could only manage a 1-1 draw at home to Mainz on Saturday.

We have five more matches on Wednesday, including Christian Gross’ rock-bottom Schalke v Cologne, Arminia Bielefeld v Stuttgart and Freiburg v Eintracht Frankfurt.

Table-toppers Bayern also visit Augsburg and second-placed Leipzig host Union Berlin.

Hansi Flick’s side bounced back from a surprise 3-2 defeat to Gladbach with a win against Freiburg and will be looking to continue their inexorable march towards a ninth consecutive league title with a win, while Leipzig will be desperate to stay hot on their heels against an impressive Union side.

Juventus and Napoli meet in the 33rd Supercoppa Italiana – an annual match that pits the previous season’s Serie A champions against the Coppa Italia winners – in Reggio Emilia on Wednesday.

Juventus, who lost in the final against Lazio last term, have won the Supercoppa eight times and lost seven in their 15 attempts, while Napoli have won two of their three appearances so far.

Andrea Pirlo’s side have struggled for consistency in Serie A this season and they were beaten 2-0 by title rivals Inter Milan at the weekend, leaving them fifth in the table.

Napoli, on the other hand, have won their last three matches and they thrashed Fiorentina 6-0 on Sunday to move up to third, six points behind AC Milan and Inter.

Both sides now shift focus to the Supercoppa and with Cristiano Ronaldo, Lorenzo Insigne and co set to face off in the winner-takes-all showpiece, it is shaping up to be an unmissable encounter in northern Italy.

We’ve got even more Italian football this week, with two Coppa Italia last 16 matches exclusively live.

First up, Roma host Spezia on Tuesday looking to bounce back from a galling 3-0 derby defeat to Lazio against the surprise packages from Liguria.

Morale is high for Vincenzo Italiano’s side who have picked up seven points from a possible nine in their last three matches and they will be eyeing a famous cup upset at Stadio Olimpico.

On Thursday, Lazio look to make it four wins from four in all competitions against struggling Parma.

Simone Inzaghi’s side are firm favourites against a Parma side occupy 19th-place in Serie A and have only won two league matches all season.
