This week's sport: Midweek Premier League action among the highlights

It's another exciting week of sport, with a full midweek Premier League schedule taking place alongside one-day international cricket, while the Alfred Dunhill Championship is also on the agenda in golf.

There is more domestic and European football to get stuck into across the week too, while there's European rugby union action also on the agenda.

Here are the key events we have picked out, with plenty of them available to follow as part of our Sports Live Streaming and Live Golf Tracker options.

Elsewhere in football, Celta Vigo entertain Cadiz in La Liga, while Atalanta go to Torino in Serie A and both games can be watched via our Sports Live Streaming service.

In the earlier game, Wolves are 17/20 to respond positively to their defeat at the Emirates by beating Burnley at home.
