However, the broadcasters decided on a major shake-up this summer.

And that sees Lynsey Hipgrave take over in Humphrey’s place.

Her first match of the new Premier League season is this coming weekend at Craven Cottage when Fulham host Liverpool.

Other highlights on the channel already confirmed include Everton vs Liverpool and the North London derby.

The Newcastle fan has been doing lots of Europa League coverage in recent seasons – as well as some Ligue 1 too.

She wrote on Twitter: “After a weekend of dreams coming true for women in football the dreams of a football-mad Geordie lass have also come true…

“I couldn’t be any prouder to be leading @btsport’s Premier League coverage this season.

“We KO with Fulham v Liverpool on Saturday at 11.30am BT Sport 1.”

Hipgrave, 42, previously worked with BBC Radio 5 Live and got her sports TV break with Al Jazeera.

She started presenting on BT Sport on 2013 and also does shows for Eurosport, Discovery+, Mola Sport and talkSPORT.

However, Humphrey will continue fronting BT Sport’s Champions League content this season.
