The Sky Sports Show has been revamped.

The new Premier League season begins with Arsenal hosting Leicester City at the Emirates, and it'll be the first time the top flight campaign has started on a Friday night.

The match will be broadcast live on Sky's Friday Night Football, which has a new host for the upcoming season. Kelly Cates will present the show, and will be joined by Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher for the first fixture of the season.

Jeff Stelling and Rachel Riley hosted Friday Night Football last season.

However, Riley quit the show after an incident back in May. She was subjected to online abuse after labelling Tottenham Hotspur's 1-0 loss to West Ham a "bottle job", and decided to move on to other roles.

Stelling remains with Sky, presenting Soccer Saturday.

Cates has worked as a presenter for BBC and Channel 5 and will also host Sky's EFL coverage this season.

She will also be one of the presenters for The Debate, Sky's new nightly show featuring pundits discussing the latest talking points in football.
