JAKE HUMPHREY has been REPLACED as the presenter of BT Sport's Premier League coverage.
The host has fronted Saturday lunchtime games in recent years with the likes of Rio Ferdinand, Peter Crouch and Joe Cole.
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.

"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."
