| Last updated
Well, this is a great way to kick off the month of December. It has been announced that Jeff Stelling will return to our TV screens on December 6 to host an exciting new Premier League show.
The 68-year-old presenter, who said goodbye to Sky Sports in the summer after more than 25 years in the Soccer Saturday hot seat, has been relatively quiet since his departure.
But on Wednesday evening, Stelling will host Amazon Prime's latest show Every Game, Every Goal – a programme that will show "all the goals and key moments from every game as soon as they go in."
There will be six games in total, including Sheffield United vs Liverpool, Aston Villa vs Manchester City and Manchester United vs Chelsea.
As well as next week's coverage, Hartlepool's biggest fan will join the streaming service's broadcast team for a total of 20 live and exclusive Premier League matches. So who else will feature?
Stelling will be supported by the likes of Tim Sherwood, Dion Dublin, Siobhan Chamberlain and Nedum Onuoha on analysis duties.
And the Prime Video team have confirmed that Thierry Henry, Alan Shearer and Patrice Evra will return to their coverage as pundits alongside Michael Owen, Eni Aluko, Stuart Pearce, Roberto Martinez and Jermain Defoe.
In regards to the presenting and commentary team, Ally McCoist will return alongside Clive Tyldesley, Gabby Logan, Jon Champion, Robyn Cowen, Jim Rosenthal and Guy Mowbray.
Dan Walker, who presented Football Focus and BBC Breakfast in recent years, will also host a number of top-flight fixtures.

Back in May, an emotional Jeff Stelling presented Gillette Labs Soccer Special for the final time alongside pundits Paul Merson, Clinton Morrison, Kris Boyd, Michael Dawson and Sue Smith.
Sky paid tribute to their departing presenter with a touching compilation video of some of his best bits and, after the video had finished, those in the studio gave Stelling a standing ovation.
"It is now the right time to move on and give Sky Sports viewers a break from my relentless rants, bad gags and over the top celebrations of Hartlepool United goals," he said back in April. "It's been a lot of fun - for me at least!"
