Four of the Barclays Premier League's top five teams are in action on Sky Sports this weekend, as the 2013-14 season heads towards a thrilling climax.

Any one of three sides can still win the title, with Chelsea just two points behind the leaders Liverpool, and Manchester City - a point further back - able to go top if they win their game in hand.

Meanwhile, the race for the final UEFA Champions League spot is still alive, with Everton looking to close a four-point gap to fourth-placed? Arsenal over the last two weekends.

However, the Toffees have an extremely difficult task - not only do they have to rely on Arsenal dropping points, but they need to see off Manchester City this Saturday (May 2nd).

The game, which kicks off at 5:30pm, is one of three to be broadcast live on Sky Sports this weekend.

Man City know that with their superior goal difference, the Barclays Premier League title is now theirs for the taking - all they have to do is win their last three games.

Yet Everton have been a force to be reckoned with under Roberto Martinez this season, and there are far easier away fixtures in the top-flight than at Goodison Park.

A draw or defeat for Man City puts Liverpool back in the driving seat, as the Reds have winnable games against Crystal Palace and Newcastle United coming up.

Chelsea - who are relying on both of their title rivals slipping up - can crank the pressure up on Liverpool and Man City with a heavy win against Norwich City.

Their game, to be played at Stamford Bridge, is live on Sky Sports at 4pm on Sunday May 3rd.

Norwich are desperate for points themselves having fallen into the relegation zone, and will no doubt scrap for every ball.

But Chelsea will fancy their chances of seeing off the struggling Canaries and ensuring the title race continues until the final day of the season.

As for Arsenal, one win from their final two games will be enough to secure UEFA Champions League football for next season.

The Gunners will hope to get the job done live on Sky Sports against West Bromwich Albion on Sunday (kick-off 1:30pm).

A 1-0 win for Pepe Mel's Baggies against West Ham on Saturday has eased their relegation fears, although they are one of eight teams still to confirm their Barclays Premier League participation for next year.
