Tottenham Hotspur v Liverpool is the big game on Sky Sports this weekend - one of three live Barclays Premier League matches for viewers to look forward to.

Mauricio Pochettino's Spurs sit top of the table after wins in their first two games of the season - against London rivals West Ham United and QPR.

Last year's runners-up Liverpool - who signed a trio of players from Pochettino's former club Southampton in the summer - have both won and lost one so far this season.

The Reds got their 2014-15 campaign off to the perfect start with a 2-1 win against the Saints on opening day, but found champions Manchester City too hot to handle on Monday night.

With both Spurs and Liverpool harbouring hopes of a title challenge this season, this Sunday lunchtime clash (kick off 1:30pm on August 31st) will offer insight into how the two clubs may fare.

Liverpool's new £16 million signing Mario Balotelli could make his debut at White Hart Lane, having completed his move from AC Milan.

Sky Sports viewers have two other games to look forward to this weekend, starting with Chelsea's trip to Everton (kick-off 5:30pm on Saturday August 30th).

Both sides are expected to do well in the Barclays Premier League this season, having recruited well over the close-season.

Chelsea have a 100 per cent record so far - having seen off the recently promoted Burnley and Leicester City - while Everton have begun with a pair of 2-2 draws.

Nigel Pearson's Leicester are in action themselves on Sunday, as they welcome Arsenal to the King Power Stadium (kick-off 4pm).

The Foxes will have to shrug off a shock defeat to League 2 Shrewsbury Town in the second round of the Capital One Cup as they prepare to take on the Gunners at the weekend.

Arsène Wenger's ever-competitive Arsenal - who have started with a win and a draw in the league this season - will prey on any weakness shown by the 2013-14 Sky Bet Championship winners.
