Jose Mourinho's Chelsea travel north to Newcastle United this Saturday (November 2nd) for this week's televised Barclays Premier League game on BT Sport.

The Blues will be hoping to build on last week's 2-1 win over Manchester City in this 12:45pm kick-off, knowing that three points will take them top of the table.

Chelsea currently sit in second place on 20 points from nine games, two points behind London rivals Arsenal - the side they defeated 2-0 in the Capital One Cup this week.

The Gunners do not play until 5:30pm on Saturday evening - when they welcome Liverpool to the Emirates - giving Chelsea the chance to steal a march.

Alan Pardew's Newcastle suffered a sickening 2-1 defeat to local rivals Sunderland in last week's north-east derby, and will be hoping for an improved performance this time out.

The inconsistent Geordies have struggled to put together a run of results this season, winning just two games back-to-back in the opening three months.

Ahead of this weekend's clash at St James' Park, Newcastle sit in 11th place in the Barclays Premier League table with 11 points from nine games.

BT Sport viewers have a host of other games to look forward to this weekend, including Motherwell v Hibernian in the Scottish Premiership on Sunday November 3rd.

When the sides met on the opening day of the season, Motherwell won 1-0 away at Easter Road thanks to an 83rd minute goal from substitute Henri Anier.

Western Sydney Wanderers v Adelaide United in the Hyundai A-League gets the world action underway at 8:30am on Friday November 1st, with Borussia Dortmund v VFB Stuttgart the evening game from the Bundesliga (kick-off 7:30pm).

There are two more matches from Australia on Saturday morning - Perth Glory v Sydney FC at 6:30am and Newcastle Jets v Central Coast Mariners at 8:45am, both live on BT Sport 2.

Later on, viewers can enjoy two games from Serie A - Parma v Juventus at 5pm and AC Milan v Fiorentina at 7:45pm - or watch Lyon v Guingamp from France's Ligue 1 at 7pm.

Brisbane Roar v Melbourne Heart gets Sunday's action underway at 6am, with two Bundesliga fixtures - FC Augsburg v FSV Mainz 05 (2:30pm) and Werder Bremen v Hannover 96 (4:30pm) following in the afternoon.

Torino v Roma from Serie A is live on BT Sport 1 at 7:45pm, while Lille v Monaco will be broadcast on BT Sport 2 at 8pm.
