arsenal v spurs

A north London derby between Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur is the main event for football fans on Sky Sports this weekend.

Arsenal are unbeaten in five Barclays Premier League outings this season, however the Gunners have struggled to see off opponents so far.

Arsene Wenger's side have chalked up three draws already, but showed glimpses of their best form in a 3-0 win away at Aston Villa last time out.

Arsenal will fancy their chances at home to a Spurs side that have struggled to find any momentum this campaign.

Mauricio Pochettino's men started with two wins, but have claimed just one point in their last three outings.

A 1-0 defeat at home to West Brom - who were bottom of the league prior to the game - has put Spurs under pressure ahead of this weekend's big game.

But anything can happen in a local derby, and Tottenham fans will be hopeful of causing an upset at the Emirates on Saturday (September 27th) in this 5:30pm kick-off.

Sky Sports subscribers have two other Barclays Premier League games to look forward to over the weekend, starting with West Brom v Burnley on Sunday September 28th (kick-off 4pm).

Alan Irvine's Baggies will hope their victory at White Hart Lane is a sign of better things to come, after a slow start to the season.

But Burnley are desperate for a boost, having picked up just three points in their first five games back in the top flight.

Sean Dyche's men have been impressive at the back, keeping clean sheets in their last three outings.

But the problems have been all too evident at the other end of the field, with the Clarets failing to register a league goal since Monday August 18th.

The newly-promoted side remain winless in 2014-15, but the trip to the Hawthorns will be seen as an opportunity to get up and running.

Sky Sports viewers can also look forward to Monday night football, as the TV cameras head to Stoke City for their clash against Newcastle United.

Stoke have failed to build on their magnificent win at Manchester City a couple of weeks back, having lost to Leicester City and drawn with QPR since then.

Mark Hughes will be eager for his side to get back on track against a struggling Newcastle United side, who sit bottom of the pile with just three points from five games.

The Geordies will go into this 8pm kick-off with a little more confidence, having come from 2-0 down against Hull City to pick up a point.

But a win can't come soon enough for Newcastle, with significant pressure on Newcastle boss Alan Pardew ahead of this one.
