Barclays Premier League leaders Chelsea are in action on Sky Sports this weekend, as they take on another of the fancied sides - Arsenal.

Chelsea have enjoyed a fine start to the 2014-15 campaign, dropping just two points in their first six games.

A 3-0 win at home to Aston Villa at the weekend ensured the Blues opened up a five-point gap at the top of the table, with Southampton their nearest challengers on 13 points.

Arsenal - who drew 1-1 with rivals Spurs in their most recent outing - are a further three behind on ten points from six games.

Arsene Wenger's men will hope to avoid a repeat of the result in this fixture last year, when Chelsea ran riot in a 6-0 victory.

The match made national headlines after Arsenal full-back Kieran Gibbs was sent off in a case of mistaken identity, having taken the blame for team mate Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's goal-line handball.

Sky Sports subscribers have two other games to look forward to at the weekend, starting with Aston Villa v Manchester City at 5:30pm on Saturday October 4th.

The Villans enjoyed a great start to the season, claiming ten points in their first five games, but the 3-0 loss at Chelsea may have burst their bubble.

Paul Lambert's side face an equally difficult game this weekend, as the Barclays Premier League champions head to Villa Park.

Third-place Man City won 4-2 away at Hull City last time out, with man-of-the-moment Frank Lampard getting his name on the scoresheet once again.

Manuel Pellegrini's City side have seven points from a maximum of nine on the road so far this season, however they had a draining UEFA Champions League fixture against Roma to negotiate before the trip to the West Midlands.

The third live game on Sky Sports this weekend is another London derby: West Ham United v Queens Park Rangers.

Both sides were on the receiving end of 2-1 defeats last weekend, with the Hammers losing away to Manchester United and QPR beaten by high-flying Southampton.

West Ham currently lie 12th in the table with seven points from six games, three more than Harry Redknapp's Hoops, who sit in the relegation zone.

The match kicks off at Upton Park at 4:15pm on Sunday October 5th.
