Sky Sports subscribers have four Barclays Premier League fixtures to look forward to at the weekend, including a mouth-watering clash between Manchester United and Chelsea.

Sunday's game at Old Trafford - which kicks off at 4pm on Sky Sports 1 - will give some indication as to how Louis van Gaal's rebuilding process is going.

Chelsea have been the team to beat so far in 2014-15 - opening up a sizeable gap at the top already - and will fancy their chances of turning United over.

The Red Devils drew 2-2 with West Brom on Monday night, while Chelsea maintained their good form with a 2-1 away win at Selhurst Park.

A win would be huge for United - both from a confidence perspective, and in terms of keeping in the mix for an all-important UEFA Champions League place for next season.

But what about the other live games on Sky Sports this weekend?

Swansea City take on Leicester City in the Saturday tea-time kick-off (5:30pm), hoping to get back on-track following their 2-1 defeat at Stoke City.

Nigel Pearson's Leicester were disappointed to lose 1-0 on their trip to Newcastle United, and will target at least a point at the Liberty Stadium.

The first of Sunday's televised games sees Everton travel to east Lancashire to take on Burnley at 1:30pm.

Roberto Martinez's Toffees saw off Aston Villa easily last weekend - winning 3-0 at Goodison Park - and they will look to build on this result against the recently-promoted Clarets.

Burnley - who are kept off the bottom of the Barclays Premier League by goal difference alone - lost again last time out at home to West Ham.

Sky Sports viewers can also look forward to a Monday night fixture as QPR - the only side below Burnley at present - welcome Aston Villa to Loftus Road for an 8pm kick-off.

Paul Lambert's Villans started the season superbly, but results have turned in recent weeks. They have lost four in a row in the league and, as such, will be eager to secure three points against a struggling Rangers side.

The Hoops scored a last-minute equaliser against Liverpool last Sunday, only to concede a late own goal moments later - a hammer blow to a side already low on confidence.
