Liverpool have the chance to kick-start their stuttering Barclays Premier League campaign against struggling QPR this weekend, live on Sky Sports.

Brendan Rodgers' side were magnificent in the 2013-14 campaign - narrowly missing out on the title to Manchester City - but they have blown hot and cold so far in 2014-15.

The loss of goal machine Luis Suarez has hit Liverpool hard, while a number of the new signings have yet to fully settle at Anfield.

But with QPR currently lying bottom of the table, with just four points from seven games, this is an opportunity for Liverpool to find their best form.

Harry Redknapp's Hoops have just a solitary win to their name so far, a 1-0 victory over Sunderland back in August.

And as such, Liverpool fans will be hopeful their side can pick up three points on Sunday's trip to Loftus Road, which is for a 1:30pm kick-off.

QPR are desperate for points, as they look to avoid a second relegation in three years.

It might be too early in the season to start writing off the west London side, but Rangers have showed little so far to suggest they will put a run of results together.

A win against a Liverpool side would no doubt breed confidence for the strugglers.

Sky Sports subscribers have another game to look forward to on Sunday afternoon, as Swansea City travel north to take on Stoke City in a 4pm kick-off.

The Welsh side have started brightly this season, picking up 11 points in their first five outings, chalking up wins against Manchester United, Burnley and West Brom.

However, the Swans have gone off the boil a little since their dazzling August - during which they registered maximum points.

Gary Monk's men have just two draws to show for their last four games, and as such, will be eager to get back on track against 16th place Stoke.

Mark Hughes' side have eight points from their first seven games, having struggled to find any real consistency so far.

There have been glimpses of brilliance - such as in the away win at Manchester City - but also moments of crushing disappointment, like the 1-0 home defeat to newly-promoted Leicester City.

In short, anything could happen in this game -  there could be a 0-0 stalemate or a 4-3 thriller to look forward to.

The third televised game on Sky Sports is on Monday night between West Brom and Manchester United at the Hawthorns (kick-off 8pm).

United have clawed their way back up the table after an uninspiring start, with Louis van Gaal's new-look side impressing more in recent outings against Everton and West Ham.

The Red Devils now sit fourth with 11 points, just three behind their local rivals Manchester City.

West Brom are a further three points back in 14th, but could draw level with Man United with a home win on Monday.
