The Barclays Premier League leaders Chelsea are in action this Saturday (November 9th) as they travel to Liverpool for a 12:45pm kick-off.

Jose Mourinho's impressive side have 13 points from the last 15 possible, remaining unbeaten in the league after ten games.

Fans are already wondering whether the Blues could emulate the achievement of Arsenal's 'Invincibles' from 2003-04 by avoiding defeat all season.

However, Brendan Rodgers' Liverpool side hope to have something to say about that, by kick-starting their own campaign with a win at Anfield.

The Reds - so impressive as league runners-up last season - suffered another loss at the weekend, going down 1-0 to a revitalised Newcastle United.

Liverpool currently lie in seventh place after ten games, already 12 points behind Chelsea in the table and showing few signs of narrowing the gap.

When the sides met in 2013-14, it was the Blues who came out on top - winning 2-1 at Stamford Bridge in December and 2-0 at Anfield in April.

The latter result had a huge bearing on the destination of the Barclays Premier League crown, with Liverpool ultimately finishing just two points behind the eventual champions Manchester City.

BT Sport subscribers have plenty of other games to look forward to at the weekend, starting with a Hyundai A-League clash between Newcastle Jets and Melbourne Victory at 6am on Saturday.

Werder Bremen v VFB Stuttgart is live at 5:30pm from the Bundesliga, before Caen v Nantes from France's Ligue 1 (7pm) and Sampdoria v AC Milan from Serie A (7:45pm).

Sunday morning starts with another Australian match-up at 6am - Central Coast Mariners v Perth Glory - before the first of four Serie A clashes: Cagliari v Genoa at 11:30am:

The other televised games from Italy's top-flight on Sunday are Juventus v Parma at 2pm, Fiorentina v Napoli at 5pm and Roma v Torino at 7:45pm.

One of the highlights of the weekend is an FA Cup first-round clash between FC Halifax Town and Bradford City - clubs separated by two divisions but just eight miles in distance.

The West Yorkshire derby kicks off at 12pm at The Shay, with Vanarama Conference high-flyers Halifax hoping to cause an upset against their local rivals.

The European action continues a German double-header - Wolfsburg v Hamburg is at 2:30pm, followed by Borussia Dortmund v Borussia Monchengladbach at 4:30pm.

PSG v Marseille from Ligue 1 is live at 8pm, with Estoril v FC Porto from Portugal's Primeira Liga kicking off 15 minutes later on BT Sport Extra.
