The reigning Barclays Premier League champions Manchester City are in televised action on Sky Sports this weekend, in one of three live top-flight games.

Manuel Pellegrini's side travel south to take on struggling QPR, for a 5:30pm kick-off on Saturday November 8th.

qpr vs man city

Man City overcame local rivals Manchester United in their last outing, clinging on for a 1-0 win against a 10-man Red Devils.

However, another under-par City performance may have fans worried, particularly with Chelsea looking so impressive at the top.

The Blues already have a six-point gap over the 2013-14 champions, and City will not want to fall any further behind.

QPR were the latest side to run into an in-form Chelsea, going down 2-1 at Stamford Bridge despite a delightful flicked goal from Charlie Austin.

The Hoops - who have seven points from ten games - are off the bottom of the Barclays Premier League table, but need a run of results to pull themselves back into the main pack.

Harry Redknapp's side have shown signs of promise in recent weeks, but Manchester City will still go into this Loftus Road clash as the overwhelming favourites.

Sky Sports subscribers have two more top-flight games to look forward to on Sunday November 9th: West Brom v Newcastle United and Swansea City v Arsenal.

Alan Pardew's Newcastle travel to the Hawthorns as one of the league's in-form sides - a remarkable turnaround on just three weeks ago.

A 1-0 win over Liverpool last weekend followed victories over Spurs and Leicester City in the league - and let's not forget the recent Capital One Cup win at Manchester City.

Newcastle are up to 12th in the table with 13 points from ten games - the same record as Alan Irvine's West Brom, who sit 11th courtesy of their better goal difference.

The Baggies have been a little inconsistent so far in 2014-15, but crucially, they are scoring goals - and this means they are capable of beating anyone on their day.

A 1-0 win away at Leicester City last time out means Albion are unbeaten in three league outings.

Sunday's second Barclays Premier League fixture sees fourth-place Arsenal travel to sixth-place Swansea City - two sides separated by just two points in the table.

The Gunners saw off bottom side Burnley 3-0 at the Emirates at the weekend, while the Swans were held to a goaless draw at Everton.

A win for Arsenal on their trip to south Wales could help consolidate their place in the European spots, but Swansea will be hopeful of picking up at least a point.

The game, which kicks off at 4pm at the Liberty Stadium, will be shown live on Sky Sports 1.
