Football fans have four Barclays Premier League matches to look forward to this weekend on Sky Sports, starting with an intriguing clash between Manchester City and Everton.

The Saturday tea-time game at 5:30pm on December 6th gives Manuel Pellegrini's side the chance to consolidate second place in the table and chase down the leaders Chelsea.

A 3-0 win at Southampton on Sunday saw City leapfrog the Saints in the table, and the Blues followed this up with a resounding 4-1 win at Sunderland on Wednesday night.

Everton were also in action on Sunday afternoon, going down 2-1 to Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane, before a frustrating 1-1 draw at home to Hull in midweek.

Roberto Martinez's side sit 11th in the table at present with 18 points from their first 14 games, having struggled for consistency so far.

There are two more Barclays Premier League matches for Sky Sports viewers to look forward to on Sunday December 7th, starting with West Ham United v Swansea City at 1:30pm.

The home side have enjoyed a fine start to the season under Sam Allardyce, having added fresh attacking talent in the summer.

A 1-0 win over in-form Newcastle United and a 2-1 victory at West Brom in the last week has ensured the Hammers remain ahead of Arsenal, Liverpool and Spurs in the hunt for a UEFA Europa League place.

However, seventh-place Swansea - who drew 1-1 with Crystal Palace at the weekend and beat QPR 2-0 on Tuesday - have also impressed this season and will provide stern opposition.

Straight after this game, Sky Sports viewers can see Aston Villa take on Leicester City (kick-off 4pm) in a battle between two of the Barclays Premier League strugglers.

The home side should go into this one with greater confidence following their 1-0 win at Crystal Palace, which came on the back of a 1-1 draw with Burnley.

Nigel Pearson's Leicester can't buy three points from anywhere - their last victory was the memorable 5-3 win against Manchester United on September 21st.

The Foxes lost 3-2 to QPR on Saturday, before a 3-1 home defeat to Liverpool on Tuesday night.

On Monday December 8th, Sky Sports viewers can see how a resurgent Manchester United fare against Southampton (kick-off 8pm).

Having enjoyed a fine start to the season, the Saints have lost their last two matches - going down 3-0 at home to Manchester City at the weekend before a narrow 1-0 defeat to Arsenal.

Louis van Gaal's improving side will look to twist the knife, as the Red Devils chase a fifth consecutive Barclays Premier League win.

Victories over Hull City (3-0) and Stoke City (2-1) in the last week mean United are now just one point behind third-place Southampton.

Another win on Monday night - live on Sky Sports - could propel them back into the title race.
