Sky Sports subscribers have four Barclays Premier League matches to look forward to on live TV this weekend, including a mouthwatering clash between Manchester City and Arsenal.

This Sunday afternoon fixture is crucial for both sides, with the Blues trying to keep pace with Chelsea at the top and the Gunners eager to secure a UEFA Champions League spot for next season.

City are two points behind the leaders going into this weekend's games, and with Chelsea facing a difficult away trip to Swansea City, there could be a change at the top.

Arsenal currently sit fifth in the table with 36 points, one behind Manchester United in fourth. Arsene Wenger's side, who beat Stoke 3-0 last time out, drew 2-2 with Man City in the sides' previous clash back in September.

However, before the big game kicks off at 4pm on January 18th, there are two other Barclays Premier League matches to look forward to on Sky Sports.

The weekend's action gets underway at 5:30pm on Saturday at St. James' Park, where Newcastle United host this season's surprise package, Southampton.

The Saints recorded an excellent 1-0 win away at Old Trafford at the weekend, ensuring they stayed third in the table ahead of Man United.

Meanwhile, Newcastle lost to Chelsea, going down 2-0 at Stamford Bridge after missing a host of first-half chances.

Next up is West Ham United v Hull City, which kicks off at 1:30pm on Sunday.

West Ham, who have drawn 1-1 in their last three outings, have slipped to seventh in the table, having gone four games without a league win.

They will be eager to claim three points against relegation-threatened Hull, who have an injury crisis. Both Nikica Jelavic and Abel Hernandez limped off in their 1-0 defeat at West Brom, leaving the Tigers short of options in attack.

Sky Sports viewers can also look forward to a Monday Night Football clash between Everton and West Brom at Goodison Park, which kicks off at 8pm on January 19th.

The Toffees, who sit 12th in the table, have claimed just one point from the last 15 available, however Roberto Martinez's side will be encouraged by a fightback in their 1-1 draw with Man City last Saturday.

Tony Pulis' West Brom sit a further point behind Everton, having claimed a much-needed win against Hull at the Hawthorns last week.
