Sunderland v Liverpool is the live Barclays Premier League game on BT Sport this weekend, and the centrepiece of the football action.

The Black Cats host the Reds in a Saturday (January 10th) lunch-time kick-off at the Stadium of Light (kick-off 12:45pm).

Both sides are desperate for points, with Liverpool trying to re-enter the race for a European spot in 2015-16 and Sunderland aiming to pull away from the bottom three.

Brendan Rodgers' Liverpool currently lie eighth in the table with 29 points from 20 games, some way down on their return at the same stage last season.

They picked up eight points from a possible 12 over the busy festive season, beating Swansea City (4-1) and Burnley (1-0) and drawing 2-2 with both Leicester City and Arsenal.

Gus Poyet's Sunderland are a further nine points behind their opponents in 14th, with 20 points from the same number of games.

They collected four points in the Christmas and New Year fixtures, with the solitary win coming against local rivals Newcastle (1-0) away at St James' Park.

Following this game, the Wearside outfit lost 3-1 at home to Hull City, drew 0-0 with Aston Villa and were beaten 3-2 by Manchester City.

Sunderland have often proved difficult to break down this season, but have struggled to penetrate opposition defences. With Liverpool lacking the firepower they enjoyed in the 2013-14 campaign, this one could go either way.

BT Sport subscribers have plenty of other football action to look forward to over the weekend, including top-flight matches from Italy, France and Scotland.

Torino v AC Milan gets the Serie A programme underway at 7:45pm on Saturday evening, with Inter Milan v Genoa following at 11:30am on Sunday morning.

Roma v Lazio is live on BT Sport at 2pm, before Napoli face Juventus in the late kick-off at 7:45pm.

The two Ligue 1 games live on BT Sport this Sunday are Nantes v FC Metz at 4pm and Monaco v Bordeaux at 8pm.

Then, on Monday evening, BT Sport viewers can enjoy a live game from the Scottish Premiership, as Hamilton Academical host Dundee United at New Douglas Park.

The Accies are having a fantastic season, and are currently in the European places, keeping pace with fellow title contenders Aberdeen and Celtic.

Dundee United are only a point further behind, and can leapfrog their hosts with a win. With both sides playing their part in the most open Scottish title race in years, this is one not to miss.
