Sky Sports subscribers have a Merseyside derby to look forward to this weekend, plus a Barclays Premier League triple-header on Sunday.

Local rivals Everton and Liverpool meet at Goodison Park in a tea-time clash on Saturday February 7th, live at 5:30pm on Sky Sports 1.

Both the Blues and Reds won last time out in the league, with Everton winning 1-0 away at Crystal Palace and Liverpool seeing off West Ham 2-0 at Anfield.

Roberto Martinez's Toffees now sit 12th in the table with 26 points, 12 behind Brendan Rodgers Reds, who lie in seventh with 38 points.

When the two clubs met earlier in the season, a late Phil Jagielka screamer salvaged a point for Everton in a 1-1 draw. Up until injury time, it had seemed as if Steven Gerrard's second-half free-kick would give Liverpool the three points.

These Merseyside derbies are always hotly contested, and very often see a bucketload of goals. As such, this is one not to miss.

Sky Sports will show three Barclays Premier League games back-to-back this Sunday February 8th, starting with a 12pm kick-off between Burnley and West Bromwich Albion.

Both sides are desperate for points as the fight for top-flight survival intensifies, with the Clarets and the Baggies hovering just above the drop zone.

Sean Dyche's Burnley - who lost 2-0 at Sunderland in their most recent fixture - are just one place and one point above the relegation places, in 17th with 20 points.

And Tony Pulis' WBA - beaten 3-0 at home by Spurs at the weekend - are only two spots and two points better off, currently lying in 15th with 22 points.

Both teams have shown signs of improvement in recent weeks, and could yet pull away from the bottom end of the table. Three points in this one would make a huge difference to their prospects.

Straight after the opening Sunday afternoon game, Sky Sports viewers can watch Newcastle United take on Stoke City at St. James Park.

This is a battle between tenth and eleventh in the table - two sides looking to keep well clear of the relegation battle.

John Carver claimed his first victory as Newcastle caretaker manager last weekend, overseeing his side's 3-0 destruction of struggling Hull City.

Mark Hughes' Stoke also scored three last time out, with a Jonathan Walters hat-trick ensuring a 3-1 win against QPR.

Sky Sports viewers can see which way this mid-table clash goes at 2:05pm live on Sky Sports 1.

Rounding off the action at 4:15pm is West Ham United v Manchester United at Upton Park.

The home side enjoyed a fantastic start to the season under Sam Allardyce, however the Hammers have started to slip away from the European race.

Defeat at Liverpool last weekend saw the East Londoners slip to eighth in the table, seven points behind Sunday's opponents.

Louis van Gaal's United lie third in the table, ten points behind the league leaders Chelsea, following their 3-1 home win against Leicester City.
