Sky Sports will show 16 live Barclays Premier League games during April, as the business end of the football season arrives.

All the title contenders will be in action over the course of the month, as well as the many of the sides threatened by relegation to the second tier.

The action gets underway at Stamford Bridge, where Chelsea host Stoke City in a Saturday teatime clash on April 4th.

The following day (Sunday April 5th) sees Burnley host Tottenham Hotspur (1:30pm) and Sunderland take on Newcastle United (4pm) in the Tyne-Wear derby.

On Monday April 5th, Manchester City travel to Selhurst Park to take on Crystal Palace, in an 8pm kick-off.

There are four more live games the following weekend, including Burnley v Arsenal from Turf Moor at 5:30pm on Saturday April 11th.

On Sunday April 12th, QPR host Chelsea (1:30pm) at Loftus Road, before the Manchester Derby - Man United v Man City - gets underway at Old Trafford at 4pm.

Monday night's game on April 13th is Liverpool v Newcastle United, live from Anfield.

The Saturday evening fixture on April 18th is a huge clash between Chelsea and Manchester United, before Manchester City face West Ham United (1:30pm) and Newcastle host Spurs (4pm) on Sunday 19th.

Monday night's game could have implications at the bottom end of the table, as Aston Villa take on QPR at Villa Park (8pm). Will the two sides still be in and around the drop zone?

The Villans are in action again on Saturday April 25th, away at Manchester City (5:30pm), before Everton v Manchester United (1:30pm) and Arsenal v Chelsea (4pm) are live on Sunday afternoon.

Rounding off April's Barclays Premier League action on Sky Sports is Leicester City v Chelsea on Wednesday 29th at 7:45pm.

Gary Hughes, Sky Sports' Head of Football, said April is "a huge month" in the Barclays Premier League and will go a long way to deciding the destiny of the title.

"Sky Sports will be the only place to see Chelsea and Manchester City, as well as the drama of all of the biggest local derbies and massive head-to-heads," he added.

"[We have] more of the games that matter as the Premier League approaches a thrilling conclusion," Mr Hughes claimed.
