southampton v chelsea

Sky Sports viewers have another massive weekend of Barclays Premier League football to look forward to, with four games set to air live on the pay-TV platform.

Six of the top seven sides are in action over the weekend, including the current leaders Chelsea and their closest challengers Manchester City.

It's Manuel Pellegrini's side who get things underway on Saturday evening (March 14th), as they make the short trip into East Lancashire to take on struggling Burnley at 5:30pm.

Both sides are desperate for points, with Man City already five points behind Chelsea having played a game more, and Sean Dyche's Clarets deep in relegation trouble.

Turf Moor is never the easiest place to go however, so City will have to earn the points against a spirited, hard-working Burnley side.

The first of Sunday's games (kick-off 1:30pm) sees Chelsea host seventh-place Southampton at Stamford Bridge.

The Saints have struggled to keep pace with the top sides in recent weeks, having held a UEFA Champions League spot during the early part of the season.

But Ronald Koeman's side claimed an important three points against Crystal Palace in their last outing and are still only one point off the top six.

A win for Chelsea will consolidate their lead at the top of the Barclays Premier League, with the luxury of a game in hand still to play.

In the second half of Ford Super Sunday, Manchester United host Tottenham Hotspur at Old Trafford in a 4pm kick-off.

The Red Devils currently lie fourth, just three points ahead of sixth-place Spurs, who have a red-hot Harry Kane to call upon.

A win for the away side could see Louis van Gaal's side slide out of the European places, particularly if Liverpool bag the points at Swansea City on Monday night.

The Reds' trip to South Wales, which kicks off at 8pm, is also being broadcast live on Sky Sports.

The home side will be looking to get back on track following their 3-2 loss to Spurs last week, as the Swans target a top-half finish in 2014-15.

But Liverpool's strong recent form has seen them surge up the table, and re-enter the race for a UEFA Champions League spot next season.
