Sky Sports subscribers have three live Barclays Premier League games to look forward to this weekend, including Liverpool v Manchester United.

These two north-west giants have been among the form sides in the country in the last few months, after experiencing their own respective slow starts in 2014-15.

Both sides have re-entered the race for European football next season, with the highly-coveted UEFA Champions League spots still up for grabs.

Fifth-place Liverpool are just one place and two points behind United in fourth, meaning Brendan Rodgers' side could leapfrog their opponents with three points at Anfield.

However, if Louis van Gaal's men win, they could rise as high as second in the table depending on how Manchester City and Arsenal fare at the weekend.

There is always plenty of drama when the Reds meet the Red Devils, and Sky Sports viewers can watch this one unfold at 1:30pm on Sunday March 22nd.

Straight after this game, at 4pm, the leaders Chelsea take on struggling Hull at the KC Stadium.

Despite being the away side, Jose Mourinho's men - who are currently six points clear at the top - start as the clear favourites on their trip to East Yorkshire.

Hull boss Steve Bruce recently signed a contract extension with the Tigers, who sit 15th three points clear of the relegation zone.

A 0-0 draw with bottom club Leicester last time out summed up their season - solid enough defensively but rather limited in attack.

An early Chelsea goal could make things difficult for the home side, who need points on the board as they look to stay out of trouble.

Before Sunday's Barclays Premier League double-header, there's a Saturday tea-time clash between West Ham United and Sunderland to look forward to (kick-off 5:30pm).

The away side's 4-0 home defeat to Aston Villa last week proved to be the final nail in manager Gus Poyet's coffin - he was sacked earlier in the week.

Former Rangers boss Dick Advocaat has taken charge at the Stadium of Light until the end of the season, and he certainly has a job on his hands.

The Black Cats have slipped to 17th and are now just one point clear of the bottom three, so an improvement in form is needed quickly, starting with this trip to Upton Park.

West Ham have had troubles of their own in recent weeks, after enjoying such a fine first half of the season.

The Hammers have taken just three points from the last 21 available, putting to bed any hopes they had of playing European football in 2015-16.

Sam Allardyce's men lie 10th in the table, 15th points behind the top five and 14 clear of the drop zone, meaning they have little but pride to play for.
