Chelsea can virtually seal the Barclays Premier League title this Sunday by seeing off nearest rivals Arsenal, in a game to be shown live on Sky Sports.

Jose Mourinho's side are ten points clear of their north London rivals, with just 18 still to play for in the last six games.

A win for the Blues will not seal the championship mathematically, but Chelsea would be out of sight barring the most unlikely sequence of results over the final weeks of the season.

Arsene Wenger's Arsenal will be eager to keep their winning league run going, and in doing so, make Chelsea work a little harder for the 2014-15 crown.

A win for the Gunners would put a little more pressure on Chelsea, while keeping them ahead of the chasing pack in second place.

Arsenal v Chelsea is live on Sky Sports 1 at 4pm on Sunday April 26th.

The two other Barclays Premier League games on Sky Sports this weekend feature the Manchester sides.

Man City are up first in the Saturday evening kick-off, at 5:30pm against FA Cup finalists Aston Villa.

Manuel Pellegrini's side have spent much of the campaign chasing the title, but a recent slip in form means the Blues have fallen to fourth in the table.

A 2-0 victory against West Ham last time out has consolidated City's place in the UEFA Champions League spots for 2015-16, although fifth-place Liverpool have a game in hand.

Aston Villa seem to be a match for anybody under Tim Sherwood, as Liverpool found out at Wembley on Sunday.

The resurgent Midlands side are scoring goals again and playing with confidence, which makes them a dangerous proposition for a City side in need of points.

Sunday's 1:30pm kick-off sees third-place Manchester United travel to mid-table Everton, who sit 12th with little to play for.

United are only a point behind Arsenal in the table, and will be eager to overtake the Gunners to strike a psychological blow for next season.

Roberto Martinez's Toffees will also have one eye on 2015-16, as they look to finish an underwhelming campaign in the right way.
