Barclays Premier League football returns to BT Sport this weekend as third-place Arsenal take on fifth-place Liverpool at the Emirates Stadium.

The home side were in a rich vein of form prior to the international break, winning six consecutive games to soar into the top three.

The Gunners are now just one point behind Manchester City in second and could yet prove to be Chelsea's closest challengers for the title come May.

Liverpool have also picked up plenty of points of late, having improved significantly from the start of the season. A good run of results has moved the Reds into the UEFA Europa League places, although a 2-1 home defeat to Manchester United last time out halted their progress.

When these sides last met, in December at Anfield, a late Martin Skrtel's equaliser seven minutes into stoppage time salvaged a 2-2 draw for Liverpool.

Both Arsene Wenger and Brendan Rodgers will be desperate for three points, knowing there is still plenty to play for in the 2014-15 season.

The game kicks off at 12:45pm on Saturday April 4th, live on BT Sport 1.

With it being Easter weekend, there are plenty more games to look forward to between the Friday and Monday bank holidays.

The action gets underway with a Hyundai A-League clash between Western Sydney Wanderers and Melbourne City at 9:40am on Friday morning, before Forest Green Rovers face Aldershot Town in the Vanarama Conference at 4:30pm.
