chelsea vs palace

Chelsea can seal the 2014-15 Barclays Premier League title live on Sky Sports this Sunday May 3rd, when they welcome Crystal Palace to Stamford Bridge.

A win against the Eagles on home turf would put the Blues out of sight, and guarantee the club's first championship since Jose Mourinho's return as manager.

Chelsea last won the title in the 2009-10 season, when they broke the Barclays Premier League scoring record with 103 goals.

The match - which kicks off at 1:30pm - gives Crystal Palace the chance to restore some pride after disappointing 2-0 defeats to Hull City and West Brom in their last two outings.

The Eagles are virtually safe from relegation already, and barring a freakish set of results will ply their trade in the top division next season.

Chelsea v Crystal Palace is just one of four live Barclays Premier League games on Sky Sports this weekend.

The action gets underway on Saturday evening as fourth-place Manchester United welcome West Brom to Old Trafford for a 5:30pm kick-off.

Successive defeats against Everton and Chelsea have left the Red Devils stuck on 65 points, two behind Manchester City and Arsenal on 67.

But all three clubs are set to finish in the UEFA Champions League spots for next season, with fifth-place Liverpool lagging behind on 58 points.

Tony Pulis' Baggies side look safe in 13th with 37 points, seven above the relegation zone. However, all the sides in the lower half of the table will be wary of Leicester City and Hull City's respective upturns in recent weeks.

So Albion will be eager to take something away from their trip to the Theatre of Dreams, where they famously claimed a 2-1 win over David Moyes' United in September 2013.

Sky Sports subscribers can also look forward to Tottenham Hotspur v Manchester City this Sunday, live from White Hart Lane (kick-off 4pm).

Spurs are level on points with Liverpool following their 2-2 draw with Southampton on Saturday lunchtime.

Man City beat Aston Villa 3-2 last time out, to record back-to-back wins for the first time since mid-February. Manuel Pellegrini's side need to finish strong as the Chilean looks to keep hold of his job for next season.

The Monday night fixture sees in-form Hull City host Arsenal at the KC Stadium at 8pm.

Wins for the Tigers against Crystal Palace and Liverpool have vastly improved their chances of beating the drop.

And with Arsenal's long winning run having ended with a 0-0 draw at home to Chelsea on Sunday, Steve Bruce's side might just fancy causing another upset.
