Barclays Premier League football switches to Sunday lunchtime on BT Sport this weekend, with two stuttering giants meeting in a crunch game at White Hart Lane.

Both Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United will be desperate for three points, as they aim to kick-start their respective seasons.

Spurs have been toothless in front of goal so far during 2012-13, registering just nine league goals in their first 12 games.

A number of clean sheets have helped keep André Villas-Boas' side in and around the European places, however the dam burst at the weekend with a 6-0 thumping away at Manchester City.

Not only was this Spurs' heaviest defeat in 17 years, but it was the third consecutive league game in which they failed to score.

But Manchester United have their own problems. The perennial title challengers appear to be suffering the long-feared hangover following Sir Alex Ferguson's departure as manager.

New boss David Moyes has attempted to stamp his mark on the Old Trafford side, but amid huge expectation, a number of misfiring stars are not helping his cause.

The latest setback for the Red Devils was a last-minute Cardiff equaliser on Sunday, which meant another two points dropped for the defending champions.

Like Tottenham, United sit outside the European places after a dozen games - unfamiliar territory for the 20-time league winners.

BT Sport viewers can enjoy the action from White Hart Lane live on BT Sport at 1pm on Sunday December 1st.

Viewers have a host of other matches to look forward to this weekend, including top games from Germany, Italy and France.

The Bundesliga action kicks off on Friday November 29th, when Hamburg travel to Wolfsburg for a 7:30pm kick-off, and continues on Saturday November 30th with Schalke 04 v VFB Stuttgart at 5:30pm.

BT Sport is airing four games from Serie A over the weekend, starting with Genoa v Torino on Saturday at 7:45pm. An Italian triple-header on Sunday will see Catania v AC Milan (11:30pm), Inter Milan v Sampdoria (2pm) and Juventus v Udinese (7:45pm) all broadcast live.

From Ligue 1, Bastia v Evian TG is live at 4pm on Sunday, before title-chasing PSG play host to Lyon at 8pm.
