Full list of live Premier League fixtures, channel guide and kick-off times



The Premier League title race and top four battle looks like it is going to go down to the wire, illustrated once again this week Arsenal’s shock 4-2 win against Chelsea to equal Tottenham’s point tally and break a three-game losing streak.

And at the top, it has turned into a question of who, if anyone, will blink first between Liverpool or Manchester City: the Reds dismantled Manchester United 4-0 with Mo Salah scoring his first non-penalty since February and City made light work of Brighton, winning 3-0.

No team in the top eight can afford to drop points and six of them will feature on TV this weekend.

Saturday 23 April

Arsenal vs Manchester United

Fifth against sixth. Before Arsenal’s victory on Wednesday, the future looked bleak for Arteta’s squad but a win against the Blues has reignited their top four chances.

And United may be the perfect team to face considering their lack of consistency under Ralf Rangnick.

But Cristiano Ronaldo will be available and Arsenal’s defence has arguably been lacklustre recently, failing to keep a clean sheet in four of the last games, perhaps a result of losing both starting full-backs to injury, an area United may feel they can exploit.

  • Kick-off: 12.30pm
  • TV channel: BT Sport 1
  • Live stream: BT Sport website or app

Brentford vs Spurs

Brentford have won three consecutive games for the first time this season.

Their change in fortunes might be attributed to former Spurs player Christian Eriksen – the Bees have not yet lost a game the Dane has started in.

Tottenham boss Antonio Conte, coming off a loss against Brighton, will be well aware of the importance of winning this game, especially with the possibility of Arsenal gaining ground at home to United the day before.

The Spurs front three is capable of opening up any defence but Brentford are playing their best football of the season currently.

Sunday 24 April

Chelsea vs West Ham

Last time these two teams played each other West Ham grab a late goal and secure a shock win 3-2 as an Arthur Masuaku cross-shot wrong-footed Edouard Mendy.

Most Chelsea fans believed the Blues were safe in third place but a second consecutive loss could open up the possibility of their side getting sucked into a five-way battle for Champions League football, a fight West Ham are currently trying to re-enter, currently five points behind London rivals Arsenal and Spurs, while also worrying about a Europa League semi-final clash with Eintracht Frankfurt.

Liverpool vs Everton

A Merseyside derby with arguably the biggest stakes ever with serious history on the line for both sides.

Liverpool have set themselves the target of winning out this season and hoping that City, one point ahead, slip up to hand them the title. Everton also have a one-point margin to worry about, because that is the narrow gap to the relegation zone below them.

The Toffees proved against United that they are still capable of springing a surprise result, but getting one over on their city rivals at Anfield is a whole different challenge, specially when you consider that Everton have conceded 53 goals this season, four of which came against Liverpool in December.
