QPR vs Stoke City is the first match of the weekend and can be seen on BT Sport 1 at 12.45pm on Saturday.

Both teams are looking to kick-start their season with Stoke on four points after four games and QPR on three. Harry Redknapp will know these sorts of home games are just the sort his side must win if they are to retain their Premier League status.

There are four 3pm kick-offs on Saturday, none of which can or are being shown on television. Which means the next Premier League match on TV is West Ham vs Liverpool at 5.30pm. That match at Upton Park can be seen on Sky Sports 1.

On Sunday there are four Premier League matches, two of which are on TV. The first is newly promoted Leicester City vs Manchester United at 1.30pm on Sky Sports 1. The Foxes haven't beaten United since 1998 when Tony Cottee scored the winner, but with Louis van Gaal's new signings still bedding in, the home side will be hoping to cause an upset. Radamel Falcao is in line to make his first start.

The afternoon match is the stand-out tie of the weekend - Manchester City vs Chelsea at 4pm on Sky Sports 1. The game at the Etihad sees the two title favourites come face-to-face. Manuel Pellegrini will be hoping things go better than last season when his team were beaten home and away in the league by Jose Mourinho's side.
