Sky have set up a potentially decisive weekend in the race for the Premier League title and the top four race by moving two key derby games to the same day. 

Both the battle to be crowned champions and the tussle to claim a lucrative spot in the Champions League look set to go down to the wire.

Tottenham and Liverpool are locked in a fight with Everton and Manchester United in a bid to qualify for European club football's most prestigious tournament.

Arsenal meanwhile are going for the title - but must fight off big-spending giants Manchester City and Chelsea.

Now Sky have set up a huge weekend of action towards the end of the season by moving both the north London derby between Arsenal and Tottenham, and the north-west derby between Manchester United and Liverpool to Sunday, March 2.

Chelsea will also have a chance to get in on the action when they go up against Aston Villa in their rescheduled fixture on March 1.

Also announced in the fixture rejig, Tottenham will now travel to Chelsea on March 8, and Manchester City take on Manchester United at Old Trafford on March 25 - a game that could also have huge consequences in the title and top four races.
