The amount of sport on this weekend will shock you - here's how to watch it all

This weekend is crammed with more sport than you’ll ever manage to watch.

With decisions looking tough, we’ve compiled a helpful guide to the mouthwatering sporting buffet – take a look.


The international break is officially over and isn’t back until March, which is quite probably music to your ears for some of you – here’s the incredible club football on this weekend.


The Premier League has eight games on offer, including Manchester United v Arsenal at 12:30pm on Sky Sports 1 and six 3pm kick-offs with Manchester City, Liverpool and Everton in action. At 5.30pm, Spurs play West Ham in a London derby of sorts on BT Sport 1.

Over in Spain Atletico take on La Liga leaders Real in the Madrid derby at the Vicente Calderon on Sky Sports 5. Meanwhile in Germany, Borussia Dortmund host Bayern Munich, with both currently tied on points at the top of the Bundesliga.


On Sunday title hopefuls Chelsea are away to Middlesbrough in the Prem. Meanwhile if European football is more your thing, there’s am old classic in the Serie A with AC Milan playing Inter Milan at 7.45pm on BT Sport 2.


If you prefer your balls egg-shaped, November’s international fixtures have more epic matches in store on Saturday.

The blockbuster game is Ireland v New Zealand, at 5.30pm on Sky Sports 2 as Ireland look to repeat the brilliant win they managed earlier this month over the usually indomitable World Cup holders.

For the other Home Nations, England face Fiji at Twickenham on Sky Sports 2 at 2.30pm looking to continue their faultless win-record under Eddie Jones. You may need an extra screen too, as Wales face Japan at the same time on BBC One. Over on BBC Two, Scotland host Argentina at 5pm.


Andy Murray’s reign as world number one hangs in the balance this weekend, knowing he needs to beat Novak Djokovic in the ATP World Tour Finals to retain his position.

After beating Stan Wawrinka on Friday, Murray must now beat Milos Raonic at 2pm in the semi-final on BBC Two and the other semi-final follows as Djokovic faces Kei Nishikori. The winners of those games will face off in the final at 6pm on Sunday.


There’s a late night super-fight being held in Las Vegas at 2am on Sunday morning.

Billed as the fight of the year, Andre Ward will try to win Sergey Kovalev’s IBF, WBA and WBO light-heavyweight titles. With 41 knockouts, 61 fights and no losses between them this truly is one to watch.

Rock, paper, scissors

Finally, in case none of this physical sport is your cup of tea, the 10th UK Rock, Paper Scissors Championship takes place this weekend.

Billed as “three hours of pure excitement, adrenaline and tension” this cherry on the top of the weekend’s sporting cake will be sure to impress.

If you happen to be pottering around London on the weekend, the championship is on Saturday at 6pm at the Green Man pub in London.
