Sheffield United v Man City

Saturday, 11.30am (12.30pm KO)

TV: BT Sport 1 and BT Sport Ultimate

Live stream: btsport.com and BT Sport app

We kick the weekend off with a must-watch Premier League clash as 19th-place Sheffield United welcome Manchester City to Bramall Lane.

The Blades were last season's surprise package after earning promotion to the top flight but their second term in the Premier League is proving to be a reality check for Chris Wilder's side.

Sheffield United are winless in their last nine Premier League games (D1 L8), the longest ongoing run among all current sides in the competition.

In fact, the Yorkshire outfit have had the fewest shots (409) and fewest shots on target (131) in the league while club record signing Rhian Brewster is yet to make his mark since arriving from Liverpool.

They are the ideal opposition for Pep Guardiola's Man City who are looking to piece together some early season consistency.

After relinquishing their crown to Liverpool last season many expected the Citizens to mount a fresh challenge for the title but their campaign has got off to a shaky start.

Guardiola's men have already dropped seven points from their opening five games to leave them 13th in the table and five points adrift of league leaders Everton.

History will be on their side even if the form book isn't. Sheffield United are winless in their last six league meetings with Man City (D2 L4), failing to score in any of the last four. Their last victory against them was in the second tier in January 2000.

Can the home side cause an upset to earn their first three points of the season or will City return to winning ways?

Cologne v Bayern Munich

Saturday, 2.30pm kick off

TV: BT Sport 2 HD

Live stream: btsport.com and BT Sport app

Bayern Munich will be looking to keep the heat on surprise Bundesliga leaders RB Leipzig when they face Cologne on Saturday afternoon. 

The Bavarians have won eight successive German league crowns but face a fresh challenge for their supremacy from Julian Nagelsmann's young side.

Hans-Dieter Flick's side began their league title defence with a resounding 8-0 thrashing of Schalke on the opening day of the season as former Arsenal and West Brom winger Serge Gnabry netted a hat-trick.

But the euphoria of that triumph proved short lived as Bayern were beaten 4-1 by Hoffenheim nine days later to put an early dent in their bid to win a ninth successive league title.

Bayern's hosts on Saturday Cologne have picked up just two points from their opening five fixtures and are yet to win in the Bundesliga this season.

Will Cologne spring an upset and break their winless run or will the Bayern juggernaut cruise past their relegation-threatened opponents?

UFC Fight Night: Uriah Hall vs Anderson Silva

Saturday, 9pm (11pm main card)

TV: BT Sport 1 HD

Live stream: btsport.com BT Sport app

UFC will bid farewell to a legend of the sport on Saturday evening when Anderson Silva takes to the octagon for the last time against Uriah Hall.

45-year-old 'Spider' Silva will finally hang up his gloves having ruled the MMA world for more than a decade.

“This is the last fight. For sure, this is the last fight," Silva said ahead of his swansong on Saturday night.

"I love the sport but I’ve prepared my mind for this. I’ve prepared for fights my entire life, but yes, this is my last fight in the UFC," he added.

“I think I’ll miss the training [the most]. Preparing my mind, preparing my body. This I think is most important and I feel sad because I don’t have this anymore. This is the last one."

As “The Spider” gears up for the final fight of his iconic career against Hall this weekend, middleweight champion Isreal Adesanya paid tribute to his one-time middleweight rival.

“I’ve been in there with him, I’ve watched him for years and he can win this fight quite easily. He might even stop Uriah but, I’m telling you, if Uriah just sticks to basics he might give him problems, but this is fighting,” said Adesanya.

“It’s a good way to send him off,” he added.

“I would have liked to be the guy to send him off, but Uriah I think is a good stylistic matchup to send him off.”

Tune in from 11pm on Saturday evening to see if Silva can bring the curtain down on his illustrious career with a 35th victory inside the octagon.

FA Cup final: Everton Ladies v Manchester City Women

Sunday, 2.15pm  (3pm kick off) 

TV: BT Sport 1 HD

Live stream: btsport.com and BT Sport app

Holders Manchester City face Everton in the final of the 50th addition of the Women's FA Cup final on Sunday.

Having lost out to Chelsea in the Community Shield, defending champions City will be desperate to retain their crown. 

Sunday’s final  throws up some intriguing sub-plots with a host of familiar faces ready to lock horns against their former clubs in different shades of blue.

Izzy Christiansen has impressed for Everton since moving back to Merseyside from Lyon and is set to line up against City for the first time since leaving the club for France.

City booked their place in the final with a 2-1 victory over 14-time winners Arsenal in the semi-finals whilst Everton got the better of Birmingham.

“It would mean a lot to win the trophy,” said City boss Gareth Taylor.

“In my coaching career, it would be one of the biggest things I’ve done so it’s really important to me.

“Hopefully, there will be other opportunities as well but I’m not playing down at all how important it would be to me.

“It would certainly reinforce the good work we’re putting in and show some reward for that."
