Barclays Premier League:

The North London Derby at The Emirates as Arsenal host close rivals Tottenham. This should be a real cracker of a game given the passions aroused by this fixture.


Sunday November 6
4.30pm
Sky Sports 1 HD
Barclays Premier League: Leicester City v West Bromwich Albion
It hasn’t been an easy season for the reigning champions with a number of high-profile losses on the domestic stage but this should be a winnable game for the men from the Midlands.


Friday November 11
7.45pm
ITV1
World Cup 2018 Qualifier: England v Scotland
A hugely anticipated fixture given the rarity of Anglo-Scottish encounters on the international football field. Despite their recent off-field setbacks, England will still be comfortable favourite to win this qualifying match.


Saturday November 12
2pm
Sky Sports 1 HD
Rugby Union: England v 
South Africa
The Springboks head to Fortress Twickenham to face a confident England team whose last outings saw them record a 3-0 series win against Australia.


Saturday November 12

World Cup 2018 Qualifier: 
Wales v Serbia
Wales continue their quest to qualify for the 2018 World Cup and continue the sensational form that saw them reach the semi-finals of the European Championships during the summer.


Sunday November 13
4pm
Sky Sports F1 HD
Formula 1: Brazilian 
Grand Prix
Sao Paulo’s Autodromo Jose Carlos Pace hosts the latest leg of the F1 season. Last year saw Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton achieve a one-two finish with Sebastian Vettel finishing in third place.


Tuesday November 15
8pm
ITV
International Friendly: 
England v Spain
Spain may have misfired in their last two major tournaments but they remain a force to be reckoned with on the international stage and will present a major challenge to Gareth Southgate’s England team.


Saturday November 19
12.30pm
Sky Sports 1 HD
Barclays Premier League: Manchester United v Arsenal
There is no love lost between Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho and his Arsenal counterpart Arsene Wenger and both men will view this as a ‘must win’ encounter.


Saturday November 19
5.30pm
BT Sport 1 HD
Barclays Premier League: Tottenham Hotspur v 
West Ham
It has been a season to forget so far for West Ham, despite their shiny new home in East London’s Olympic Stadium and they will be keen to arrest the downward spiral they have been locked in by gaining some points against an effervescent Spurs side.


Saturday November 19
8pm
Sky Sports 2 HD
Darts:
Grand Slam of Darts
This annual event features players from both the PDA and its rival organisation the BDO, setting up any number of exciting head-to-head encounters at Wolverhampton’s Civic Hall. The 2015 edition of the competition saw Michael van Gerwen beating Phil Taylor in the final to win the prestigious trophy and the £400,000 prize.


Sunday November 20
5pm
Sky Sports 1 HD
Barclays Premier League: Middlesbrough v Chelsea
Boro have struggled for much of the season and the suspicion remains that they will be involved in a relegation battle during the second half of the season. Any points from this fixture would be a massive bonus for the North Easterners.


Sunday November 20
6pm
Sky Sports 3 HD
Tennis: Barclays ATP World Tour Finals
The O2 in London is the epic stage on which the world’s best men’s player will do battle for the honour of finishing as ATP champion. Andy Murray will, of course, receive the biggest cheers from his home crowd as he takes on the likes of Novak Djokovic, Stan Wawrinka and Milos Raonic but this is a gruelling tournament that will test the Scot’s skills and fitness to the ultimate degree.


Wednesday November 23
7.45pm
BT Sport HD
UEFA Champions League: Borussia Monchengladbach v Manchester City
The Bundesliga team will be out for revenge against City, having suffered a 4-0 defeat in the earlier group game between the sides back in September. For their part, City will be happy to unleash their key attacking players against a fairly fragile defence in the expectation of several goals and a victory.

 

Saturday November 26
2.30pm
Sky Sports 1 HD
Rugby Union: England v Argentina
A few years back this fixture would have been regarded as one of the ‘softer’ fixtures for England but Argentina have improved beyond all recognition over the past decade and are now one of the most physical and effective international teams on the planet having hardened themselves against the top Southern Hemisphere nations.
