How many derbies can we spot on talkSPORT and talkSPORT 2 here?

There’s the Yorkshire one at Hillsborough Stadium, but what about the Carlos Tevez derby in east London?

Yes, GameDay begins with a Championship clash and a battle between one formerly sleeping giant and a current one in.

talkSPORT will be across everything on Saturday and here’s what we’ve got in store.

Manchester City vs Aston Villa

Coverage starts from 11am on talkSPORT (kick-off 12:30pm)

Manchester City have won their last nine Premier League home games against Aston Villa by an aggregate score of 30-4, however, they’ve already lost against one promoted team this season when Norwich pulled off a shock win.

Villa were a big side once and can even boast more European Cups than their opponents, who would love nothing more to be crowned kings of Europe.

And in Jack Grealish, they have a man in form. In his last four Premier League games, the midfielder has been involved in four goals (two goals and two assists) and created 15 chances for his team-mates.

Sergio Aguero, meanwhile, has scored six goals in his last four Premier League games against Aston Villa, including five in his last three against them at the Etihad.

Reshmin Chowdhury, Sam Matterface and Stuart Pearce will be on hand for all of talkSPORT’s live and exclusive coverage of the clash.

Sheffield Wednesday vs Leeds

talkSPORT 2 has the Yorkshire derby and it will begin at 12.30pm

This should be good. None of the last 42 league meetings between the two have ended goalless since a 0-0 draw in April 1969 in the top-flight.

Garry Monk is one of only two managers Marcelo Bielsa has lost more than one game against as Leeds manager, along with Steve McClaren.

A win for either side could see them close the gap on West Brom, who host Charlton at 3pm the same day.

Three points would also widen the gap between themselves and the rest of the pack chasing promotion to the Premier league.

Dan Windle will host our talkSPORT 2 coverage with live and exclusive commentary from Nigel Adderley and Neil Redfearn.

West Ham play Sheffield United, a fixture that may be a bit spicy from a Blades’ perspective

West Ham vs Sheffield United

Kick-off from The London Stadium is 3pm

This one is still memorable for the goal Carlos Tevez scored for West Ham against Man United in 2007 on the final day of the season that relegated the Blades and enraged Neil Warnock.

The goal kept the Hammers in the Premier League, but Sheffield United were unhappy the Argentine was eligible to play at the end of the campaign due to the existence of registration with a third-party, which was discovered in January.

Things, though, are looking good for Sheffield United. Since the start of the 2016/17 season, Chris Wilder has won 79 league matches as manager and in the top four tiers, only Jurgen Klopp (81) and Pep Guardiola (93) have won more in that time.

West Ham manager Manuel Pellegrini, meanwhile, is set to face Sheffield United for the first time in the Premier League – he has registered a victory against 25 of the previous 28 teams he’s faced, failing only against Brighton, Man City and Wolves.

Burnley vs Chelsea

Coverage begins at 5pm on talkSPORT (kick-off 5.30pm)

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is looking to win four successive league games for the first time in his managerial career, with the Blues last winning four Premier League games in a row in September 2018 under Maurizio Sarri.

Burnley have only won one of their 25 Premier League encounters with ‘big six’ clubs – a 2-1 victory against Tottenham at Turf Moor in February 2019 – and are without a clean sheet in their last 34 such games, conceding 75 goals.
Chelsea have won their last three Premier League away games, scoring at least three goals on each occasion.

Laura Woods will be presenting, while Ian Danter and Micky Gray are in the commentary box.
