Football: Tottenham Hotspur v Sunderland (Sunday, 4.30pm) - Sky Sports 1

Tottenham scored four last weekend and Sunderland conceded three. All of which does not bode well for the Black Cats. However, Tottenham may not have fully recovered from their midweek Champions League exploits, so Sunderland striker Jermain Defoe might see a chance to get one over on his old club. Regardless of the outcome, this is the final match of a trio of games on TV on Sunday afternoon, following Watford v Manchester United and Crystal Palace v Stoke City, and viewers in the pub will be hoping the trilogy is rounded off in adequately absorbing fashion.

Football: Fiorentina v Roma (Sunday, 7.45pm) - BT Sport 2

Any football hipsters not exhausted from a mammoth day of Premier League action will be hitting the pub for this tantalising Serie A clash. Roma have had a strong start to the season, while Fiorentina have not yet hit the heights of last season. But both sides will be looking to showcase their fast-flowing attacking football in this match in Florence.
