England will be hoping to round off a perfect 2016 by overcoming Australia. That plus more in our round-up of the best sport to show in the pub this weekend.

Football: Manchester City v Chelsea (Saturday, 12.30pm) - Sky Sports 1

The Premier League leaders meet the favourites for the Premier League title in an outstanding beginning to the weekend of sport. Both teams have tactically innovated and thus entertained this season and so this game could well bring a boost to Saturday lunchtime trade on both the food and drink front.

Rugby Union: England v Australia (Saturday, 2.30pm) - Sky Sports 2

Following their elimination from the World Cup at the hands of Australia last autumn, England have gone on a winning run of 13 matches, including three consecutive wins in Australia earlier in the year. The Wallabies will be seething from that reverse and looking for revenge in a fixture that never needs an excuse to deliver some drama.

Football: West Ham v Arsenal (Saturday, 5.30pm) - BT Sport 1

Saturday afternoon is the gift is that keeps on giving, the lunchtime Premier League football flows straight into the rugby, which flows straight into this London derby. For the customers that have spent the entirety of their afternoon in the pub watching the sport, this is a great chance to innovate with a food offer that gives them the sustenance to enjoy what is on the screen.

Football: Everton v Manchester United (Sunday, 4pm) - Sky Sports 1

The stand-out football match on Sunday sees Manchester United aim to kick start their season against a consistently impressive Everton side. There is not an abundance of headline-grabbing sport on Sunday so it is worth widely publicising any sport that is being shown to bring a boost in trade.
