After a hiatus for the FA Cup and the League Cup, the Premier League returns this weekend and is at the centre of the best sport to show in the pub.

Football: Leicester v Chelsea (Saturday, 5.30pm) - BT Sport 1

Saturday evening's match sees the Premier League champions of 2015 and 2016 face each another. Only one of these sides is likely to secure the title in 2017, but Leicester have shown a tendency to up their game when up against high-quality opposition this season. All of which should lead to a fascinating game to get customers into the pub early this Saturday evening.

Football: Everton v Manchester City (Sunday, 1.30pm) - Sky Sports 1

An exceptional Sunday afternoon of sport begins with stuttering Everton hosting Pep Guardiola's Manchester City. The timing of this match could not be better for a boost in Sunday lunches so expect a potential lift in kitchen trade if your pub is a popular one with Manchester City or Everton fans.

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

Straight after Manchester City's visit to Merseyside, Liverpool visit Manchester. Both sides are on excellent form and are fierce rivals so this is likely to be a popular game. Some customers may also stay behind in the pub after the previous game to watch this one so table service is an option to keep those fans happy.

NFL: Play-off Sunday (Sunday, 6.05pm) - Sky Sports 2

We are edging closer and closer to Super Bowl Sunday and finding out who will be taking part in the showpiece event. If the Super Bowl is the NFL final, this weekend's four matches are effectively the quarter-finals. Sunday night is the best time to use these matches to your advantage for extra business because there will be very little else on TV and there are two matches that will take licensees all the way from the early evening until after midnight.
