Brighton v West Ham
Friday 5 October, 7pm, Sky Sports Premier League/HD (CH 512/502)
Kick-start your feast of stellar sporting action on the south coast, as Chris Hughton’s Brighton host Manuel Pellegrini’s West Ham in the Premier League. Both teams are in need of points after muted starts to the season left them mired in the bottom half, but who will hold their nerve and earn the spoils at the Amex?
Southampton v Chelsea

Sunday’s action comes from the south coast too – Chelsea have looked like Premier League title contenders ever since the opening weekend of the campaign, and now their bid for glory takes them to St Mary’s Stadium. The form book suggests that the Blues will come out on top, but you never know in this league…
ATP Rolex Shanghai Masters

Djokovic? Federer? Nadal? Whichever tennis ace you are rooting for, get set for a week of five-star action from China, as the best of the best in the men’s game meet at the penultimate Masters 1000 event of the season.
