Saturday football live blog

Join us for live updates from the Absa Premiership and Barclays Premier League matches taking place on Saturday.

The big one sees Orlando Pirates taking on archrivals Kaizer Chiefs in the Soweto derby at FNB Stadium. Kick-off is at 3:30pm CAT (SA, GMT+2) and of course, the match is live on SS4, SSHD4 and supersport.com with the build-up starting at 2pm.

Chiefs lead Pirates by three points and a win will help them go six points clear going into the final matches of the first round.

In the Barclays Premier League, Chelsea visit Sunderland still looking for their first win under new manager Rafael Benitez. Arsenal will look to bounce back when they host West Brom at The Emirates Stadium.

A total of six matches kick off at 5pm CAT (SA, GMT+2) today, with all eyes on Sunday's Manchester derby between hosts City and United.
