Tuesday's sporting action will be highlighted by the final of the World Darts Championship at Alexandra Palace as well as a quartet of crucial games from the Premier League.

What: PDC World Darts Championship final
Where: Alexandra Palace, London
When: 19:30, Tuesday 3rd January
How to watch: Sky Sports Main Event and Arena

Smith booked his place in the final with a win over Gabriel Clemens, while van Gerwen overcame Dimitri Van den Bergh to take his place in the showpiece match.

Premier League: Arsenal could move 10 points clear

What: Arsenal v Newcastle
Where: Emirates Stadium, London
When: 19:45, Tuesday 3rd January
How to watch: Sky Sports Main Event and Premier League
Odds: Arsenal 4/5, Draw 14/5, Newcastle 16/5

Arsenal have won both their matches since returning from the World Cup break and they can move an unprecedented 10 points clear of nearest rivals Manchester City with a victory over third-place Newcastle in the pick of Tuesday's Premier League games.

Mikel Arteta's table-toppers have won all seven of their home league fixtures to date this term and they boast an imperious record against Newcastle at the Emirates as well, winning the last 11 meetings between the two sides at the venue, a run that dates back to 2010.

Newcastle are themselves in good form, losing just once across all competitions this term, but Arsenal appear well placed at 4/5 to record what would be a sixth league win on the spin.

That top of the table clash is one of four fixtures scheduled in the Premier League on Tuesday, with in-form Manchester United 1/4 to get the better of Bournemouth at Old Trafford.

Everton, fresh from their spirited New Year's Eve draw at Manchester City, are 5/2 to overcome 11/10 Brighton on home soil, while Leicester are 6/5 to secure their first league win since the season resumed against an impressive Fulham team that can be backed at 21/10.

International Cricket: Aussies eye series whitewash

What: Australia v South Africa
Where: Sydney Cricket Ground, Sydney
When: 23:30, Tuesday 3rd January
How to watch: BT Sport 2
Odds: Australia 1/3, Draw 4/1, South Africa 17/2

Australia have claimed dominant wins in the opening two matches of their Test series with South Africa and they will be confident of completing a 3-0 series whitewash during this week's third Test, which will get underway in Sydney late night on Tuesday.

The Aussies won the opening Test of the series inside two days in Brisbane - the first two-day Test on Australian soil for 91 years - while South Africa fared little better in the second Test, losing by an innings and 182 runs in Melbourne.

Captain Pat Cummins, spinner Nathan Lyon and paceman Mitchell Starc have all taken eight wickets apiece in the series to date for Australia, but with the latter having been ruled out of the third Test, it will be up to the others to fill the void.

Australia are 1/4 to complete a 3-0 series success, while South Africa are 17/2 to claim a surprise win that would at least hand them some momentum heading into the upcoming One Day International series between the two sides.
