Last Updated: 29/11/18 11:46am
Derby Day will feature three of the most local derbies in England or Scotland this Sunday - but which two teams are closest?
Super Sunday delivers an early festive treat this weekend with a triple header of derbies, kicking off with Chelsea hosting Fulham, before Tottenham travel to Arsenal and Liverpool face Everton at Anfield.
Ahead of the derby feast, Sky Sports calculated distances between all clubs from the top-four tiers in England and Scotland - to find out which fixture is the most local derby.
From nearly 9,000 different combinations between the 134 stadiums, Dundee and Dundee United emerged as the closest - separated by just 0.17 miles as the crow flies.
Nottingham Forest and Notts County are divided by two league tiers - but just 0.26 miles separate the City Ground and Meadow Lane - making the Nottingham derby England's most local derby.
The Merseyside derby is the third-closest in England or Scotland and is the closest between two clubs currently residing in the same division - with just 0.59 miles between Anfield and Goodison Park.

And Derby Day's opening fixture between Fulham and Chelsea is the fourth closest derby across both countries, with 1.4 miles dividing Craven Cottage and Stamford Bridge.
The north London derby would typically be the 25th closest with 3.82 miles between the Emirates and White Hart Lane - but that division has extended to 7.36 miles during Spurs' temporary stay at Wembley - making it the 75th closest.
The two clubs furthest apart are Devon-based Plymouth Argyle and Scottish League Two side Elgin City FC, with 504 direct miles dividing the sides.
