Arctic Monkeys look set to chart in the Top 20 with their cover of The Beatles' 'Come Together' this weekend.

The band performed the track at the Olympic Opening Ceremony on Friday (July 27) and are set to take the Number 19 spot in Sunday's (August 5) Official UK Singles Chart, according to the Official Charts Company.

Meanwhile, Florence And The Machine look set to lose the Number One spot to Wiley's 'Heatwave'.

Florence and co's 'Spectrum' may also be overtaken by Calvin Harris and Example's 'We'll Be Coming Be Back', which is currently at Number Two, with 'Spectrum' down at Number Three, with Maroon 5 at Four and Karmin at Number Five.

The other only high new entry is set to come from Underworld's Olympics track 'Caliban's Dream', which is set to land at Number Seven.

In the album chart, Conor Maynard looks set to take the Number One spot, knocking Plan B's 'iLL Manors' down to Number Two.

The teenage singer's debut 'Contrast' is currently outselling Ben Drew's new soundtrack and Chase and Status singer Delilah's solo debut 'Roots', which is presently at Number Three.

Emeli Sande and Maroon 5 are set to Number Four and Five respectively, with Mike Oldfield's 'Two Sides: The Very Best Of' set to shoot up to Number Six after his appearance at the Olympic opening ceremony.

Rick Ross is set to chart at Number Seven with his new record 'God Forgives, I Don't', while The Gaslight Anthem are currently just outside the Top 10 at Number 11 with 'Handwritten'. Ed Sheeran, Rihanna and Adele occupy the other places in the Top 10.

Blur's enormous boxset '21' is set to chart at Number 33, while metallers Testament are one place behind at Number 34 with their new LP 'Dark Roots On Earth'.
