Burnley, who won the reverse fixture at Goodison Park in October, have not won both league matches against Everton in a season since 1959/60, when they won the top-flight title.

There have been no draws in the last seven PL meetings between these sides. Everton have won four of the matches and Burnley have come out on top in the other three.

Bournemouth have found the net in each of their last nine PL matches - their best ever scoring run in the division. They have netted 18 goals in the process.

Eleven of Bournemouth’s last 12 PL goals have come in the second half, with eight of them arriving in the 70th minute or later.

Southampton have both scored and conceded in 17 of their 28 PL matches this season – already once more than in the entirety of the 2016/17 campaign (16/38).

#SWAWHU
Swansea have won their last three PL home matches. They last won four in a row in May 2016.

The Hammers have scored in their last 11 PL matches - the second-longest current run in the division (Tottenham have 16) and their second-best ever run in the competition (18 between February and September 2016).



#TOTHUD
Tottenham have won their last 15 matches against promoted sides – the third-longest run in PL history after Chelsea (27 between 2002 and 2006) and Manchester United (17 between 2006-2009).

Spurs are currently enjoying the Premier League’s longest unbeaten run (10 matches - W7 D3 L0), last losing at Manchester City in December.

Huddersfield have the chance to secure a third successive PL victory for the first time this season. They last achieved that in a top-flight campaign in April 1956 (four in a row).



#WATWBA
Watford have only lost one of their five PL meetings with West Bromwich Albion (W2 D2) and have kept a clean sheet in both home matches so far (W1 D1).

The Hornets are looking to win a third successive PL home match for the first time since April 2017. One of their victories in that run last season was against West Brom (2-0).

Albion, who have been defeated in their last four PL matches, have not lost five in a row since January 2011.

Arsenal are unbeaten in 34 PL matches against promoted sides (W29 D5), ever since a 2-1 loss against Queens Park Rangers in March 2012.

The Amex Stadium will be the 57th ground at which Arsenal have played a PL match. They have won at 50 of the previous 56 (89.3%). Only Liverpool have won at a higher percentage (93.1% - 54/58).
