H17 2018-10-05 Gamewwek Top Facts & Stats

#LIVMCI
Liverpool last lost to Manchester City at Anfield in May 2003, a run of 17 matches at home in all competitions, with 12 wins and five draws.

This will be the latest meeting between two unbeaten sides in the Premier League since Man City played Newcastle United in their 12th match of the 2011/12 season.

Liverpool's run of nine home matches without conceding is the second longest in the competition, behind the 12 of Manchester United that dates back to December 1994.

#SOUCHE
Chelsea head coach Maurizio Sarri could become the sixth manager to remain unbeaten in his first eight Premier League matches. The previous five are Frank Clark, who was unbeaten in his first 11 PL matches for Nottingham Forest, and four managers on eight matches: John Lyall (Ipswich Town), Peter Taylor (Leicester City), Jose Mourinho and Felipe Scolari (both Chelsea).

The Blues have only one defeat at St Mary's in 11 matches there in all competitions, winning the last three.

Mark Hughes has lost his last six matches to Chelsea as a manager.



#FULARS
Arsenal are aiming for a hat-trick of PL victories at Craven Cottage.

The Gunners will be looking to improve a poor record in away London derbies. They have won only one of their past eight road trips in the capital, a 3-2 victory at Crystal Palace in December 2017.

The team with the best win rate in Premier League London derbies, Arsenal with 51.3 per cent, will be facing the club with the worst in Fulham, with a 20.8 per cent win rate.

Fulham have yet to keep a clean sheet this season and have not kept one at home in a Premier League derby since October 2011.



#MUNNEW
Manchester United have a great record against Newcastle United, losing only one of their last 36 home matches in all competitions against them, winning 26 and drawing nine. The loss was a 1-0 defeat under David Moyes in December 2013.

Newcastle are aiming for consecutive league wins over Man Utd for the first time since October 1972.

An opening goal for Newcastle in this fixture could be ominous for them. They have lost seven Premier League matches when scoring first against Man Utd.

The two managers have good records against their opponents. Rafael Benitez has won six of his last nine against Man Utd in all competitions, but Jose Mourinho can better that, winning all seven at home against Newcastle in all competitions.



#WATBOU
Five of the six Premier League meetings between Watford and AFC Bournemouth have ended as draws, with Watford winning the other 2-0 in August 2017.

Vicarage Road is a bogey ground for the Cherries, who are seeking a first Premier League victory there. Their only victory at the ground in their last 17 visits in all competitions came back in March 1997.

Eddie Howe's side have failed to keep a clean sheet in any of their last nine away league matches, letting in 20 goals in total.



#TOTCAR
Tottenham Hotspur's 37-match unbeaten run against promoted sides, winning 34 and drawing three since losing to Queens Park Rangers in April 2012, is the second longest in the Premier League, after Chelsea’s 63-match run between May 2001 and September 2011.

Spurs have won their last seven home matches in all competitions against the Bluebirds, scoring 19 goals and conceding only five.



#LEIEVE
The first goal in this match has traditionally been crucial. The team opening the scoring in this fixture have never gone on to lose the match. Everton have done so 15 times, winning seven and drawing eight, and Leicester seven times, winning four and drawing three.



#CRYWOV
This will be the first Premier League meeting between Crystal Palace and Wolverhampton Wanderers and their first top-flight match since January 1981.

Wolves are more dangerous after the break, scoring a league-high 88 per cent of their Premier League goals in the second half of matches this season (seven goals out of eight).

Crystal Palace have yet to score at home this term, despite attempting 44 shots, the same as Arsenal who have seven goals.


#BURHUD
Burnley have scored with six of their last seven shots on target in the Premier League.

All four of Huddersfield's Premier League goals in their last 11 PL matches have come away from home.

Should this match end goalless, it will be only the second fixture in Premier League history to feature no goals in the first three meetings, along with Arsenal v Queens Park Rangers between 1992 and 1994.



#BHAWHU
West Ham have lost all three of their top-flight visits to Brighton, losing in 1981/82, 1982/83 and 2017/18.

West Ham are looking to secure back-to-back Premier League away wins for the first time since February 2017.

Brighton have yet to lose back-to-back Premier League matches at the Amex Stadium

Crystal Palace have yet to score at home this term, despite attempting 44 shots, the same as Arsenal who have seven goals.
