Premier League preview: A statistical look at all of tonight's games, including Arsenal v Hull, Manchester United v Everton and Fulham v Tottenham

Providers of the largest online database for detailed football statistics preview all of tonight's Premier League matches

Arsenal welcome a Hull side in buoyant mood to the Emirates after their shock win over Liverpool at the weekend but the Tigers have been polar opposites at home and away this season. No side have picked up a lower proportion of their overall points tally on the road this season (3/17 - 18%) and the Gunners have won 5 consecutive matches at home, conceding just twice in the process.

Liverpool host a Norwich side that have had a torrid time against the Reds in recent years. The Canaries have conceded 13 goals in the last 3 meetings between the two sides, with Luis Suarez netting 7 times in those matches. To make matters worse for Hughton's side, Liverpool have scored 11 goals in their last 3 matches at Anfield and will feel they have something to prove after defeat at the weekend.

Everton travel to Old Trafford in the knowledge that they have not won a league game at United since the inaugural Premier League campaign in 1992/93. Since then they have lost 16 and drawn just 4 of 20 matches. The Toffees only defeat this season came in Manchester at the Etihad but they have had more shots per game, more possession and a better pass accuracy than Moyes' men this season.

Southampton may have lost back-to-back games but they remain unbeaten at home thus far ahead of the visit of Aston Villa. No side are on a longer unbeaten run away from home than Paul Lambert's men this season, who have conceded the joint fewest number of goals on the road (5). The Saints, however, have won their last 4 matches at St. Mary's, scoring 10 and conceding just once in the process.

Stoke are back at the Britannia and will be thankful of that much having struggled away from home thus far. No side have conceded a lower proportion of their overall goals against tally in home matches this season (17%), while Cardiff have netted just 4 times on the road thus far and not in their last 260 minutes of action away from home.

Sunderland have won all three of their home matches under Gus Poyet thus far, including a 1-0 victory over Man City, but host a Chelsea side that have emerged victorious from their last 8 trips to the Stadium of Light. John Terry, who opened his league account at the weekend, has scored in 3 of his last 5 appearances in Sunderland, while against no other side has Fernando Torres scored more league goals in his career (6).

The game between Swansea and Newcastle sees two of the sides tipped to complete the top 10 this season come head-to-head in what is likely to be another tight affair. Only one of the 4 goals scored when the sides met last season was netted before the 85th minute and neither side were able to break the deadlock in the first half in either game. Meanwhile, of the 17 goals the Swans have scored this season just 3 have come before half time.

Fulham sacked manager Martin Jol at the weekend with Rene Meulensteen inevitably taking charge of the club having been appointed as head coach during his predecessor's reign. It's not an easy start for the Dutchman as in their last 5 meetings with Tottenham, the only Cottagers player to have scored is Dimitar Berbatov, who began his time in England at Spurs.

West Brom are without a win in three league matches having thrown away points in each of those games. They host a City side that have been rampant at home but awful away having lost 4 of 6 matches on the road. Nevertheless, the Baggies have netted just once in their last 6 meetings with a side that, despite such a dismal record away from the Etihad, are still favourites with many to win the league.
