Premier League preview: A statistical look at this weekend's games including Hull City v Manchester City; Everton v Cardiff City; Aston Villa v Chelsea; Manchester United v Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur v Arsenal

Providers of the largest online database for detailed football statistics WhoScored.com preview all of the matches in matchweek 30 of the Premier League

Manchester City are on the longest current unbeaten run away from home in the Premier League, with 7. With no side having gone 8 matches without defeat on the road, Pellegrini's men travel to Hull, who having lost just one of their first 7 league matches at home, have won just one of the last 7.

Having struggled at home this season Swansea are now unbeaten in three league matches at the Liberty Stadium. They host a West Brom side that have gone 10 matches without a win on the road in the league and have beaten the Baggies in 4 of the 5 Premier League encounters between the sides.

Everton's home form is keeping them in the hunt for European football next season having won their last 4 matches at Goodison Park. The Toffees have kept 6 clean sheets at home this season and host a Cardiff side that have lost their last 7 away matches, scoring in just two of those games.

Despite having the worst home record in the league Fulham have only failed to score in one home league match all season. That's a feat matched only by Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester City. They host a Newcastle side that have only picked up fewer points on the road than four sides thus far (22).

Southampton will still have feint hopes of finishing in the top 6 this season but they have won just 1 of their last 8 home league matches. Nevertheless their visitors Norwich have lost their last 4 away matches and have the worst chance conversion rate in the division (5.9%).



West Ham have scored exactly one goal in each of their last 6 visits to the Britannia Stadium in all competitions. However, though Stoke are by no means out of the relegation battle themselves only five sides have a better home record in the league this season.

Having drawn in their last match away from home at Swansea, Crystal Palace will be looking to avoid defeat for the second game running on the road for the first time all season. The morale at the Stadium of Light may be low after back-to-back cup defeats and they’ve picked up the majority of their points away from home of late.

The last two meetings between Villa and Chelsea have been tight affairs, with the Blues winning both 2-1 following their 8-0 drubbing of the Villans last season. In general this fixture is a high scoring encounter, with 30 goals scored between the sides in their last 6 encounters (Villa - 10, Chelsea - 20).

Manchester United and Liverpool haven't drawn a game at Old Trafford since 2000, with United winning each of the last 6 when playing host to the Merseysiders. The Reds are well in the title hunt this season, however, and have scored 27 more goals in the first half of league matches this season (45) than Moyes’ side (18).

Only 1 of the last 12 North London derbies in the Premier League have been won by the away side, with Arsenal last winning at White Hart Lane in the league back in 2007. Spurs are one of 7 sides to have picked up fewer points at home than they have away, however, and their goal difference in the 6 matches they've played against the current top 4 is -20.
