Manchester United must bounce back from another tough pill to swallow in midweek but have picked up more points on the road (30) than at Old Trafford this season (21). The Red Devils have, however, scored at least 3 goals in 6 of their last 7 home matches against Aston Villa.

Crystal Palace have picked up over 71% of their total points tally this season at Selhurst Park but host a Chelsea side looking to build on their 6-0 drubbing of Arsenal. The Blues' strikers have scored a modest 15 goals between them this season, with just 2 coming away from home.

Southampton have the chance to leapfrog Newcastle with a win over the Magpies this weekend and have a man in form in Jay Rodriguez. The England hopeful scored in the reverse fixture between the sides and has netted in his last 3 appearances.

Only the Premier League's top 5 sides have a better home record than Stoke this season, with the Potters having beaten the likes of Arsenal, United and Chelsea at the Britannia. The hosts have kept clean sheets in back-to-back matches against this weekend's opponents Hull.

Swansea are on the longest streak without a win in the Premier League, falling below their visitors Norwich this weekend last time out. Both sides have scored in each of the Swans' last 6 league matches and in each of the last 5 meetings between these two.

Last weekend Ole Gunnar Solskjaer claimed that the upcoming match at West Brom was one that Cardiff could not afford to lose. The Bluebirds have fallen to defeat in each of their last 8 away league matches however, which is the longest losing streak on the road in Europe's top 5 leagues.

Arsenal have conceded 17 goals against the three sides above them in the Premier League in just 5 matches, though all of these have come away from home. They host a Manchester City side that have Yaya Toure in scintillating form, with 7 goals in his last 8 league matches.

Fulham won last time out at home, while Everton picked up 3 points in their last away game, with both victories coming against Newcastle. The Toffees' away form has cost them this season, with just 5 wins on the road, but Fulham have lost more matches at home than any other team thus far (10).

Liverpool have lost just one of their last 19 league meetings at Anfield against this weekend's visitors Tottenham. Meanwhile, 23 of the 40 goals that Spurs have conceded this season (58%) have come against the current top 4.

Sunderland are undefeated in their last 5 matches against West Ham, with the Hammers netting just once during that run. Nevertheless, no side have scored fewer goals as hosts (13) or won fewer home matches than the Black Cats (3).
