Here’s one relevant fact or future for all 10 games this weekend as club football fans rejoice in its return following the international break.

🍿 Saturday 20th

🟨 Leicester vs Chelsea

No EPL side has picked up fewer yellow cards than Chelsea’s 12 this season (1.09 per match on average).

💤 Aston Villa vs Brighton

Villa hasn’t led at half-time in any of the last six league H2Hs (HT: D3, L3). Can Stevie G’s arrival perk them into life at the start of games?

🔐 Burnley vs Crystal Palace

Only one of the last nine EPL head-to-heads saw both teams score and these sides have registered 11 stalemates between them this season. A bore draw on the cards at Turf Moor?

⚫️ Newcastle vs Brentford

Newcastle’s Callum Wilson has scored 14 of his last 16 EPL goals in the first halves of matches.

🐥 Norwich vs Southampton

Norwich has lost all eight EPL matches in which they have conceded the first goal. Needless to say, that’s a league-high. Dean Smith has a big job on his hands.

😈 Watford vs Man United

Cristiano Ronaldo has scored 20 goals in his last 14 league games against promoted teams across spells with Real Madrid and Juventus. With Watford failing to keep a clean sheet in their last 21 EPL matches, the Portuguese icon will fancy his chances of troubling the scorers at Vicarage Road.

🔨 Wolves vs West Ham

No side has scored more set-piece goals (excluding penalties) than West Ham’s six this EPL campaign.

🔴 Liverpool vs Arsenal

Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp’s average of 2.18 points per game against Arsenal is the third-highest points per game ratio of all managers who have faced Arsenal 5+ times in the English top-flight.

 Sunday 21st

🇧🇷 Man City vs Everton

Man City forward Gabriel Jesus has scored eight goals in eight Premier League appearances against Everton, more than he has against any other club, with the Brazilian averaging a goal every 69 minutes against the Toffees.

🕰 Tottenham vs Leeds

This will be Antonio Conte’s first home league match in charge of Tottenham Hotspur, and his first-ever meeting with either Leeds United or Marcelo Bielsa as a manager. Conte has registered at least one win against all 53 of the previous teams he’s faced in his top-flight managerial career in Serie A and the Premier League.
