Premier League Stats (12th-14th Jan 19)

After the FA Cup weekend break, we return to the Premier League this weekend for week 22.

We get going on Saturday lunchtime with an all-London Derby as Arsenal travel to West Ham and with the Gunners having not lost in their last 10 away league games at the Hammers then everything points to a win for the visitors here.

Plenty of 3pm games to get stuck into too that include Crystal Palace welcoming Watford to Selhurst Park, while Southampton travel to Leicester and with the last two repeat fixtures ending 0-0 it might be a long afternoon for both sets of fans – we’ll see!

We end the Saturday action with Chelsea hosting Newcastle at Stamford Bridge in a clash the Blues took 3-1 last season.

Onto Sunday and we’ve two more games in week 22 that begin with Everton at Home to Bournemouth, while we’ve a real cracker at 4:30pm as Spurs take on Manchester United at Wembley and with the Londoners unbeaten at home in their last six games over the Red Devils then Kane and Co will fancy their chances here.

Then we conclude the action on Monday evening as the champions – Man City – make the trip to Wolves in a clash that ended 1-1 when the sides met earlier this season.

As always, we’ve got all the games covered from a head-to-head angle, plus our best betting option on each match based on the stats – So, let’s get started!
