    Everton vs Watford

    This will be the seventh managerial meeting between Everton boss Rafa Benítez and Watford’s Claudio Ranieri, and the first since Newcastle drew 0-0 with Fulham in December 2018. Both men have overseen two wins each against the other (with two draws), most notably a 3-1 win for the Spaniard over the Italian in the Italian Super Cup back in 2010 (Inter 3-1 Roma).

    Southampton won home and away against Burnley in the Premier League last season, as many victories as they’d managed in their first 10 meetings with them in the competition before then (D3 L5).

    Brighton vs Manchester City

    Manchester City’s Raheem Sterling has scored four goals in four Premier League starts against Brighton, netting a hat-trick on his last visit to the Amex Stadium in July 2020. However, Sterling has scored just once from 13 attempts in the Premier League so far this season.

    Brentford vs Leicester City

    Leicester striker Jamie Vardy has scored in each of his last four Premier League games. A goal vs Brentford would see him become the eighth player to have three different runs of scoring in five or more consecutive Premier League matches, after Sergio Aguero (7), Alan Shearer (5), Ruud van Nistelrooy (4), Thierry Henry, Robbie Keane, Michael Owen and Robin van Persie (all 3).

    West Ham United vs Tottenham Hotspur

    West Ham’s Michail Antonio has scored more Premier League goals against Spurs than he has versus any other side (5). Three of these goals have been scored in one-goal victories (and have been worth six points to the Hammers), while the other two were scored in a 3-2 defeat.

    Manchester United vs Liverpool

    Liverpool are unbeaten in their last 25 Premier League matches against ‘United’ teams (W18 D7) since losing 2-1 away to Manchester United in March 2018. Should they avoid defeat here, it would be the joint- longest unbeaten run against ‘United’ teams in the history of the Football League, matching Brentford’s 26- game run between October 1998 and November 2000.
