|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Newcastle||Recent Form|
Key Stat: The last time this fixture produced a goalless draw was in 1974, 64 meetings ago
Expert Verdict: This pair have produced some classics down the years and six of the eight meetings since Newcastle returned to the top flight for 2010-11 have finished with over 2.5 goals. The teams have kept just four Premier League clean sheets between them and Newcastle's recent form suggests they can give Liverpool a decent contest.
Recommendation: Both teams to score
REFEREE: Andre Marriner STADIUM: St James' Park
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Chelsea||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Chelsea have only scored more than once in the first half twice this season
Expert Verdict: Recent meetings have been close, with QPR beating Chelsea at Loftus Road in 2011 and only a 6-1 thrashing towards the end of 2011-12 reflecting the gulf in class sides in Rangers' last stint in the top flight. Chelsea should win but it may not be a complete thrashing.
Recommendation: Chelsea 2-0
REFEREE: Mike Jones STADIUM:
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Hull||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Hull have drawn five of their last eight league games
Expert Verdict: Southampton have made a superb start to the season but Hull have been very tough to beat too. Steve Bruce’s side have come away with draws from the Emirates and Anfield in their last two games and Manchester City are the only team to win at the KC Stadium so far. The Tigers can take a point off the Saints too.
REFEREE: Martin Atkinson STADIUM: Kingston Communication Stad.
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Stoke||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Three of Stoke’s four home league games have been under 2.5 goals
Expert Verdict: West Ham’s remarkable start to the season hit new heights with their win over Manchester City last weekend but a trip to the Britannia remains a tough test. Much of Stoke’s top-flight success has been built on a formidable home record and even free-scoring West Ham will find them hard to break down.
Recommendation: 1-1 draw
REFEREE: Chris Foy STADIUM:
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Everton||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Swansea have one point from their last three road trips
Expert Verdict: Everton’s reserves lost 3-0 to Swansea in the League Cup but there should be no repeat at Goodison Park. The Toffees’s recent form doesn’t look great but it doesn’t tell the whole story. They drew at Anfield and were unlucky to lose at Old Trafford – their only defeat in six matches, despite five of them being away games.
REFEREE: Kevin Friend STADIUM:
|Recent Form||Last Head-To-Heads at Arsenal||Recent Form|
Key Stat: Arsenal have scored in eight of nine league games
Expert Verdict: Last weekend’s victory at Sunderland was only Arsenal’s third win in nine league games but they should take a routine three points at home to Burnley. The Clarets remain without a Premier League win and are desperately short of goals – they’ve failed to score in three of four league away games.
Recommendation: Arsenal 2-0
