Aston Villa v Everton

Everton have scored two or more goals in their last eight Premier League encounters with Aston Villa, netting 22 times in that run. It is their longest such scoring streak against a single team in the competition.

Norwich City v Chelsea

Teemu Pukki could become the 10th player to score in his first three Premier League appearances. The Norwich City striker has netted four goals in two matches. Only Pavel Pogrebnyak, for Fulham, scored as many as five goals in his first three appearances.

Brighton & Hove Albion v Southampton

With four points from their first two matches, Brighton & Hove Albion have the chance to start a top-flight campaign with a three-match unbeaten run for the first time.

Manchester United v Crystal Palace

Martial could become the fourth player to score in each of Man Utd's first three matches of a Premier League campaign, after Dwight Yorke in 1999/00, Ruud van Nistelrooy in 2005/06 and Wayne Rooney in 2011/12.

Sheffield United v Leicester City

Sheffield United are aiming to win a seventh match out of 11 at home in the Premier League (D2 L2) and to keep up their run of scoring in every match in that period.

Watford v West Ham United

Watford have five Premier League wins against West Ham United, their most against any club in the competition, but the Hammers have lost only two of their last 15 league trips to the Hornets (W9 D4).

Liverpool v Arsenal

No Premier League fixture has featured more goals than the 155 in 54 meetings between Liverpool and Arsenal. The fixture has also had the most hat-tricks in the competition, with six, scored by Robbie Fowler (twice), Thierry Henry, Peter Crouch, Andrey Arshavin and Roberto Firmino.

AFC Bournemouth v Manchester City

Raheem Sterling has scored eight goals and provided two assists in seven Premier League appearances against AFC Bournemouth. The Manchester City winger has also scored in two of his three matches at Vitality Stadium.

Tottenham Hotspur v Newcastle United

Newcastle United have 21 Premier League victories against Tottenham Hotspur. Only versus Aston Villa (22) have they enjoyed more in the competition. The Magpies' 73 goals against Spurs are their most against any PL club.

Wolverhampton Wanderers v Burnley

Wolverhampton Wanderers are undefeated in their last nine Premier League matches at Molineux (W6 D3). Their most recent longer unbeaten home run in the top flight was a 10-match streak in 1979.
