Striker Harry Kane has the chance to become the outright king of New Year's Day if he can extend his impressive scoring streak for Tottenham Hotspur against Southampton.

For more on this and all the must-know facts for Matchweek 21, read below. To see the head-to-head records and key data for the matches, click on the fixtures.

Brighton & Hove Albion v Chelsea

Tammy Abraham’s 12 Premier League goals have been worth 12 points to Chelsea this season, the joint-most along with Arsenal's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Sadio Mane of Liverpool.

Burnley v Aston Villa

Burnley have scored six goals from corners this season, second only to Arsenal's seven, while Aston Villa's eight goals conceded from corners are the most in the competition.

Newcastle United v Leicester City

Leicester City won the reverse fixture 5-0, their joint-biggest margin of victory against Newcastle United in the top flight. The only previous Premier League season that Leicester did the double over Newcastle was their title-winning campaign of 2015/16.

Southampton v Tottenham Hotspur

Harry Kane has five goals in his last three Premier League appearances on New Year’s Day, equal with Andrew Cole and Steven Gerrard. No player has more Premier League goals on that day than Kane, who can also score in a seventh consecutive match against Southampton.

Watford v Wolverhampton Wanderers

Raul Jimenez has been directly involved in 26 goals from 31 matches in all competitions this season, with 17 goals and nine assists, more than any other Premier League player and two more than the 17 goals and seven assists he recorded in 44 appearances in 2018/19.

Manchester City v Everton

Carlo Ancelotti is looking to become only the second Everton manager to win his first three Premier League matches, after Joe Royle in 1994.

Norwich City v Crystal Palace

Norwich City are bottom going into 2020 but three of the last six teams at the foot of the table going into a new year have avoided relegation: Sunderland in 2013/14, Leicester City in 2014/15 and Swansea City in 2016/17.

West Ham United v AFC Bournemouth

AFC Bournemouth have won four of their nine Premier League meetings with West Ham United, including their first in the competition, in August 2015. Against no side have they won more top-flight matches than they have versus the Hammers.

Arsenal v Manchester United

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang can become the first Arsenal player to score in three successive Premier League matches against Manchester United since Thierry Henry in November 2001.

Liverpool v Sheffield United

No goalkeeper has kept more Premier League clean sheets than the seven of Sheffield United's Dean Henderson, whose minutes-per-goal-conceded ratio of one every 107 minutes is bettered only by Liverpool's Alisson, who has conceded once every 185 minutes.
