Sheffield United v West Ham

London sides have lost their last seven Premier League matches against Sheffield United at Bramall Lane, while West Ham United have won only one of their last 10 fixtures in Yorkshire (D3 L6).

Crystal Palace v Arsenal

Crystal Palace are unbeaten in three league meetings with Arsenal (W1 D2) and can go four without defeat for the first time, but the Gunners have lost only one of their last 14 away league matches at Palace (W7 D6).

Chelsea v Burnley

After winning at Burnley in the reverse fixture, Chelsea can do the double over the Clarets for the first time since 2009/10.

Everton v Brighton

The home side have never lost in the five Premier League meetings between Everton and Brighton & Hove Albion (W4 D1). The Toffees have won both matches at Goodison Park and Brighton have never won at Everton in any competition (D2 L5).

Leicester v Southampton

Since losing 9-0 to Leicester City on 25 October, Southampton have conceded only 13 goals in 11 matches. During that period only Liverpool, with seven, and the Foxes, with 11, have let in fewer.

Man Utd v Norwich City

Manchester United have lost three of their last five matches against teams starting the day in the relegation zone (W1 D1). They were defeated 2-0 at Watford in December in their last match versus the bottom club.

Wolves v Newcastle United

Newcastle United head coach Steve Bruce is aiming to claim victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers with a seventh different club. Wolves would be only the second opponent he has defeated with seven teams, along with Blackburn Rovers.
