Aston Villa

Dean Smith's side would become the first in the Premier League to complete a rare set of seven victories if they are able to beat Spurs

Aston Villa's seven Premier League victories this season have remarkably come on six different days of the week.

They now have a chance to achieve a first in the history of the competition, and a feat that has only been managed once before in the top flight, by Sunday's opponents Tottenham Hotspur.

For more on this and all the must-know facts for the second set of Matchweek 26 fixtures, read below. To see the head-to-head records and key data for the matches, click on the fixtures.

Wolverhampton Wanderers v Leicester City

Wolverhampton Wanderers have scored a league-high 20 per cent of their Premier League goals from outside the box this season, with seven out of 35. But only Sheffield United, with one, have conceded fewer such goals than Leicester City’s two.

Southampton v Burnley

Burnley can complete the league double over Southampton for the first time since 1946/47 in the second tier, having beaten Saints 3-0 at Turf Moor on the opening weekend.

Aston Villa v Tottenham Hotspur

A victory for Aston Villa on Sunday would make them just the second team in English top-flight history to win a league match on all seven days of the week in a season, after Spurs in 1986/87.

Arsenal v Newcastle United

Arsenal are unbeaten in all of their 25 February home league matches at Emirates Stadium, winning 20. They have also won their last seven Premier League home fixtures against Newcastle United.

Chelsea v Manchester United

Manchester United can secure their first Premier League double over Chelsea, having won August’s reverse fixture 4-0, but have won just one of their last 17 trips to Stamford Bridge in the competition, back in 2012.

Manchester City v West Ham United

Pep Guardiola has won all eight of his meetings with West Ham United in all competitions, his joint-best 100 per cent record against a club in his managerial career, along with his eight against Malaga and Watford.
