🌞 Sunday 28th

🤨 Brentford vs Everton

No side has conceded more Premier League goals in the first half of matches this season than Brentford's 11, with the Bees letting in the highest share before half-time - 65%. However, Everton has scored just four first-half goals this season, a total that exceeds only Aston Villa's total of three.

🧤 Burnley vs Tottenham

Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope has conceded 14 goals against Spurs in the Premier League, only against Manchester City (17) and Chelsea (15) has he conceded more.
