From Newcastle's defensive generosity to Cristiano's strange record against West Ham in the past, game week 4 promises plenty of interesting subplots.
Here are ten things to look out for this weekend which you can also use to impress your friends. Let's see how many of those subplots unfold before our eyes.
🥅 Newcastle vs Leeds
Newcastle has conceded more goals than any other side in the Premier League this season (12), while Leeds have faced the most shots on target (28).
🇰🇷 Wolves vs Brentford
Hwang Hee-chan came off the bench to score on his Premier League debut for Wolverhampton Wanderers last time out. No player has ever scored in both of their first two appearances for the club in the competition.
🤨 Burnley vs Arsenal
Burnley is winless in their last 12 home league matches (D6 L6), their longest run without a victory at Turf Moor in their league history.
🇸🇳 Liverpool vs Crystal Palace
Sadio Mané has scored in each of his last eight Premier League appearances against Crystal Palace. No player has ever scored in nine consecutive matches against a single opponent in the competition.
🧙♂️ Man City vs Southampton
City's new signing Jack Grealish has been directly involved in more shots than any other player in the Premier League this season (21 – eight shots, 13 chances created). Across the league, only Liverpool's Trent Alexander-Arnold (20) has created more chances.
🟡 Norwich vs Watford
Norwich has lost each of their last 14 Premier League matches, scoring just twice and conceding 35 goals in this run.
⚽️ Aston Villa vs Everton
Aston Villa striker Danny Ings has scored five Premier League goals against Everton – against no side has he scored more in the competition. The Toffees are the only team Ings has scored against with all three of his previous EPL clubs - Burnley, Liverpool and Southampton.
🦊 Brighton vs Leicester
If selected, Jamie Vardy will become the first Leicester City player to reach 250 Premier League appearances. He’s the Foxes' leading appearance-maker, goal scorer (120) and assists provider (39) in the competition.
😮 West Ham vs Man United
Cristiano Ronaldo was involved in six goals in his last four Premier League appearances for Man United against West Ham in his first spell in the competition (five goals, one assist). However, only against Chelsea (four) has the Portuguese ended on the losing side in the Premier League more than he has against the Hammers (three).
🕰 Spurs vs Chelsea
Chelsea has only conceded one goal in their last five Premier League meetings with Tottenham, and that was an Antonio Rudiger own goal in a 2-1 Chelsea win at Stamford Bridge in February 2020. The Blues have won each of their last five away league London derbies but they’ve never won six in a row on the road before in their league history.
