1. Leicester have won 1 of their last 18 league trips to Manchester United (D5 L12), claiming victory in January 1998 courtesy of a Tony Cottee winner.

2. Jose Mourinho has suffered 12 defeats in his last 23 league games as a manager – his previous 12 league losses came over a period of 110 games. Meanwhile, the Portuguese has only suffered 3 consecutive league defeats once before (at Chelsea between October-November 2015).

3. Bournemouth (vs Everton) have won just 2 of their last 13 Premier League matches (D2 L9), and during this run they’ve only scored more than a single goal once.

4. Liverpool (vs Hull) have lost just 1 of their last 14 Premier League games at Anfield (W7 D6) – a 0-1 defeat to Manchester United in January (the only home league match in which they've failed to score under Jurgen Klopp).

5. The Reds have lost just 1 of their last 39 Premier League home games against newly promoted sides (1-2 vs Blackpool in October 2010), winning 29 and drawing 9 of these matches.

6. Middlesbrough have lost only 1 of their last 11 home Premier League games against Tottenham (1-2 in April 2007) – but Spurs have won 22 of their last 24 Premier League games (D2) against newly promoted sides since losing 1-0 to QPR in April 2012.

7. Since the start of 2014/15, Harry Kane has missed just 4 Premier League games for Tottenham. They’ve failed to win any of them and scored just twice (D1 L3).

12. Arsenal are winless in their last 9 Premier League meetings with Chelsea since a 5-3 win at Stamford Bridge in October 2011. Only against Liverpool have they had a longer such run in the competition (12 between 1994 and 2000).
