Burnley v West Ham - 15:00
When Burnley grabbed a late 2-2 draw away to Leicester a fortnight ago, it raised more than a few eyebrows. For starters, to score in the 96th minute is just obscene by anyone's standards, even Fergie's. Secondly, after five goals without a game, for Burnley to bag two in a single outing was quite unexpected. And thirdly, of all the people to provide that late, late equaliser - Ross Wallace? Really? A midfield substitute with just three goals from his previous 50 appearances. Well that too was an eye-opener.
But perhaps we shouldn't too surprised. After all, human nature dictates that the longer we go without something we want, the more we strive for it. By the time proceedings got to the 96th minute, Burnley boss Sean Dyche must have been running out of kitchen sinks to throw. And now that the Clarets have finally got that goal monkey off their back, I suspect they'll find scoring comparatively easy. That's just one of life's little quirks. Another one though, is Sod's Law, which dictates that as they start to score more, they'll probably concede an even greater number.
West Ham, for their part, should be more than happy to provide goals, at both ends. Sam Allardyce isn't known for his entertainment value. But the numbers don't lie. And they show the Hammers' three away outings this season were all high scoring, containing 11 goals in total.

Everton v Aston Villa - 15:00
I don't know what Everton manager Roberto Martinez did to this side in the off-season, but on paper at least they have become a completely different side. Gone are the gritty displays and clean sheets, replaced instead by a string of high scoring shootouts.
Three matches at Goodison Park this season have yielded an eye-popping 18 goals. And the sad thing for Toffees' fans is that their team came unstuck in every one of those games, with them losing two and drawing one. Located now just above the relegation zone, we can expect Martinez's team to play in particularly aggressive fashion, as they look to fight their way out of the corner they put themselves in.
As for Villa, well they fluctuate between Jekyll and Hyde performances when it comes to the number of goals, with the key factor seeming to be the time at which the first goal goes in. But with Everton's need so great, and their defence looking so soft-centred, I suspect we'll get the early goal needed to turn this into another feast of fun.

QPR V Liverpool - 13:30
Nobody has taken more pleasure than myself from riding the Liverpool goalscoring fun-bus over the past couple of seasons. But the secret to any journey is knowing when to get off. And now might be an opportune time to do just that. We can of course rejoin this bus at a later stop.
Yes, Liverpool continue to score goals, despite their relative slump in form. And they continue to concede them. Indeed, their last ten Premier League away games have all produced at least three goals or more. So where's the problem?
Well my concern here, is that any expectation of goals will need to be met entirely by Liverpool. QPR simply don't score that often. Just four this season in fact. And they are likely to take a negative approach into this game in an attempt to get something from it. The problem then, is that QPR don't concede many goals. And by that, I mean that it's been 13 home games since they last conceded three goals. Ironically, their opponents that day were Liverpool. But this is a very different Reds team from last season. Brendan Rogers' stuttering side have less confidence and swagger now and could be more reserved in how they go about taking Rangers to task.

Stoke v Swansea - 16:00
This game has draw written all over it to me. The Swans are higher up the league, but it's the Potters who have home advantage and are in greater need of the points. There's no reason though to expect goals. Stoke's three home games to date have produced an average of just one goal apiece, with the home team having netted just once in 270 minutes at the Britannia Stadium.
Swansea meanwhile may sit fifth in the table, but their success has come largely at home. On the road, their record of one win, one draw, one defeat and a goal difference of minus one is hardly awe inspiring. And while 11 places may separate these sides in the table, only three points do. So the gap is much smaller than might first appear.
Swansea drew a 0-0 blank at Sunderland in their last outing. Don't be too surprised if lightning strikes twice.
