West Brom v Arsenal (Saturday, 12:45, BT Sport 1)

Arsenal have lost none of their last seven visits to The Hawthorns in all competitions

The Gunners have won four and drawn two of their six clashes with bottom-half opponents, taking seven points from an available nine away to those teams, and have also prevailed on three of their previous five Premier League trips to The Hawthorns. West Brom have earned a mere two victories in their past 15 home league fixtures, while they have lost two of their three against top-half sides this term.

Recommended Bet: Back Arsenal to win @ 1.875/6

Man United v Hull (Saturday, 15:00)

There have been 25 goals scored in the six Premier League matches between Man United and Hull

Hull's second Premier League campaign since promotion hasn't gone as well as many suspected following their FA Cup final appearance in May and ambitious transfer campaign, but at least they entertain. The Tigers have delivered over 2.5 goals in seven of their latest 11 domestic encounters, while there have been at least four goals in each of their most recent four showdowns with Man United.

Recommended Bet: Back over 2.5 goals @ 1.674/6

West Ham v Newcastle (Saturday, 15:00)

West Ham have only won two of their last 17 Premier League matches against the Magpies

Despite the fact that West Ham are on their longest Premier League winless run since April (three games) and Newcastle are on their best streak of 2014 after five successive triumphs, the Londoners are favourites. However, as the bold trend above confirms, they have a terrible record against the Magpies, and the expected absence of key quintet Winston Reid, Mark Noble, Alex Song, Enner Valencia and Diafra Sakho further damage their chances of fixing that.

Recommended Bet: Lay West Ham to win @ 2.245/4

Sunderland v Chelsea (Saturday, 17:30, Sky Sports 1)

There have been 53 goals in the last 12 Premier League games between these two sides

Opta impart that 29 of those were scored in the past six meetings at the Stadium of Light. Chelsea have an exceptional record against Sunderland, winning all of their last nine league ventures to Wearside, yet the leaders aren't doing all the goal-getting when they collide. Indeed, the Black Cats have netted in all bar one of their latest dozen scraps with the three-time Premier League winners.

Recommended Bet: Back both teams to score @ 2.1211/10
