"Wigan have won just twice at home all season, fewer than any other Premier League club."

Though Wigan have shown signs of life in recent weeks, the Opta stats suggest they will be powerless to stop Manchester United collecting all three points...

Blackburn v Liverpool (Tuesday, 20:00. Sky Sports 1)
Liverpool have lost six of the last seven Premier League away games including the last four in a row
Kenny Dalglish's side have taken just nine points from 13 games in 2012, only basement boys Wolves have fewer. And though Blackburn have lost their last three league outings, they have never lost four in a row under Steve Kean. Additionally, Rovers have won three of their last six league clashes at Ewood Park and they won this fixture 3-1 last season.

Manchester City v West Brom (Wednesday, 19:45)
Only one visiting side of the last 17 to play at the Etihad Stadium has stopped Man City from scoring two or more goals
Of their 16 league matches at home this season, City have scored three or more on 12 occasions, netting exactly three in nine encounters. The Baggies meanwhile have kept just one clean sheet in their last 35 league games on their travels and have taken just a solitary point from the last nine available away from home.

Wigan v Manchester United (Wednesday, 19:45)
The Latics have failed to score in eight of their last nine Premier League games against the Red Devils, including the last five in a row
Manchester United have kept five successive clean sheets in the league and have won each of their last eight. Wigan however have won just twice at home all season, fewer than any other Premier League club. And they have scored just six goals in their last ten Premier League games at the DW Stadium.

QPR v Swansea (Wednesday, 20:00, Sky Sports 1)
Swansea have lost their last three league games, their worst run of the campaign
And Brendan Rodgers' side have conceded seven and scored just once in the process. What's more, their record against Premier League strugglers is none too impressive, having won just two of their six clashes with sides currently in the bottom five. QPR meanwhile have taken seven points from the last nine available, including back-to-back victories against Champions League-chasing Arsenal and Liverpool.
