Opta Stats: QPR to bring the entertainment to Villa

Charlie Austin hasn't gone more than two Premier League games without a goal since QPR were promoted
  • vs

A Southampton clean sheet and over 2.5 QPR v Aston Villa goals are among four bets that the Opta stats flag up for this weekend...

"QPR have conceded at least two goals in each of their last five Premier League games."
Recommended Bet: Back over 2.5 goals in QPR v Aston Villa @ 2.3611/8

Liverpool v Hull (Saturday, 15:00)

Hull are one of only three teams to score in every Premier League game this season

That feat puts Hull in the company of leaders Chelsea and Roberto Martinez's prolific Everton side, and they are getting progressively more dangerous, striking twice in each of their last six matches. Liverpool have managed just one clean sheet in a dozen attempts in 2014/15, yet failed to score in a mere one of their nine domestic fixtures, so both clubs should stick at least one past the opposition goalkeeper.

Recommended Bet: Back both teams to score @ 1.855/6

Southampton v Stoke (Saturday, 15:00)

Southampton have kept clean sheets in three of their last four Premier League home games

Given the instant impact enjoyed by Graziano Pelle and Dusan Tadic and last week's 8-0 destruction of Sunderland, Southampton's front line will receive much of the praise for their magnificent start. However, it is the Saints' defensive brilliance most responsible for lifting them to third. They have leaked a Premier League-low five goals in eight outings, shutting out four of their past seven foes.

Recommended Bet: Back Southampton to keep a clean sheet @ 2.35/4

Man United v Chelsea (Sunday, 16:00, Sky Sports 1)

Chelsea are the only opponents that Man United have lost more Premier League games (15) against than won (13)

This is Man United's first clash with one of last season's top four under Louis van Gaal and the omens certainly aren't too promising. They are winless in six meetings with Chelsea across all competitions and didn't score a single goal past the Blues on their most recent two visits to Old Trafford. Chelsea love mixing it with the elite, losing just once in 14 collisions with top-eight rivals in 2013/14.

Recommended Bet: Back Chelsea to win @ 2.588/5

QPR v Aston Villa (Monday, 20:00, Sky Sports 1)

QPR have conceded at least two goals in each of their last five Premier League games

Four of the five servings of Monday Night Football to date in this campaign delivered not only over 2.5 goals but over 3.5 goals and QPR appear primed to honour that tradition. In addition to shipping at a rate that would make the 2007/08 incarnation of Derby blush, Opta note that the Hoops netted twice in each of their latest two home encounters, despite obtaining a mere point in the process.

Recommended Bet: Back over 2.5 goals @ 2.3611/8
