The Opta trends speak of a goal for Romelu Lukaku, a win for Arsenal and unders for West Ham and Stoke...


"Arsenal have lost just two of their last 14 Premier League away games (W10 D2)."

Recommended Bet: Back Arsenal to win at Aston Villa @ 1.618/13

Norwich v Everton (Saturday, 12:45, Sky Sports 1)

Romelu Lukaku has scored nine goals in his last nine Premier League appearances for Everton

The most in-form striker in the Premier League - sorry Jamie Vardy, you're only as good as your last performance - has scored in six successive games and would be absolutely gutted if he surrendered his longest streak in English football to a side who have kept one top-flight clean sheet all season.

Opta pay tribute to the Belgian's overall record in two-and-a-half years at Goodison Park, noting that he has netted 50 times in 100 competitive Everton appearances. That tally has been spread across 20 different opponents, but Norwich aren't one of those, so this is a chance to make a 21st enemy.

Recommended Bet: Back Lukaku to score @ 2.526/4


West Ham v Stoke (Saturday, 15:00)

Stoke's 15 Premier League games have seen just 27 goals scored this season

This is the lowest total of any Premier League club in 2015/16 and one of several Stoke-specific Opta insights pointing to under 2.5 goals. The others are that they have achieved six clean sheets in eight league matches, while firing a mere six goals and conceding only nine over their past ten away days.

The Potters' most recent three trips to the Boleyn Ground all served up two strikes or fewer too, and Slaven Bilic is gradually warming to the low-scoring theme - injuries to his best attackers doubtless helping. Four of West Ham's last five league fixtures ended in unders, compared to one in nine prior to that.

Recommended Bet: Back under 2.5 goals @ 1.758/11


Aston Villa v Arsenal (Sunday, 13:30, Sky Sports 1)

Arsenal have lost just two of their last 14 Premier League away games (W10 D2)

Given that this contests pits 20th against second, 1.618/13 seems a pretty exceptional price on the latter demonstrating why 18 places divide the teams. No side have won more than their five road clashes this term, whereas Aston Villa have collected two points from their last eight home league matches.

The Gunners arrive in the midlands on an enormous high following their magnificent 3-0 triumph at Olympiakos to once more reach the Champions League knockout rounds, and Opta reveal that they are unbeaten in 16 league visits to Villa Park. There have been just three away runs longer than that in Football League history.

Recommended Bet: Back Arsenal to win @ 1.618/13
