The Opta stats suggest that Everton won't win and Aston Villa won't score, but Christian Eriksen should...

"The Villans have failed to score in any of their last three Premier League games against the Magpies."

Recommended Bet: Back Newcastle to keep a clean sheet against Aston Villa @ 2.8415/8

Everton v Leicester (Saturday, 15:00)

The Foxes are unbeaten in their last 11 Premier League away games, winning seven in that run

Leicester have been exceptional all term and are in their best form of all right now, taking 19 points from the last available 21, so it would be tough to justify anyone being favourites against them, let alone an Everton side on a sequence of two league victories in nine being as short as 2.111/10 to prevail.

Claudio Ranieri's men have lost once all season and, even historically, when the gap between the pair was wider, they were defeated in just two of their last 13 clashes with the Toffees. The hosts haven't won against a team higher than 12th in 2015/16, only conquering the bottom two since October.

Recommended Bet: Lay Everton to win @ 2.1211/10


Southampton v Tottenham (Saturday, 15:00)

Christian Eriksen has scored three goals in his last three Premier League games against Southampton

Eriksen was a specialist at scoring past Southampton back when they were the second stingiest club in the entire division, so imagine how much fun awaits him against a defence who have kept one home clean sheet in their previous eight attempts, conceding 15 times in the process.

The one thing that the Dane enjoys more than Saints sabotage is rippling nets on the road. His most recent seven Spurs strikes all arrived not simply away from White Hart Lane but outside of London entirely, much as four of his six goals prior to that did too.

Recommended Bet: Back Eriksen to score @ 5.24/1


Newcastle v Aston Villa (Saturday, 17:30, Sky Sports 1)

The Villans have failed to score in any of their last three Premier League games against the Magpies

The Premier League's bottom club are also winless in eight meetings with Newcastle, and there is surely nothing that says you are outstaying your Premier League welcome more damningly than those two awful statistics.

Aston Villa improvement under Remi Garde hasn't been too easy to trace, with them firing blanks in three of his five top-flight fixtures in charge, a significantly worse rate than the four in 11 overseen before his debut in the dugout.

The phrases "Newcastle" and "clean sheet" may seem like strange bedfellows, yet the most miraculous element of the Magpies' sudden transformation is that they have been breached only once in their past two matches, shutting out three of their latest six adversaries.

Recommended Bet: Back Newcastle to keep a clean sheet @ 2.8415/8
