The Opta stats point to a red card at Old Trafford, Tottenham win at The Hawthorns and a Daniel Sturridge goal at St James' Park...

"Daniel Sturridge has bagged six Premier League goals against Newcastle; more than past any other side."

Recommended Bet: Back Sturridge to score in Newcastle v Liverpool @ 2.245/4

Man United v West Ham (Saturday, 15:00)

Both meetings between these two sides last season saw a man sent off

Even though West Ham failed to capitalise on either occasion with a win, stretching their Premier League winless run against these opponents to 13 games, it was a Man United player who saw red both times: Wayne Rooney at Old Trafford and Luke Shaw at the Boleyn Ground.

Dismissals in contests featuring the east Londoners are even more common now than they were then, particularly when they are doing the travelling. Their last six away league fixtures delivered five sendings off: two for members of their squad and three for those belonging to the hosts.

Recommended Bet: Back there to be a sending off @ 4.84/1


West Brom v Tottenham (Saturday, 15:00)

West Brom picked up just two points in their last five Premier League home matches against Spurs

Some punters might be reluctant to back Tottenham at odds as short as 1.9110/11 given that West Brom defeated Arsenal last time out at The Hawthorns, but the trends indicate that result to have been an anomaly. The Baggies lost their four other clashes with top-seven teams and haven't beaten anyone else higher than 12th.

The Lilywhites arrive in the Black Country on the longest sequence without a reverse of their Premier League existence - 13 games - and they have taken seven points from a possible nine away to bottom-half clubs in 2015/16, following on from similarly formidable figures of 26 from 30 last term.

Recommended Bet: Back Tottenham to win @ 1.9110/11


Newcastle v Liverpool (Sunday, 16:00, Sky Sports 1)

Daniel Sturridge has bagged six Premier League goals against Newcastle; more than past any other side

Injuries may have severely halted Sturridge's progress over the last year or so but, whenever he makes it onto the pitch, it is so easy to forget because his quality has been unaffected. In his four appearances to have lasted at least 20 minutes this season, he has rewarded Liverpool with four goals.

Adding to that tally should prove a straightforward task against Newcastle, partly due to him striking four times in his most recent three collisions with them and also owing to the fact that the Magpies have the joint-worst defensive record in the division, leaking 2.14 times per outing on average.

Recommended Bet: Back Sturridge to score @ 2.245/4
