Six important first division matches in one day certainly make up Super Saturday.
Here are six hot stats to watch for starting at St James’s Park, home to in-form Newcastle, who host leaders Liverpool.
🏀 Newcastle vs Liverpool
The Magpies have gone ten times in the Premier League without a win over Liverpool (D4, L6), although they have managed to score in at least seven of those matches. Only one out of 53 Premier League matches between these two sides has ended 0-0.
😟 Aston Villa vs Norwich
Norwich have shipped 69 league goals this season and are now almost certain to become the first team to conceded more than 70 goals in three different Premier League campaigns. Ten goals have been scored in the first 30 minutes in the last nine Premier League home games.
🌊 Southampton vs Crystal Palace
Crystal Palace did not keep a clean sheet away from home in the Premier League against Southampton (1 win, 3, 8).
🤨 Watford vs Burnley
Watford know that failing to keep a clean sheet here would extend their 22-game winning streak at home, a feat no team has succeeded in since Queens Park Rangers in August 1973.
🔭 Wolverhampton vs Brighton
Brighton coach Graham Potter has not outdone Wolverhampton as coach (D3, L2).
📞 Leeds vs Man City
No team in Europe’s top five leagues has scored more goals in the first 15 minutes than City’s in 16. The team will hope to rely on in-form Gabriel Jesus, as they have never lost a Premier League game when they play. Registration paper (W43, D3).
Enjoy the action! It all started in the North East of England when Liverpool hope to overtake Man City, for a few hours at least, as they target three points against Eddie Howe’s Magpies.
