Premier League Matchday 14: City out to extend Spurs' losing streak
Manchester City will look to inflict a fourth straight Premier League loss on threadbare Tottenham in Matchday 14's standout clash.
Prior to that, leaders Arsenal entertain Wolves while top-four hopefuls Newcastle and Manchester United face off on Tyneside.
Here are all the key facts and stats ahead of all 10 top-flight games.
Arsenal vs Wolves (Saturday, 3pm)
Wolves will look to cause a shock against the Premier League leaders for a second time this season when they head to the Emirates.
Gary O'Neil's side stunned Manchester City when they sat at the summit in September but have lost their last four against Arsenal, failing to keep a clean sheet in 18 recent meetings.
Goals look assured here. The Gunners have scored in their last 31 clashes with the men from Molineux, while the visitors have netted in every game since the opening day.
Brentford vs Luton (Saturday, 3pm)
Luton can build on last week's surprise win over Crystal Palace when they visit inconsistent Brentford.
The Hatters have still not kept a clean sheet this term but will fancy their chances against the Bees, who blanked in their last two — they have not lost three league games without scoring since 2012 when playing in League One.
Thomas Frank's men do usually manage to negotiate promoted sides though having won their last five such clashes.
Burnley vs Sheffield United (Saturday, 3pm)
Struggling Burnley and Sheffield United face off in what looks to be one of the first real six-pointers of the season.
Vincent Kompany's Clarets could become the first team in English Football League history to lose their first eight home league games, though they have won four of their last five meetings with the Blades at Turf Moor.
Though neither of these sides are prolific, they have yet to register a clean sheet between them and lead the division for goals conceded (Sheffield United 34, Burnley 32).
Nottingham Forest vs Everton (Saturday, 5.30pm, Sky Sports)
After drawing both of their meetings last term, Nottingham Forest and Everton look poised for another close encounter at the City Ground.
Steve Cooper's hosts were eight unbeaten on their own patch prior to last weekend's 3-2 loss to Brighton, though they face a Toffees side here who have won three of their last four road trips.
No team has a bigger discrepancy between their goals scored (14) and expected goals (20.6) than the visitors, who also lead the league for most games without a goal (six).
Newcastle vs Manchester United (Saturday, 8pm, TNT Sports)
Newcastle will hope to beat Manchester United in consecutive league games for the first time in 51 years on Saturday evening.
The Red Devils have only won one of their last five meetings with the Toon in all competitions — last year's Carabao Cup final — though they have won their last three Premier League matches without conceding.
Meanwhile, Eddie Howe's men have won five straight at St James' Park, with in-form Anthony Gordon notching an impressive six goal contributions (four goals, two assists) in his last seven league outings.
Bournemouth vs Aston Villa (Sunday, 2pm)
Improving Bournemouth have a surprisingly fine record against high-flying Aston Villa heading into their Sunday meeting.
The Cherries have won four of the pair's six Premier League meetings and have injected new life into their campaign, winning three of their last four having gone 13 without victory before that upturn.
But Villa are a different beast this term, with only Manchester City scoring more than their 31 Premier League goals so far while their 22 top-flight wins in 2023 are already double what they managed last year.
Chelsea vs Brighton (Sunday, 2pm)
Chelsea and Brighton meet with both still seeking out the consistency that could see them challenge for continental qualification.
The Blues have excelled in flashes under Mauricio Pochettino but have only won one of their last five league games, while Brighton snapped a six-match winless streak last time out.
Both sides must improve defensively. The hosts have shipped four in their last two outings while Brighton are one of only four sides in the division still without a clean sheet — though they have also scored in every outing.
Liverpool vs Fulham (Sunday, 2pm)
Recent history suggests in-form Liverpool are unlikely to come unstuck against a Fulham side they usually have the better of.
The Reds have lost just one of the last 10 Premier League meetings between the two — winning seven of those — while the Cottagers are winless in their last six away matches this season.
Even if the hosts fall behind, they are unlikely to panic. No side has rescued more points from losing positions this term than Jurgen Klopp's men (12).
West Ham vs Crystal Palace (Sunday, 2pm, Sky Sports)
West Ham must find a way to snap their surprisingly rotten recent record against city rivals Crystal Palace.
The Eagles have only won two of their last 16 London derbies but both of those successes were against the Hammers, while they are unbeaten in four trips to the London Stadium (two wins, two draws).
Tomas Soucek has now scored late winners for David Moyes' men in consecutive matches — no player has scored three straight winning goals after the 86th minute in Premier League history.
Manchester City vs Tottenham (Sunday, 4.30pm, Sky Sports)
Tottenham remain plagued by absentees but have enjoyed playing Manchester City more than most sides in recent times.
Impressively, Spurs have won five of their last seven Premier League meetings with the champions, with Pep Guardiola losing more games to the North Londoners than any other English side (six times).
Yet it is no secret Ange Postecoglou's men are struggling with injuries and despite taking the lead in their last three league outings, they have gone on to lose every time.
