There are just 4 matches kicking off at the traditional 3pm on Saturday slot in the Premier League this week. 

It’ll be all eyes on the relegation scrap today as all of those with fears of going down are playing, so there are some cliched 6-pointers happening.

Here are the factz you need to know:

Brighton & Hove Albion v AFC Bournemouth 

* Brighton have won just 2 of their last 11 PL matches.
* Bournemouth are similarly out of form: they have won 1 of their last 9 matches and lost 10 of their last 11 away from home.
* Brighton have scored just 17 goals at home this season – only Crystal Palace and Huddersfield Town have scored fewer.
* However, Bournemouth have conceded 37 goals on their travels, only Fulham have let in more.

* Bournemouth have to be wary of Brighton’s set-pieces – they’ve scored 18 goals from dead ball situations, second only to Liverpool.

Burnley v Cardiff City

* Burnley won the reverse fixture earlier in the season.
* The Clarets have won their last 2 matches, having lost their previous four.
* Meanwhile Cardiff have lost 5 of their last 6 PL matches, winning the other.
* Burnley aren’t great at home – they’ve lost 8 PL matches at Turf Moor this season so far.

* But then Cardiff aren’t good on their travels either – winning just 8 points. Only Fulham and Huddersfield have won fewer.

Fulham v Everton

* Three second half goals took Everton to a comfortable 3-0 win at Goodison Park in the reverse fixture.
* Fulham have conceded two or more goals in each of their past 13 PL matches – that’s a top-flight record.
* Everton have won their last 3 matches without conceding a goal.
* The Cottagers have lost their last 9 PL matches in a row.

* Everton have won 3 away matches this year – another today will match their entire 2018 total.

Southampton v Wolverhampton Wanderers

* Wolves eased to a 2-0 win in the reverse fixture back in September.
* Southampton have won 3 and lost 3 in their last 6 PL matches.
* Wolves are looking to complete just their second league double of the season. They’ve already beaten West Ham twice.
* Saints have scored in each of their last 11 PL matches at St Mary’s.
* Keeping a lead is Southampton’s main problem – they’ve dropped 23 points from winning positions.
