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.

The tea-time kick-off in the Premier League today sees West Ham United host Everton at the London Stadium.

* Everton have kept 3 clean sheets in their last 4 matches.

The final match up in the Premier League today is the 200th league meeting between Everton and Liverpool at Goodison Park.

* The first Merseyside Derby of the season was decided by Liverpool’s late late winner from a mistake by Toffees keeper Jordan Pickford.

* Everton won last time out against Cardiff, but that have been in poor league form generally with 4 wins in their last 12 matches, including 8 defeats.
* Liverpool have won 2 of their last 5, drawing the remainder.
* If Mo Salah scores it will be his 50th PL goals for Liverpool, in just his 65th appearance.

There are three Premier League matches kicking off at 7.45pm tonight, involving several clubs that are in, or just outside of, the relegation zone.

Wins tonight could help some sides put distance between them and the drop zone, but likewise a loss could pull them right into the fight.

Here are the factz you need to know:

Cardiff City v Everton

  • Cardiff haven’t beaten Everton in a league match since 1956. However, Everton haven’t beaten Cardiff in Cardiff since 1929.
  • The Bluebirds aren’t in great form, having lost 3 of their last 5 matches.
  • But Everton are in worse form, having lost their last 3 PL matches and 8 of their last 11.
  • Cardiff have problems defensively – they have conceded 28 goals at home this season – the most in the division.
  • However, Everton’s problems are at the other end of the pitch, having scored just 3 goals in their past 5 PL matches.

Huddersfield Town v Wolverhampton Wanderers

  • Huddersfield beat Wolves in the reverse fixture – but since then the Terriers have lost 13 matches and drawn 1 in the PL.
  • Meanwhile Wolves are unbeaten in their last 5 PL matches, with 3 wins and 2 draws.
  • Goalscoring remains Huddersfield’s main problem – just 14 in 27 PL matches.
  • Raul Jimenez is the man Huddersfield need to stop. The Wolves forward has scored 10 goals and provided 5 assists this season.
  • Huddersfield have lost their last 7 in the PL – the record number of consecutive defeats in the Premier League is 10, held by Sunderland in 2003 and 2005.

Leicester City v Brighton & Hove Albion

  • The sides drew 1-1 at the Amex Stadium earlier in the season, with Jamie Vardy equalising for the Foxes in the 79th minute – and after James Maddison had been sent off after 28 minutes.
  • Leicester have lost their last 4 PL matches at home – form that helped to get Claude Puel the sack earlier this week.
  • But Brighton are out of form – they have lost 7 of their last 11 in the PL, with just a solitary win in that run.
  • If Glenn Murray scores, it will be his 100th goal for Brighton.
  • Despite not winning in 6 matches, Leicester have scored in all but one of those games.
