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.

* 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.
