ASTON VILLA VS SWANSEA

Aston Villa have not won in the Barclays Premier League since the opening day of the season at Bournemouth and last won at home in the league in May against West Ham. But after a four-game unbeaten start, Swansea have taken two points from their last five outings in the league.

LEICESTER CITY VS CRYSTAL PALACE

Leicester's games at the King Power Stadium have seen goals in abundance with 20 scored there (10 by Leicester), the most in the Premier League. Palace lost 3-1 at home to West Ham last Saturday, but they have won three and lost just one of their four away games so far. In three Premier League visits to Leicester, they have won two and drawn one.

NORWICH CITY VS WEST BROM

Norwich City have dropped from eighth place in the Barclays Premier League to 16th following a run of four games without a win, and they have conceded

20 goals, the most in the division. But West Bromwich Albion have scored only seven goals, the fewest in the top flight.

STOKE CITY VS

WATFORD

Stoke City are on a roll; after six games without a win in the Barclays Premier League, the Potters have won their last three - four including the Capital Cup - and bid to claim a fourth straight league victory for the first time since December 2011. Watford, meanwhile, are seeking only their third win of the season in the league and first in four games.

BOURNEMOUTH VS TOTTENHAM

Previous results point to a game with few goals. Games at the Vitality Stadium have produced just seven, four from Bournemouth and three by the opposition. And Spurs have scored just four and conceded four on the road. Tottenham have not lost in the league since the season's opening day, but have drawn five of their last eight.

LIVERPOOL VS SOUTHAMPTON

Liverpool have won their last three games against Southampton, but the last five clashes between these teams at Anfield have seen the winners claim the points by only a one-goal advantage. Overall, Southampton have won just three times at Anfield in the Premier League while losing nine and drawing four.
