Fixtures on the 1st of July 2020:




Bournemouth vs Newcastle
Kick off: 18:00, 1/7/2020


  • Two defeats since the Premier League (PL) hiatus makes it just three wins across Bournemouth’s last 20 league matches (D2, L15). Lacking at both ends of the pitch, the ‘Cherries’ have now gone 14 straight PL matches without a clean sheet.
  • At least offering up some entertainment, six of Bournemouth’s last seven competitive home matches have featured at least three goals. They’ve scored the first goal in just a third of their PL home matches so far, and have been in front at HT just four times (26.67%).
  • Newcastle, meanwhile, extended their run to four unbeaten PL matches (W2, D2), seemingly leaving the relegation scrap behind. They kept a clean sheet in three of those matches, conceding just a single goal. Across the PL season, no team has been involved in more matches featuring under 1.5 goals than the ‘Magpies’ (12 - 38.71%).
  • Newcastle’s 18 matches drawn at half time is a PL high, yet away from home their two FT draws rank among the least in the league. There’s been at least one first-half goal scored in 73.33% of Newcastle's away PL matches, as have each of the last four H2Hs at any venue.
  • Players to watch: Bournemouth are unbeaten in four PL fixtures when Joshua King has scored (W2, D2), with his last three coming in home matches. Meanwhile, Allan Saint-Maximin has scored in two of Newcastle’s last three PL games; all three of his league goals this season opened the scoring.
  • Stat attack: Bournemouth have won just one of seven PL home matches entered as favourites (14.29%) this season.
  • Four straight PL H2Hs have featured over 2.5 goals and both teams scoring.
  • Across the last four PL H2Hs, Newcastle ‘lead’ the yellow cards count 10:5.
  • Newcastle’s eight most recent PL goals all arrived in the second half.

Everton vs Leicester City
Kick off: 18:00, 1/7/2020


  • Everton have lost just two of their previous ten Premier League (PL) matches (W4, D4, L2) and boast a record of two consecutive clean sheets since the restart. Despite this, they’ve still conceded a total of eight goals across their previous five PL matches (HT: D4, L1), five of which arrived in the first half.
  • Recent PL home form has been impressive for Everton, and they are undefeated in eight league games at Goodison Park (W4, D4). Only one visiting side has scored over 1.5 goals against the Blues in that run, and each has failed to score the game’s opening goal, if any.
  • Leicester City travel to Merseyside having won just two of their previous ten competitive matches (W2, D4, L4). Despite boasting the third-highest goal average in the PL (with 1.9 goals per game) they have scored over 1.5 goals in just one of their previous eight competitive matches. So too did they fail to score at all in five of those fixtures.
  • The ‘Foxes’ (LEI) are, however, undefeated in their two previous competitive visits to Goodison Park (W1, D1), scoring the opening goal in each. They’ve also lost just one of their seven away matches vs sides currently below 11th in the table (W5, D1, L1), scoring 2+ goals in each victory.
  • Players to watch: Everton’s Richarlison scored in the first half of the previous PL meeting against Leicester, and his last PL goal vs Arsenal also came before half-time.
  • Leicester’s Jamie Vardy has netted in each of his previous two away PL matches against Everton. Both strikes arrived after half-time. One goal here will mark his 100th in the PL.
  • Stat attack: Everton have opened the scoring in six (75%) of their last eight home league games.
  • Leicester have scored in 11 consecutive visits to Goodison Park.
  • Seven of the previous 11 H2H matches at Goodison Park produced over 3.5 goals.

Arsenal vs Norwich City
Kick off: 18:00 1/7/2020


  • Arsenal won at the third attempt post-restart, taking their six-game league form to: W4, L2. The last three of those victories saw the ‘Gunners’ win the second half 1-0, with the most recent of those particular second-half goals being scored by Joe Willock. In turn, half of Arsenal’s last six goals scored during a Premier League (PL) win have come from a player aged under 22.
  • The hosts are unbeaten in league action at the Emirates Stadium in 2020 (W4, D1), with three yielding a clean sheet and seeing Arsenal average 2.33 unanswered goals per match. However, those three clean-sheet wins each produced one goalless half.
  • Since the start of December 2019, Norwich have taken just two points of a possible 24 (D2, L6) on the road. Norwich are also without a goal from open play in six PL away matches, and three of the last four defeats therein saw them lose the first half 1-0.
  • Norwich’s first two post-restart games in the league each witnessed a goalless first half, followed by second halves lost by an average of 2.0 unanswered goals, with 1.5 goals conceded on average inside the 46th-60th minute period.
  • Players to watch: Eddie Nketiah opened the scoring in Arsenal’s first post-lockdown win. Both of his prior PL goals this term have come in the 16th-30th minute period.
  • Norwich jewel Todd Cantwell equalised in the Canaries’ last outing. His only away league goal this term is also his only matchwinner (and sole second-half PL goal) in 2019/20.
  • Stat attack: Four of Arsenal’s last six PL home wins to yield a 2+ goal margin have seen them open the scoring inside 15 minutes.
  • Going back to October 2019, none of Arsenal’s last five PL home wins have seen them concede in the second half.
  • If counting only Tue-Thu, Norwich have won just one (D6, L14) of their last 21 midweek PL matches.

West Ham vs Chelsea
Kick off: 20:15, 1/7/2020


  • West Ham are in freefall on the back of a pitiful league record of W1, D2, L8 since beating Bournemouth 4-0 on New Year’s Day. Frustratingly, they have held opponents goalless up to the hour mark in each of their last three defeats (GF 0, GA 5). In turn, West Ham have also dropped an average of 1.5 points beyond the hour mark across their last four league defeats.
  • With a loss rate of 71.43% from home league games entered as outsiders, West Ham have seen three of their last four Premier League (PL) home defeats come by a two-goal margin. They conceded five of their last six ‘goals against’ within that trio beyond the hour mark.
  • Three of Chelsea’s last four league wins (and 75% of their last four PL away wins) have produced 2-1 scorelines, with each of that trio producing two second-half goals. That first v second-half disparity is lengthened away from home, with five of the Blues’ last six PL away goals coming after the break.
  • Further to that, first halves have averaged just 0.5 goals per match across Chelsea’s last four PL road trips. Chelsea’s last six PL away wins tell a different story though, with four (66.67%) of them seeing the ‘Blues’ open the scoring inside the first half-hour of play.
  • Players to watch: Aaron Cresswell gave West Ham a shock win in the last H2H. A West Ham win would mark their first PL ‘double’ over Chelsea since 2002/03.
  • Attacking midfielder Ross Barkley netted Chelsea’s winner in Sunday’s FA Cup victory. Remarkably, his two prior PL away goals for Chelsea have each been ‘Goal 2’ (for 2-0) in the 57th minute of their respective matches.
  • Stat attack: West Ham have conceded exactly twice beyond the hour mark in each of their post-restart games.
  • Eleven of the last 12 league H2Hs have produced under 1.5 first-half goals.
  • The HT result and margin has been replicated at FT in each of Chelsea’s last five PL away games vs West Ham.

Fixtures on the 2nd of July 2020:


Sheffield United vs Tottenham
Kick off: 18:00, 02/07/2020


  • Sheffield United are winless in their last four matches (D1, L3), and have failed to score in three consecutive Premier League (PL) games. They’ve now conceded after the 60th minute in all nine PL losses this term, although three of the previous four PL goals they scored came before half-time.
  • The ‘Blades’ have kept a clean sheet in six of their seven PL home victories this season; four ended 1-0. They remain without a PL home goal inside the first 15 minutes however, but they’ve not conceded here after the 80th minute either. Furthermore, Chris Wilder’s team have failed to score in four home league losses running.
  • Tottenham Hotspur ended a seven-match winless streak in all competitions (D3, L4) with a 2-0 win over West Ham United. They’ve scored in eight straight PL clashes, averaging 1.75 goals per game across that period. Additionally, their previous two matches featured a goal beyond 80 minutes, and they’ve outscored opponents 9-6 after the 75th minute this PL campaign.
  • A worry for Jose Mourinho is that Spurs have won only four of their past 22 competitive away fixtures (D10, L8). Under his management, they’ve retained one away clean sheet overall, whilst three of their last four away games contained over 2.5 goals. All three PL away wins under Mourinho included over 2.5 goals and both teams scoring.
  • Players to watch: Sheff Utd captain Billy Sharp has scored a first-half goal in their previous two PL home wins. Spurs striker Harry Kane netted his latest two goals after the 80th minute, with five of his six most recent PL goals arriving after half-time.
  • Stat attack: Sheff Utd have conceded first in 54.84% of their PL encounters this season (17).
  • Spurs have an inconsistent PL away record when scoring first (W2, D2, L2).
  • Sheff Utd have failed to beat any PL opponent currently above them in the table this season (D4, L6).

Manchester City vs Liverpool
Kick off: 20:15, 02/07/2020


  • With seven rounds left of the Premier League (PL) season, Manchester City welcome newly-crowned champions Liverpool to the Etihad. Goals and cards look a possibility if the last six PL H2Hs are anything to go - there’s been an average of 4.5 yellow cards and 3.5 goals per meeting across that period!
  • City have won six of their last seven PL home matches (D1), scoring at least twice in all seven games, whilst winning four of them ‘to nil’ and covering a -1.5 handicap. City games have averaged 3.55 total goals per PL match so far (any venue), with 74.19% of their overall matches featuring over 2.5 goals, and 48.39% seeing over 3.5.
  • Liverpool travel here without a win or even a goal in four straight competitive away matches (D1, L3), although their 0.6 goals conceded on average per PL road fixture is unrivalled in the league.
  • The visitors might rely on historical momentum though. Since Chelsea lost at West Bromwich in 2015, newly-crowned PL champions have gone W8, D2, L0 during the remainder of the season. Furthermore, Liverpool may gain motivation from the fact they are still gunning for five different PL records: most points, most wins, most home wins, away wins, and biggest win margin (in points).
  • Players to watch: Kevin de Bruyne (MCI) has three goals in four competitive matches since the restart - two were penalties. Meanwhile, Mohamed Salah (LIV) has four goals in eight matches against City, and hunts his third Golden Boot award in a row.
  • Stat attack: Just one of City’s last six competitive matches saw both teams score.
  • City have scored at least one first-half goal in three straight PL home matches - and the two most recent home H2Hs.
  • Liverpool have gone on to win all 21 PL matches in which they led at half-time.
