There's a big weekend of Premier League action coming up:

 

It's the end of an era as Arsene Wenger faces Man United for the last time this weekend. Plus can Harry Kane hunt down Mo Salah in the race for the Golden Boot as Spurs host Watford at Wembley?

 

But before the matches kick off, we've got some fun facts about this week's fixtures:

 

Liverpool v Stoke

Alan Shearer, Cristiano Ronaldo, Luis Suarez and Mo Salah share the record of 31 goals scored in a 38 game Premier League season. Salah needs just one goal from Liverpool's remaining three fixtures to hold the record outright. Will he seal it this weekend?

 

Burnley v Brighton

Sean Dyche has faced Brighton six times as Burnley manager without winning. Tottenham Hotpsur are the only side he has faced more and not won, with eight.

 

Crystal Palace v Leicester

Crystal Palace are looking to secure back-to-back home Premier League wins for the first time since a run of three in April 2017. Jamie Vardy has scored nine away Premier League goals this season and has four goals from his last six matches in London.

 

Huddersfield v Everton

No side have failed to score in more Premier League home matches this season than Huddersfield Town's six. But no side have kept fewer away clean sheets than Everton's two.

 

Newcastle v West Brom

Rafael Benitez has won seven of his previous eight Premier League matches against West Brom and he drew the other. He has won all four home matches against them without conceding a goal, each time facing a different manager.

 

Southampton v Bournemouth

Southampton have never lost at home to AFC Bournemouth in any competition (winning eight and drawing five).

 

Swansea v Chelsea

A Chelsea win, in Antonio Conte's 73rd match, would make him the third-quickest manager in Premier League history to reach 50 wins, behind Jose Mourinho's 63 matches and Pep Guardiola's 69.

 

West Ham v Man City

West Ham's Pablo Zabaleta and Joe Hart (on loan from City) both won two Premier League titles in their time at the Etihad.

 

Man United v Arsenal

Danny Welbeck has scored in both his visits to Old Trafford for Arsenal in all competitions. No Arsenal player has scored at Man Utd more times under Arsene Wenger, with Emmanuel Adebayor and Sylvain Wiltord also netting two.

 

Spurs v Watford

Watford players Heurelho Gomes, Younes Kaboul and Etienne Capoue all featured for Spurs before moving to Vicarage Road.
