1 – Manchester United have won just 1 of their 10 matches versus the current top 8 this season, drawing 3 and losing 6. David Moyes guided his side to a 1-0 home win against Arsenal back in November but have since been beaten at home by Everton, Newcastle and Tottenham. The Red Devils host second-place Liverpool on Sunday.
4 – Hull City have taken 4 points from a possible 27 against current top four sides. Their only win was back on 1 December in a 3-1 win against Liverpool at the KC Stadium. Their only other point was a home draw against Tottenham. The Tigers host Manchester City in Saturday’s lunch time kick-off.
7 – All 7 of Samuel Eto’o’s Premier League goals this season have come at Stamford Bridge. Manager José Mourinho has previously stated that the Cameroonian is better suited to the formation at home. Chelsea travel to Aston Villa this weekend so perhaps Fernando Torres or Demba Ba will get the nod.
