The Premier League 2020-21 has already been one of the most competitive seasons in the history of English football.

As things stand, Manchester City are three points clear of arch-rivals Manchester United at the top of the Premier League points table, with a game in hand.

The matchweek 22 of the Premier League also features some mouth-watering clashes, and here are the numbers that will help you ace it:

Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Arsenal

Both Wolverhampton Wanderers and Arsenal have been pretty inconsistent this season and both the sides have a point to prove going into this game. 

While Mikel Arteta’s men have remained unbeaten in their last five PL games, Wolves have failed to win a single game in their last five encounters in the league.

The Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Arsenal head-to-head is also pretty one-sided, with the Gunners winning eight of the 13 meetings between the two clubs. On the other hand, Wolves have managed to win only two encounters. Three matches have ended in a stalemate.

Meanwhile, Arsenal have scored seven goals in away matches in the second half while Nuno Espírito Santo’s men have conceded eight goals at their home during that time period.

On current form and head-to-head record, Arsenal will clearly start as favourites when they take on the Wanderers at the Molineux Stadium on Tuesday.

Manchester United vs Southampton

Manchester United’s title push has hit a roadblock after a goalless draw against Arsenal, and they seek to bounce back when they host Southampton at the Old Trafford on Tuesday night (early Wednesday morning in India).

The two teams are heading into this game with contrasting forms. While Manchester United have won three of their last five Premier League matches, Southampton have been struggling recently, winning just a solitary game in their last five matches.

Manchester United vs Southampton head-to-head stats clearly favour the Red Devils, winning 27 of the 43 encounters played between the two clubs in the Premier League.

With 11 goals and seven assists to his name, United’s Bruno Fernandes is tipped to open the scoring in the upcoming fixture.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men are expected to bag three points at the Old Trafford in matchweek 22.

Burnley vs Manchester City

Table-toppers Manchester City will look to become the first Premier League side since Arsenal in 2002 to win 13 successive games in all competitions when they travel to Burnley.

Pep Guardiola’s men have been on an extraordinary run of form winning all their last five PL games.

On the other hand, Burnley have been pretty inconsistent, winning two of their last five matches in the Premier League.

Interestingly, Sean Dyche’s side has only registered a solitary win in the 13 matches they have faced the Citizens in the league.

City will start as overwhelming favourites when they take on Burnley at the Turf Moor Stadium on Wednesday.

Liverpool vs Brighton

Liverpool will host Brighton and Hove Albion on Wednesday at Anfield as the Reds aim to make it three wins in as many games for the first time since September.

The Premier League title-holders need to bag all the three points if they are to retain the title this season.

Interestingly, Brighton have never beaten Jurgen Klopp’s men in the seven matches in the league.

Liverpool’s defensive crisis has been the talk of the town in recent weeks, as they conceded 9 goals at home. With Virgil van Dijk still nursing his injury, Klopp needs to deploy a formidable defensive line to keep a certain Neal Maupay in check.

Meanwhile, Mohammad Salah has been the standout player for Liverpool with 15 goals and three assists in the Premier League.

The Reds are tipped to clinch all three points at Anfield and stay in contention for the title.

Tottenham vs Chelsea

Thomas Tuchel faces his biggest test as Chelsea manager as he takes on Jose Mourinho's Tottenham in the Premier League’s standout fixture in matchweek 22.

The Blues have been the most dominant side in the Tottenham vs Chelsea PL fixtures, winning 30 of the 57 matches played amongst each other. On the other hand, Tottenham have only secured seven victories in those matches.

Both the sides have pretty similar form going into the upcoming fixtures with two wins, two losses and one draw in their last five PL matches.

In the absence of Harry Kane, Son Heung-min is tipped to open the scoring in the mouth-watering contest between Tottenham and Chelsea.
