While Manchester City have secured a solid 14-point lead at the top of the table, the other top four contenders have struggled to find form of late.
On the one hand, Manchester United’s goal-scoring woes continued with a 0-0 draw against Crystal Palace. On the other, Liverpool succumbed to their fifth consecutive defeat as Chelsea overpowered them 1-0 at the Anfield Stadium.
Both the former EPL giants will be desperate to make amends with their next league match arriving in a matter of days, and we bring you the numbers that will help you predict better.
Burnley vs Arsenal
Though a good eight points separate Burnley and Arsenal, the two sides don't arrive in the fixture with much to separate them at the moment.
While former Premier League giants Arsenal leads the head-to-head record against the Clarets with 10-1, the Gunners have lost thrice in their last five EPL matches as opposed to Burnley's three. A better side on paper, Mikel Arteta's men have won more matches than Burnley in this time, but Turf Moor has been a difficult side for Arsenal of late.

A win against Leicester City away from home, however, does make the Gunners the favorites in this fixture.
Liverpool vs Fulham
It is fair to say that Jurgen Klopp has run out of ideas to win the league, after lifting the title a few months back. The Reds succumbed to their fifth straight defeat last night as Chelsea beat them 1-0 to into the top four, and although the Reds clearly remain the better side on paper against Fulham, they will be short of confidence.
Fulham have lost just once in their last five EPL games, winning twice and drawing the same, but winning at Anfield will need much more than good form.

Interestingly, while a star-studded Liverpool side (22) has scored nine more goals than Fulham (13) this season, the Cottagers (15) have conceded two goals lesser than the Reds (17).
Manchester City vs Manchester United
If there's one side who can pause Manchester City's unbelievable winning streak, it has to be their city rivals. Despite not being half as good as City on paper, the Red Devils have held a psychological advantage over Pep Guardiola's men in recent times.
City have won just twice in their last five clashes with United, with the other three seeing City losing twice and drawing once. United also hold a 23-15 lead over City in their head-to-head.
However, one cannot deny City's current form. While Guardiola's men have won five of their last matches, United have drawn four times and won only one. Their record at the Etihad also favors City more.

Chelsea vs Everton
Liverpool might have been a difficult place to win for Thomas Tuchel's Chelsea team, but Carlo Ancelotti's Everton have been the real deal in the Premier League so far.
The Toffees trail Chelsea by a point in the table with a game in hand, and as far as the firepower is concerned, both the teams equally boast of some of the world-class players in their squad.
Hosts Chelsea lead Everton 26-12 in head-to-head and will be optimistic with their home record against their opponents as well, but Ancelotti has already pulled off some big upsets this season.
