Welcome to the season of snow, Santa Claus and plenty of Premier League games. As we’ve pointed out before several times, this month December is the busiest period for Premier League. Unlike the other “lazy” leagues, the Premier League doesn’t sleep until the season is done with.
What this means is that while we’re still catching our breath after the sensational drama from the Manchester derby, Merseyside derby and Arsenal’s draw, another round of Premier League games is already upon us.
If you’re a bettor, this period is an exciting one for you and your bank account, with more and more games to bet on. As you prepare to place those bets, here are some stats you should be aware of:
More Than Just an Unbeaten Streak
With Swansea set to host Manchester City, you’re probably waiting to back the Cityzens to win this one – that’s if you haven’t done so already. While that’s fine, what if we showed you something you probably overlooked.
Apart from being the only side yet to taste defeat in the Premier League, they have averaged 3 goals per game since their campaign started. The 2-1 score line has also been a regular feature in their past three games in the league.
Everton’s Terrible Away Form
Forget everything you know or heard about Sam Allardyce’s current run of form for Everton and how he’s yet to taste defeat. The Toffees are yet to win a single game away from home this season.
After 8 games, they’ve drawn 4 and lost the rest. They’ve scored less than a goal per game and have conceded an average of 2 goals per game whenever they travelled.
Burnley’s Great Defense at Home vs. Stoke’s Frail Defense Away From Home
Burnley has ruffled a couple of feathers this season. That’s why they’re 7th on the log and have conceded just 12 goals (the 3rd lowest in the league).
Stoke City, on the other hand, have not had much success away from home. One win in eight games, nine goals scored and 20 conceded has contributed to them being just a few points above relegation at the moment.
For the Hammers vs. the Gunners
Arsenal has won 11 of its last 14 games against West Ham in all competitions. Wenger’s men have also scored at least 3 goals in nine of those last 14 games against West Ham in all competitions.
As for West Ham, their best record in the league is their home record. Three wins, one draw and three losses. Although they’ve only been able to score an average of one goal per game in their home games, expect something different according to history.
West Ham has seen over 2,5 goals in their last 8 home matches against Arsenal in all competitions.
