Premier League matchday 33 - Chelsea, Arsenal, Manchester United
Posted 17. april 2015
Ahead of this weekend's programme of seven Barclays Premier League fixtures we take a look at all the vital statistics involving the main matches. Discover why Chelsea have plenty of cause for optimism as they prepare to host Manchester United on Saturday, why free-scoring Leicester City will be bullish about their prospects at home to Swansea City earlier in the day and how West Ham United are on the verge of bursting Man City's bubble with a first Premier League double on Sunday.
- Chelsea have lost only one of their last 12 Barclays Premier League home matches against Manchester United (W7 D4 L1).
- Man Utd have suffered more BPL defeats by Chelsea than by any other side (15).
- Chelsea's last home defeat in the league came almost exactly one year ago (19 April, 2014 vs Sunderland).
- Swansea City are unbeaten in their last three BPL matches (W2 D1). They have not gone four such matches without a defeat in a single season since January 2013.
- Leicester City have scored at least two goals in three successive Barclays Premier League matches for the first time since November 2003.
- The Foxes have won both of their matches so far in April this season, after a run of 17 BPL matches in April without a win before that.
- West Ham United have never done the double over Manchester City in a single Barclays Premier League campaign (they defeated Man City 2-1 at the Boleyn Ground this season).
- Man City have outrun their opponents six times in the BPL this season, fewer than any other side.
- West Ham have scored a league-high 15 headed goals this season, 11 more than Man City (four).
