Premier League Opta Facts: 07-08 February

Opta Facts bring you the key information on every Premier League game to help you with your football betting and are supplied to us weekly by Opta Sportsdata, Europe's leading sports performance data providers.

The top three in the Premier League table have, on paper at least, relatively easy games this weekend and will all be looking to maintain their current positions. But this season has been full of surprises already and tricky away-ties for Liverpool and Man Utd could mean we see some movement at the top.

The big North London derby takes place on Sunday, live on Sky Sports at 13:30. Harry Redknapp's Tottenham are quite literally looking like the team-of-old (even Gary Lineker could be on his way back) and will be confident at home to an Arsenal side that have, in all honesty, struggled all year.
