AFC Bournemouth v Middlesbrough

* Middlesbrough won the reverse fixture 2-0 earlier in the season. A win today would be their first double over a side this season.
* However, Boro haven’t won in the league in 2017 – a run of 15 games.
* Boro also haven’t won away from home for 15 matches and have lost 7 of their last 9 away from the Riverside.
* Bournemouth are without a win in 4 so aren’t in the best for either.
* The Cherries’ defence is the leakiest in the PL in 2017 – 32 conceded since the turn of the year.

Hull City v Watford

* Watford are looking for a double over Hull, having won 1-0 at Vicarage Road earlier in the season.
* However, the KCOM Stadium is a fortress under Marco Silva – Hull have dropped just 2 points in 6 matches there since he took over.
* However, Hull have lost their last 2 matches, which both ended 3-1.
* Watford have won 3 of their last 4 matches.
* But they have lost their last 3 away matches.

Swansea City v Stoke City

* Stoke won 3-1 at the Bet365 Stadium earlier in the season.
* Swansea have beaten Stoke just once in their last 7 attempts.
* Swansea have lost 5 of their last 6 PL matches.
* Stoke are also out of form, having lost 4 of their last 5 matches and 7 of their last 9 away from home.
* Scoring is a problem for both sides: Swansea haven’t found the back of the next on 4 of their last 5 matches and Stoke haven’t scored away from him since mid-January.

West Ham United v Everton

* Everton won 2-0 earlier in the season.
* The Hammers have an awful record against the Toffees – just one win in their last 17 attempts.
* They are also out of form, with just 1 win in their last 9 PL matches.
