TEAMtalk takes a look at all the key Opta statistics ahead of Sunday's Premier League action.

Liverpool travel to Stoke without a league win there in five attempts, while title rivals Man City will be looking to be the first team this season to win six Premier League matches in a row when they travel to Newcastle.

Newcastle United v Manchester City (Sun, 2.05pm)

Newcastle United have lost 12 and won none of their last 14 Barclays Premier League meetings with Man City, losing the last eight in a row.

Man City managed 11 shots on target in the reverse meeting with Newcastle this season; still the most they have mustered in a Barclays Premier League game this term.

The Citizens have scored at least twice in each of their last 11 league meetings with Newcastle (30 in total, 2.7 per game).

Yaya Toure has netted five goals in his last four Premier League games against Newcastle.

Overall, the Ivorian colossus has scored more goals against the Magpies than versus any other side (five).

Manuel Pellegrini's side are the only team yet to concede in the first 15 minutes of a Premier League game this season.

Only Wayne Rooney (9) and Mesut Ozil (7) have provided more assists this season than Jesus Navas (6).

13 of Manchester City's goals have been scored in the first 15 minutes of the second half this season; more than any other team in the Premier League.

Newcastle's Loic Remy is the only player to be caught offside more than 20 times this season (23).

If City win this game they'll be the first team to win six in a row in the Premier League this season (Arsenal have also won five in a row).

Stoke City v Liverpool (Sun, 4.10pm)

Stoke have won three and lost none of their five previous Barclays Premier League home meetings with Liverpool (D2), winning the last three in a row.

Liverpool have only lost four consecutive Barclays Premier League away games at four different clubs before: Arsenal, Chelsea, Man Utd (twice) and Spurs (twice).

Indeed, only at Nottingham Forest have Liverpool played as many Premier League games without a victory than they have at Stoke (5).

Just five of Luis Suarez's 20 league goals this season have been scored away from Anfield.

The Uruguayan's first Premier League goal for Liverpool came in his debut against Stoke City. He has failed to score in the three league appearances against the Potters since.

Loanee Oussama Assaidi, who will miss the game against his parent club, has scored three of Stoke's last five goals in the league.

Mark Hughes' side are unbeaten in their last seven home league games, winning three.

The Potters are one of two teams yet to score a headed goal in the Premier League this season (along with West Ham).

In fact, no team has conceded more headed goals than Stoke this season (7; along with Newcastle United & Fulham).

Liverpool have scored 31 goals in the first half of games this season, 12 more than Stoke have managed in total.

Aston Villa v Arsenal (Mon, 8pm)

Victory in this game would be Aston Villa's 300th in Barclays Premier League history.

Arsenal are unbeaten in 14 Barclays Premier League trips to Villa Park, winning seven and drawing seven.

The Gunners' 14 game unbeaten run at Villa is their longest away run without defeat against a single side in Premier League history.

Arsenal conceded two penalties in the reverse fixture against Aston Villa this season for the first time in the PL since Feb 5 2011 v Newcastle.

No team has scored the first goal in more Premier League games this season than Arsenal (15). Conversely, no side has scored the first goal on fewer occasions this season than Aston Villa (5).

The Villains have kept just two clean sheets in their last 21 home league matches.

Arsene Wenger's side have won just two of their last nine Premier League matches in January (D2 L5).

Aston Villa have used fewer players in the Premier League this season (21) than any other club.

The Gunners have scored more headed goals than any other team in the league this season (9).

Aston Villa have won only one of their last nine Premier League home games in January (W1 D4 L4).
