The chaotic festive period in the Premier League is well and truly in full flow.

With barely any breathing room between games, plus various COVID-19 related issues having an impact, expect another drama-filled weekend of action.

Tottenham host Liverpool in the matchweek’s headline fixture, while strugglers Newcastle United face the thankless task of hosting Manchester City after defeat at Anfield on Thursday.

The Magpies’ fellow relegation-threatened side Burnley are at Steven Gerrard’s high-flying Aston Villa.

Chelsea head to goal-shy Wolves on Sunday and Arsenal are away at injury-hit Leeds United, with the other five scheduled Premier League fixtures postponed due to coronavirus. 

But before any of that, why not prepare for more top-flight action with our Opta-powered quiz? No cheating, the answers are at the bottom…

1. Danny Ings has scored in each of his last three top-flight games against former side Burnley. How many goals has the striker tallied in his past seven matches against clubs he has previously represented in the competition?

2. Against no side have Manchester City netted more Premier League hat-tricks than they have against Newcastle (three). Who scored the Citizens’ last Premier League treble against the Magpies?

3. Liverpool are on a 34-game unbeaten run in the top flight in the month of December. But who were the last side to inflict defeat on them during the festive period in 2016?

4. Mason Mount has been in fine form recently, scoring in each of his past four Premier League appearances for Chelsea. Who was the last Blue to find the net in five consecutive top-flight matches?

5. Two Englishmen scored in Arsenal’s 2-0 EFL Cup win over Leeds United earlier in the season, after just one of the previous 35 Gunners goals against the Whites had come from an English player. Can you name the duo who were on the scoresheet against Marcelo Bielsa’s side?

Answers:

1. Five goals
2. Ferran Torres (2020-21)
3. Bournemouth (4-3)
4. Frank Lampard (between April and August 2010)
5. Calum Chambers and Eddie Nketiah
