Liverpool will seek to extend their run of Premier League wins this weekend, but to do so they will have to record a first triumph away to Sheffield United in the competition.

The Reds have made a perfect start to the 2019-20 season and kick off the action at Bramall Lane, with the last of the 10 games arguably the pick as Arsenal go to Manchester United on Monday.

But while you wait for the football to get started, why not test out your knowledge with this week’s Opta-powered big Friday Premier League quiz?

Answers are at the bottom of the page – no peeking!

 

1.  The first game of the weekend sees leaders Liverpool go to Sheffield United. Bramall Lane is one of only three grounds the Reds have played at without winning in the Premier League. Can you name the other two?

2.  Brighton and Hove Albion visit Stamford Bridge on Saturday with Chelsea still seeking a first home win under Frank Lampard in the Premier League. If the Blues miss out again, he will become only the second manager in the club’s history to fail to win any of their first four home league games. Who was the other?

3.  Tottenham welcome Southampton to their shiny new ground in what will become only the second Premier League fixture to be played in five different stadiums: Wembley, White Hart Lane, Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, St Mary’s and The Dell. What is the other fixture and can you name the venues?

4.  Wolves host Watford this weekend. One player likely to feature has had more attempts at goal (18) and more shots on target (8) without scoring than any other player in the Premier League so far this season. Who is he?

5.  At Everton, Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero will aim to become the fourth Premier League player to score in eight games in a row. Who are the other members of that exclusive club?

 

Answers:

1. Nottingham Forest’s City Ground (five games) and Blackpool’s Bloomfield Road (one game).
2. Bobby Campbell in April 1988 (D3 L1).
3. Tottenham v West Ham (Wembley, White Hart Lane, Tottenham Stadium, Upton Park and London Stadium).
4. Gerard Deulofeu 
5. Ruud van Nistelrooy (eight between December 2001-January 2002 and 10 between March-August 2003), Daniel Sturridge (eight between November 2013-February 2014) and Jamie Vardy (11 between August-November 2015).
