Predict the six correct scorelines from four Premier League games and two Sky Bet Championship matches. From the key stats to the main men, get your lowdown here...
Huddersfield v West Ham
Key stat: Huddersfield have failed to score more than once in their last 21 Premier League games, finding the net a mere eight times in that period. The visitors claimed two wins over the Terriers last season, the only team they beat twice during 2017/18.
Form: The hosts got their hands on their first win of the season in their last match against Fulham, subsequently taking them off the bottom. West Ham have kept up their inconsistent start to the season, sitting in 13th position, but did see off Burnley 4-2 last weekend with Felipe Anderson scoring twice.
Main men: Aaron Mooy will be pivotal for the Yorkshire side on Saturday, contributing in both attack and defence, with his tireless and tenacious play setting the tone of David Wagner's side. Marko Arnautovic has contributed to 23 of the Hammers' 61 goals since the start of last season, with 16 goals and seven assists - more than double any other player at the club.
Best backed: 0-1 (11/2 with Sky Bet)
Leicester v Burnley
Key stat: Leicester are unbeaten in seven home league matches against Burnley, winning four of those and drawing the other three, while the away side have conceded 25 goals thus far, something which took them 28 games to do last campaign.
Form: Claude Puel's players are without a loss in two, winning away at Cardiff in their last outing thanks to a strike from Demarai Gray. Burnley have failed to win their last three, losing them all by an aggregate scoreline of 2-13, yet they did face off against Manchester City and Chelsea in that time.
Main men: James Maddison has three goals and two assists to his name since his summer move from Norwich, and has been Leicester's creative spark during this campaign. Chris Wood has five goals from the bench since the start of last season - only bettered by Olivier Giroud with six - but the Kiwi will most likely lead the line for Sean Dyche at the weekend.
Best backed: 3-0 (9/1 with Sky Bet)
Newcastle v Bournemouth
Key stat: Newcastle have hosted Bournemouth twice in the Premier League, losing on both occasions, while the Cherries have registered three wins out of five on their travels this year, just one less than the amount they mustered during the whole of last season.
Form: Newcastle have picked up two thirds of their points in their last two matches, with a 1-0 win against Watford and a goalless draw away at Southampton, which has kept them adrift of the relegation zone on goal difference. Bournemouth's four-match unbeaten run came to an end against Manchester United after a late Marcus Rashford goal, yet they sit comfortably in sixth place.
Main men: Ayoze Perez netted his first of the season, and has been threatening to score more with the seven shots he has had from his nine starts - more than any other Magpies player. Callum Wilson has directly contributed to 10 goals in his last 11 matches, scoring six and assisting four. Of those six goals, four have come away from home for Eddie Howe's team.
Best backed: 0-1 (15/2 with Sky Bet)
Southampton v Watford
Key stat: Southampton have drawn four of their last 10 meetings with the Hornets and are without a win in their last seven Premier League games, drawing three of those.
Form: The Saints have only lost one of their last three, which was against Manchester City, yet they have drawn the other two matches 0-0, leaving them in 16th. Watford have won two of their last three and only conceded once in their loss to Newcastle, and sit eighth in the table as a result.
Main men: Nathan Redmond has been directly involved in five goals in his last four appearances, scoring four and creating the other. Abdoulaye Doucoure may not be the largest threat for Javi Gracia's side, with Andre Gray and Roberto Pereyra keen to have a say, but the midfielder has hit the back of the net in all three of his Premier League appearances against the Saints.
Best backed: 1-1 (5/1 with Sky Bet)
Derby v Aston Villa
Key stat: The Rams have only lost one in five home league matches against Aston Villa, while the visitors are winless in seven on the road, since defeating Hull on the opening weekend.
Form: Frank Lampard's team are unbeaten in seven home matches - winning five an drawing two - including hitting four against West Brom and three against Birmingham, which has taken them up to fifth. Dean Smith has seen his side win two and lose two since taking over, but they have lost both away games.
Main men: Derby frontman Jack Marriott has directly contributed to seven goals in his last six Sky Bet Championship matches, notching five and making two. Trying to prevent him from adding to this tally will be James Chester, who kept a clean sheet last time out and has also scored two goals in his last three matches.
Best backed: 2-1 (8/1 with Sky Bet)
Middlesbrough v Wigan
Key stat: The hosts have not lost in seven league meetings with Wigan - winning three and drawing four - while Wigan have failed to register on the scoresheet in their last four league visits to the Riverside.
Form: Middlesbrough are unbeaten in four matches, although they have only scored three goals in that time, and have drawn their last three games, while the visitors have conceded eight in their last three. They have not picked up a win since the victory over West Brom and have slipped to 18th position.
Main men: Apart from an own goal - which is the last Middlesbrough recorded on the road - Muhamed Besic has notched two of their four goals away from home, one in each of the wins at Ipswich and Sheffield Wednesday. Paul Cook's men have only mustered five goals in their last seven fixtures, but Josh Windass will be key if they are to leave with a point or more at the weekend, hitting one of those five.
Best backed: 2-0 (6/1 with Sky Bet)
