A look at some of the key stats surrounding this weekend's Premier League action, including Liverpool vs Burnley, Chelsea vs Wolves, and Arsenal vs Man Utd

Chelsea vs Wolves (Sunday, live on Sky Sports Premier League from 1pm)

It'll be an interesting game. Chelsea will have played in the Europa League and compare that to Wolves, who will have had a week's break. Chelsea need to win this for the top four, but if you're not getting in there, you have to make sure you've got a nice buffer for the Europa League places and they need to keep in both at the moment.

PAUL PREDICTS: 2-1 (15/2 with Sky Bet)

Arsenal vs Man Utd (Sunday, live on Sky Sports Premier League from 4.15pm)

Wow, this is a big game. Again, both teams will be wanting to get into the top four, but they will also want a buffer for the other European places. I see nothing but goals in this football match - both teams turning up, having a go. Arsenal look like they are playing with a real bit of confidence, they were unlucky against Tottenham and probably should have won the game.

And Man Utd - what a result against PSG. It was unreal - as simple as that. I thought they did well and there's a saying that if you can stay in the game, you never know what can happen. I thought the manager was fortunate because he got it horribly, horribly wrong in the first 20 minutes with Eric Bailly playing at right-back. They're very fortunate that they weren't out of the tie before he made the substitutions. It was a phenomenal football result and with the players they had, who all turned up - bar Bailly, who had an absolute shocker.

I can't say it will decide fourth place with Chelsea there. It's in Chelsea's hands really but I think whoever lost the game would be in trouble so it's a massive game. I think both teams will have a go at each other and there will be goals.

PAUL PREDICTS: 2-2 (11/1 with Sky Bet)

Arsenal vs Man Utd is this weekend's Sky Sports Six-a-Side fixture. Head here to pick your team!

Liverpool vs Burnley (Sunday, 12pm)

Liverpool need to win this game and they need to score early because the longer the game goes on, the bigger the panic. Before they kick off, they could be four points behind Man City so they need to start well because the pressure is going to be majorly on now. If they draw this game, all of a sudden it could be three points and a bit of goal difference so it is a massive football match for Liverpool.

Highlights from Crystal Palace's 3-1 win over Burnley

I've always said this league is going to be about who plays first and who plays second and you want to be playing first because it can take its toll.

I think Burnley will be alright in the Premier League, but they've got to be careful. They had a great result against Tottenham but got well beaten by Newcastle and Crystal Palace so they have to be careful but I would expect them to be alright.

PAUL PREDICTS: 3-1 (10/1 with Sky Bet)
