Last time they met

prem.jpg

You've done it, haven't you? Checked your teams fixtures. First stop was the opening day of the season, followed closely by Boxing Day. Then you hunted out your biggest rivalry, before moving onto the last day of the season fixture, New Year's Eve and the fixture closest to your birthday.

In all of them, you can confirm, you are playing a team in your division. That's about it.

However, day one has thrown up some interesting Premier League ties, and because we're a dutiful website that cares for our readers (if we could we'd hug you right now. Big manly embrace, hard slap on the back) we've found out how you got on against your opposition last time that exact fixture came round, at that ground. We've also found out how you've done against that side in every previous fixture between the two clubs, home and away, in all competitions). Who'd have thought Wigan have only played Norwich 5 times before? And that Man City haven't played Swansea at home since 1983. True facts...

Blackburn 3 v 0 Wolves (Rovers wins:39 Draws:21 Wolves wins:36)

Fulham 1 v 1 Aston Villa (F:18 D:20 AV: 20)

Liverpool 2 v 2 Sunderland (L:72 D:33 S:51)

Man City 2 v 1 Swansea (1983, Old Div 2) (MC:12 D:2 S:6)

Newcastle 4 v 4 Arsenal (NU:66 D:37 A:35)

QPR 1 v 1 Bolton (Div 1 2001) (QPR:9 D:3 BW:12)

Stoke 1 v 1 Chelsea (S:27 D:20 C:38)

Tottenham 1 v 1 Everton (TH:59 D:48 E:52)

West Brom 1 v 2 Man Utd (WBA:20 D:29 MU:49)

Wigan 1 v 1 Norwich (Div 1, 2003) (W:1 D:1 N:3)
