Premier League clubs ranked by average goals scored during live TV games

The 72 EFL clubs met at Villa Park on Thursday

The 72 EFL clubs met at Villa Park on Thursday

The former Real Madrid forward showcased his skills with a hat trick as Chelsea defeated Stoke 4-0 on Saturday, drawing him level with Romelu Lukaku and Sergio Aguero with six league goals.

Manchester United have a midweek trip to Russian Federation coming up with CSKA Moscow the opposition in the Champions League, before a return to Premier League duty sees Roy Hodgson's Crystal Palace arrive at Old Trafford.

Chelsea arrive in the Potteries with the home side having won just two of their last seven games in the Premier League - though their sole top flight win came against Arsenal last month - with their four-game winless run extended by defeat to Championship side Bristol City in the EFL Cup.

"Alvaro took his goals very well, which for a striker is very important", Chelsea manager Antonio Conte said. "I don't know the whole circumstances, but from a football fans' point of view I think he's a loss to the Premier League".

Harry Kane scored twice as 10-man Tottenham withstood a late West Ham comeback to win 3-2.

Alexis has endured a slow start to the season as he eases his way back to fitness and tries to get over the disappointment of not being a Manchester City player right now but offered a timely reminder of his ability last week with a stunning finish against Koln in the Europa League.

Therefore, going for the clean sheet might be the safer bet, and with Kyle Walker operating in a more forward role in this system, the chance of an assist on top of that is heightened.

Shinji Okazaki and Jamie Vardy scored for Leicester, but Mignolet denied the latter an equaliser from the spot in the 71st minute. I repeat, it's not simple to win away against them.
