The Big Friday Premier League Quiz

The start of this Premier League season feels like a distant memory, but the reverse fixtures from that opening weekend have finally rolled around.

For those not involved in FA Cup semi-final action this week, there is the opportunity to measure progression or regression since the campaign began in September.

Everton upset Tottenham but both sides are on the outside of the Champions League places looking in as they meet again.

Liverpool pipped Leeds United in an opening-day epic, but the Whites host the struggling champions this time and have just beaten league leaders Manchester City.

Ahead of another intriguing round of matches, get prepared with our Opta-powered Friday quiz. Find your answers below!


1. Everton could become just the third side to complete a league double over a Jose Mourinho team, all of which will have occurred since his appointment at Tottenham last season. Who are the only other two teams to have beaten Mourinho's Spurs home and away in the same season in the Premier League?

2. Newcastle United are also pursuing a double, their fifth against West Ham following an away win at London Stadium in September. Which other team have Newcastle beaten home and away in five different seasons in the Premier League?

3. Arsenal host 18th-placed Fulham. The Gunners have lost just one of their past 42 home league games against sides in the relegation zone (W39 D2) at the time of the fixture, but that defeat came earlier this season. Which struggling side did lose to at Emirates Stadium?
