Ahead of this weekend's Premier League fixtures, we take a look at the numbers you need to know. 

Will Leicester emulate the Man City team of 1938 and be relegated as reigning champions?

Premier League Champions Leicester are well and truly embroiled in a relegation dog-fight as we approach the final third of the season.

Although they overcame Derby County after extra time in the FA Cup midweek, they sit a point above the drop zone before kick-off this weekend.

They have lost their last four league matches - conceding 10 without scoring and are now in the conversation for joining the 1938 Man City team who were relegated as league champions.  

Swansea are moving in the opposite direction despite losing to late goal at Man City last weekend. Prior to that defeat, they won three of their previous four including a 3-2 win over Liverpool at Anfield. 

Can Arsenal win to take the pressure off Arsene Wenger?

The Arsenal faithful have been questioning the man who has brought them almost one third of their major honours recently and after back-to-back losses in the league, Arsene Wenger is under serious pressure this weekend.

Defeats to Watford and Chelsea has left the Gunners 12 points off the pace and they now find themselves in a fight to remain in the top four.

They welcome a Hull side who have taken seven points from their last four matches which included a draw at Old Trafford and a home win against Liverpool. 

Can Man Citys' Jesus keep up his scoring form?

Gabriel Jesus' brilliant start to his time at Man City has reinvigorated Pep Guardiola's season and has apparently pushed star striker Sergio Augero out of the team.

The Brazilian star scored on his debut against West Ham and impressed again against Swansea last time out - scoring two including a last minute winner. 

Will Pep pair him with Argentinian Augero or leave him up front on his own? They play Bournemouth on Monday night who have conceded 16 goals in their last five league matches.
