Newcastle have won back-to-back Premier League matches while Stoke are unbeaten in their last three.

Newcastle have also kept successive clean sheets after wins against both West Ham and Swansea.

They have conceded three goals so far - an average of 0.75 goals per game.

Stoke are yet to win away from home this season, picking up just one point from a possible six.

Newcastle and Stoke have both scored four goals at this stage of the campaign - an average of one goal per game.

Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting scored his first goals for Stoke last weekend and currently averages a goal every 144 minutes.

This is a fixture that has not provided many goals as of late, with just five being scored in the last five matches. No team has scored more than two in any of those head-to-heads.

Of those five goals, only one of them has been scored by Newcastle, with Jack Colback scoring in a 1-1 draw at St. James’ Park back in February 2015.

Newcastle earned an emphatic 5-1 win over Stoke in front of their own fans back in December 2013. It was very much a French connection that afternoon as four of the five goals were scored by players from France.
