🦁 Premier League matchday 26: Nine things that we learned

Emi Martínez shone in goal for Villa once again, while Brighton had to rue two missed opportunities from the spot.

Here are the best take-home stats from MD26 via the Premier League

🤺 Man City 2-1 West Ham

Rúben Dias and John Stones have scored four EPL goals between them and conceded just three in 14 starts together in the centre of City's defence.

🥅 West Brom 1-0 Brighton

Brighton is the first team in Premier League history to miss two penalties by hitting the woodwork in a single match.

🧺 Leeds 0-1 Aston Villa

Emiliano Martínez has eight away clean sheets this season, more than any other goalkeeper and level with the Aston Villa record set by Brad Friedel in 2009-10. 

🏀 Newcastle 1-1 Wolves

Newcastle and Wolves have both scored in all 12 Premier League meetings between the sides, the most played fixture in the competition with neither side keeping a clean sheet. 

🏰 Crystal Palace 0-0 Fulham

Fulham is unbeaten in their last seven Premier League matches on the road (W1 D6), their longest such run without defeat away from home in the competition. 

🛣 Leicester 1-3 Arsenal

This was Arsenal’s first away victory against a team starting the day in the top three of the Premier League table since January 2015 (2-0 vs Man City). 

⚪️ Spurs 4-0 Burnley

No player has scored more Premier League goals against Burnley than Spurs striker Harry Kane (eight, level with Riyad Mahrez), with Kane involved in 10 goals in his last six league appearances against the Clarets (seven goals, three assists).

🔵 Chelsea 0-0 Man United

Thomas Tuchel has become just the second coach not to concede a single goal in his first four Premier League home matches, after Brendan Rodgers in 2011-12 with Swansea City.

🌟 Sheffield United 0-2 Liverpool

Curtis Jones is the youngest Liverpool player (20y 29d) to score an away Premier League goal since Raheem Sterling in December 2014 against Burnley (20y 18d).

Matchday 26 concludes tonight at Goodison Park where Everton host Southampton, with the Toffees having not lost to the Saints at home in any of their last 15 top-flight meetings (W10 D5).
