🦁 Premier League: 10 things we learned in Matchweek 14

The English Premier League is fast approaching the halfway mark with Matchweek 15 fixtures planned for this weekend. 

It was an action-packed week with 10 matches spread over three days. 

Here is what we learnt from the midweek action. 

Newcastle United 1-1 Norwich City

A quarter of Teemu Pukki’s Premier League goals have come against Newcastle, with four out of 16. Against no other side has he scored more than twice in the competition

Leeds United 1-0 Crystal Palace

Since their return to the Premier League Leeds have won six of their seven-midweek matches in the competition, winning all five such encounters on a Tuesday

Southampton 2-2 Leicester City

Leicester have scored and conceded in 14 consecutive away Premier League matches stretching back to a 2-1 win at Aston Villa in February. It is a joint-record in PL history, along with a 14-match run for Blackburn between May 2011 and February 2012

Watford 1-2 Chelsea

Emmanuel Dennis became the first Watford player to score in three consecutive Premier League matches since Troy Deeney in February 2017. The Nigerian has been directly involved in eight goals (four goals, four assists) in his last five appearances in the competition

West Ham United 1-1 Brighton  

Brighton’s Neal Maupay has now scored five goals in his last seven Premier League starts in London

Wolves 0-0 Burnley

Sean Dyche has only lost one of his 11 league matches against Wolves (W5 D5), with his sides keeping five clean sheets in that run

Aston Villa 1-2 Manchester City

Ollie Watkins has scored five goals in three Premier League appearances against the reigning champions (four in two matches v Liverpool last season, one v Man City on Wednesday). He’s the first player to score in his first three appearances against reigning PL champions since Roberto Pereyra (v Leicester in 2016/17 and Chelsea in 2017/18)

Everton 1-4 Liverpool

Mohamed Salah has been directly involved in at least one goal in each of his last 12 Premier League appearances (13 goals, 7 assists). He is the third player to achieve that feat after Stan Collymore (12, March - August 1995) and Jamie Vardy (15, August - December 2015)

Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 Brentford

Antonio Conte has won his first three home matches in all competitions at Spurs. He is the club's fourth consecutive manager to achieve this at the start of their tenure (also Jose Mourinho, Ryan Mason and Nuno Espírito Santo), with Mauricio Pochettino in 2014 the last to fail to do so

Manchester United 3-2 Arsenal

Emile Smith Rowe (21y &127d) is now the second youngest goal scorer for Arsenal in the Premier League at Old Trafford after Nicolas Anelka in February 1999 (19y & 340d)

Action continues this weekend with 10 matches lined up.
