🧠 Premier League stats: Nine things we learned this weekend

Arsenal's young guns continue to shine and Kevin De Bruyne joined an elite Belgian club. 

Here are the nine best facts from another action-packed weekend in the world-famous English Premier League.

🤨 Leicester 1-0 Leeds

All five managers who have faced Brendan Rodgers in their first Premier League match have lost.

🪄 Aston Villa 4-0 Southampton

Philippe Coutinho has both scored and assisted in three of his last six home Premier League appearances (for Liverpool vs Swansea in 2017, Villa vs Leeds in February and in this match).

🔵 Burnley 0-4 Chelsea

Chelsea’s four-goal win over Burnley was the biggest by an away team in a Premier League match that was goalless at half-time since Tottenham Hotspur won 4-0 at Aston Villa in December 2012.

😯 Newcastle 2-1 Brighton

No side is on a longer current unbeaten run in the Premier League than Newcastle, with the Magpies undefeated in their last eight matches in the competition (W5 D3).

🐝 Norwich 1-3 Brentford

Brentford became the 40th team to boast a Premier League hat-trick scorer, while they remain the only side in the history of the competition not to concede one. And Ivan Toney scored it on his birthday!

🥅 Wolves 0-2 Crystal Palace

11% of Palace's 536 goals in the Premier League have come via penalties (60) - the highest proportion of any side with 200+ goals in the competition.

🪨 Liverpool 1-0 West Ham

Virgil van Dijk has never been on the losing side in 60 Premier League matches at Anfield (W52 D8), setting a record for the most home matches for a club without ever losing.

💫 Watford 2-3 Arsenal

Arsenal is only the fourth different side to have three different players aged 21 or younger (Smith Rowe, Saka, Martinelli) net 5+ times in the same campaign after Chelsea in 2019-20, Leeds in 1998-99 and Man United in 1995-96.

🇧🇪 Man City 4-1 Man United

Four different Belgian players have now scored 50+ Premier League goals, with Kevin De Bruyne's opener helping him join the list of Romelu Lukaku (118), Christian Benteke (86) and Eden Hazard (85).

There's Monday night action to round out game week 28, with Frank Lampard's Everton heading to London to face Tottenham.
