Alexander-Arnold, Mkhitaryan, Maddison and more – 10 of the best stats from the midweek Premier League action

It’s been an exciting few days of football, with all 20 Premier League teams taking to the field in midweek, with the results having a big say at both ends of the table. Here are some of the best stats from the midweek action…

  • Cardiff’s 3-0 loss to Everton means that they have still to win a midweek Premier League game (Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday), drawing three and losing seven.
  • Huddersfield hadn’t won a game in their last 14 before their 1-0 win over Wolves on Tuesday, with their last win ironically being against Nuno Espirito Santo’s men back in November. They also seem to have a penchant for beating teams whose names begin with the letter W, with six of the Terriers’ last nine Premier League wins coming against teams Watford, West Brom and Wolves.

  • Burnley’s 2-0 defeat against Newcastle was the first time since August 2017 that they have lost a Premier League game with Tom Heaton in goal.

  • Much has been made of Spurs attacking prowess under Mauricio Pochettino, and their 2-0 defeat to Chelsea on Wednesday was the first time since December 2013 that they failed to get a single shot on target.
  • Liverpool’s Trent Alexander-Arnold became the youngest player in Premier League history to register a hat-trick of assists in one game during the Reds 5-0 hammering of Watford.

  • Manchester United’s 3-1 win over Crystal Palace was the eighth consecutive win away from home, it was the first time in the clubs history that they have done so.
