Lukaku, Wan-Bissaka, Salah and more… 10 of the best stats from the Premier League weekend

Its been another intriguing weekend of Premier League football, with three of the top six dropping points, Brendan Rodgers losing on his managerial debut at Leicester, and only two of the bottom eight sides getting anything out of their respective games.

Here are 10 of the best stats from the weekend.

Spurs and Arsenal played out a 1-1 draw at Wembley on Saturday, and while it was only a short trip across London for Unai Emery’s side, it’s safe to say that Gunners’ defence doesn’t travel well…

Fulham’s defeat to Chelsea won’t have come as a surprise to many considering the two side’s league positions. While the Cottagers have been pretty pants against most teams this season, it seems as though they particularly don’t like playing other teams from London.

Mo Salah is officially in his worst goalscoring drought for Liverpool…although it probably says more about how good the Egyptian has been so far.

One man who does know where the net is at the moment is Romelu Lukaku, with the Manchester United striker netting four goals in his last two appearances, including three with his unfavoured right foot – including this one…

Jamie Vardy may well have been having a party when Claude Puel departed the King Power last week. Not only because he has publicly said he wasn’t a fan on the Frenchman’s style, but because he could continue this fine goalscoring record…

However, Brendan Rodgers would have been hoping to break his particular disappointing record, with the Leicester boss seeming to be a bit of a slow burner when he takes over at a new club in England…

Crystal Palace‘s Aaron Wan-Bissaka has been courted by a number of top clubs and put his display against Burnley only went to show how good the 21-year-old is defensively…

Bournemouth have been on the end of a few hidings of late, and with Man City coming to town at the weekend, it’s no surprise to see Eddie Howe try to shut up shop at the back, although their attacking threat was severely blunted.

Liverpool missed the chance to maintain their place at the top of the table though after being held to a 0-0 draw by Everton in what was the 200th Merseyside Derby. However, the scoreline probably shouldn’t have come as a great surprise…

Despite their topsy turvy season under Marco Silva, it seemed like Everton were absolutely determined not to help Liverpool’s title chances.
