It’s been another intriguing weekend of Premier League action, where top four hopes were strengthened, while hopes of surviving the drop were dashed.
Man City moved to within two points of Liverpool, who play West Ham tonight, while Spurs, Chelsea and Manchester United bolstered their top four ambitions.
Huddersfield’s future looks increasingly like it is in the Championship, while Fulham face an uphill battle for survival after yet another defeat.
While the results are of course the most important thing, here are 10 of the best stats from this weekend’s action.
- Newcastle extended their winless run at Wembley to eight consecutive matches, a run stretching back to 1955.
- Watford have failed to score a single goal in their last three home league games, their worst run in over three years.
- Nathan Redmond has scored five goals for Southampton this season – and they have all come under the tenure of Ralph Hasenhuttl.
- Gonzalo Higuain became the first Chelsea player to score twice on their home league debut for the club since Mario Stanic v West Ham in August 2000.
- Fulham are the first side in English top-flight history to lose eight consecutive London derby matches following their defeat to Crystal Palace.
- Wolves’ Raul Jimenez has been directly involved in more Premier League goals than any other Wolves player this season (nine goals, five assists).
- Cardiff kept back-to-back clean sheets at home in the Premier League for the first time ever, in their 2-0 win over Bournemouth.
- Manchester United have as many league wins under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as Jose Mourinho this season (7). The Norwegian did it in nine fewer games.
- Marcus Rashford has scored more goals in all competitions since his debut (42) than any other Manchester United player.
- Sergio Aguero has scored both of the Premier League’s two quickest goals this season, and did it in the space of four days (24 seconds v Newcastle and 46 seconds v Arsenal)
