Premier League: The shock stats of the weekend
Another weekend, another fine dose of Premier League action.
It kicked off with Manchester City’s difficult trip to Turf Moor, in which they eventually beat Burnley 2-1 through a Sergio Aguero brace, continued with a spate of bitter-fought 3pms, not least including Swansea and Crystal Palace’s nine-goal thriller at the Liberty Stadium, and ended with Chelsea completing an impressive two-goal comeback against London rivals Tottenham Hotspur – and that was only Saturday!
Indeed, Sunday didn’t disappoint either, as Stoke claimed an away win over Watford, Southampton took some retribution on Ronald Koeman and his Everton side, Arsenal convincingly swatted away Bournemouth and West Ham held Manchester United to a draw at Old Trafford.
The footballing world has gone statistics mad over the last few years and FootballFanCast are no different – in fact, there’s nothing we enjoy more than unearthing a few anomalous gems from a marathon of number crunching.
With that in mind, here’s a rundown of the most shocking statistics from all the weekend’s action, with the likes of Liverpool, Arsenal, Manchester United, Chelsea and Tottenham featuring prominently.
