🥓 English Premier League: Six sizzling stats to prep you for Saturday’s action

If you’re a Premier League fact fanatic, you’re in the right place.

Here’s one relevant piece of trivia for all six games taking place on Saturday in the world’s favourite domestic league.

🪙 Man City vs Chelsea

Manchester City’s Raheem Sterling has scored 49 Premier League goals at the Etihad Stadium and could become only the second player to reach 50 at the venue in the competition after Sergio Aguero, with 106. 

🦊 Burnley vs Leicester

Leicester midfielder James Maddison has been directly involved in seven goals in his last six Premier League appearances (four goals and three assists), more than he had in his previous 26 matches in the competition (three goals and three assists).

🦅 Newcastle vs Watford

Watford’s Emmanuel Dennis has been directly involved in 10 goals in his last nine Premier League matches (six goals and four assists). Overall, he’s got eight goals and five assists this term. Only three players have registered more goal involvements in a single PL campaign for the Hornets – Troy Deeney (three times), Odion Ighalo (18 in 2015-16) and Gerard Deulofeu (15 in 2018-19).

🚌 Norwich vs Everton

Demarai Gray and Dominic Calvert-Lewin scored each of Everton’s first four away goals in the Premier League this season (two each). Since then, the Toffees’ four away goals in the competition have been netted by different players (Andros Townsend, Alex Iwobi, Salomon Rondon, Jarrad Branthwaite). 

🧤 Wolves vs Southampton

Only Manchester City (13) have conceded fewer Premier League goals this season than Wolves (14). Excluding penalties, Wolves are the only side yet to concede a goal from a set-piece situation this term. 

💋 Aston Villa vs Man United

As a player, Steven Gerrard ended on the winning side in 10 Premier League matches against Man United, a joint-record along with Nicolas Anelka, John Terry and Petr Cech. However, including caretakers, only one of the last 18 managers has won their first Premier League match against the Red Devils, with Mikel Arteta winning with Arsenal in January 2020.
