🦁 English Premier League: Seven facts to prep you for Saturday’s action

The Premier League is almost back, and we’re hitting the final stretch.

From Mo Salah’s astonishing record against Watford to a potential milestone for Neal Maupay, we’ve got all of the best facts & figures via the Premier League to prep you for the action this Saturday.

👑 Liverpool vs Watford

Liverpool’s Mohamed Salah has been directly involved in 11 goals in just seven Premier League matches against Watford, scoring nine and assisting two. The Egyptian averages a goal or assist every 57 minutes versus the Hornets, the fourth-best ratio one player has against a club in the competition’s history (minimum 600 minutes against that opponent). 

⏳ Brighton vs Norwich

Neal Maupay has scored 26 goals in the Premier League for Brighton & Hove Albion. One more strike will make him the Seagulls’ highest goalscorer in the competition (he is currently level with Glenn Murray). The Frenchman’s last two league goals have come against promoted sides, versus Brentford in December and Watford in February. 

😮 Burnley vs Man City

Man City have won their last nine meetings with Burnley in all competitions by an aggregate score of 32-1. The Citizens have had six runs of 10+ consecutive victories against an opponent, with the most recent match in five of those coming during Pep Guardiola’s time in charge.

💫 Chelsea vs Brentford

Kai Havertz has scored four goals in his last three Premier League matches for Chelsea, as many as he had in his previous 21. The German is looking to score in four consecutive league appearances for the first time since a run of five between April and August 2019 with Bayer Leverkusen. 

🚌 Leeds vs Southampton

Leeds forward Rodrigo has scored in each of his last two Premier League appearances. He has not scored in more consecutive league matches since a run of five with Valencia in 2018. 

☄️ Wolves vs Aston Villa

Twenty-year-old Jacob Ramsey has scored six Premier League goals for Aston Villa this season. Only two men have scored more in a single campaign for the Villans while under 21, those players being Luke Moore in 2005-06 (eight) and Gabriel Agbonlahor in 2006-07 (nine). 

🐐 Man United vs Leicester

Cristiano Ronaldo has scored 12 Premier League goals this season. In the competition’s history, only Gianfranco Zola has scored more in a single campaign while aged 36 or over, with 14 in 2002-03.

Enjoy the action! It’s been a while.
