10 Interesting Stats from Premier League Matchday 30

0 – Manchester United have not allowed their opponents a single shot on target in the first half of any of their last three Premier League games.

4 – Ander Herrera’s assist for Juan Mata’s opener at Anfield means that Manchester United’s centre midfielder has more assists than Manchester City’s David Silva (3) this season.

7 – The bottom seven all lost in the Premier League this weekend.

8 – Thibaut Courtois has kept only one clean sheet in his last eight Premier League matches.  The Chelsea goalkeeper was solely to blame for Hull City’s second goal on Sunday.  Interestingly, the Belgian’s last two clean sheets in the league have both come against West Ham.

13 – Manchester United ended Liverpool’s 13-game unbeaten streak in the Premier League to open up a five-point gap between the two rivals with a 2-1 win at Anfield on Sunday.  United had also been the last team to beat the Reds in the league before they went on this run.

17% – Allan McGregor saved just 1 of the 6 shots on target he faced versus Chelsea this season.  The Scottish goalkeeper didn’t cover himself in glory with Loïc Rémy’s winner on Sunday either.

19 – Harry Kane ends the weekend as the Premier League’s joint-top scorer alongside Diego Costa.  An Englishman has not finished the season on top since Kevin Phillips scored 30 goals during the 1999-2000 season.

38 – Steven Gerrard was on the field for only 38 seconds as a second half substitute in Liverpool’s defeat at home to Manchester United.  The Reds captain replaced Adam Lallana at half-time and was then shown a red card inside a minute for his stamp on Ander Herrera.

61 – Harry Kane became the 61st Englishman to score a hat-trick in the Premier League as the Tottenham striker helped his side to a 4-3 victory over Leicester City on Saturday.

90% – Arsenal have won nine of their last 10 Premier League games, scoring at least two goals in each of those victories.
