Premier League data dive: Mane’s Anfield half-century, Grealish off the mark in another Man City rout

The
Senegal
forward
struck
for
the
50th
time
at
Anfield
in
the
competition,
becoming
just
the
fifth
Reds
star
to
do
so
in
the
Premier
League
era,
as
Liverpool
swept
to
a
2-0
win.

Danny
Ings
joined
notable
company
as
he
scored
a
stunning
goal
in
Aston
Villa’s
victory
over
Newcastle
United,
while
Manchester
City
hit
five
goals
in
a
game,
which
is
becoming
almost
routine
for
Pep
Guardiola’s
champions.

from

four
of
Saturday’s
standout
fixtures.


Liverpool
2-0
Burnley:
Mane
joins
Salah
in
Anfield
50-goal
club

Mane’s
clincher
against
Burnley
was
his
50th
Premier
League
goal
at
home
for
Liverpool.
The
only
players
to
have
achieved
that
feat
previously
have
been
Robbie
Fowler
(85
goals),
Steven
Gerrard
(69),
Michael
Owen
(63)
and
Mane’s
team-mate
Mohamed
Salah
(56).

Given
their
strong
finish
last
term,
Jurgen
Klopp’s
team
have
won
each
of
their
past
seven
Premier
League
games
now.
That
is
as
many
victories
as
they
enjoyed
in
their
previous
20
games
in
the
competition
(D5
L8)
and
their
longest
winning
streak
in
the
league
since
a
run
of
18
ending
in
February
2020.
Their
run
of
fourth
clean
sheets
in
the
league
is
their
longest
since
a
run
of
seven
between
December
2019
and
January
2020.

Trent
Alexander-Arnold’s
assist
for
Mane
was
the
ninth
time
he
has
teed
up
a
goal
for
the
former
Southampton
man,
four
more
than
he
has
for
any
other
Liverpool
player.

Virgil
van
Dijk
made
his
48th
home
Premier
League
appearance
with
Liverpool
and
has
lost
none
of
those
games
(W43
D5),
with
the
team’s
dip
last
season
coming
in
his
injury-enforced
absence.
Only
Lee
Sharpe
has
played
more
home
games
for
one
club
in
the
competition
without
losing
any
of
them
(59
with
Manchester
United).

As
Liverpool
celebrated,
Burnley
were
left
to
lick
their
wounds
after
losing
five
games
in
a
row
in
the
Premier
League
for
the
first
time,
last
doing
so
in
any
division
in
the
2008-09
Championship
campaign.
The
Clarets
have
lost
11
of
their
15
Premier
League
matches
against
Liverpool
(W2
D2),
more
defeats
than
they
have
suffered
against
any
other
side
in
the
competition
(losing
10
against
Arsenal,
Chelsea
and
Manchester
City).


Manchester
City
5-0
Norwich
City:
A
first
for
City,
but
a
familiar
outcome

For
the
first
time
in
Manchester
City’s
25
Premier
League
campaigns,
their
opening
goal
of
the
season
was
an
own
goal,
Tim
Krul
the
unlucky
man.

But
if
that
was
irregular,
the
final
outcome
surely
surprised
very
few
as
the
champions
put
the
promoted
Canaries
to
the
sword.

Since
Pep
Guardiola
joined
Manchester
City
ahead
of
the
2016-17
season,
there
have
been
49
Premier
League
games
won
by
a
margin
of
five
or
more
goals,
and
the
Catalan’s
team
have
been
responsible
for
23
of
these
(47
per
cent).

City
have
now
won
their
past
four
home
league
games
against
Norwich
by
an
aggregate
score
of
19-1
since
a
3-2
reverse
in
May
2013.

Jack
Grealish
became
the
first
English
player
to
score
on
his
home
Premier
League
debut
for
City
since
Frank
Lampard
netted
against
Chelsea
in
September
2014,
while
there
was
a
collector’s
item
from
Aymeric
Laporte.
The
defender
scored
his
ninth
goal
for
City
in
all
competitions,
but
it
was
his
first
to
come
at
the
Etihad
Stadium.

Norwich
have
had
a
brutal
start,
with
a
3-0
home
loss
to
Liverpool
followed
by
the
torture
of
City
away.
In
Premier
League
history,
only
Leicester
City
in
2001-02
(-9)
and
Wigan
Athletic
in
2010-11
(-10)
have
ever
had
a
worse
goal
difference
from
their
opening
two
games
of
a
season
than
Norwich’s
current
-8.

Given
their
awful
finish
to
the
2019-20
season,
Norwich
have
now
lost
12
consecutive
Premier
League
games,
the
outright
second-longest
losing
streak
in
the
competition’s
history,
behind
only
Sunderland’s
run
of
20
from
2003
to
2005.


Aston
Villa
2-0
Newcastle
United:
Diamond
Ings
shows
his
class

Former
Southampton
frontman
Ings
is
looking
like
a
smart
signing
by
Villa
already,
and
his
bicycle
kick
that
stunned
Newcastle
was
a
special
goal.

Going
back
to
last
season
with
Saints,
it
means
he
has
been
directly
involved
in
seven
goals
in
his
past
eight
Premier
League
starts,
scoring
six
and
assisting
one.
Ings
also
became
just
the
fourth
player
to
score
in
his
first
two
Premier
League
appearances
for
Villa,
after
Dalian
Atkinson
in
1992,
Dion
Dublin
in
1998
and
Ross
Barkley
in
2020.

Villa
have
not
lost
in
seven
top-flight
games
in
a
row
against
Newcastle
(W3
D4),
doing
so
for
the
first
time
since
a
run
of
seven
victories
between
1955
and
1958.

The
Magpies
are
having
a
tough
time
of
it
again,
having
lost
their
first
two
games
of
a
league
campaign
for
the
fourth
time
in
the
past
six
seasons,
after
winning
or
drawing
at
least
one
of
their
first
two
fixtures
in
each
of
the
16
campaigns
before
that.

Their
slow
starts
in
the
Premier
League
are
becoming
habitual
and
problematic,
with
Newcastle
having
won
just
two
of
their
past
19
Premier
League
games
in
August
(D6
L11),
beating
West
Ham
at
home
in
2017
and
Tottenham
away
in
2019.


Leeds
United
2-2
Everton:
Toffees
extend
Premier
League
scoreline
record

This
was
Everton’s
70th
2-2
draw
in
Premier
League
history,
and
they
have
contested
at
least
15
more
matches
with
that
outcome
than
any
other
side
in
the
competition.

If
that
was
an
all
too
familiar
outcome,
there
was
a
first
occurrence
of
note
for
the
Toffees,
too.
Dominic
Calvert-Lewin’s
opener
was
his
55th
goal
in
all
competitions
for
Everton,
but
his
first
scored
from
the
penalty
spot
for
the
team
who
are
now
bossed
by
Rafael
Benitez.

Demarai
Gray
scored
his
first
Premier
League
goal
for
Everton,
becoming
the
34th
different
player
to
score
both
for
and
against
the
Toffees
in
the
competition.
Only
West
Ham
(46),
Aston
Villa
(42)
and
Liverpool
(39)
have
had
more
players
score
for
and
against
them
in
the
competition.

Mateusz
Klich
and
Raphinha
earned
a
point
for
Leeds.
Klich
has
now
scored
two
goals
in
his
past
three
Premier
League
games
for
Leeds,
more
than
he
had
in
his
previous
32
(one).
Klich
has
now
scored
five
Premier
League
goals
in
total,
as
many
as
all
other
Polish
players
in
the
competition
combined.

Since
the
start
of
last
season,
only
Patrick
Bamford
(17
goals,
eight
assists)
has
been
directly
involved
in
more
Premier
League
goals
for
Leeds
United
than
Raphinha
(seven
goals,
nine
assists).
