Tottenham, Liverpool and Arsenal claimed victories in the Premier League on Sunday – read the key Opta statistics from the three games…

Manchester City 1 Tottenham Hotspur 2

Manchester City have won just one of their 10 Premier League games against sides currently in the top eight this season (D3 L6).

Tottenham ended a run of five successive league defeats at the Etihad Stadium, earning their first victory there since May 2010.

Indeed, the last time Tottenham won both Premier League games against Man City in a season was in 2009-10.

No player has scored more goals as a substitute in the Premier League this season than Kelechi Iheanacho (3, level with Naismith, Giroud and Benteke).

Harry Kane has scored 15 goals in his last 17 Premier League games.

Since the start of last season, only Sergio Aguero (40) has scored more Premier League goals than Kane (37).

City have lost four home games in the Premier League this season, more than they had in Manuel Pellegrini’s first two seasons combined (3).

Tottenham have won five consecutive Premier League games for the first time since a run of six in December 2011.

Indeed, Mauricio Pochettino’s side are unbeaten in 12 away league games – their longest run since a run of 16 from November 1984 to August 1985.

Christian Eriksen was the first player to score on his birthday in the Premier League since Dame N’Doye (Hull v QPR) in February 2015.

Aston Villa 0 Liverpool 6

Daniel Sturridge has scored five goals in four Premier League appearances for Liverpool against Aston Villa.

Sturridge has the best minutes-per-goal ratio of any Liverpool player in Premier League history (118 mins per goal).

Kevin Stewart became the 200th different player to make a Premier League appearance for Liverpool.

James Milner has now scored in 40 different Premier League matches and never lost – only Darius Vassell (46 games) has a superior record to this in the competition.

Divock Origi scored just 37 seconds after coming on as a substitute in this match; the fastest goal by a sub in the Premier League in 2015-16.

This was the first time that Aston Villa have conceded six goals at home in a league game since October 1983 (2-6 vs Arsenal).

This was Liverpool’s joint-biggest Premier League win away from home (fourth 6-0 win).

This was the first time that Liverpool have had six different goalscorers in a single Premier League match.

At 6-0, this was the biggest margin of victory in a Premier League match in 2015-16.

This was the eighth 6-0 away win in Premier League history – four of those have been wins for Liverpool.

Jordan Henderson now has 19 Premier League assists since 2013-14; no English player has more in that time (level with Wayne Rooney).

Arsenal 2 Leicester City 1

Leicester City still haven’t won a league game against Arsenal since November 1994 (P19 W0 D6 L13).

The Foxes have failed to win and have collected just three points in their last 19 away league games against Arsenal (W0 D3 L16).

Jamie Vardy has won six penalties in the Premier League this season, twice as many as any other player.

In fact, Vardy has won more penalties alone (6) than all of the other 19 Premier League teams this season.

Leicester have been awarded 10 penalties this season in the Premier League – twice as many as any other team.

This was the ninth time this season that Jamie Vardy has scored the opening goal of a Premier League game – the most of all Premier League players.

Theo Walcott’s 70th-minute goal was Arsenal’s first shot on target in this match, while Danny Welbeck scored with their sixth and final shot on target in this game.

Welbeck’s goal was Arsenal’s 100th goal scored in 90+ mins of a Premier League game; more than any other side.

Leicester named an unchanged starting XI for the sixth successive Premier League game – the longest run in the league this season and the longest in the competition since Arsenal (six games) in May 2015.
