The premier league produced goals, drama and entertainment as football fans and Fantasy managers had an admirable weekend.

City where ruthless against a Brighton side who failed to be bright at the Etithad Stadium, Liverpool made it four in four, and a thrilling North London Derby rounded off the Weekend.

Dockaysworld takes a look at the key stats from Game week four.

98 – Sergio Aguero has now scored 98 goals at the Etihad Stadium – only Wayne Rooney at Old Trafford (101) and Thierry Henry at Highbury (114) have scored more goals at
a single venue in the competition’s history. Comforts.

10 – No player has scored more goals in games between Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur in all competitions than Harry Kane (joint-most with Emmanuel Adebayor and
Bobby Smith). Occasion.

3 – Daniel James has scored three goals in his four Premier League games for Manchester United; he only scored three in his final 22 Championship appearances for
previous club Swansea City. Step-up.

7 – Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has scored in seven successive premierleague starts at the Emirates; only Thierry Henry in October 2000 went on a longer run at home for Arsenal in the competition (9 at Highbury). Potent.

30 – Since the start of last season, no Liverpool player has scored more goals in all competitions than Sadio Mane (30 – level with Mo Salah). Relentless.

16 – Man City have won 16 of their last 17 Premier League games kicking off at 3pm on a Saturday, with the only exception in that run being a 2-3 home loss against Crystal Palace in December 2018. Traditional.

24 – The average age of Chelsea’s starting XI against Sheffield United on Saturday was 24 years and 158 days – their youngest ever in a Premier League match. Whippersnappers.

50/50 – Christian Eriksen has now scored 50 Premier League goals – the first Danish player to reach this landmark – whilst also becoming the first Spurs player to
register both 50+ goals and assists for the club in the competition. Pastry.

12 – Liverpool have won 12 consecutive league games for the first time since October 1990 under Kenny Dalglish –they’ve never won 13 in a row in their league history.
Task.

50 – Roberto Firmino has become the first Brazilian to score 50 Premier League goals; he is the 9th player to reach the milestone for Liverpool – no other club has had more (level with Man Utd). Bullseye.

2 – Tammy Abraham is the first Englishman to score at least two goals in consecutive Premier League appearances for Chelsea since Frank Lampard in January 2010. Impression.

42 – Spurs have dropped 42 points from winning positions in the Premier League against Arsenal; 11 more than any against any other side in the competition. Crumble.

13 – Since the start of last season, Bournemouth’s Callum Wilson and Ryan Fraser have combined for 13 Premier
League goals, five more than any other duo. Tandem.
