Premier League: Stats, facts, and team news ahead of matchday eight

October 4, 2019 By Michelle Bonsu
Here's all you need to know heading into matchday eight of the 2019/2020 Premier League season.

As things stand, Liverpool still maintains a five point gap over the chasing pack thanks to their perfect 100 per cent winning record. On the opposite end of the spectrum, Watford still have to win a game and languish at the bottom of the table with two points from their first seven games. Impressively, Leicester City sit in third place after a strong start to the season. Will the Foxes, led by none other than Brendan Rogers, end the Reds' unbeaten run this term when they head to Anfield?

Here's all you need to know ahead of matchday eight.

Team news: Who's missing out on matchday eight?

Here are some of the players who are either ruled out or in major doubt for matchday eight:

  • Arsenal: Alexandre Lacazette (Ankle Injury)
  • Chelsea: Ruben Loftus-Cheek (Calf Injury); Emerson (Thigh Injury); Antonio Rudiger (Groin/Pelvic Injury)
  • Liverpool: Xherdan Shaqiri (Calf Injury); Joel Matip (Muscular Injury); Alisson (Calf Injury); Nathaniel Clyne (Knee Injury)
  • Manchester City: Leroy Sane (Knee Injury); John Stones (Thigh Injury); Kevin De Bruyne (Groin Injury); Aymeric Laporte (Knee Injury)
  • Manchester United: Eric Bailly (Knee Injury); Anthony Martial (Thigh Injury); Paul Pogba (Ankle Injury); Jesse Lingard (Thigh Injury); Timothy Fosu-Mensah (Knee Injury); Aaron Wan-Bissaka (Illness)
  • Tottenham: Giovani Lo Celso (Groin Injury); Serge Aurier (Suspended); Ryan Sessegnon (Thigh Injury)

Stats and facts: What's at stake ahead of matchday eight?

  •  Tottenham are winless in nine Premier League away games (D2 L7) since beating Fulham in January.
  • Liverpool are unbeaten in their last 43 home league games (W33 D10) which is the longest current run in the top five European leagues
  • Interestingly, the Reds' previous best of 63 between February 1978-December 1980 was eventually ended by none other than...Leicester
  • Leicester striker Jamie Vardy has scored seven Premier League goals against Liverpool. Only two players, Andrew Cole and Thierry Henry have scored more (11 and 8 respectively) versus the Reds in league history

Key talking points ahead of matchday eight

Will Leicester prove to be Liverpool's stumbling block?

Perhaps. They're the side who ended the Reds' unbeaten run back in the day, and Brendan Rogers will have an axe to grind after being fired by Liverpool a few years ago. In addition, only two teams - Manchester City and Liverpool - have picked up more points than he has since his appointment, and right now, Leicester sit in a very impressive third in the Premier League table, ahead of Chelsea, Arsenal, and Tottenham.

That's not to say they can beat Jurgen Klopp's men outright as the Champions League holders have been in strong form, but they could possibly cause them to drop points for the first time all season.

Can Tottenham get back on track after humiliating defeat to Bayern?

Bayern aren't the side that once won the Champions League, but they certainly showed they are still a team to be feared as they crushed Champions League runners up Tottenham mid week. Mauricio Pochettino still has his job, but there are already questions about his feature. Spurs will be keen on getting back to winning ways before the international hiatus interrupts league games once again after this round. And Brighton will present, on paper, at least, the perfect opponents, as they're never beaten Spurs in four prior Premier League meetings.
