Elsewhere, Arsenal maintained their historic goalscoring record against Everton while Kasper Scheichel overtook his legendary father in one aspect after Leicester's defeat to Man City.

Matchday 27 in the Premier League is all but done and dusted, with Liverpool vs West Ham being the only game left to play. The weekend round of games brought good news for some and bad for others, with the likes of Man City and Chelsea winning their respective top-six ties.

The Citizens took on Leicester and came away with a 1-0 victory at the King Power Stadium while the Blues hosted Tottenham and won 2-1 to boost their top-four odds. Man United and Arsenal also enjoyed victories, beating Watford and Everton respectively to remain in the chase for a European berth.

Here are the top stats from the weekend.

Chelsea 2-1 Tottenham – Lampard makes history in London Derby victory

Despite the controversy surrounding Lo Celso’s stamp on Azpilicueta and VAR’s failure to send him off, Chelsea went on to win the game this time around, beating Spurs 2-1. The most important thing about this win is the fact that the Blues pulled three points ahead in the top-four race but the win also saw Frank Lampard make history.

Having led Chelsea to a 2-0 win over Tottenham in their first encounter this season, Frank’s Chelsea side became the first team to beat a team managed by Mourinho both home and away in a single season. So far, Lampard has crossed paths with the Special One three times and has won all of those ties – once with Derby and twice now with the Blues.

Leicester 0-1 Man City – stats prove how poor Guardiola’s defense has been, Schmeichel overtakes his father

Despite the VAR controversy in this game, Man City came away with a win nonetheless. A Gabriel Jesus goal was enough to decide the game, with the Citizens triumphing 1-0. This was only the second time Guardiola’s men registered back-to-back clean sheets in the league, proving how poor they have been defensively this season.

Although they lost, one man who could come out of the game with his head high was Kasper Scheichel. The goalkeeper saved a penalty from Sergio Aguero to keep his team in the game, taking his tally of spot-kick saves to four, one more than his legendary father.

Man United 3-0 Watford – Bruno Fernandes makes history with first Red Devils goal

Bruno Fernandes has impressed for Man United and on Sunday, the Portuguese ace got his first goal for his new employers. The midfielder converted a first-half spot kick to break the deadlock, all the meanwhile becoming the first Red Devils player in history to score his first goal for the goal courtesy of a penalty.

Arsenal 3-2 Everton – The Gunners maintain historic goalscoring record against the Toffees

Despite conceding within the first minute of play, Arsenal managed to comeback and beat Everton 3-2 at the Emirates on Sunday. The Gunners maintained their historic goalscoring record against the Toffees, taking their overall tally against them in the league to 110 goals, eight more than any team has scored against an opponent in the English top-flight history.
