Liverpool and Man United make history -- Weekend stats from EPL Matchweek 29

March 9, 2020 By Ali M.
Man United recorded an excellent Manchester Derby victory over City while Liverpool returned to winning ways with their victory over Bournemouth.

The weekend action in the Premier League has wrapped up, with Leicester vs Aston Villa being the only remaining game. The games on Saturday and Sunday was nothing short of thrilling, with Man United's 2-0 win over Man City being the standout fixture.

The Citizens was the only big six side to lose a game over the weekend but they weren't the only ones to suffer a disappointing result as Tottenham drew 1-1 with Burnley. Chelsea, meanwhile, thrashed Everton 4-0 to strengthen their grip on fourth while Arsenal and Liverpool both enjoyed slim victories.

Here are the top stats from the weekend games.

Man United 2-0 Man City – the key figures from the Red Devils' victory

Man United might still be 12 points behind Man City in the standings but after their 2-0 win over the Citizens, the bragging rights in Manchester go to the Red Devils. Sunday's victory means they have completed the league double over their bitter rivals, the first time they have achieved this in 10 years. It is also the first time they have completed the league double over both Man City and Chelsea in the same season since 1960-61.

As for Man City, this was their seventh defeat in the league. Never has Pep Guardiola lost more matches in a single campaign, making this his worst season as a manager.

Martial and Sterling reach lovely feats in Sunday's Manchester Derby

The game handed opposite results to Martial and Sterling but both came away from the game having recorded excellent feats. Starting off with the Man United attacker, he became the first player to score both home and away against Man City in a single season since a certain legend by the name of Cristiano Ronaldo. 

Additionally, the Frenchman has now scored in three consecutive Premier League Manchester Derby starts, becoming only the second Man Utd player in history to achieve this since the iconic Eric Cantona.

Sterling, meanwhile, made his 250th top-flight appearance in this match. He is the fourth youngest player to achieve this after Wayne Rooney, James Milner, and Gareth Barry.

Chelsea 4-0 Everton – a historic defeat for Ancelotti

Chelsea's clash with Everton was expected to be a tricky encounter; however, the Blues ran riot, thrashing the Toffees 4-0. This was a historic defeat for Ancelotti, a former manager at Stamford Bridge, as it equaled the heaviest loss he has ever suffered as a coach – Real Madrid's 4-0 loss to Atletico.

Burnley 1-1 Tottenham – disappointing day for Spurs bur a memorable one for Dele Alli

Tottenham lost further ground in the top-four race, trailing Chelsea by seven points now after the draw. Despite this, it was a memorable game for Alli who scored his 50th Premier League goals, becoming the second-youngest Spurs player to reach this feat after Harry Kane.

Liverpool 2-1 Bournemouth – Klopp's men make history

It was not a convincing win, but it was a win nonetheless. Liverpool recorded their 22nd straight win at Anfield, smashing the Premier League record for the longest home winning streak in English top-flight history.
