Key stats from Matchday 7 in the EPL as Arsenal end horrible 14-year record with 1-0 win vs Man Utd

November 2, 2020 By Ali M.
The Gunners set several records with their win at Old Trafford while Liverpool reached impressive milestones in Sunday's triumph over West Ham.

Matchday 7 of the Premier League is not quite yet done, with Fulham vs West Brom and Leeds vs Leicester set to be played on Monday. However, the weekend action is done and dusted and it has delivered us a few interesting results.

Man City were the first top-six side to take to the field, visiting Sheffield in Saturday's early kick-off, and Guardiola's men returned to winning ways albeit by a slim 1-0 score line. A few hours later, Chelsea turned up at Burnley and produced a confidence-boosting 3-0 victory over the Clarets, with summer signings Ziyech and Havert getting on the scoresheet.

Liverpool and Tottenham were also called into action, taking on West Ham and Brighton respectively. Both sides came away with victories via a 2-1 result. The standout fixture, however, was Man United vs Arsenal and while it was not a pure attacking game, the Gunners came away with a win and a performance, dominating the Red Devils at their home ground. Here are the key stats from the weekend action.

Arsenal end 14-year record, and many others, with 1-0 win at Man United

Arsenal traveled to Old Trafford for Sunday's highly-anticipated showdown with Man United. A lot was said about the Gunners' record not only at Old Trafford, but also away to a top-six side. Regardless, Mikel Arteta's men put in a disciplined performance and came out victorious, beating the Red Devils 1-0 at their home ground.

Aubameyang's penalty gave the visitors the win, ending several horrendous records for the north London giants. Firstly, this was their first league victory at Old Trafford since 2006, ending their 14-year wait for a win a top-flight win at the Theatre of Dreams. Additionally, this was the first time Arsenal beat a top-six side away from home since January 2015, ending a 29-game winless run.

Man United also set a few record but for all the wrong reasons. The Red Devils boast only seven points after six Premier League games, their worst start since Moyes' 2013-14 reign. Additionally, they are without a win in their first four home games of the season, the first time this has occurred since 1972-1973.

Ancelotti sets unwanted record in Everton's 2-1 loss to Newcastle

Everton visited Newcastle on Sunday with the sole aim of bouncing back from their 2-0 defeat at Southampton the previous weekend. The Toffees were the league leaders heading into this round and despite the absence of James Rodriguez, they were the favorites to win at St. James' Park. Unfortunately, the Merseyside outfit lost once again, this time falling to a 2-1 defeat. This was the first time Carlo Ancelotti had lost back-to-back league games in six years – it last occurred in September 2014 during his time at Real Madrid.

Diogo Jota and Liverpool set incredible feats after 2-1 win over West Ham

Liverpool welcomed West Ham on Saturday and it was yet another game in which the defending champions began shaky but won nonetheless. The Reds went 1-0 down first but quickly turned things around and won 2-1 – they even had a goal cancelled by VAR! This result was memorable for two reasons. First of all, it stretched their unbeaten home league run to 63 games, matching their all-time club record. Additionally, they became only the second team in EPL history to concede the first goal in three consecutive home games but win all three.

It was also a memorable match for Diogo Jota. The Portuguese ace came in as a sub to win the game and he did just that, scoring the decisive goal after seeing his initial attempt ruled out by VAR. He is now only the second Liverpool player in history to score in all of his first three appearances at Anfield in the league since Luis Garcia in October 2004.
