Top stats from Boxing Day action in the Premier League as Arsenal win big vs Chelsea

December 27, 2020 By Ali M.
A total of six games were played on Saturday, with Arsenal beating Chelsea 3-1 in the highly-anticipated London Derby while Leicester and Man Utd played out a 2-2 draw.

Boxing Day came and went by, offering Premier League fans several exciting games, as is the tradition in the English top-flight. A total of six matches were played on December 26, 2020, with the likes of Leicester vs Man United and Arsenal vs Chelsea taking place. 

The Red Devils put in a lovely performance at the King Power Stadium but dropped two points as they played out a 2-2 draw thanks to a late Axel Tuanzebe own goal. The out-of-form Gunners, on the other hand, hosted title challengers Chelsea and beat them 3-1 thanks to goals from Lacazette, Xhaka, and Saka.

However, that was not all. Man City were also in action, beating Newcastle 2-0 at home while Aston Villa and Everton registered 3-0 and 1-0 wins over Palace and Sheffield, respectively, to climb up the table. Here are the key stats from the Boxing Day fixtures.

Rashford reaches lovely record, Bruno Fernandes follows in the footsteps of CR7 after 2-2 Leicester draw

Man United traveled to the King Power Stadium in Saturday's early kick-off and went a goal ahead twice only to settle on a draw. Marcus Rashford opened the scoring, burying a lovely pass from Bruno Fernandes past Kasper Schmeichel to break the deadlock. That strike was his 50th goal for the Red Devils in the Premier League, becoming the third-youngest Man Utd player to reach the half-a-century mark after club legends Wayne Rooney and Cristiano Ronaldo.

As for Fernandes, he scored his team's second strike of the day, taking his EPL tally this season to 10 goals. As a result, he became the first Portuguese player in this competition to score 10+ goals in a single season since none other than Cristiano Ronaldo himself.

Aston Villa reign supreme in Crystal Palace clash as defensive core remains strong

Aston Villa hosted Crystal Palace and beat the visitors 3-0, an impressive result given the home side were reduced to 10 men after Tyrone Mings first-half sending off. What was even more amazing was the fact that the Villans kept yet another clean sheet, their eighth off the season and fourth in a row, the most shutouts any club has registered this term.

Arsenal close in on Man Utd record after 3-1 Boxing Day win over Chelsea

The 3-1 win over Chelsea was impressive for Arsenal, ending a seven-game winless run for the club and lifting them six points away from the relegation zone. That victory was their 10 successive triumph on Boxing Day, bringing them closer to the all-time record for most consecutive December 26 triumphs by a single club which is held by Man Utd (12).

Man City: the best defense in Europe's top-five leagues?

Sheffield's misery continues after 1-0 loss to Everton

Sheffield cannot catch a break. The Blades are yet to win a single game this season, suffering their 13th defeat of the campaign with the 1-0 loss to Everton. This mean's Chris Wilder's side are winless in their opening 15 matches of the season, with only QPR (16 in 2012-13) suffering a worse run.
