EPL roundup: Top stats from the recent round

EPL round-up: Tuchel's Chelsea and Arteta's Arsenal make history but for totally different reasons

April 27, 2021 By Ali M.
The Blues enjoyed a 1-0 win at West Ham over the weekend while the Gunners succumbed to a 1-0 loss at home to Everton.

Neither Man City nor Tottenham were in action in the Premier League in the recent round due to the Carabao Cup final, which the Citizens won 1-0 vs Spurs, but the rest of England's big teams took to the field from Friday through Monday. Arsenal kicked things off with their Friday clash with Everton at the Emirates Stadium, which they lost 1-0 courtesy of a horrendous Bernd Leno own goal. Liverpool suffered a slip-up as well the following day, drawing 1-1 at home to Newcastle in a huge blow to their top-four hopes. Chelsea, on the other hand, beat fellow Champions League contenders West Ham 1-0 to gain a three-point hold on fourth spot. Man Utd drew 0-0 with Leeds while Leicester pulled off a late 2-1 comeback victory over Crystal Palace. Here's everything you need to know about the recent round of fixtures.

EPL – top headline 

  • Arsenal set several unwanted records in their 1-0 defeat to Everton. That loss was their first at home in the Premier League to the Toffees in 25 years. Furthermore, that result saw Everton pull off the double against the Gunners for the first time 1985/86.

  • Man United's 0-0 draw vs Leeds was their seventh goalless stalemate in the EPL this term, breaking their record of most nil-nil draws in a single Premier League season since 1980/81 (8).

  • Burnley enjoyed a surprise 4-0 victory over Wolves, breaking their record for their largest away win since November 1965.

  • Chris Wood scored three of the four goals in the Clarets' unforgettable triumph, becoming the first New Zealand player to bag a hat-trick in the Premier League. Furthermore, he surpassed Ashley Barnes as the club's EPL top scorer.

  • Mohamed Salah netted the opening goal in Liverpool's disappointing 1-1 draw with Newcastle, becoming the first Reds player to score 20+ times in three different Premier League seasons.

  • Tuchel guided his team to a 1-0 win at West Ham, meaning he has gone unbeaten in all of his 10 away matches with the Blues. As a result, he has joined Claudio Ranieri (11) from Leicester as the only Premier League manager to go unbeaten in his first 10 away games across all competitions.

Top matches to watch in the EPL: April 30-May 03, 2021

Palace vs Man City: City return to action in the Premier League on Saturday having won the Carabao Cup final. Given that this fixture is sandwiched in between the two legs of their Champions League clash with PSG, Guardiola could opt to rotate his squad for this trip to Selhurst Park. Does a shock defeat await the champions elect? Tune in to find out.

Chelsea vs Fulham: Tuchel's men host Fulham on the back of their huge 1-0 win over West Ham. While Fulham are a relegation-battling team and pale in comparison to the quality of David Moyes' side, the Blues must be wary of the Cottagers as they mount a late attempt to survive the drop.

Manchester United vs Liverpool: This is the game to watch in the upcoming round. The Red Devils host bitter rivals Liverpool, last season's Premier League champions, who have been struggling as of late. However, it should be noted that Solskjaer's side are yet to beat a traditional top-six side at home this season. Do not miss this clash.
