Twitter Web Client : 10 - In competitive games since the start of the 2018 World Cup, David de Gea has conceded 10 goals from his last 14 shots on target faced for Manchester United and Spain combined. Glum.

Twitter Web Client : 10 - This is only the tenth time in Premier League history that Manchester United have conceded three first half goals in a game, and the first time since October 2015 v Arsenal. Porous.

Twitter Web Client : 3 - After failing to score in their final 728 minutes of Premier League action away from home in 2017-18, it's taken Watford only three minutes to score their first away goal this season. Wait.

Twitter Web Client : 17 - Manchester City have scored in 17 of their last 18 Premier League games (47 goals in total), failing only against Huddersfield in May. Repeat?

Twitter Web Client : 19 - Alex Iwobis goal for Arsenal FC yesterday ended a sequence of 19 passes and involved 10 of their players (all except Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang); the longest move for a goal so far in the 2018-19 Premier League. Encouraging.

TweetDeck : 41 - Only Frank Lampard (90), Didier Drogba (55) and Gianfranco Zola (42) have more Premier League assists for Chelsea than Eden Hazard (41). Magician.

TweetDeck : 2 - Arsenal have scored more goals in the first half against Chelsea than in their last six Premier League visits to Stamford Bridge. Revolution.

TweetDeck : 8 - Henrikh Mkhitaryan has been directly involved in eight goals in his 13 Premier League games for Arsenal (3 goals, 5 assists), one more than in his last 25 for Manchester United (7). Revitalised.
