Paul Pogba reached for the first time ever a double digit in a single series (11)

Liverpool's unbeaten unbeaten run at Anfield continued with an impressive victory over Bournemouth, while Manchester United achieved their sixth away win in a row with a victory at Fulham.

Cardiff still earned the umpteenth late winner to steal all three points against Southampton and Watford Andre Gray ended his drought goal with the decisive blow to Vicarage Road.

Elsewhere, Wilfried Zaha scored his first league goal in the season when Eagles drew with West Ham, and Arsenal's series of goals conceded despite being able to win at Huddersfield .

Here are the best Saturday statistics of the Premier League:

  • Arsenal won the victory at Huddersfield but Sead Kolasinac's goal means that they are still the only team without a clean sheet in the Premier League this season.
  • The own goal was Huddersfield's first goal in 597 minutes in all competitions: the last was scored by Steve Mounie in the defeat against Burnley on 2 January.
  • Liverpool won 3-0 on Bournemouth, which means they are now unbeaten in their last 34 Premier League home games (24 wins, 10 draws).
  • Sadio Mane opened the scoring at Anfield – he scored in four consecutive Premier League appearances in a single season for the first time in his career.
  • Since his debut in Liverpool in August 2017, Andy Robertson has witnessed more Premier League goals (11) than any other defender – he placed Georginio Wijnaldum's fine final against Bournemouth.
  • Everton's loss means that they lost three Premier League games in a row for the first time since January 2018.
  • Andre Gray's tap-in for Watford against the Toffees ended a series of 10 Premier League appearances without a goal for the striker, his longest goal in the competition.
  • Southampton were 2-1 defeated by Cardiff, meaning they only kept a clean sheet in their last 16 Premier League games.
  • The 93rd-minute winner of Kenneth Zohore was the third seasonal winner of the Bluebirds for over 90 minutes – a tall figure along with the wolves.
  • Wilfried Zaha's 76th-minute tie at Selhurst Park was his first home goal in 11 games in all competitions for Crystal Palace – his previous home goal came against West Brom on the final day of season 2017-18.
  • Manchester United's 3-0 victory at Fulham means they have won six consecutive straight games in all competitions for the first time since May 2009.
  • Goalkeeper boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has earned 25 points in the Premier League since he took the lead in December (W8 D1), more than any other manager who managed in his first nine games to manage a single club in the competition.
