10 interesting stats heading into Premier League Matchday 22

Liverpool, West Ham, Everton, Swansea City, Manchester United, Arsenal, Cardiff City, Fulham and Chelsea all feature.

0.65 – Luis Suárez has scored 60 Premier League goals in the 93 matches he has turned out for Liverpool.

This goals per game ratio is bettered only by Thierry Henry (0.68) and Gary Bull (1 goal in 1 game) in Premier League history.

2 – West Ham have not won back-to-back Premier League matches in a single season since 2010-11. Sam Allardyce's side were 2-0 winners at Cardiff City last weekend and go in search of a second win a row when they entertain Newcastle on Saturday. The Magpies have lost each of their last three Premier League mattches, failing to score a single goal.

3 – Last weekend Gareth Barry scored his third Premier League goal of the season with only his 10th attempt on the season. Everton were 2-0 winners at home to Norwich City.

7 – Swansea City are winless in their last seven Premier League matches ahead of Sunday's home tie with Tottenham Hotspur. Tim Sherwood is unbeaten in his five Premier League matches in charge of Spurs, winning four.

9 – Manchester United have picked up just 9 points (2W 3D) in 10 matches against current top half sides this season.

10 – Arsenal have won all 10 Premier League matches they have led at half-time this season. The Gunners held on to a 2-1 victory at Aston Villa last weekend after leading 2-0 after 45 minutes.

11 – Cardiff City have been shut out in 11 of their 21 Premier League matches. No team has failed to score on more occasions than the Bluebirds this season. Ole Gunnar Solskjær's side travel to Manchester City on Saturday, with the hosts having kept clean sheets in six of their 10 home Premier League matches this season.

19% – Following Ole Gunnar Solskjær's defeat on his debut at home to West Ham last weekend, Norwegian managers Egil Olsen and Solskjær have a combined 19% win ratio in the Premier League, meaning Norwegian managers have the lowest win rate amongst all managers to have taken charge in England's top flight since it rebranded. Solskjær won't be expected to pick up any points this weekend when his side travel to Manchester City on Saturday.

24 – No team has conceded more goals on the road than Fulham (24) in the Premier League this season. The Cottagers can expect that number to increase this weekend when they travel to Arsenal who are on a four-game winning streak in the Premier League, scoring 8 goals during that run.

99 – José Mourinho is one victory away from reaching the century mark in the Premier League. The Chelsea manager has achieved 99 victories in only 141 matches. Manchester United visit Stamford Bridge on Sunday.
