4 – Arsenal have taken 4 points from five matches versus the current top 3 this season. Their only victory came at home to Liverpool back in November. This weekend, the Gunners host Manchester City.

5 – West Brom have won the fewest games in the Premier League so far this season. Despite only winning 5 of their 30 games, the Baggies remain 3 points outside of the relegation zone with help of their 13 draws. No team with the fewest wins has ever avoided relegation, but Coventry City (1995-96) and West Brom (2004-05) have both avoided relegation with the joint-fewest victories in a single Premier League season.

6 – Everton have a 6-point lead over Manchester United and with a game in hand. The Toffees, who travel to Fulham on Sunday have never finished above the Red Devils in the previous 21 seasons of the Premier League.

9 – Arsenal have only conceded 9 goals in their 15 matches at the Emirates Stadium this season, no team has conceded in few home games. However, the Gunners have conceded 3 in their last two home matches combined and play host to a Manchester City side that put 6 past them at the Etihad back in December.

10 – Manchester United's defeat at home to Manchester City midweek was their 10th of the season – the most the Red Devils have ever lost in a single Premier League season. David Moyes' side have 7 games remaining this season, starting with Aston Villa on Saturday.

10 – Steve Harper made his 10th substitute appearance in the Premier League midweek during Hull City's 2-1 loss at West Ham, following the second off of Allan McGregor. Only former Manchester United and West Ham goalkeeper Raimond van der Gouw (11) has been subbed on more times between the sticks.

11 – Liverpool had won 11 of their last 12 Premier League matches at Anfield, drawing the other with Aston Villa. Brendan Rodgers' high-flying Reds host Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.

19 – Crystal Palace have scored the fewest goals in the Premier League this season. Tony Pulis' side host Chelsea this weekend who have conceded a league-low 23 goals.

21 – Liverpool have scored in the first-half of a record 21 consecutive Premier League matches. The last time Brendan Rodgers' side failed to score in the first half (and in a match) was during their 2-0 loss at Arsenal back in November.

508 – Manchester City have gone 508 minutes since they last conceded a goal in the Premier League, during their 1-0 loss at home to Chelsea at the beginning of February. Martin Demichelis has played all of those minutes. The Citizens travel to Arsenal on Saturday.
