EPL Week 32

For the remainder of the season, I will be travelling with a back up laptop so please excuse any shortfall in posts and site updates

Match of the Day

Although Stoke and Southampton did themselves no favours, at least there is a relegation battle. Champs and top 4 now look sorted after Spurs’ come-from-behind victory at Stamford Bridge

WBA pick up the first 8 game losing sequence by any club entirely within this season. Palace lost first seven games after dropping the final game of 2016/17

Klopp tops the century mark

Jurgen Klopp’s arrival at Liverpool engendered a lot of hype and by and large it has been justified, particularly if they can overcome the odds and defeat Man City in the Champions League

Klopp notched a first win in his 100th Premier Game in charge. Check out how he matches up to all others who held the reigns of a PL club

Zoom and hover for individual Manager’s name

At the 100 game mark, Klopp seventh on the list with 190 points, sandwiched between two Liverpool playing icons, Dalglish(191) and Keegan(188)

Mourinho was in a class of his own - and after 280 games still holds a 17 point edge over his closest rival, Ferguson. I have highlighted Guardiola, as he does hold the second-best record for his time in charge

Double trouble

Manchester United scored two goals inside 20 minutes to effectively finish off Swansea but City outdid them again with a brace against Everton within a dozen ticks,

However, at the time of writing, United have the edge over the season as a whole with a 11 minute opening blast against Liverpool

Chelsea can trump both Manchester teams with 6 and 9 minute doubles en route to routs of Brighton and Stoke, respictively

Here are each teams earliest two goal tally at this stage of the season

At the time of writing Leicester’s are the only team to have lost after posting their quickest two goal tally. In the very first game of the season, they scored twice within 29 minutes against Arsenal but ended up on the wrong end of a 4-3 scoreline
