While numerous Premier League records were broken in 2022/23, but there were also some other extraordinary numbers across the 38-match campaign.
Here we take a look at some of the standout statistics from this season's competition.
- Manchester City scored 100 goals at the Etihad Stadium, equalling the record (set by themselves in 2018/19) for home goals in all competitions in a season by an English top-flight club.

- Nottingham Forest’s starting XI against Tottenham Hotspur in August was all-British, the first entirely British and Northern Irish starting XI for a Premier League match since Blackpool’s against Man Utd in May 2011.
- There were 21 goals scored in the three matches played on 8 May (Fulham 5-3 Leicester, Brighton & Hove Albion 1-5 Everton and Nott'm Forest 4-3 Southampton), the most on a single day with a maximum of three matches in the competition's history.
- There were 43 years and 308 days between the ages of Tottenham Hotspur's Ryan Mason and Crystal Palace boss Roy Hodgson when they met on the touchline, the biggest gap between two managers facing off in Premier League history.
- Nott'm Forest had only 18 per cent possession in their 1-0 win over Arsenal in May, the lowest tally on record (since 2003/04) for a winning team.
- With the second goal in Liverpool’s 6-1 victory at Leeds United, Mohamed Salah netted his 106th Premier League goal with his left foot, overtaking the record of 105 scored by another Liverpool legend, Robbie Fowler.
- Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane made his 300th Premier League appearance against Fulham, becoming just the second player in the competition’s history after Teddy Sheringham to score on his 100th, 200th and 300th appearance.
- In a 6-3 win over Manchester United, Phil Foden scored his 49th, 50th and 51st goals for Man City in all competitions – his first senior hat-trick. Aged 22 years and 127 days, he became the youngest player to reach 50 goals under Pep Guardiola, surpassing Lionel Messi (22y 164d).
- Wolverhampton Wanderers had eight different Portuguese players in their starting line-up at West Ham, the most different starters from a specific nation outside of England any team has had in a match.
