Not in the starting XI for the first time since 7 December 2014, Morgan's streak came to a halt after 88 successive starts, falling 27 short of the record for an outfield player, set by Matt Holland who made 115 between 2000 and 2004.
|All-time outfield||Starts||Active players||Starts|
|Matt Holland||115||Wes Morgan||88|
|Wayne Bridge||113||Darren Fletcher||82|
|Frank Lampard||112||Heurelho Gomes||66|
|Alan Shearer||107||Steve Cook||55|
|Jonathan Walters||102||Ben Mee||53|
Holland is only 10th on the overall list.
The player with the most consecutive Premier League starts is Brad Friedel, who started between the posts in 310 PL matches in a row between 2004 and 2012, for Blackburn Rovers, Aston Villa and Tottenham Hotspur.
Friedel is one of eight goalkeepers in the top nine scores, with David James doing so on two separate occasions.
