After action and excitement aplenty in every Premier League contest, take a look at some of the incredible stats from Matchweek 2.

Nott'm Forest 2-1 Sheff Utd

Taiwo Awoniyi became only the second Nottingham Forest player to score in six consecutive Premier League appearances, after Stan Collymore in March and April 1995.

Awoniyi's scoring run is now the longest ever by a Nigerian player in the competition, and is surpassed by only two Africans - Mohamed Salah and Emmanuel Adebayor (seven each).

Fulham 0-3 Brentford

Bryan Mbeumo has been directly involved in eight goals across his last five Premier League appearances (six goals and two assists), as many as in his previous 21 outings in the competition.

With his brace against Fulham, Mbeumo drew level with Joseph-Desire Job as the joint-top scorer from Cameroon in the Premier League, with 16 goals.

Liverpool 3-1 AFC Bournemouth

Trent Alexander-Arnold became the second-youngest Liverpool player to make 200 Premier League appearances, aged 24 and 316 days, behind Michael Owen in 2004 (24y and 34d).

Wolves 1-4 Brighton

Kaoru Mitoma’s selflessness in setting up Pervis Estupinan for Brighton's second goal saw the winger provide his seventh Premier League assist, more than any other Japanese player.

Spurs 2-0 Man Utd

Ange Postecoglou is unbeaten in his last 49 home league matches as a manager across spells with Yokohama F. Marinos, Celtic and current club Spurs (W41 D8). His last defeat came back in November 2020 with Yokohama against Kashima Antlers in the J1 League.

Man City 1-0 Newcastle

No player in Europe’s top seven leagues has created more chances than Phil Foden's nine so far this season. His total of seven from open play against Newcastle was his most ever in a Premier League match.

Aston Villa 4-0 Everton

Since making his Everton debut in August 2017, no goalkeeper has given away more penalties in the Premier League than Jordan Pickford's five. Pickford is now level with Ben Foster, while only Wilfred Ndidi (eight) and David Luiz (six) have conceded more among all players in the competition across this time.

West Ham 3-1 Chelsea

Nayef Aguerd became the first player to both score and receive a red card in the same Premier League match for West Ham United since Mark Noble against Liverpool in August 2015.

Crystal Palace 0-1 Arsenal

Bukayo Saka played in his 82nd consecutive Premier League match for Arsenal, equalling Paul Merson’s club record for the Gunners between February 1995 and February 1997.
