There has been action and excitement aplenty in the Premier League so far this season, and several records have either been matched or surpassed along the way.

Here we take a look at some of the standout statistics from this season's competition so far.

Amazing stats of 2023/24 season

Dejan Kulusevksi’s goal for Tottenham Hotspur against Sheffield United, timed at 99 minutes and 53 seconds, was the latest match-winning goal on record in Premier League history, since records began in 2006/07.

Jarrod Bowen became the first player in Premier League history to score in each of his side's first six away matches in a single campaign, while he's also the first West Ham United player to score in six in a row on the road overall in the competition.

Brighton & Hove Albion forward Evan Ferguson became the first teenager to score 10+ Premier League goals in a single calendar year since Wayne Rooney, who netted 11 in 2005.

Manchester City star Erling Haaland reached 51 goal involvements in only 39 Premier League appearances in the 5-1 victory over Fulham, having scored 42 goals and added nine assists. That broke Andrew Cole’s record of reaching 50 combined goals and assists in 43 Premier League matches.

With one goal and four assists in the 6-1 win over AFC Bournemouth at the age of 21 years and 161 days, Jeremy Doku became the youngest player in Premier League history with five goal involvements in a single match, and the youngest player to assist four goals in a single game.

Chelsea’s Thiago Silva became only the fourth player to score a Premier League goal while aged 39 or older, along with Teddy Sheringham, Dean Windass and Ryan Giggs.

Nottingham Forest became the first side in Premier League history to go two goals ahead inside four minutes in a Premier League match and then go on to lose, doing so in the 3-2 defeat at Man Utd. The previous earliest a team had led 2-0 and lost was Ipswich Town against Charlton Athletic on New Year’s Day in 2002 - in the fifth minute and also going on to lose 3-2.

Brighton's James Milner is playing in his 22nd Premier League season, equalling the competition’s record held by Giggs for Manchester United.

Leandro Trossard’s opening goal against Burnley was Arsenal's 1,000th goal at Emirates Stadium in all competitions. They became just the third Premier League side to score 1,000 goals at a venue since the 2006/07 season, after Manchester City, with 1,138 at the Etihad Stadium and Chelsea, with 1,028 at Stamford Bridge.

Burnley lost their opening three Premier League matches of 2023/24, along with Everton, Luton Town and Sheff Utd. It is the first time in a top-flight season that four different sides have lost their opening three contests.

Newcastle United's 8-0 win at Sheff Utd is their biggest ever away win in the competition. They had eight different goalscorers, the first team to do so in a Premier League match. It is the second-biggest victory by an away team in Premier League history, beaten only by Leicester City's 9-0 triumph at Southampton in October 2019.

Bukayo Saka appeared in 87 consecutive Premier League matches for Arsenal, the outright longest run of any player for the club in the competition, going clear of Paul Merson's previous record of 82, set between 1995-1997. The first match in this run came against West Bromwich Albion back in May 2021. It ended when he missed last month's 1-0 win over Man City due to injury.

Brentford became the first side ever to win their first three Premier League trips to Chelsea, when they won 2-0 at Stamford Bridge in Matchweek 10.

Takehiro Tomiyasu became the first ever Asian player to score a Premier League goal for Arsenal.
