Blackburn Rovers hold the record for consecutive goals by different players from the start of a season. Rovers had 13 men scoring one after the other from the beginning of the 2001/02 season.
The Arsenal outfield players who have featured this season and could score their first goal at home to Everton and so threaten the record are: Aaron Ramsey, who got seven league goals last season, Hector Bellerin (two) as well as new signings Sokratis, Matteo Guendouzi, Lucas Torreira and Stephan Lichtsteiner.
The team with the highest number of different scorers in a season are Manchester United, who had 20 players get on the scoresheet on their way to the 2012/13 title.
Unai Emery’s team have already gone well past the total of six players who scored all of Arsenal’s Premier League goals in 1993/94, an all-time low in the competition.
