Premier League stats: Kane, Lukaku, Cole, Fellaini, Man Utd, Spurs, Palace

Harry Kane
Harry Kane scored 13 goals for club and country in September

Harry Kane and Romelu Lukaku cannot stop scoring, Crystal Palace are 101 minutes away from setting an unwanted record, and Leicester have hit a slump under Craig Shakespeare.

Here are the 10 best stats from Saturday's Premier League action:

  • After Tottenham's 4-0 win over Huddersfield, Harry Kane's tally of 13 goals for Spurs and England in September equals the highest tallies in a single month by both Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
  • Kane is only the second player after former Arsenal forward Dennis Bergkamp to score two or more goals in three consecutive Premier League away games.
  • With his goal in Manchester United's 4-0 win over Crystal Palace, Romelu Lukaku equalled Andy Cole's record of scoring seven goals in his first seven Premier League games for the Red Devils.
  • Marouane Fellaini scored twice against Palace to take his tally to three goals from four shots in the Premier League in 2017-18 - more than he netted in the previous two seasons combined (two goals from 46 shots).
  • In the history of the Football League, only Halifax Town in 1990-91 (730 minutes) have gone on a longer run from the start of a season without a goal than Crystal Palace this season (630 minutes).
  • The Eagles remain the only team in Europe's top five leagues yet to score a league goal this season.
  • Stoke striker Saido Berahino has not scored for 31 hours and 48 minutes in the Premier League, after missing a penalty in the 2-1 win against Southampton.
  • Peter Crouch, who hit the winner for the Potters, is the oldest player to score in the Premier League this season (36 years and 243 days old).
  • Swansea slipped to a late loss at West Ham, meaning four of the 10 Premier League games this year that have featured winning goals scored in the 90th minute have ended in defeat for Paul Clement's side.
  • Following their 0-0 draw at Bournemouth, Leicester have won just once in their past 10 Premier League matches under Craig Shakespeare, after winning seven of their first 10.
