Premier League quick stats: Liverpool, Rice, Leicester City, Cathcart

Liverpool celebrate scoring against Brighton
Liverpool have played 22 Premier league games this season, winning 18 and drawing three

Liverpool recorded a milestone clean sheet under Jurgen Klopp to open up a seven-point lead at the top of the Premier League, while Burnley beat Fulham without managing a shot on target.

Cardiff and Huddersfield have attempted 36 shots across two games this season - yet both games have ended goalless. Saturday's result at the Cardiff City Stadium allowed Southampton, who won 2-1 at Leicester, to move out of the relegation zone.

Craig Cathcart became the first player to score in both nets in a Premier League match for more than a year in Watford's 2-1 win at Crystal Palace. And there were differing fortunes for two teenagers - West Ham's Declan Rice and Southampton's Yan Valery.

Meanwhile, Arsenal fans are still wondering when they will be leading away from home in a Premier League match after losing 1-0 at West Ham.

Here are the best of Saturday's Premier League stats:

  • Against Brighton, Liverpool recorded a 50th clean sheet in the Premier League under Jurgen Klopp in their 128th match, with 42% of those having come since Virgil van Dijk's league debut in January 2018.
  • Of the past 10 Premier League penalties taken by left-footed players, six have failed to score - the other four have all been scored by Liverpool's Mohamed Salah.
  • Burnley have become the first Premier League side to score at least two goals in a match without having a single shot on target since the start of the 2003/04 season.
  • Fulham are the first side to score at least two own-goals in the first half of a Premier League match since Everton did so against Southampton back in April 2014.
  • Both Premier League matches between Cardiff and Huddersfield have ended goalless this season despite 36 shots attempted across the two games.

  • Watford's Craig Cathcart became the first player to both score a goal and an own goal in the same Premier League game since Ryan Shawcross in December 2017.
