Five key stats from the Premier League: Featuring Manchester United and Tottenham

The Premier League’s four title contenders took another big leap ahead of the pack this weekend, with Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City and Arsenal all notching wins.

At the bottom, there was a win for Swansea to move them off the base of the table, in a thrilling 5-4 triumph over Swansea.

But as always, there is always more to discuss than just results. Here are five of the best statistics from the 13th match of the Premier League season.

Paul Robinson stepped in for Tom Heaton for Burnley this weekend, making some smashing stops in a 2-1 defeat to Manchester City.

It was his first Premier League match for 1,664 days, a gap of over four years, but it was not the biggest number seen at Turf Moor.

Dean Marney’s sweetly struck opener was his first Premier League goal since November 2009, 2,558 days ago, making Robinson’s last appearance look comparatively recent.

He’ll hope to get another one a bit sooner.
