On another fascinating weekend of Premier League football, the stats tell their own story. Here is the story they've chosen to tell...

Dele Alli might be the best British player of the past 25 years

Alli continued his incredible season yesterday with a goal against Watford. Alli turns 21 tomorrow and he'll get the key to the door knowing he is light years ahead many of the English superstars he grew up watching.

Jon Walters owns Liverpool

Recommended

Jon Walters, who comes from Everton stock, saves his best for Liverpool every season. His first-half headed goal was his seventh career league goal against Liverpool. It's a phenomenal run.

Lukaku's scoring Premier League streak has put 5 Premier League clubs to shame

We've been commenting on Romelu Lukaku's brilliant scoring run in this column this season. The Belgian striker bagged two more as Everton brushed aside Leicester yesterday. Not only is Lukaku the top goalscorer in the Premier League this season with 23 goals, including 13 since New Year's Day, he has now outscored five Premier League teams in 2017, and one (Boro) for the entire 2016-17 season. We're not sure if this says more about Lukaku or the crap teams in the League.

Phil Coutinho is the Premier League's king of Brazil

Coutinho came off the bench to score his 30th Liverpool league goal yesterday. Amazingly, Coutinho is now the leading Brazilian scorer in Premier league history. This stat reflects badly on Elano, Robinho, Juninho and the scores of Brazilian talent who've come to England.

Eden Hazard never rarely finishes a match

Eden Hazard is in ridiculous form at the moment, but this stat seemed intriguing: Hazard has only gone the distance in 9 league games this season for Chelsea. Conte's policy of giving Hazard rest time seems to be paying dividends as Hazard has been outstanding as Chelsea look to have the title wrapped up already.
