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

Arsenal are in freefall

The form guide tells a very dispiriting story about Arsenal's form. Four points from six games, which is 4th worst in the league on the form guide table. No wonder Arsenal fans are so edgy.

How bad is Everton's record at Anfield? This bad. 

Recommended

Probably the most distributed stat of the Premier League weekend. It's been 18 long years since Everton won at Anfield. A lot has changed in football in those 18 years. For Blackpool, a lot has come full circle.

Shakespeare in love

Craig Shakespeare is a late but worthy contender for manager of the year. He remains unbeaten with Leicester. Promotion talk has been banished and he's still in with an (unlikely) shout of winning the Champions League. After his brilliant start as Leicester boss, which featured 2-0 win over Stoke yesterday, he now finds himself in pretty exclusive company.

Marco Silva is a god at home

Hull continue their bitter fight to stay in the Premier League, and secured three valuable points at home beating West Ham yesterday. Marco Silva has turned the tide for Hull and he has to his credit one incredible lucky streak: he's unbeatable at home. Silva hasn't lost a home fixture as manager since 2014, a mere 39 matches ago. Four of Hull's last 8 matches are at the KC, and with the club 13 points off the magical 40 point mark, they will need every home point they can get.

Lukaku is deadliest when the game is nearly up

How good is Romelu Lukaku? The jury remains out. He was held without a goal in another massive game for Everton yesterday. Ahead of the match, Sky dug out an interesting stat on his scoring. Of the 21 league goals Lukaku has scored this season, nearly half have come after the 80 minute mark. Unfortunately this stat was no use for Lukaku or Everton yesterday, who scored 0 goals after the 80 minutes.
