It was another mad Christmas period of Premier League action - and here are the long-awaited Premier League stats of the week from the holiday weekend.
The Premier League is a simple competition. 20 teams play each other over the course of a game week and at the end, Chelsea are always on top of the table. They recorded their thirteenth consecutive victory by beating Stoke and sit six points ahead of Liverpool.
But it wasn't all about them, as we dug through the best of the rest to find the five best stats from the New Years Premier League action.
Oh, oh, oh it's magic. Defooooe.
Jermain Defoe's goal against Liverpool was the 131st Premier League game in which he has scored.
That's madness when you think about it. Only four players have a better ratio in history - Wayne Rooney, Frank Lampard, Andy Cole and Alan Shearer.
Defoe has maybe a season and a half left in him to try and get past them. Considering how close he is to Rooney (147) Lampard and Cole (both 149), then the former England international could break yet another record. Provided of course, that Sunderland stay up. If they don't, it wouldn't be the worst idea for a club to invest in Defoe.
Just imagine he hadn't spent that time in Toronto, he could've been higher on the list. [Opta]
Paul Pogba has been directly involved in four goals in his last five Premier League appearances.
The Frenchman may finally be starting to live up to his pricetag. He's silenced a lot of his detractors anyway, as it was his goal which beat Middlesbrough at Old Trafford. That was to add to his goal against Crystal Palace, with a pair of assists in that period as well. [WhoScored]
We score one, you score two
Pep Guardiola has a pretty good reputation as a manager. His teams are renowned for fast, flowing counter attacks known as tiki-taka football. It's worked pretty well for him with three league titles on the spin in Spain as boss of Barcelona, a repeat of the feat in Germany with Bayern Munich and just the couple of Champions League titles thrown in.
However, there's one stat which shows just why tiki-taka isn't bringing as much success with Manchester City.
4 - Manchester City have kept just four clean sheets in their 19 Premier League games under Pep Guardiola. Porous.

Ah. That's a pretty big hole for the Spaniard to fix if he wants to continue his record of winning a league title in every country he's managed in. It seems having to defend against the mighty West Brom and Everton is tougher than battling Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund.
The stuff of Champions - not
Fairytales always have happy endings. That's why they're read to children. Leicester had their own fairytale last season as they dominated the Premier League, winning the title by ten points.
Now though, they're being brought back down to earth, sitting six points off the relegation zone after their draw at Middlesbrough. Again, Opta provided us with the hard facts about just how poor their defence has been.
What a difference N'Golo Kante makes.
21 - Leicester have collected just 21 points from their opening 20 games this season; the worst return by a reigning PL champion. Hunted.

Only one good player? Snod a problem
Considering they started the season by scrabbling to get a squad together, it's not really surprising to see Hull in the bottom three. They have only one hope of getting out of it and that's by keeping Robert Snodgrass as fit as possible.
9 - Robert Snodgrass has had a hand in nine of Hull's 17 Premier League goals this season (7 goals, 2 assists). Pivotal.

For anyone bad at maths, that's half of the Tigers tally. Meow.
