2018-19 Premier League game-week 23: Here're the records broken
Game-week 23 of the Premier League gave us some fascinating results. Fans were thrilled to get some goal-fests coming their way. Liverpool sealed a thrilling 4-3 victory against Crystal Palace in an action-packed blockbuster at Anfield. Manchester United continued their impressive run under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. The most pivotal result of the night was Arsenal blanking Chelsea 2-0. Here are the records broken.
Solskjaer became the first manager to win his first six league games in charge of United. The Old Trafford club beat Brighton 2-1 and it saw Ole register his seventh successive win across all competitions. Solskjaer is also the third manager in EPL history to win his first six games. Previously, Carlo Ancelotti with Chelsea and Pep Guardiola with Manchester City achieved the same.
United mid-fielder Pogba scored his eighth goal of the season in the Premier League this season. He equalled his best tally in a single season in the top five leagues in Europe (eight with Juventus in 2014-15 and 2015-16).
Arsenal beat Chelsea in a pulsating London derby. This victory ensured that the Gunners notched consecutive home games against Chelsea in all competitions since February 2004. The Blues were blunt on front of goal. Marcos Alonso hit Chelsea's first shot on target in the 82nd minute. Gunners skipper Laurent Koscielny became the first Arsenal defender to score 20 Premier League goals.
Liverpool became only the third team in Premier League history to score 1,000 goals in home games. Only Manchester United and Chelsea have achieved the same feat before. Palace keeper Julian Speroni (39 years 246 days) became the oldest player to make an appearance in the EPL this season. Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah scored his 50th EPL goal.
