EPL 2018-19: Here're all the records broken on match-day 25
The English Premier League match-day 25 saw a resurgence of performance from the top clubs who had faltered last week. Chelsea have come back in astonishing fashion after getting mauled by Bournemouth last week. The most looked-forward match of the week between Arsenal and Manchester City, went in the Cityzens' direction. Here're all the records on match-day 25 of the Premier League.
Manchester United won their match against Leicester City with a score of 1-0. United have managed to win five away games on a trot for the first time since 2012. United are the side who have inflicted the most number of EPL losses on Leicester - 17. Since his debut, Marcus Rashford has scored more goals (42) than any other Manchester United player.
Heung-min Son scored the only goal of the match which saw Tottenham win the fixture against Newcastle United with a scoreline of 1-0. Tottenham have created history by not drawing in 29 consecutive EPL matches, the highest in history, beating Bolton's 28 match record. Since they won the 1955 FA Cup final, Newcastle have lost in their last eight visits to Wembley.
Eden Hazard and Gonzalo Higuain scored a brace each to see Chelsea defeat Huddersfield with a scoreline of 5-0. In their EPL matches played at home, Chelsea have managed to lose just one in the last 16. Higuain's brace saw him take his goal tally under Sarri to 38 in 37 matches. Kante provided two assists in the match, his first in top-flight football.
Since 1937, this is the first time City have managed to win four consecutive top-flight league matches against Arsenal. Sergio Aguero has scored 10 hat-tricks in the Premier League, trailing behind Alan Shearer's 11. Raheem Sterling is the seventh-youngest player in EPL history to reach the mark of being involved in 100 EPL goals. Since 2014, City's first goal was the quickest Arsenal conceded.
