Chelsea, Man United register EPL victories: List of key numbers
Gameweek 29 of the Premier League had two blockbuster matches on a Super Sunday. Chelsea faced Carlo Ancelotti's Everton at Stamford Bridge and registered a 4-0 victory. Meanwhile, Manchester United scripted the league double over arch-rivals Manchester City at Old Trafford (2-0). Both Chelsea and United kept their fight on for a top-four finish. Here is the statistical review.
How did Chelsea vs Everton pan out?
Chelsea mid-fielder Mason Mount ended an 18-game goal drought by firing past Jordan Pickford at his near post. Pedro scored his maiden EPL goal of the season after getting an assist from Ross Barkley. After the break, Willian found the bottom corner with a low shot and Olivier Giroud impressed at large with a tap-in from a short corner.
Key numbers from the Chelsea vs Everton encounter
Chelsea have seen English players score a total of 21 goals in the Premier League this season. The versatile Pedro scored and assisted in the first 21 minutes of this game. Prior to this, he had only been involved in two goals in his previous 21 league matches. Everton managed just three shots. This was their fewest in a league game since December 2017.
How did the Manchester derby pan out?
Manchester City goal-keeper Ederson let his side down after allowing Anthony Martial's shot go past his body from a quick Bruno Fernandes free-kick in the 30th minute. In the dying stages, Ederson threw a clearance straight to Scott McTominay, who showed great technique to score from a long-range finish to help United get to 45 points and move up to fifth.
United continue unbeaten run, Guardiola scripts unwanted record
The Red Devils are unbeaten in their last 10 games (W7 D3). This is the second time Pep Guardiola suffered three defeats against a specific opponent in a single season (also against Liverpool in 2017-18). Since making his debut on February 1, United's Bruno Fernandes has been directly involved in more goals in the EPL than any other player (2 goals and 3 assists).
