Having played four matches in the 2017-18 season so far, Manchester United stand at the top of the Premier League table with ten points. The week saw some interesting games, with Manchester City thrashing Liverpool 5-0 and Crystal Palace manager being fired in just four games.
Here are some stats from the week from the tournament:
– Sergio Aguero became the top non-European goalscorer in Premier League history with 126 goals

– Asmir Begovic has made more saves (22) than any other goalkeeper in Europe’s top 5 leagues this season
– Wayne Rooney became only the second player after Gareth Barry to receive 100 yellow cards in the Premier League
– Romelu Lukaku remains at the top of the table with most number of goals at 4, Henrikh Mkhitaryan with five assists
– Crystal Palace have committed more errors that have led to an opposition goal (3) than any other team in Europe’s top 5 leagues this season
– Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Mesut Ozil1 have together created joint-most chances this season. The former has five assists, the latter none
– Liverpool’s goalkeepers have saved the lowest percentage (47%) of opposition shots on target of any PL team this season
– Frank de Boer is the first permanent manager in Premier League history to not see his team score a single goal during his reign
– No player has scored more goals in their first 4 games for Manchester United than Romelu Lukaku (same as Saha, Van Persie and Zlatan Ibrahimovic earlier)
