Starting stat: Everton's Arsenal agony
I saw Arsenal beat Everton 2-0 on Super Sunday and they have now won more points (68) and scored more goals (64) at home to Everton in the Premier League than against any other club. Their record is: P27 W21 D5 L1.
They are unbeaten in their last 23 Premier League games at home to Everton (W19 D4) and their last 25 in all competitions. In the league they have now won the last five (six in all competitions).
Everton's only away league win over Arsenal remains a 2-1 success in January 1996 when Joe Royle was the Everton manager and Bruce Rioch was the Arsenal boss. One of Everton's scorers that day, Graham Stuart, was at the game at the Emirates on Sunday.
Overall, Everton have lost 66 away league games at Arsenal, 15 more than away to any other club.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette became the first Arsenal players to score more than once for the club in the Premier League this season. Prior to Sunday, Arsenal's 10 goals had come from 10 different players, including an own goal by Issa Diop of West Ham.
Aubameyang has now scored 10 goals in 11 games at the Emirates, which leads us to our first question…
Three-quarters of Alexandre Lacazette's Premier League goals have come at the Emirates. Which Premier League player has scored most of his goals at home? Steve via e-mail
MARTIN SAYS: Lacazette's fine strike in the 2-0 win against Everton was his 12th at the Emirates in the Premier League. But Georginio Wijnaldum likes his home comforts most, scoring 18 of his 19 Premier League goals at home, at 94.74 per cent. His first away goal came just the previous weekend live on Sky against Tottenham at Wembley.
Of Premier League players to score a minimum of 15 goals, David Wetherall is next with 14 out of 15 (93.33 per cent), followed by Gary Penrice (15 out of 17 - 88.24 per cent) and Michael Carrick (20 out of 24 - 83.33 per cent).
At the other end of the scale, Johan Elmander scored 14 of his 19 Premier League goals away from home (73.68 per cent), followed by Michael Bridges (15 of 22 - 68.18 per cent) and Marcus Bent (27 of 40 - 67.50 per cent).
What is Liverpool's longest unbeaten run at home in the Premier League? Andy, Merseyside
MARTIN SAYS: Saturday's 3-0 win over Southampton means Liverpool are unbeaten in their last 24 Premier League games at Anfield, winning 16 and drawing nine since a 2-1 defeat by Crystal Palace in April 2017. Their next home game is live on Sky Sports against Man City.
This is their best run in the competition since August 2009 (31 games), but that comes well short of their all-time unbeaten run.
Liverpool were unbeaten in an incredible 63 home league games between February 1978 and January 1981 under Bob Paisley, which included the 1978/79 and 1979/80 First Division title victories.
The eventual defeat came against Leicester, as goals from Pat Byrne and Jim Melrose gave them a 2-1 win having been a goal behind at Anfield.
Their next-best unbeaten run came under Bill Shankly, which lasted 34 games between March 1970 and December 1971.
Newcastle never seem to do well in London. Of all the Premier League sides, who has struggled the most playing in the capital? Paul, Tyneside
MARTIN SAYS: Newcastle's 0-0 draw at Crystal Palace means they have failed to win 17 of their last 20 Premier League games in London, winning three, drawing three and losing 14.
But of those clubs outside of London who have played at least 20 Premier League games in the capital, Newcastle don't fare too badly compared to some.
Of Derby's 38 top-flight games in the capital, they won just once, a 2-1 victory at Charlton in September 1998, a win rate of just 2.63 per cent. West Brom won just seven of their 66 games in London at 10.61 per cent, while Stoke won six out of 53 (11.32 per cent).
Newcastle's win rate of 25.38 per cent is eighth highest of those clubs situated outside of London, with Manchester United topping that list (65 wins out of 145 games - 44.83 per cent).
Swansea score surprisingly high in those ranks, fourth-highest with 11 wins in 38 games (28.95 per cent).
Worst Premier League away record in London (non-London sides, minimum 20 matches):
- Derby - 2.63% (1 win in 38)
- West Brom - 10.61% (7 wins in 66)
- Stoke - 11.32% (6 wins in 53)
- Middlesbrough - 13.25% (11 wins in 83)
- Burnley - 13.64% (3 wins in 22)
- Wigan - 13.95% (6 wins in 43)
- Watford - 14.81% (4 wins in 27)
- Birmingham - 15.79% (6 wins in 38)
- Sunderland - 16.28% (14 wins in 86)
- Norwich - 17.02% (8 wins in 47)
Has any Englishman scored more goals than Billy Sharp since he rejoined Sheffield United? Keith via e-mail
MARTIN SAYS: Sharp's goal in Sheffield United's 3-2 win over Preston was his 68th league goal in 132 games since rejoining from Leeds in the summer of 2015, and only one English player has scored more in that time.
That man is Tottenham's Harry Kane, who has 87 goals in 111 games during the same period.
John Akinde has 60 for Barnet and Lincoln in 130 games, while Leicester's Jamie Vardy has 59 in 112 and Danny Hylton has 57 in 125 for Oxford and Luton.
