Arsenal and Manchester City racked up comfortable wins to continue their battle at the top of the Premier League table, with Tottenham also not far behind following a high-scoring win over Leicester. Real Madrid came up trumps in El Derbi, defeating Atletico Madrid to go top of LaLiga, although Barcelona ensured they weren't far behind with a dominant win over Elche.

There were shocks in store across Europe, as Bayern Munich, Juventus and Inter Milan suffered losses, but PSG and Borussia Dortmund ensured they remained top of the table with important wins over Lyon and Schalke.

By The Numbers brings you the best stats from this cracking weekend of football:



Manchester City are now unbeaten in their last 22 away league matches with a record of 16-0-6 (W-L-D). Their last league loss away from home was their first match of last season against Tottenham.


Erling Haaland has scored 11 PL goals this season; the next-most by a City player is 2 (Julian Álvarez, Ilkay Gundogan and Bernardo Silva)

15y, 181d

Ethan Nwaneri became the youngest player in Premier League history (15, born March 21, 2007), beating Harvey Elliot who made his Fulham debut in 2019, aged 16 years, and 30 days. The Arsenal teen is also the youngest in English top-flight history, narrowly edging out Derek Forster who made his debut for Sunderland in 1964, aged 15 years and 184 days.


Son Heung-Min scored a 13 minute hat-trick for Tottenham against Leicester. It was the 16th fastest hat-trick in Premier League history and the fastest since Mohamed Salah scored a 12 minute hat-trick last October against Manchester United.


Harry Kane scored his 18th career PL goal against Leicester City, only Alan Shearer has scored more PL goals against a single opponent in PL history (20 vs Leeds).



Real Madrid lead LaLiga with 18 points (2 more than Barcelona) - they are the only team in Europe's top 5 leagues to win all of their league games this season. This is also the first time Madrid have started a LaLiga season with 6 straight wins since 1987-88.


Real Madrid have started the season with nine straight wins in all competitions for the first time since 1968-69, when they won a club-record 11 straight games to open the season (tied with 1961-62)


Fede Valverde has now scored in three consecutive games for the first time in his career. His total of 4 goals this season in all competitions, is also the most he's achieved in a single season.


Barcelona are unbeaten in 24 home LaLiga games vs Elche (17-0-7 W-L-D), which is club's most games against a single opponent without a loss. In fact, Elche haven't beaten Barca in their last 22 games - the last win coming on Dec. 22, 1974 in Elche.


Robert Lewandowski has scored 10+ club goals for the 12th straight season (all competitions). The last time he failed to do so was in his first season with Dortmund in 2010-11 (9)


Barcelona have only conceded 1 goal in La Liga this season. That is their best defensive start to a season since 2014, when Barcelona did not give up a goal in their first 8 league matches.



Nice defender Jean-Clair Todibo was sent off after only nine seconds, the fastest red card in Ligue 1 since at least 2006-07, since when this data was tracked.



Juventus are winless in their last 5 matches in all competitions, the club's worst run since the final 5 games of the 2018-19 season (W0-L2-D3)



This is Bayern's 27th winless run of 4 or more games, but only the second this century and first in over 20 years, since going 7 in a row without a win in November 2001 - January 2002.

17y, 301d

At 17 years, 301 days, Youssoufa Moukoko is the youngest scorer in the Revierderby in Bundesliga history.


Borussia Dortmund extended their winning streak against Schalke to 4 games (outscoring their rivals 12-0). The last time Dortmund had a longer such streak was 8 games: from 1964 to 1967.



Lionel Messi scored his 4th goal in Ligue 1 this season against Lyon, with this the eighth game so far. Last season Messi only managed one goal in the first 12 Ligue 1 games.


Cristiano Ronaldo was not in action this weekend as Manchester United's game against Leeds was postponed, but the Portuguese star did end his goal-drought with a goal in the UEFA Europa League against Sheriff Tiraspol.
