Five weird facts from the just concluded Premier League season

The season may have been concluded but five weird stats stood out from the 2020/21 premier league season and we’d like to walk you through them… Shall we?

 

1.       New all-time low for Carlo Ancelotti

When Manchester City rammed five past Everton on the final day, Aguero’s breaking of Wayne Rooney’s record for most goals for a single club by one player but the Citizens dragged Carlo Ancelotti’s ageless reigns as a manager in the thick mud.

The well-travelled Italian has never lost by such margin in his 1,167 games in charge as a manager and not just that, no manager that has ever won the UEFA champions league three times have ever suffered 5-0 defeat, Ancelotti must be feeling debit alerts each time those goals went in on Sunday… Poor old Carlo

2.       Senior Man Kelz did it every day of the week!

Never did it happen before that a premier league player found the net every day of the week but when Kelechi Iheanacho came off the bench to fire one in against Chelsea in Leicester’s 2-1 loss at Stamford Bridge, it was a record in the making.

Leicester may have missed out on top four, but this weird yet interesting record can rest with them as Iheanacho scored on every day of the week in the just-concluded season, he must be wondering why he started on the bench on a day Leicester had to win.

3.       Leicester unlucky or self-destruct?

To be honest, losing 4-2 at home on a day you had every reason to win was unbecoming and no one else is to blame than everyone involved at Leicester.

How did they go from 2-1 up to losing 4-2? And it might interest you that Leicester City spent more days (242) in the top four than any other team this season, even Manchester City were behind the trio of United, Liverpool and Leicester, it’s sad for Leicester really.

They will be proud of their achievements, FA Cup success and a top-five finish is fine but it could have been better.

4.       Owners patience like never before?

The 2020-21 season saw just four managerial changes during the season, with Jose Mourinho (Tottenham), Chris Wilder (Sheffield United), Frank Lampard (Chelsea) and Slaven Bilic (West Brom) the only managers to lose their jobs.

Sam Allardyce (West Brom), Roy Hodgson (Crystal Palace) and Nuno Espirito Santos (Wolves) all left their positions after the completion of the campaign so theirs don’t count.

This is the lowest number of managerial changes witnessed during the same Premier League campaign since 2005-06 (three).

5.       Kids can play!

For all the challenges Arsenal have faced in the just-concluded season, do you know they have never lost a game in which a teenager has scored?

Sounds strange but it’s true with their last away game of the season at Selhurst saw them beat Crystal Palace 3-1 and Gabriel Martinelli, 19 years old scored the second goal, stretching the run to 60 games, in fact, they have won 50 of those and drew 10.
