* samlak 1. Two players have scored Premier League penalties with both feet: Bobby Zamora and Obafemi Martins.
Obafemi Martins: along with Zamora, the only player to REALLY prove his two-footedness
2. Ryan Giggshas been substituted more times than any other player (134).
OK, it's probably because he played for so long.
3. Mario Balotelli’s only assist in the Premier League was for Sergio Aguero’s title-winning goal vs QPR.
Forget the title-winning stuff: the truly remarkable fact about this goal was Mad Mario setting it up
4. Wayne Rooney,Gareth Bale and Kevin Davies are the only players to score, assist and score an own goal in a single Premier League game.
Rooney scores an OG against Stoke in 2012
5. Bale is the one of the three above to also get a yellow card in the same game.
"But your card clashes with my boots!"
6. Man United have never lost a Premier League game at Old Trafford in which they have been ahead at half-time.
A fact which exists largely thanks to one man
7. Alan Shearer has missed the most Premier League penalties (11). In fairness, he's also scored the most (56).

TWO arms in the air? Blimey, he must have been happy
8. Last season was the first time West Ham recorded a positive goal difference in a top-flight season since 1985/86.
Arfa Griffiths
Last season: a good time to blow some bubbles
9. Former England goalkeeper Paul Robinson has scored, assisted and won a penalty in the Premier League. He also has more Premier League assists than any other keeper (five).
Maybe Paul Robinson should just have played up front?
10. Darius Vassell scored in 46 different Premier League games - and didn't lose any of them (still a record).
Remember the days when Man City strikers were Darius Vassell?
11. Only three players born after the Premier League began (August 1992) have scored Premier League hat-tricks: Raheem Sterling, Harry Kane and Romelu Lukaku.

13. David (x14) & James (x11) were the most common first names in the Premier League in 2010/11 - yet it was the first season in which David James did not appear.
Phil Cole
Make sense?
14. Newcastle United won 34 points from losing positions in 2001/02; the most by a team in a single Premier League season. It was also the same number of points that they wonin totalwhen relegated seven years later.
Newcastle in 2002: a LOT better than Newcastle in 2016
15. In 2014/15, George Boyd became the fourth player to play for two relegated teams in the same Premier League campaign (others were Mark Robins in 94/95, Steve Kabba in 06/07 and David Nugent in 09/10).

"And then Claudio come!"
17. Wes Morgan (2015/16), John Terry (2014/15) and Gary Pallister (1992/93) are the only outfield players to play every minute of the season for a Premier League title-winning side.
How times change…

Tony Marshall
Crouchie being Crouchie
19. Nuri Sahin (formerly at Liverpool) has played the most Premier League games of any player to be substituted off in all of their PL appearances (7).
Nuri Sahin: another belting Brendan Rodgers buy
20. Richard Wright has played a combined 12 Premier League games for Arsenal (12) and Man City (0)… and has two title medals.
Alex Livesey
Richard Wright: two-time Premier League champion
21. Iago Aspas took more corners (often badly) than he had shots in the Premier League.
Iago Aspas: king of corner-taking
22. In 1997/98, Andy Roberts played 37 games in the Premier League and four of them came against Arsenal (two for Palace, two for Wimbledon).

Poor Terry…
