Week 12 of the English Premier League could be easily separated into two categories: the Merseyside derby and everything else.
The latest edition of the battle between Everton and Liverpool handed us plenty of excitement, and a treasure trove of standout stats.
As for the other eight matches played this weekend, they gave us some fun stats too, but they were not under the spotlight like the Merseyside derby.
Derby Result First in 83 Years
For the first time since 1930, the Reds and Toffees ended their derby match in a 3-3 draw:

Given how many times these two sides have lined up against each other over the years, it is sort of shocking that they have not produced a result like they did on Saturday in the last 83 years.
Leighton Baines Loses Streak
Overshadowed by all of the scoring at Goodison Park was the departure of Leighton Baines from the pitch in the 50th minute due to injury.
By exiting the field early in favor of Gerard Deulofeu, the English left-back snapped his streak of 170 matches where he has played the entire 90 minutes:
170 - Leighton Baines had played the full 90 minutes in each of his last 170 Premier League games before being subbed off today. Stamina.— OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) November 23, 2013
As for his injury status, Baines suffered a toe injury after Liverpool midfielder Jordan Henderson fell on it:

The Toffees will hope to have their star defender back in the lineup against Stoke on Saturday.
Frank Lampard Breaks a Streak of His Own
While we're on the topic of streak breaking, let's talk about the one broken by Chelsea's Frank Lampard in the 3-0 win over West Ham United.
Heading into the match at Upton Park, Lampard had not scored in 10 matches.
10 - Frank Lampard has ended a run of 10 league appearances without a goal by converting that penalty. Wait.— OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) November 23, 2013
Luckily for the England international and his club, he broke out of his slump in style with a double against the Hammers.
Lampard struck first on a penalty in the 21st minute before he sealed the win with an 82nd minute strike.
The Favorite Color of English Football is Red
There were two red cards shown in the EPL on Saturday to Crystal Palace's Yannick Bolasie and Sunderland's Wes Brown.
The top flight duo joined 11 other players who took the walk of shame down the tunnel to set a record number of sending offs in the first four tiers of English football on Saturday.
13 - There have been 13 red cards shown across England's top four tiers today; more than any other day so far this season. Mist.— OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) November 23, 2013
In all honesty, there should have been at least one more red card shown, but Everton's Kevin Mirallas was spared by referee Phil Dowd despite a studs-up horror tackle on Luis Suarez.
Glenn Whelan is Perfect
When someone mentions the name of Stoke City midfielder Glenn Whelan in casual conversation, the word perfect is far from the first word used to describe him.
However, that was the best adjective available to chronicle the Republic of Ireland international's day.
Whelan attempted 63 passes in the Potters' 2-0 win over Sunderland and he found a teammate with every single pass, according to Opta:
100% - Glenn Whelan found a teammate with all 63 passes he attempted against Sunderland today. Cultured.— OptaJoe (@OptaJoe) November 23, 2013
Artur Boruc's Blunder Costs Saints
Southampton keeper Artur Boruc found himself in the headlines for all the wrong reasons on Saturday as he handed Olivier Giroud the first Arsenal goal.
The second goal the Polish man between the pipes conceded was on a penalty, which was a more conventional way to lose.
Boruc is no stranger to goalkeeping oddities as he also gave up a goal to a fellow keeper in Stoke's Asmir Begovic.
That means that two of the seven goals that Southampton have let in this season have been on stupid errors by Boruc.
Jesus Navas Strikes Fast
If you missed the first 14 seconds of Manchester City's 6-0 thumping of Tottenham, you missed a goal from Jesus Navas.
Navas' goal was only the seventh-fastest goal in league history, a statistic that is quite shocking if you asked this soccer scribe.

Maybe next time Navas can be a little quicker so he can find himself near the top of that chart.
