Premier League Week 16 Standout Stats: Manchester City, Suarez Score at Will

The English Premier League gave us plenty of goals to enjoy this weekend, especially in the game played at the Etihad Stadium.

Manchester City and Arsenal combined for nine goals in the first game of Week 16 on Saturday, and some of the other clubs in the league followed suit

Liverpool scored five against Spurs, Everton struck four times against Fulham and Manchester United netted three times at Aston Villa on Sunday. 

However, not all of the clubs in the league scored this weekend, as two matches ended in goalless draws. 

Here is a look at some of the standout stats from Week 16 in the EPL. 

 

Manchester City Keeps Perfect Home Record

Manchester City continued their spectacular home form with a thumping of league leaders Arsenal. 

The Citizens have won eight matches on the blue half of Manchester this season, and in the process they have scored 35 goals: 

By scoring the 35 goals in eight games, City became the first team since Tottenham during the 1962-63 season to score that many goals at home in the same span: 

 

Arsenal's Historic Blowout Loss

Arsenal have played in the EPL since its inception, and Saturday marked just the third time in their league history in which they conceded more than five goals. 

The Gunners gave up six and eight goals respectively in two games against City's main rival, Manchester United, at Old Trafford

 

Walcott's Rare Away Showing

Lost in the defensive debacle of the Gunners was the double scored by new father-to-be Theo Walcott.

Walcott scored a brace on the road for the first time since 2008, when he scored two against Birmingham: 

 

Good, Old Boring Stoke Never Disappoint

Stoke City have had a negative reputation of being a boring side ever since they entered the EPL in 2008. 

Saturday's goalless draw with Hull City did not break the trend of the dull, drab Stoke City games. 

The draw was the 24th of its kind for the Potters since being promoted, which is an EPL record: 

 

West Ham Produce a Snoozer, Too

West Ham are becoming the new Stoke this season, as they have played a part in five goalless draws, including their Saturday tie with Sunderland.

The five scoreless showings by the Hammers are more than have been recorded by all 18 Bundesliga teams in the 2013-14 campaign: 

 

Manchester United Equal City in One Way

After their 3-0 over Aston Villa on Sunday, Manchester United stayed within seven points of rival Manchester City. 

However, the two sides are equal on one statistic: number of goalscorers in the 2013-14 season.

Thanks to Tom Cleverley's second-half strike, the Red Devils now have eight players who have scored in David Moyes' first campaign, which is the same number of goalscorers the Citizens have: 

 

Suarez Outscores Tottenham

Luis Suarez has scored whenever he wants this season and he added to his tally of goals on Sunday with a double in the Reds' 5-0 win over Tottenham.

By scoring his 16th and 17th goals of the season, Suarez inched ahead of the entire Spurs team in the goal department:
