Despite a diminished schedule because of the FA Cup quarterfinals, Week 29 of the English Premier League produced drama and the usual intriguing post-match talking points.
While most people will focus on the thrashing by Chelsea at Stamford Bridge over Spurs, the biggest statistical headline came from The Hawthorns.
In Manchester United's 3-0 win over West Brom in the early kickoff, Wayne Rooney put himself into a class of his own.
Continue reading below for Rooney's magnificent mark and a few other standout stats from Saturday's play.
Wayne in His Own World
Rooney scored in the 65th minute of the three-goal victory by the Red Devils and assisted on Danny Welbeck's 82nd-minute goal.
With the assist, Rooney became the first player in Premier League history to record over 10 goals and 10 assists in five separate seasons:

Walters Becomes Lucky No. 13
Jonathan Walters had a very interesting five-minute span at Carrow Road in the second half of Stoke's 1-1 draw with Norwich.
