Stoke’s Charlie Adam saw his penalty saved by Brighton’s Mathew Ryan – and was then denied by a tackle from Lewis Dunk when trying to knock in the rebound

Stoke fluffed their lines from the penalty spot yet again, Harry Kane was on target against the Gunners once more, West Ham are on a roll at London Stadium at last and Swansea have become a tough nut to crack on home turf.

It’s been another gripping Saturday in the Premier League, and we’ve cherry-picked some of the best stats for you to mull over…

  • Stoke have missed their last three penalties in the Premier League, with each taken by a different player – Charlie Adam, Saido Berahino and Marko Arnautovic.
  • Xherdan Shaqiri has had a hand in each of Stoke’s last three Premier League goals, scoring twice and assisting once.
  • Since his debut in January 2012, Everton’s Gylfi Sigurdsson has scored 17 goals from outside the box, more than any other current Premier League player.
  • Oumar Niasse has both scored and assisted in the same Premier League game for the first time in his career.

  • West Ham have gone five games without defeat at London Stadium in all competitions for the first time (W3 D2).
  • Javier Hernandez has scored in three of his past four Premier League games for West Ham (three goals total), as many games as he had scored in from his opening 17 this season (four goals total).
