Football Amazing Facts - 105

Football is the world’s most popular game which combines strength, speed, and skills. Even if you are a hardcore fan of Football, there are certainly some things you don’t know about this amazing sport.
1. Seven of Michy Batshuayi's eight English Premier League goals for Chelsea on Sunday came as a substitute; indeed, only Olivier Giroud (13) has scored more such goals since in the competition since August 2016 than the Belgian.

2. Chelsea have become just the third English Premier League side to score 3+ first half goals in consecutive away games in the competition after Manchester United in 1993/94 and Tottenham Hotspur in 2018/19.

3. Since returning to the English Premier League in August 2016, Marcos Alonso has been directly involved in 26 goals in 100 games in the competition (15 goals & 11 assists), the most of any defender since then.

4. Tottenham have conceded 10 goals in their last two games in all competitions; the first time they have done so across two matches since December 1997 (1-6 loss to Chelsea, 0-4 loss to Coventry).

5. Aaron Connolly was the 100th player from the Republic of Ireland to score an English Premier League goal, making them only the fourth nation to have 100+ different goalscorers in the English competition (alongside England, France and Scotland).
