Football Amazing Facts - 140

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.  Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has scored 10 goals in 11 English Premier League games against newly-promoted sides.

2.  And since his EPL debut in February 2018, he has scored 27 goals in games played on a Sunday; more than any other player has scored on a day of the week in this time.

3.  Arsenal Women are the first side in Barclays FA Women's Super League history to reach double figures in a single match. Their 11-1 win over Bristol City on Sunday is now the biggest margin of victory in the competition, overtaking Liverpool's 9-0 win against Doncaster Rovers Belles in Aug 2013. 

4. Watford on Sunday sacked two permanent managers during the 2019-20 season (Gracia, Sanchez Flores), making this the earliest a side has seen two permanent managers leave after the start of a English Premier League season, overtaking Southampton in 2004-05 (Dec 8th).

5. Aged 33 years and 312 days, West Ham's David Martin was the second oldest goalkeeper to keep a clean sheet on his EPL debut, behind only Bernard Lama (34y 329d), who also did so for West Ham in March 1998.
