During the 2020/2021 premier league season, Manchester City wrestled Liverpool to take away the title, although in an unspectacular fashion. However, unlike in the 2019/2020 season when Liverpool took their first league and matched well breaking various records, last season ended quietly with only a few notable moments. Here are the unforgettable moments that EPL fans witnessed as they continued wagering on the action at Betway online sports betting website throughout the campaign.
Perfect Final-Day Record
Pep Guardiola ended the EPL as the manager with the outright best record in the final Matchweek, recording five wins in five games. Guardiola was on the same level with Chis Coleman, who recorded four wins.
Biggest Winning Margin
Manchester United’s 9-0 victory over Southampton last February was the premier league’s highest winning margin in history. Such other score lines included Manchester United’s 1995 record when they beat Ipswich and Southampton’s victory over Leicester City in 2019.
Fewest Away Defeats
Manchester United finished the 2020/2021 EPL season without being beaten away from home. That was the third time that a team achieved such a feat, matching Arsenal's record in the 2001/2002 and 2003/2004 seasons.
Most Clean Sheets
Thomas Tuchel became the first EPL head coach to have his team keep a clean sheet in all their first five home matches.
Most scores by Different players in a Match
When betting in betway on an EPL game, you can even bet on the number of scorers in a match, but be ready for a ride. That’s why it surprised many when Manchester United’s match against Southampton recorded seven different goal scorers. It was difficult to predict they will break Chelsea’s 2012 record when they beat Aston Villa 8-0.
Most Players Assisting
Liverpool scored seven goals at Crystal Palace last December, which were assisted by different players. These players included Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane, Andrew Robertson, Mohamed Salah, Alexander-Arnold, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, and Joel Matip. That was the first time in the EPL that such a number of players assisted goals for a team in a match.
Least Goals in a Season
Sheffield United only managed to score 20 goals last season in their premier league campaign. That was the least joint total in the premier league history after Derby County’s record in the 2007/2008 season.
Fewest Home Goals
Fulham only managed to score nine goals at home (Craven Cottage) all season, maintaining the record for the least number of goals scored at home.
Scoring on every day
Kelechi Iheanacho became the first Premier League player in history to record a score in all seven weekdays in a single season.
Youngest Consecutive Goalscorer
Joe Willock goes down in history as Newcastle United’s second player to score in seven straight premier league appearances after Alan Shearer’s 1996 record. Willock is also the youngest of the 13 players who have achieved such a feat in Premier League history at the age of 21 years and 276 days.
Harry Kane became the third premier league player to finish on top for assists and goals in a single season, winning the Playmaker and Golden Boot awards. The other two players to previously achieve the feat was Andrew Cole in the 1993/1994 season and Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink in the 1998/1999 season.
Most Assists in a Game
Kane was the sixth player to record four assists in an EPL match, passing to Son Heung-min for each of the four goals he scored at Southampton on September 20th.
When Ryan Mason took charge of Tottenham against Southampton at 29 years and 312 days, he became the youngest coach in EPL history.
