Football weekend in numbers

Manchester, naughty Blades, and Arsenal’s failings

109 – Only 1 of the last 109 FA Cup games this season has finished 0-0, Bolton v Wigan

6 – After goals in the Rome derby, Francesco Totti is now the sixth top scorer in Serie A history

8 – Thanks to their ‘direct’ style, Robert Huth is now Stoke City’s top goalscorer in all competitions this season

14 – Hull City are now unbeaten in fourteen away games, a club record

57 – A favourite stat of mine. Peterborough have now scored 57 home goals, and there have been 91 goals in the 19 games at London Road. That’s over five goals a game.

2 – Sheffield United had two players sent off in a Championship game for the second time this season

85 – We now have an all-Manchester FA Cup semi-final for the first time in 85 years

16 – Bari have only scored 16 goals this season in Serie A. Four players in that league have more goals than them

150 – Jose Mourinho has now reached 150 home league games without defeat

13 – Days in which Arsenal have gone out of three competitions

21 – Difference in percentage of possession that Arsenal had over their last two games. It matters not

18 – Despite being 16 points behind leaders Borussia Dortmund, Bayern Munich have scored three or more goals in a game on 18 occasions this season
