Liverpool close in on monumental home achievement as relegation beckons for Aston Villa #premierleague #LIVAVL | @RichJolly |

17 home wins down, two go to. Liverpool close in on the perfect home season after Mane and Jones see off Villa. On Liverpool 2-0 Aston Villa:

The only team to have finished a top-flight English season with a 100 percent home record were Sunderland in 1891-92. 78 of their 93 league goals were scored by players called John or Jimmy.

The NHS is exactly 41 years older than Charlie Austin.

Newcastle have scored twice as many league goals in June & July (10) as they scored between January and May (5).

Bukayo Saka and Alexandre Lacazette reignite Arsenal's European hopes Report from @RichJolly #WOLARS

Arsenal reshape the race for the Champions League places in perhaps the best result of Arteta's reign. On Wolves 0-2 Arsenal:

The rise of Bukayo Saka continues: first contract, first league goal. On Wolves 0-2 Arsenal:

Wolves become the last Premier League team to concede in June or July. Previous PL scorer against them was Serge Aurier on 1 March.

Cristiano Ronaldo is the first player to score 25+ league goals in a season in England, Spain and Italy.

Tottenham’s second season ends like the first – with Jose Mourinho blaming someone else By @RichJolly

Last season ended with Tottenham in the Champions League final. This one in effect ended at Bramall Lane. On Jose Mourinho and a season gone wrong:

Liverpool have lost league games 5-0, 4-0 and 3-0 more recently than they have lost 2-0.

Man City 4-0 Liverpool was the first Premier League game Joe Gomez has lost when he has started as a centre-back. Four previous defeats, all as a full-back.

Mourinho: "The man on the pitch is [now] the assistant referee and the today the man and lady with the flags, they are the assistant of the assistant referees."
