Here are the best of Saturday's Premier League stats...

  • Liverpool have 26 points from their opening league games this season (W8 D2 L0), which matches their best start to a Premier League season in 2008-09.
  • Mohamed Salah has now scored 33 goals in 35 matches at Anfield for Liverpool, while the Reds have won all 19 of the home games in which Sadio Mane has netted for them.
  • Cardiff scored with their only shot on target - and Callum Paterson's goal was also one of only two touches the Bluebirds had in the Reds' box.
  • Wolves have lost back-to-back league games for the first time under manager Nuno Espirito Santo.
  • Murray's 48th-minute winner for Brighton was the Seagulls' only shot on target against Wolves.
  • Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson has been directly involved in 10 goals in his past 11 appearances in the Premier League (six goals and four assists).

  • The past six sides who failed to win any of their first 10 Premier League games went on to be relegated - Norwich City in 2004-05, Watford in 2006-07, QPR in 2012-13, Reading in 2012-13, Burnley in 2014-15 and Sunderland in 2016-17.
