Notable statistics from Saturday’s fixture

OFFICIAL: Norwich City have sacked Daniel Farke.

His last game in charge was today’s 2-1 win over Brentford, the Canaries’ first Premier League win of the season.
? Man City have won more away PL matches at Old Trafford than any other team
Matej Vydra’s strike at Stamford Bridge was the first goal Chelsea have conceded from open play in the PL this season
? Conor Gallagher has had a direct hand in more PL goals than any of his Crystal Palace team-mates this season (4 goals, 2 assists)
? Norwich City have ended a run of 20 PL matches without a win (D2 L18) after beating Brentford
1 – Eric Bailly is the first Manchester United player to score an own goal in the Manchester derby in the Premier League. Oops.
3 – All three of Bernardo Silva’s goals against Manchester United for Manchester City have come at Old Trafford, scoring in three of his last four appearances there – he has only netted more goals against Burnley (four) in his time at Man City.
7 – Only Mohamed Salah (16), Michail Antonio (9) and Jamie Vardy (8) have been directly involved in more Premier League goals this season than Chelsea’s Reece James (7 – 4 goals, 3 assists).
0 – Newcastle – the only Premier League side without a victory – are on their longest ever winless run from the beginning of a league campaign. Indeed, each of the last four Premier League sides to endure a similar start to a top-flight season have gone on to be relegated.
