Jeremy Doku completed more dribbles than any Premier League player since September 2021 during Saturday's draw with Liverpool.

The flying winger was our Man of the Match and the stats make it obvious as to why.

Our Belgian beat Trent Alexander-Arnold at will throughout the game, completing an incredible 11 dribbles in total.

That’s the most in a single Premier League since Adama Traore’s 11 for Wolves early in the 2021/22 campaign.

It’s also the most on record (since 2006-07) a player has completed in a Premier League game against Liverpool.

Across the whole Premier League campaign so far, he has averaged six dribbles per 90 minutes on the pitch. That’s not far off double the next best, who is Crystal Palace’s Eberechi Eze with 3.6.

His 19 touches in the opposition box was also by far the most of any player on either side in this particular match, with Erling Haaland‘s eight the next most.

The only frustration for Doku will be that he didn’t claim a goal or assist to seal all three points for the Blues.

However, it was another exhilarating display from the 21-year-old who has started excellently in Manchester.

Haaland’s on fire

Erling Haaland reached 50 Premier League goals 17 matches sooner than any player in the competition’s history.

Andrew Cole previously held the record, taking 65 matches to get to his half century.

Those goals have come from 174 shots over the course of his 48 games in the division, meaning he scores every 3.48 shots.

10 of his strikes have been scored from the penalty spot having missed just once from 12 yards.

The No.9 has had a total of 1,104 touches in the Premier League in his time in England, which shows how efficient he is.

For example, Rodrigo‘s total touches over the same period is 4,592.

End of a special run

This was the first time we have failed to win at the Etihad Stadium in 2023.

Across all competitions, that took our total streak to an incredible 23 matches.

In terms of English sides, the record can be bettered only by the Sunderland team of 1892.

That run has comprised of 45 goals in 15 Premier League games, 20 goals in five Champions League fixtures and 11 goals in three FA Cup ties.

The last time we didn’t win at home was a draw with Everton on New Year’s Eve 2022 and it’s now been over a year since our last defeat at the Etihad - the 2-1 loss to Brentford in the final game before last winter’s World Cup.

City’s Premier League stats so far this season

Erling Haaland‘s 14 Premier League goals this season has him four ahead of Mo Salah in the race for the Golden Boot. Jarrod Bowen and Son Heung-Min are two further back on eight each.

Jeremy Doku is now one of six players on five assists, two behind leader Pedro Neto. Julian Alvarez is part of the pack on four, having been playing behind Haaland for much of the campaign so far.

Despite missing two matches, Rodrigo has still completed the second most passes in the division - 1,100. Only Brighton’s Lewis Dunk (1,243) has completed more. Ruben Dias (907) and Kyle Walker (865) are also in the top 10.

Ederson is one of several goalkeepers on four clean sheets, with Crystal Palace’s Sam Johnstone and Newcastle’s Nick Pope the only two with five.

Our 33 goals is the most in the league, narrowly ahead of Newcastle with 31.
