As a consequence of Arsenal’s late equaliser, Manchester United have now drawn three league games in a row at Old Trafford for the first time since April 1992.

With Yaya Toure making a two-goal return to the Manchester City ranks, Crystal Palace are now the only Premier League team yet to keep a clean sheet in this season.

Having been denied a win at Everton, Swansea City have now equaled their worst-ever 12-game start to a league season. They also won one and drew three of their first 12 games in 1983-84 in League Division Two (now League Championship).

Two of Liverpool’s last five Premier League games have now ended in goalless draws after none in the previous 36 league games.
