Opta Stats

  • Fulham have lost each of their last nine league games, the second longest such run in their history, surpassed only by 11 straight defeats in 1961-62.
  • This season’s relegation of Huddersfield and Fulham makes April 2nd the earliest date by which two clubs have been relegated in a single Premier League season.
  • This is just the second occasion in which two clubs have been relegated from the Premier League with five or more games remaining, after 1994-95 (Ipswich and Leicester).
  • Fulham are now winless in their last 19 away games in the Premier League (D2 L17) since beating Aston Villa in April 2014; this is the longest run in the division since Hull City went 26 away games without victory between March 2009 and August 2013.
  • Ryan Babel has been directly involved in five league goals (three goals and two assists) for Fulham since making his debut in January, more than double that of any teammate.
  • Fulham winger Ryan Sessegnon has assisted six Premier League goals; only four players have assisted more goals in the competition before turning 19: Francis Jeffers, Michael Owen (both 11), Cesc Fabregas (10) and Wayne Rooney (8).

Opta Stats

  • United have lost consecutive away games against Wolves in all competitions for the first time since August 1980.
  • Following Young’s dismissal, Dean has now handed out 100 red cards in the Premier League, the most by a referee in the competition’s history. Both of Young’s red cards in the competition have been shown by Dean (also Jan 2009 for Aston Villa vs Sunderland).
  • United have had more different goal scorers (exc. own-goals) than any other Premier League team this season (16).
  • Jiménez has been directly involved in 19 Premier League goals this season (12 goals, 7 assists) – five more than any Wolves player has registered in a single season in the competition.
