  • United have also never beaten Bournemouth 8-0, their biggest win against the Cherries in an FA Cup tie in 1949. That match finished 6-0 with Jack Rowley and Ronnie Burke both knocking in braces for the Red Devils
  • In his last four years with PSG, Zlatan Ibrahimovic bagged 113 league goals at a staggering average of a goal every 91 minutes

  • No team has ever beaten Arsenal 7-0 in the league, although Chelsea came very close in March 2014 when they hammered the Gunners 6-0 at Stamford Bridge, with Oscar bagging a brace
