Bournemouth Are Now The Holders Of The Most Unwanted Stat Of The Season

Bournemouth Are Now The Holders Of The Most Unwanted Stat Of The Season

It would be a massive understatement to say that Bournemouth didn't have the most productive of afternoon's in their defeat to Premier League champions Manchester City on Saturday.

Eddie Howe's side only conceded a single goal at Dean Court, with Riyad Mahrez netting in the 55th minute, but a number of incredible stats emerged after the game.

Bournemouth became the first home team not to have a single shot in a Premier League game since records began.

That's right. They didn't have a shot on or off target. Incredible.

Bournemouth recorded just 20% of possession against Pep Guardiola's side, according to stats, while City dominated for large parts, getting off 23 shots in total.

The fact that Howe's side didn't even take a corner in the game says it all.

Riyad Mahrez's goal in the second half means that City go two points ahead of Liverpool in the Premier League title race, with Jurgen Klopp's side coming up against Everton in the Merseyside Derby tomorrow.

Who will win the league?
