1 – the number of misplaced passes by John Stones as the young Everton FC defender turned in a near-faultless display. His other 39 passes found their target and he made six clearances.

6 – Premier League wins in a row for the Blues, matching the feat they achieved from October to November in 2002.

13 – Romelu Lukaku’s goal tally for the season. More than Samuel Eto’o and Fernando Torres combined (12) and the most by an Everton player in the Premier League since Yakubu (15) in 2007-08.
