We round up the best stats and facts from Monday's Premier League action, with the help of Opta...

Indeed, Middlesbrough's 14-game winless run against Leicester is their longest current winless streak against any team.

Indeed, the Foxes are winless in their last 12 Premier League away games, drawing five and losing seven.

Wes Morgan has played each of Leicester's last 81 Premier League games, the longest current run by a player in the top-flight.

This is the third time Leicester have failed to score in an away Premier League game since the start of 2016.

Courtesy of Brunt's goal, the Baggies became the first side to hit double figures for headed goals in the Premier League this season (10, rising to 11 via McAuley goal).

This is only the second time two Northern Irish players have scored for a team in a Premier League game (also Brunt & Jonny Evans for West Brom v Watford in December 2016).
West Ham 0-2 Man Utd

Manchester United are now 13 games unbeaten in all competitions; their longest run since March 2013 under Sir Alex Ferguson (18 games).
