Go Figure - 3rd December 2002

Apart from a back-pass to Dudek, a penalty kick is the nearest thing to a given as far as goal-scoring is concerned. However, since we started compiling records of missed penalties in November, 2000, almost a qurter (35/152) have been missed

Brad Freidel picked up his second of the season, but has allowed three during his Blackburn career and so does not make the table showing the leading stoppers over the past two seasons

Barthez has managed his 100% record with some effective gamesmanship: he did allow one passed him earlier on in his career at Manchester United. Over this time period the least effective goalkeepers have been Mark Schwarzer (1 save to nine allowed) and Neil Sullivan (1/8): Sullivan, with 26, has the unenviable record of conceding the most penalties in the Premiership. Over the past two years, Ian Walker, Paul Jones, Kasey Keller and Peter Enckleman have each allowed five in without stopping one

Of course for every hero there is a goat. Four players have managed to miss at least two penalties in the past twenty-four months, although - of these - only Fowler has yet to notch at least one. Twelve other players have missed one penalty without scoring one

Even Alan Shearer, the most prolific penalty scorer of all time, with 42, is not immune from failure. van Nistelrooy and di Canio match his seven succesful penalties over this time-period, both with a 100% success rate

Go Figure    30 Nov - 2 Dec
Arsenal 3–1 Aston Villa
Thierry Henry joins the logjam of players with nine goals and also leads the league with 12 assists. He is also the all-time Premiership points to game ratio leader at 1.08, with 67 goals and 56 assists in only 114 appearances
Birmingham City 1–1 Tottenham Hotspur
Birmingham top the league with 34 bookings, and already have three players with six or more cautions
Blackburn Rovers 2–1 Fulham
Blackburn have now been beneficiaries of three of the eight own-goals conceded in the premiership this season and win courtesy of another penalty save More...
Chelsea 3–0 Sunderland
At 298 minutes, Sunderland are on the verge of their second five-hour shut-out this season. Manchester United (305 mins) endured their worst Premiership spell ever earlier in the year
Leeds United 1–2 Charlton Athletic
Leeds become only the fifth team to suffer a sequence of five or more losses at home during a Premiership season. The 1993/4 Spurs and 95/6 Boro sides each avoided relegation
Liverpool 1–2 Manchester United
United deny Liverpool the opportunity of inflicting the double over them for the third consecutive season as Forlan picks up his seventh point in six games after recording but a single assist in his first 23 appearances
Manchester City 2–0 Bolton Wanderers
Howey's goal means that four of City's six goal-scorers have scored a header this season. Only Arsenal, with thirteen different scorers, can match this
Newcastle United 2–1 Everton
Everrton's run of 1-0 victories ends at five, but they do extend to eleven their league-leading number of games decided by the odd-goal
West Bromwich Albion 1–0 Middlesbrough
Boro rack up a league-leading fourth consecutive away loss. They have recorded such a run in seven of their eight seasons, only ever-present Southanpton having a worse record
West Ham United 0–1 Southampton
With no more home fixtures until 21st December, the Hammers are going to take longer than even the 1993/4 Swindon squad. However, the 1997/8 Palace side did not record a home victory until 18th April. Both sides were relegated
