The records keep tumbling for runaway Premier League leader Manchester City, which made history once more in a 4-0 win over bottom club Swansea City. Pep Guardiola's side now has 15 consecutive wins in the top flight, surpassing the previous best mark set by Arsenal between February and August 2002.

Romelu Lukaku ended his top-flight goal drought as Manchester United ensured the 11-point gap at the summit got no bigger by beating Bournemouth 1-0.

Burnley downed Stoke City by the same margin, with Sean Dyche's men sitting proudly in the top six. Here, we look at the key Opta stats from the midweek action.

Sparkling Silva shines for slick city

Manchester City's 15 wins in its ongoing run is as many victories as Swansea has managed in 55 matches since the start of last season.

Guardiola is still shy of his best league winning streak, having chalked up 19 in succession between October 2013 and March 2014 with Bayern Munich. David Silva netted in each half and has now been involved in 13 goals in 17 Premier League games this season, with five goals and eight assists. Kevin De Bruyne fired in a free-kick in between the Spain international's brace and matches Silva's return over 14 top-flight games since the start of September.

Sergio Aguero rounded off City's scoring with a fine solo effort, putting him on 10 for the season domestically. The Argentina striker has now reached double fixtures in each of his seven campaigns at the Etihad Stadium.

Lukaku takes his pick against Cherries

Arsenal and Liverpool were held to goalless draws against West Ham and West Brom respectively but United avoided a similar fate as Lukaku netted after 25 minutes against Bournemouth, offering an antidote to the weekend Manchester derby woes at Old Trafford.

The former Everton man has scored six times in five appearances facing Eddie Howe's side, with five coming in home matches.

His boss Jose Mourinho has enjoyed a less fruitful record versus the Cherries, defeating them while in his own dugout for the first time at the third attempt.

Juan Mata laid on the winner and has made more assists (18) than any other United player in the top flight since his debut in January 2014.

Burnley breaks new ground

Dyche's Burnley claimed its third league win in four by beating Stoke 1-0 on Tuesday, and that result took it into the top four - for about 24 hours - for the first time (excluding the first two matchdays of the season) since March 1975.

At the same time, the result meant Stoke is suffering its worst ever Premier League campaign after 17 games, having claimed just 16 points.

But it was always going to find it tough at Turf Moor - only Manchester United's record of 10 clean sheets is better than the Clarets' eight.

Burnley left it late, with Ashley Barnes' goal coming right at the death. It has now won six points from goals in the final 10 minutes of matches, something only City (nine) has bettered.

Heading to victory

Chelsea came away from Huddersfield Town with a 3-1 triumph, meaning it has won at 50 different Premier League stadiums, with only Liverpool (53) victorious at more.

Chelsea took its headed goals tally to 10, which is two more than it managed last season and a Premier League high this term.

Willian was particularly effective again, scoring once and setting up the other two to take his goal involvements to six in his last four starts across all competitions (four goals, two assists).

There was also a glimpse of Chelsea's future in the match, as defender Ethan Ampadu became the club's second youngest Premier League player at 17 years and 89 days old after Jody Morris (17 years, 43 days).
