Premier League: 13 crazy stats from the 2019/20 season so far

James Maddison only has three assists this season, interesting...

The return of the Premier League really is tantalisingly close now.

After three months without live action from the world's most-watched sporting the league, the green light has been given for 'Project Restart'.

The games will be coming thick and fast over the next six or so weeks in what is a marathon of Premier League football.

To celebrate the return of the English top-flight on Wednesday, we've decided to compile some of the craziest stats from the 2019/20 season so far, just to whet your whistle some more.

Some of them are hard to believe even after a second read!

Aaron Wan-Bissaka (27) has been dribbled past more times than Granit Xhaka (24)

Yeah we're struggling to get our heads around this one!

Sadio Mane has missed 15 big chances, the same number as Sheffield United's David McGoldrick

Madness right? Mane does have 14 goals to his name as well, though...

No team has scored more goals after the 90th minute than Aston Villa (5)

Two of those goals have resulted in wins, against Watford and Brighton.

Aston Villa's Jack Grealish

James Maddison only has 3 Premier League assists to his name

The same number as Mason Holgate, Erik Pieters and Christian Atsu. Proof that stats aren't always the best go-to when assessing a player!

Dominic Solanke has failed to score a single goal in his 24 Premier League appearances

He's only had five shots on target this season as well...

No team has scored more goals from corners than Everton (9)

If only they knew how to defend them, eh?

Richarlison's goal vs Arsenal

Liverpool have made 19 errors that have directly led to shots on goal

Only Aston Villa and Tottenham have worse records than the Reds in this department.

Sheffield United have only made 31 changes to their XI throughout the season

No wonder the Blades are in contention to qualify for the Champions League!

Mesut Ozil has 1 assist in 1,449 minutes of Premier League action

The German has been well and truly been stripped of his 'Assist King' title.

Arsenal's Mesut Ozil

No player has made more passes per game on average that Virgil van Dijk (85.4)

Liverpool's defensive colossus casually dictating games at the back, what a player.

Bournemouth 0-1 Burnley saw the fewest shots (5) ever in a Premier League since the data started being collected in 2003/04

Jay Rodriguez's injury-time goal was the only shot on target during the entire game!

Roberto Firmino still hasn't scored a single goal at Anfield

How long before the Brazilian ends his Anfield drought?

Firmino in action for Liverpool

Burnley (11), Southampton, Everton and Crystal Palace (10) have more wins than Arsenal (9)

In case you were wondering the size of Mikel Arteta's task as manager of the Gunners...

So there you have it, the weird and wonderful side of the 2019/20 Premier League seasons so far.

The likes of Solanke, Maddison, Ozil and Firmino will be desperate to banish their unfortunate stats away for good when the Premier League restarts next week.

As for that Bournemouth vs Burnley game, we hope those highlights have been permanently erased from the archives for the greater good.
