This week, Martin Tylers stats and facts column looks at which players have scored the most in defeats, as well as worrying home runs. Nene Jersey ... How to send your questions to Martin:Tweet @SkyFootball using the hashtag #TylersTeasers. Martins Starting StatI was at the Manchester derby on Sunday, where Manchester City scored first and lost. That hasn’t happened in the last 43 games where they’ve scored first, since a 3-2 defeat at Aston Villa in September 2013. They have won 37 and drawn six of those matches.City still haven’t won a Premier League game away in which they were losing at half time for 20 years since a 3-2 win at Blackburn in a Monday Night Football game. They were 2-1 down at half time in that game and won.We witnessed the first Manchester derby goals to be scored by Ashley Young, Marouane Fellaini and Juan Mata – but not Chris Smalling, who scored in the 3-2 Community Shield win at Wembley.This was only the second of 36 Premier League meetings to be won by the team conceding first. The last time that happened was when Manchester United came from 2-0 down (two goals scored by our expert Niall Quinn) to win 3-2 at Maine Road in November 1993.City have now lost four consecutive away games in the Premier League.for the first time in the same season since 2006 – following defeats to Liverpool, Burnley and Crystal Palace.Sergio Aguero scored twice to reach 100 goals in 158 games for Manchester City and is the fastest Man City player to reach that landmark by some distance, beating the record of Tommy Browell, who scored on his 183rd appearance in February 1927.Aguero has scored 8 goals in 8 derbies, but Wayne Rooney is still out in front with 11 derby goals in all competitions. Joe Hayes and Francis Lee are the all-time City record-holders with 10 goals each. If Aguero stays at the club then he has a great chance of catching them – and Rooney.Aguero had gone six games without a goal, equalling his worst run at City but at least he didn’t extend that run. He always does something when I’m commentating (and when I’m not…)On the run Arsenal: won their eighth in a row against Burnley Arsenal have won eight in a row, but is that unusual in the Premier League? What is the longest winning run a team has been on without winning the title? (Phil, Oxford)MARTIN SAYS: Arsenal are the first team to register eight wins in succession in the Premier League this season, so it isnt easy to achieve!In 2010/2011, Chelsea won just five games in a row on two separate runs and that was the longest winning streak of anyone in the top flight that season. Thats the Premier League season with the shortest longest winning run - if you know what I mean!Arsenal hold the record for the most consecutive wins in Premier League history when they won 14 in a row between February and August 2002.As for the longest runs by teams who didn’t win the title, that (perhaps unwanted) accolade goes to Liverpool, who stormed to 11 victories in a row last season on their way to finishing second behind Manchester City.Perhaps more incredible is Liverpool’s season in 2005/06, when they recorded two separate runs of 10 and nine wins in a row, yet Chelsea stormed to the title and Liverpool finished third. Manchester United, who came second, also recorded nine straight wins in that remarkable season.Chelsea themselves are the only other team to win more games in a row than Arsenal have and not win the title, as they registered a perfect nine from nine in 2006/07, finishing six points behind champions Manchester United.It’s worth mentioning that Manchester United are on six wins in a row – but their next game is away to Chelsea, live on Sky Sports’ Saturday Night Football at 4.45pm.

Pointless strikes Sergio Aguero: scored twice in defeat Sergio Aguero scored twice in defeat yesterday – who’s scored the most “meaningless” goals (i.e. scored in defeat) this season? (Andy, Surrey)MARTIN SAYS: Charlie Austin has been on prolific form this season for QPR, netting 17 Premier League goals so far this term, but he tops the list of goals scored in defeats with six.Next up is Wilfried Bony who, before moving to Manchester City, scored four goals in Swansea losses. One of them, incidentally, was against his current club as he put Garry Monk’s men in front at the Etihad Stadium in November, before Stevan Jovetic and Yaya Toure won the points for City.Burnley’s Danny Ings and Everton’s Kevin Mirallas have scored three times and been on the losing side, while Sergio Aguero’s double at Old Trafford means he is one of 13 players on two goals – Saido Berahino, Ander Herrera and Harry Kane are among the other names on that list.Broken homes QPR: have lost six home games in a row Hi Martin, QPR have lost six home league games in a row. What’s the worst run and where does that rank? #TylersTeasers (Dan, Southampton)MARTIN SAYS: Four teams have gone on worse runs at home than QPR’s current spell, although Sunderland’s record of 10 in succession was split over two seasons. They lost eight in a row as they were relegated in 2002/03 before they lost their first two home games on their return to the Premier League in 2005/06.Wolves lost nine on the bounce at Molineux in 2011/12 as they finished bottom of the pile, while Bolton were another to spread a bad home run over two seasons, losing their last two of the 2010/11 before extending that run to a total of seven at the start of the following campaign, which saw them go down at the end of the season.Derby are the only other side to lose more home Premier League games in succession than QPR have, tasting defeat on their own doorstep seven times in a row in a season which saw them earn a record-low points haul of 11.It’s not all doom and gloom for Chris Ramsey’s men, though. Wigan lost six on the spin at home in 2006/07 and they ended up finishing 17th in the table to preserve their top-flight status. QPR will be hoping to improve their form and stop this run in their two remaining home games against West Ham and Newcastle.Passing trend Jose Mourinho: Chelseas passing was a little bit off Chelsea only completed 70 per cent of their passes at QPR – what’s the record for the worst pass completion rate in victory this season? (Sarah, Milton Keynes)MARTIN SAYS: It certainly wasn’t a vintage performance at Loftus Road, but Chelsea took the points with their only shot on target of the game. Their pass completion rate pales into comparison with some other winning teams in the Premier League this season, though.Burnley completed just 50 per cent of their passes against Aston Villa in November, but a quick-fire Danny Ings double gave Sean Dyche’s men a 2-1 win at Villa Park.West Ham, meanwhile, have been on both sides of such a result. Morgan Amalfitano and Diafra Sakho scored as the Hammers beat Man City 2-1 back in October, and they completed just 60 per cent of their passes. They were on the receiving end when Crystal Palace also registered a completion rate of 60 per cent, but that didn’t stop the Eagles winning 3-1 at Upton Park.

The NHL Play of the Year showdown kicks off with some slick moves going head-to-head with a combination of soft hands and endless patience. http://www.authenticrocketsproshop.com/Tracy-Mcgrady-Jersey/ . According to TSN Hockey Insider Darren Dreger, the Maple Leafs have trade offers on the table for the 26-year-old, but none have been deemed acceptable by the team.Mexico City, Mexico (SportsNetwork.com) -Reigning Apertura champions America opened their Clausura season with a 3-2 win over Leon on Saturday at the Estadio Azteca. America claimed a 3-1 aggregate win over Tigres in the Apertura final back in December to claim its 12th Mexican league title, and the club hoped to get the winter campaign on the right foot. It didnt take long for the defending champions to get off the mark as Mexico international Oribe Peralta found the back of the net after just three minutes and added a second tally four minutes later. Leon battled back to pull level at 2-2 when Moises Velasco netted an own goal and Mauro Boselli scored after 39 minutes, leaving all to play for in the second half. The winning tally came with 25 minutes left as Carlos Darwin Quintero fired past Leon goalkeeper William Yarbroough to secure all three points for America. Donatas Motiejunas Jersey. Also on the opening weekend of the Clausura, Matias Alustiza scored a pair of stunning goals to lead Puebla to a 2-1 win over Tijuana, while Edy Brambilas 79th-minute strike handed Atlas a 1-0 win over Tigres.
