After the matches in week three of the English Premier League 2015/16 season, these are five things you should know.

1. Wayne Rooney's goal drought

Manchester United's captain Wayne Rooney fired blanks again in Saturday's 0-0 draw at home to Newcastle United. The striker has now gone 858 minutes without a goal in any competition. The longest run he has hard.


2. Manchester City's winning streak

The Citizens's win against Everton on Sunday was their ninth consecutive league victory. The last time they made that run was 103 years ago.


3. Callum Wilson on a hot streak

Bournemouth striker Callum Wilson continued his goalscoring form, taking home the match ball after his hat-trrick in the impressive 4-3 win over West Ham at Upton Park.

Wilson's hattrick now means that he has scored 15 goals away from home since last season, the highest than any other player in the top 4 division.

4. Reckless Ham

West Ham was for the fifth time reduced to ten men this season following the dismissal of Arsenal on-loan right-back Carl Jenkinson. West Ham were only reduced to ten men three times in 43 games last season but in nine games this season, they have been shown the red card five times.


5. John Terry's red card

Terry's terrible start to the season has continued following his red card against West Brom on Sunday. That red card means Terry could not finish a league game he started for the second consecutive time and also the first time it is happening in his career.
