Sports Mole looks back over the weekend's Premier League action with a host of facts and figures.

Aston Villa 2-0 Cardiff City

After 451 minutes, hosts Villa ended their wait for a Premier League goal when Leandro Bacuna broke the deadlock.

What's more, Bacuna's strike was only the second time that Paul Lambert's side have scored the opening goal of a match this term.

From visiting Cardiff's point of view, they are yet to keep a clean sheet.
