Something just happened in the Premier League that hasn't happened since 2010

Hats off to the 20 teams for serving up some proper goalmouth action.

As if a bonus midweek round of Premier League games wasn't entertainment enough, the top flight's 20 teams achieved something they hadn't collectively managed since 2010.

Across Tuesday and Wednesday night's matches, every single Premier League team scored at least once.

It was the first time that had occurred since November 27 and 28, a weekend which was also memorable for the fact that Dimitar Berbatov scored five times in Manchester United's 7-1 win over Blackburn.

And in a nice bit of symmetry, that occasion – like this one – was matchweek 15 of the Premier League season.

This time there were no big scorelines – in fact no team scored more than three goals – but still every team managed to get the ball in the net.

The feat was achieved when Charlie Austin grabbed a late consolation goal for Southampton in a 3-1 defeat at Tottenham.

It meant there were 33 goals in total across the two days, although no one match contained more than four goals.

But despite the goal glut, according to Opta's Duncan Alexander, Tuesday and Wednesday remain the lowest scoring days on average for Premier League games.
