3. Longest spell as manager:
Arsene Wenger is unmatched with 21 years and 224 days. Wenger won three Premier League titles and seven FA Cups in total as Arsenal manager. In May 2018, bringing to an end his 22-year stint in charge. The Frenchman enjoyed instant success with the Gunners – leading them to the Premier League and FA Cup double in 97-98 – as well as building the famous 03-04 invincible side.

In the 2007-08 season Derby County won just one match. They won the English top flight twice in the 70s and have an FA Cup title to their name. But in 2007-08 Derby County was the worst team in Premier League history. The lone win came in September against Newcastle United.
5. Fewest points in a season:
That same season, Derby County finished with 11 points. It’s difficult to imagine bigger losers. Derby were an absolute train-wreck during the 2007/08 campaign season and we can’t envisage another Premier League side registering just one win all season.

Over the 38 games played, their league record stood at 26 wins, 12 draws and 0 losses. Arsenal‘s run went beyond just a season though, refusing to lose for a whopping 49 games. Arsene Wenger’s side were stopped just short of the half-century however, by none other than their arch-nemesis, Man United.
10. Fastest Hat Trick:
The entire sequence was clocked at an astonishing 2 minutes 56 seconds, the fastest ever hat trick in the Premier League. It was in 2015 with Southmpton against Aston Villa. 2014/15 was Sadio Mane’s first season in English Football. He performed fairly well, with 10 goals and 4 assists. 3 of those goals would come in the blink of an eye, as Southampton smashed Aston Villa 6-1 in their final home game.
