Benjamin Mendy limps onto the pitch to celebrate Raheem Sterling's winner, Eliaquim Mangala wears Javi Garcia's old Manchester City gear and Renato Sanches passes to the Carabao logo - SEVEN THINGS YOU MISSED

  • Benjamin Mendy defied an ACL injury to get back onto the pitch on Wednesday
  • He couldn't help getting involved in Raheem Sterling's last-ditch winner
  • Renato Sanches' forgetful spell at Swansea hit a new low at Stamford Bridge?
  • David Moyes took his sorry record against former club Everton to new levels?

An action-packed night of Premier League football saw Sam Allardyce watch his new Everton side spoil David Moyes' Goodison Park return with West Ham.

Wayne Rooney was the hero on Merseyside, while Raheem Sterling stole the show in Manchester, scoring a stoppage time winner to maintain City's eight-point lead at the top of the table.

But that was just the half of it on a high-octane night across the country. Sportsmail have listed some things you may have missed in the mayhem...?

Look at Benjamin Mendy run!?

Ruptured knee ligament injury? No problem. No pain is too much to bear when Raheem Sterling curls home a stupendous late winner to register your 12th straight Premier League win.

Benjamin Mendy's Manchester City career came to a stop before it had even got going when he suffered an ACL injury in September.

But the likeable Frenchman has plastered his recovery all over social media in the months since, and boy does it look to have had an impact.

When Sterling's effort rippled into the back of the net and he and his team-mates hared down the pitch in celebration, Mendy could not help but join in.

The defender tweeted: 'Ruptured ACL but who cares after a 95th minute winner'

While donning a baseball cap that makes him easily identifiable, the 23-year-old can be seen limping down the touchline to join in the celebrations with his team-mates.

He tweeted: 'Ruptured ACL but who cares after a 95th minute winner #LookAtMeRunning'

Mendy then grabs hold of the goalscorer and takes a selfie on his phone. We wait for that picture with baited breath, though Danny Murphy didn't have much time for it.

He said on Match of the Day: 'You can't do that, march down with selfies and celebrate goals.'

Pep Guardiola called the left-back 'crazy. He has a six month injury and is running!'

Renato Sanches passes to an advertising board

It's been three months to forget for Renato Sanches since he switched the might of Bayern Munich for the struggles of Swansea.

The Portuguese midfielder, a winner at EURO 2016 and crowned European Golden Boy just last year, has gone from hero to zero in the past 12 months.

Bayern paid £28m to bring him to Germany from Benfica, but he quickly fell down the pecking order before being farmed out on loan in the summer.

Swansea appeared to have pulled off a significant coup. But he has been virtually anonymous, and reached rock bottom at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday.

Picking up the ball in the middle of the park, and under no pressure with time to pick his pass, Sanches plays it towards the touchline.

Unfortunately for the 20-year-old it's not a team-mate in a red shirt he's spotted, but the red Carabao logo on the advertising board.

And you don't need to be a lip-reader to see what Paul Clement thought of it.

He was promptly replaced by Leroy Fer at half-time.?

Thrifty City leave Mangala in hand-me-downs

Manchester City's annual report, released earlier this month, showed record revenues of £473.4million.

Such affluence doesn't stretch the resources enough to keep Eliaquim Mangala warm as the temperatures plummet.

The Manchester City defender - a £32m signing from Porto in 2014 - was forced to wrap up warm in old team-mate Javi Garcia's clothes!

The French centre-back sat on the bench in the Etihad Stadium with a snood in City's blue and white colours, with JG and 14 - the initials and squad number of the Spaniard - embroidered on it.

Mangala and Garcia spent only three days together at the club, with the midfielder leaving for Zenit St Petersburg soon after the centre-back's arrival.

So the likelihood of Garcia passing his warm-weather clothing off as a hand-me-down is pretty slim.

David Moyes' Everton woes continue

David Moyes left Everton for Old Trafford in 2013. He has faced his old side five times since, with Manchester United, Sunderland and now West Ham.

The Hammers' 4-0 demolition at Goodison Park at the hands of his old employers sent a sorry record even further south.

It now reads: P5 W0 D0 L5 GF0 GA12. Yikes.

Dave is ever-present no more

For 74 consecutive weeks, Cesar Azpilicueta suited up for every one of Chelsea's Premier League games and played 90 minutes each time. Then Swansea visit Stamford Bridge in late November, and the Spaniard is dropped.

Chelsea's ever-present defensive leader was rested by Antonio Conte and found himself occupying a spot on the bench alongside fellow first-teamer Eden Hazard.

It brought an end to a run that began in December 2015.

Home comforts

Alexandre Lacazette is certainly finding his feet at the Emirates.

The five goals scored by the French international at the Emirates sees him join Mohamed Salah, Leroy Sane and Romelu Lukaku as the only attackers to have scored five or more at home in 2017-18.

Wayne Rooney thriving at Goodison

It took Wayne Rooney 25 games to score five league goals for Manchester United in 2016-17, but this season, England's all-time goalscorer has bettered his tally in less than half the games.

Rooney's hat-trick against West Ham lifted his total to seven in 12 league games, two more than he registered in his final season at Old Trafford.
