Acyclic partial matchings on simplicial complexes play an important role in topological data analysis by facilitating efficient computation of (persistent) homology groups. Here we describe probabilistic properties of critical simplex counts for such matchings on clique complexes of Bernoulli random graphs. In order to accomplish this goal, we generalise the notion of a dissociated sum to a multivariate setting and prove an abstract multivariate central limit theorem using Stein's method. As a consequence of this general result, we are able to extract central limit theorems not only for critical simplex counts, but also for generalised U-statistics (and hence for clique counts in Bernoulli random graphs) as well as simplex counts in the link of a fixed simplex in a random clique complex.
