Comments:

League position: 10th In Freddie Ljungberg's first home game in caretaker charge, Arsenal had now completed a run of nine games without a win in all competitions for the first time since March 1977. The Gunners had now taken 19 points from their 15 games so far in this Premier League season; 12 points fewer than at the same stage of the previous season. They had now won fewer than five of their opening 15 games of a league season for the first time since 1975-76 in League Division One (also four). David Luiz scored after 63 minutes but the goal was disallowed after a VAR review due to an offside decision.

Comments:

League position: 13th This was Brighton and Hove Albion's first-ever win in an away game in the Premier League at one of the big six opponents (played 17, lost 15) and the first time they had scored more than one goal in any of those games. The Seagulls avoided equalling their club record of four consecutive defeats in the Premier League. Albion had now scored 31 goals in the Premier League in 2019; fewer than any other team who have been in the division throughout the year.
