Comments:

League position: 5th Arsenal lost their first home Premier League game since January 2017 as they failed in their attempt to win 13 home league games in a row for the first time since November 2005. The Gunners also failed in their attempt to set a new club record of seven consecutive top division home wins from the start of a season. Alexandre Lacazette had now scored more home goals in the Premier League this season than any other player (six).

Comments:

League position: 2nd Antonio Valencia scored Manchester United's 50th goal in all competitions in this season (23rd game); six games quicker to the milestone than last season and 13 games quicker than in 2015-16. Jesse Lingard had now scored three goals in his last two Premier League games; as many as in the previous 51 games. Paul Pogba was shown a red card in league competition for the first time since May 2013 for Juventus against Palermo in Serie A.
