Comments:

League position: 9th Arsenal had now conceded one goal in their last five games in the Premier League. After a run of one win in ten games in the Premier League, the Gunners had now won five and drawn two of their following seven games in the division. Martin Odegaard became the first Norwegian to play for Arsenal since Pal Lydersen against Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League on 11 May 1993.

Comments:

League position: 2nd Manchester United had now created a new club record of 18 consecutive away league games without defeat (won 13). Two of the Red Devils' last three away games in the Premier League had now ended in goalless draws (also at Liverpool). Following their 1-6 home defeat to Tottenham Hotspur on 4 October 2020, United's subsequent five games in Premier League against fellow Bix Six opponents had produced only one goal (in Arsenal's 1-0 win at Old Trafford on 1 November 2020).
