Comments:

League position: 10th Excluding the inaugural 1992-93 season, Brentford failed in their attempt to become the second team to remain unbeaten in their first four games in the Premier League after Portsmouth in 2003-04. This was the Bees' first defeat in their last 16 league games since 3 March 2021, so ending the longest current such unbeaten run in the top four divisions. They had now lost four of the 31 games they have played at the Brentford Community Stadium in all competitions (won 18).

Comments:

League position: 4th This was Brighton and Hove Albion's first win in London in their last ten visits in the Premier League since their victory at Arsenal in December 2019. The Seagulls had now kept clean sheets in 11 games in the Premier League in 2021; only Chelsea and Manchester City had kept more. Albion had now won consecutive away games in the Premier League for the first time since February 2021.
