Comments:

League position: 14th Brentford had now lost four consecutive league games for the first time since December 2016 in the League Championship. The Bees had now lost three consecutive home league games for the first time since December 2018 at Griffin Park in the League Championship. Rico Henry had now scored three goals in 131 appearances for Brentford and his first in the Premier League. Bryan Mbeumo scored after 49 minutes but the goal was disallowed after a VAR review due to an offside decision.

Comments:

League position: 20th With a record of 87 wins in his 208 games in charge, manager Daniel Farke was sacked shortly after this game. This was Norwich City's first win in their last 21 games in the Premier League and, in their 11th game, the first time they had led in this season in the division. The Canaries scored twice in a game in the Premier League for the first time since December 2019 against Tottenham Hotspur to end a run of 28 games when they failed to score more than one goal in the division; only Wolverhampton Wanderers (30 games from 1984 to 2003) had a longer such run in the top division. Teemu Pukki had now scored 14 of City's last 31 goals in the Premier League.
