Comments:

League position: 9th Brighton and Hove Albion ended a club record run of 11 consecutive games without a win in the top division: previously ten games in League Division One in February 1983. This was the Seagulls' first home win in the Premier League since the visit of Leicester City on 19 September 2021; longer than any other team currently in the division. Albion scored two or more goals in the first half of a game in the Premier League for the first time since the visit of Watford to the AMEX Stadium on 21 August 2021 (won 2-0), and for third time since the start of the previous season.

Comments:

League position: 13th Brentford had now lost six of their last ten games in the Premier League (won two). The Bees had now conceded two or more goals in each of seven of their last nine games in the Premier League. They had lost one of their preceding 13 league games played on Boxing Day (home versus Ipswich Town in the League Championship in 2014). Brentford named eight of a possible nine substitutes.
