Comments:

League position: 14th Brighton and Hove Albion had now taken 100 points from their 97 games in the Premier League (won 24, lost 45). The Seagulls had yet to win a game in the Premier League played in January (played nine, lost five). Albion had now lost their first league game of a year in one of the last 11 years (won six).

Comments:

League position: 4th Only leaders Liverpool (25) had now taken more points from their away games than Chelsea (22) so far in this Premier League season. This was the Blues' first drawn game in the Premier League since Sheffield United's visit to Stamford Bridge on 31 August 2019 to end the longest current such run in the division. César Azpilicueta scored the first goal of the decade in the Premier League. He had now scored three goals in his last 11 appearances in all competitions; as many as in his previous 118 games.
