Comments:

League position: 10th Brighton and Hove Albion had now lost one of their last ten home games in the Premier League (won five). This was the first time that two substitutes had scored in the first-half of a game in the Premier League. This was the sixth time that the Seagulls had scored three or more goals in a game in the Premier League (played 53). Leon Balogun scored only 25 seconds after coming on as a substitute. It was the second quickest goal by a substitute so far in this Premier League season (Liverpool's Daniel Sturridge scored after 24 seconds against West Ham United on 12 August 2018).

Comments:

League position: 15th Crystal Palace failed in their attempt to win consecutive games in the Premier League for the first time in this season (played 15). The Eagles had now taken one point from their last five away games in the Premier League. This was the 50th time that Palace had conceded exactly three goals in a game in the Premier League (played 365).
