Comments:

League position: 12th Brighton and Hove Albion had now won six games in the Premier League in 2019; excluding newly-promoted teams, fewer than any other team (next is Watford with seven wins). The Seagulls failed in their attempt to win four consecutive home games in the top division for the first time. Albion failed in their attempt to win more than four of their opening 13 games in a season in the top division for the second time (previously 1982-83 in League Division One).

Comments:

League position: 2nd Leicester City had now equalled their club record of five consecutive wins in the Premier League. The Foxes now had best defensive record after 13 games of this Premier League season; conceded eight goals and kept clean sheets in each of their last four games. This is the first time that City started a round of games in the Premier League in the top two of the table since the final game of their 2015-16 title winning season.
