Comments:

League position: 16th Of the teams in the Premier League throughout 2020, Brighton and Hove Albion had now won the fewest games (five) and drawn the most (13). Albion had now created a new club record of failing to win in nine consecutive home games in the top division. The Seagulls' last eight goals in the Premier League had now been scored by eight different players. Neal Maupay missed a penalty after 20 minutes. Brighton and Hove Albion were awarded a penalty after 90 minutes following a VAR review for a foul.

Comments:

League position: 1st Liverpool remained without a win in four consecutive away games in the Premier League for the first time since March 2017. After ten games, the Reds had now dropped more points from winning positions so far in this Premier League season (six) than in the entire previous season in the division (five). Diogo Jota had now scored five goals in his first eight league appearances for Liverpool; the most in the same period for the club since Ronny Rosenthal in League Division One in 1989-90. Mohamed Salah scored after 34 minutes but the goal was disallowed after a VAR review due to an offside decision. Sadio Mané scored after 83 minutes but the goal was disallowed after a VAR review due to an offside decision.
