Comments:

League position: 12th This equalled Brighton and Hove Albion's biggest-ever win in the top division (also 4-1 versus Coventry City on 7 March 1981 and versus Manchester City on 29 December 1979 and 3 October 1981, all in League Division One). Lewis Dunk had now scored four own goals in the Premier League so far in this season; the joint-most by a player in a season in the competition's history along with Liverpool's Martin Škrtel in 2013-14. Only three Englishmen had now scored more goals so far in this Premier League season than Glenn Murray (ten); Harry Kane, Raheem Sterling and Jamie Vardy.

Comments:

League position: 18th This was Swansea City's first defeat in their last six games in the Premier League (won three) and conceded one goal more in this game than in their previous five games combined. The Swans had drawn each of their last five away games in all competitions. City had now have scored ten goals in their 14 away games so far in this Premier League season.
