Comments:

League position: 13th Brighton and Hove Albion avoided completing a run of remaining without a win in their opening five league games of a year for the first time since 1998 in League Division 3. Albion scored three goals in a game for the third time in this Premier League season (twice against West Ham United). Glenn Murray had now scored five goals in his last seven appearances in all competitions for the Seagulls; as many as he had scored in his previous 19 games this season.

Comments:

League position: 12th West Ham United had now lost four Premier League games in a season against newly promoted sides for only the second time (also in 2006-07). The Hammers failed in their attempt to remain unbeaten in their opening six games of the year in the top division for the first time since 1974. This was Javier Hernandez's 200th appearance in European league football (115 starts and 78 goals).
