Comments:

League position: 17th This was Burnley's first win in the Premier League since their visit to Fulham on 10 May 2021; longer than any other team currently in the division. This victory ended a club record run of 14 consecutive home league games without a win; previously 11 from April to November in 1979. This was the Clarets' first home league win since the visit of Aston Villa in the Premier League on 27 January 2021; longer than any other team currently in the division. This was the first time that they had scored three or more goals in the first half of a game in the Premier League at Turf Moor (played 138), and the first time in a home league game since the visit of Nottingham Forest in the League Championship on 22 February 2014. Maxwel Cornet scored after 15 minutes but the goal was disallowed after a VAR review due to an offside decision.

Comments:

League position: 12th Brentford failed in their attempt to become the first newly-promoted team to remain unbeaten in their first five away games in the Premier League since Hull City in 2008-09. The Bees had now lost three consecutive league games for the first time since November 2018 in the League Championship. They conceded three or more goals in the first half of a game since a 3-2 loss to Swansea City in the League Championship on 8 December 2018.
