Comments:

League position: 6th Chelsea avoided failing to win any of their opening four home league games for the first time since 1986-87 in League Division One. The Blues avoided failing to keep a clean sheet in their opening seven games of a league season for the first time since 1990-91 in League Division One. Stamford Bridge became the first ground to witness 100 converted penalties in the Premier League (Chelsea scored 78, conceded 22).

Comments:

League position: 16th Brighton and Hove Albion had now failed to score in 34 games in the Premier League since being promoted to the division in 2017; more than any of the teams currently in the Premier League in the same period. The Seagulls had now won one of their last 16 games in the Premier League (lost nine). Albion had now taken one point from their 14 away games in the Premier League at the big six teams.
