Comments:

League position: 2nd Along with Manchester City and Liverpool, Chelsea completed the trio of three clubs remaining unbeaten after the first 11 games of a top division season for the first time since 1978-79. Maurizio Sarri was now unbeaten in his first 11 games in the Premier League (won eight) to equal the longest unbeaten start by a manager in the competition set by Frank Clark at Nottingham Forest in 1994. Marcos Alonso made his 100th appearance in the Premier League in this game.

Comments:

League position: 14th Crystal Palace were now without a win in their last six games in the Premier League (lost four). The Eagles had now won one and lost 15 of their last 18 games in the Premier League against the teams that finished in the top six in the previous season. Wayne Hennessey made his 100th appearance in the Premier League for the Eagles in this game.
