Comments:

League position: 3rd Chelsea had now won six consecutive games in the Premier League for the first time since May 2017. Frank Lampard became the seventh English manager to win six consecutive games in the Premier League, and the first since Alan Pardew with Newcastle United in April 2012. Tammy Abraham became the first Englishman to score ten or more goals in a season in the Premier League for the Blues since Frank Lampard in 2012-13.

Comments:

League position: 10th This was Crystal Palace’s 400th game in the Premier League (won 115, lost 186) and their 200th away game in the division (won 55, lost 94). Palace were now without a win in their last four games in the Premier League (lost three) and conceded eight goals. This was Roy Hodgson's 300th game in the Premier League as a manager. He became the 16th manager to reach this total and the sixth Englishman (also Harry Redknapp, Sam Allardyce, Steve Bruce, Alan Curbishley and Alan Pardew).
