Comments:

League position: 14th Reigning champions Chelsea had still to win consecutive Premier League games in this season. They had now conceded two or more goals in 12 games in this Premier League season. The Blues only did so six times in the entire 2014-15 season.

Comments:

League position: 13th This was the first time that both goalkeepers had been shown yellow cards in a Premier League game since Hull City's visit to Portsmouth on 20 March 2010. Boaz Myhill was the Hull keeper on that occasion. The Baggies failed in their attempt to win three consecutive Premier League games for the first time since November 2012.
