Comments:

League position: 14th Luka Milivojević scored Crystal Palace's first goals at Selhurst Park in this Premier League season. They therefore avoided equalling the top division record of five consecutive home games without scoring from the beginning of a season. The Eagles had now scored five goals in their last nine games in the Premier League and failed to score in five of them. They had now won one and lost 14 of their last 17 games in the Premier League against the teams that finished in the top six in the previous season.

Comments:

League position: 4th Arsenal failed in their attempt to win 12 consecutive games in all competitions for the first time since October 2007. Despite their run of victories, the Gunners had yet to be leading at half-time in any of their ten games so far in this Premier League season (behind twice). Since the start of the 2016-17 season, they had now conceded more penalties (18) and goals from penalties (17) in the Premier League than any other team.
