Comments:

League position: 7th Crystal Palace scored three or more goals in the first-half of a game for the first time since a 5-3 win against AFC Bournemouth in the Premier League on the final day of the 2018-19 season. The Eagles had scored more than one goal in one of their 12 preceding home games in the Premier League in 2020. Palace had lost three of their preceding five games in the Premier League (won one) and conceded two or more goals in each defeat.

Comments:

League position: 15th Patrick Bamford became the first-ever player to score in the first four away games of a league season for Leeds United. United had now lost 100 of their 238 away games in the Premier League (won 73). The Whites had now conceded four or more goals in consecutive league games for the first time since March 2014 in the League Championship. Patrick Bamford scored after 17 minutes but the goal was disallowed after a VAR review due to an offside decision.
