Comments:

League position: 13th This was the first time that Crystal Palace had conceded seven goals in a home league game. The previous heaviest home league defeat was 1-6 (versus Millwall in Division Three South on 7 May 1927, versus Nottingham Forest in Division Three South on 27 January 1951 and versus Liverpool in the Premier League on 20 August 1994). This was the first time that Palace had conceded seven goals in a game since a 7-1 defeat Huddersfield Town in League Division 1 on 28 August 1999. The Eagles had now lost six of their last 11 home games in the Premier League (won two).

Comments:

League position: 1st This became Liverpool's biggest-ever away win in the top division and their biggest away league win since a 7-0 victory at Burton Swifts in League Division Two on 29 February 1896. The Reds scored three or more goals in each half of an away game in the Premier League for the first time since their 6-1 win at Crystal Palace on 20 August 1994. Takumi Minamino became the sixth player to score each of his first four goals for Liverpool in all competitions in away games. [c/o Michael Reid].
