Comments:

League position: 4th This was newly-promoted Fulham's first win in their last 13 games in the top division; their longest such run since a sequence of 15 games from February to August in 1950 in League Division One. This was the Whites' first win in their last 25 London derbies in the Premier League since January 2014 (lost 19). Aleksandar Mitrović had now scored three goals in three games so far in this Premier League season to equal his goals total in his preceding season in the division (27 appearances in 2020-21). Bobby Decordova-Reid's opening goal was timed at 44 seconds.

Comments:

League position: 5th Brentford had now conceded two or more goals in each of 14 of their last 17 away games in the Premier League. The Bees had now scored two or more goals in each of five of their last six games in the Premier League. They failed in their attempt to keep a clean sheet in consecutive games in the Premier League for the first time since their opening two games of the previous season. Ivan Toney scored in the 49th minute but the goal was disallowed after a VAR review due to an offside decision.
