Comments:

League position: 12th Huddersfield Town had now won one of their last seven games in the Premier League. The Terriers had now failed to score in two of their nine home games so far in this Premier League season. Their last league win against the reigning top division champions remained as a 2-0 victory against Wolverhampton Wanderers in September 1954.

Comments:

League position: 3rd Chelsea had now scored ten headed goals so far in this Premier League this season; they only scored eight in the whole of the previous season [Opta Stats]. With their win at John Smith's Stadium, the Blues had now won at 50 different stadiums in the Premier League; only Liverpool had won at more (53). At 17 years and 88 days old, Ethan Ampadu became the second youngest player to appear for Chelsea in the Premier League after Jody Morris (17 years and 43 days).
