Comments:

League position: 20th Huddersfield Town had now lost their last seven games in the Premier League. They had now lost 27 of their 35 games so far in this Premier League season. The competition record for most defeats in a season is 29 by Ipswich Town in 1994-95 (played 42 games), Sunderland in 2005-06 and Derby County in 2007-08. Since February 2018, Town had now failed to score more than one goal in any of their 23 home games in the Premier League (scored ten in total). At 18 years and 40 days, Matty Daly became the youngest player to appear for the Terriers in the Premier League (previously Aaron Rowe against AFC Bournemouth on 9 March 2019, aged 18 years and 182 days).

Comments:

League position: 7th With four games still to play, Watford had now already created new club records in the Premier League in this season for the most points (49), most wins (14) and most goals (49). The Hornets avoided losing four consecutive away games in the Premier League for the first time since May 2018. Gerard Deulofeu had now scored six goals in his last five away games in the Premier League.
