Comments:

League position: 14th This was the third home game that Leeds United had scored in the 90th minute or later so far in this Premier League season; also an equaliser against Wolverhampton Wanderers in October and the winner in their preceding game against Crystal Palace. On his 100th appearance for United, Tyler Roberts scored his first goal at Elland Road since the visit of Charlton Athletic in the League Championship on 22 July 2020. Aged 21 years and 278 days, Illan Meslier became the youngest goalkeeper to make 50 appearances in the top division for the Whites since John Lukic in November 1980 in League Division One (19 years and 337 days).

Comments:

League position: 12th Brentford had now conceded two or more goals in each six of their last seven games in the Premier League (none in the other). The Bees remained unbeaten in their last seven league visits to Yorkshire (won four). Shandon Baptiste became the third player who has represented Grenada and scored in the Premier League after Delroy Facey and Jason Roberts.
