Comments:

League position: 12th Leeds United avoided losing three consecutive league games for the first time since November 2017 in the League Championship. This was the Whites' first draw in their last 19 games in the Premier League since the goalless visit of Arsenal on 22 November 2020; longer than any other team team currently in the division. They had now failed to score in three consecutive league games for the first time since January 2018 in the League Championship.

Comments:

League position: 4th Chelsea remained unbeaten in the Premier League since their visit to Leicester City on 19 January 2021; longer than any other team currently in the division. The Blues remained unbeaten in Thomas Tuchel's 12 games in charge in all competitions to equal the club record start by a manager; also Luiz Felipe Scolari in 2008. They had now kept a clean sheet in nine of their last 12 games in the Premier League.
