Comments:

League position: 12th Leeds United conceded four or more goals in a home game for the first time since the 4-2 defeat by Derby County in the League Championship Play-Off Semi-final on 15 May 2019. 603 goals had now been scored in the Whites' 238 home games in the Premier League (for 363, against 240). They trailed by two goals after 21 minutes of a game for the first time since a 3-2 win at Aston Villa in the League Championship on 23 December 2018.

Comments:

League position: 2nd Leicester City had now equalled their best start to a season in the Premier League after seven games; also 15 points in 2000-01. The Foxes had now won five of the opening seven games of a season in the top division for the first time in their history. Timed at two minutes and one second, Harvey Barnes' opener became City's quickest goal in the Premier League since Shinji Okazaki scored after 52 seconds against Brighton and Hove Albion on 19 August 2017. Leicester City were awarded a penalty after 90 minutes following a VAR review.
