Comments:

League position: 5th Leeds United failed in their attempt to win three consecutive games in the Premier League for the first time since January 2003. Rodrigo scored his second goal in the Premier League; also for Bolton Wanderers against Wigan Athletic on 5 January 2011 (a gap of nine years and 272 days). Patrick Bamford failed in his attempt to become the first player in a newly-promoted team to score in each of their opening four games of a season in the Premier League.

Comments:

League position: 11th Manchester City had now drawn 200 of their 889 games in the Premier League (won 418, lost 271). This was City's first draw in a game in the Premier League since 18 January 2020; the longest current such run in the division. They avoided losing consecutive games in the Premier League for the first time since December 2018.
