Comments:

League position: 16th With this result, Leicester City became the first club in the top division who had failed to score in their first five league games of a year since Tottenham Hotspur in 1986. They were now also the only team in England's top four English divisions who had yet to score in the league in 2017. In what was their 2,000th game in the top flight, the Foxes became the first reigning champions to lose four consecutive league games since Liverpool in May 1983. After 24 games in this Premier League season, City were now one point above the division's bottom three.

Comments:

League position: 6th Manchester United were now unbeaten in their last 15 Premier League games; their longest such run since March 2013. It was also the longest current undefeated run in Europe's top five leagues. United avoided drawing four consecutive Premier League games for the first time since October 1992. At 35 years and 125 days, Zlatan Ibrahimović became the oldest player to score 15 Premier League goals in a single season. He had now also scored 20 goals in all competitions for a tenth consecutive season.
