Comments:

League position: 3rd This victory became Leicester City's biggest-ever win in the Premier League; previously 5-1 versus Queens Park Rangers on 24 May 2015. Since Brendan Rodgers’ first game in charge in March 2019, Jamie Vardy had now scored more goals in the Premier League than any other player (14 in 17 games). The Foxes had now won three of their last 19 games in the Premier League that were played on a Sunday.

Comments:

League position: 19th This was Newcastle United's heaviest defeat since a 6-1 loss at Manchester City in the Premier League on 3 October 2015. The Magpies had now won two of their last 11 games in all competitions. Since the start of the previous season, Isaac Hayden had now become the only player to have been shown more than one straight red card in the Premier League.
