Comments:

League position: 2nd Sergio Agüero had now scored ten of the 21 hat-tricks scored by Manchester City in the Premier League. Only Alan Shearer had now scored more hat-tricks in the competition (11). Sergio Agüero had scored in the first minute of both of Manchester City’s last two games. They were also the two quickest goals so far in this Premier League season (24 seconds at Newcastle United on 29 January and 48 seconds in this game). City conceded inside the opening 15 minutes of a game in the Premier League for the first time since 14 January 2018 when Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain scored for Liverpool after nine minutes. 24 year-old Raheem Sterling made his 300th club career appearance in this game (129 for Liverpool, 171 for City).

Comments:

League position: 6th Arsenal were now without a win in their last six away games in the Premier League (lost four). The Gunners remained as the only team not to have kept a clean sheet in an away game so far in this Premier League season (played 12). Sergio Agüero’s opening goal after 48 seconds was the fastest goal conceded by the Gunners in the Premier League since Peter Crouch at Stoke City on 6 December 2014 (19 seconds). Shkodran Mustafi made his 100th club appearance in England in this game (one for Everton, 99 for Arsenal).
