Comments:

League position: 3rd Manchester City had now conceded two goals in their last eight games in the Premier League. Phil Foden was now City's leading scorer so far in this season in all competitions with eight goals. Raheem Sterling missed a penalty in the second minute of added time at the end of the game. He had now scored from one of the four penalties he had taken in the Premier League.

Comments:

League position: 17th This was Brighton and Hove Albion's 300th game in the top division (won 76, lost 132). Albion were now without a win in their last nine games in the Premier League; more than any other team currently in the division. The Seagulls remained without a win in their 14 games in the Premier League played in January (lost eight).
