League position: 2nd Manchester City had now won 17 of their last 18 games in the Premier League since losing at Newcastle United on 29 January 2019. City had now created a new club record of scoring in 26 consecutive games in the Premier League; previously 25 games from April to December in 2017. Only Arsenal (55 games from 2001 to 2002) and Manchester United (36 from 2007 to 2008) have had longer such sequences. They had now won 17 of their last 18 games in the Premier League that had kicked off at 3pm on a Saturday.

Comments:

League position: 16th Brighton and Hove Albion had now taken 15 points from their 22 games in the Premier League in 2019; fewer than any other team to have played 22 games in the same period. The Seagulls had now failed to win any of their 13 league games against reigning top division champions; more than any other team. They had now taken one point from 13 away games in Premier League against the big six teams. They had conceded in each game and scored in three of them.
