Comments:

League position: 8th Manchester City had failed to score more than one goal in any of their preceding six games in the Premier League. City avoided failing to win in three consecutive games in the Premier League for the first time since April 2017. Riyad Mahrez's hat-trick was his second in the Premier League; also for Leicester City at Swansea City on 5 December 2015. Manchester City scored after 76 minutes but the goal was disallowed after a VAR review due to an offside decision.

Comments:

League position: 18th Burnley failed in their attempt to equal their club record of keeping clean sheets in three consecutive away games in the top division for the first time since August 1955. This was the Clarets' biggest defeat since a 5-0 loss at Manchester City in the Premier League on 22 June 2020. They had now lost six of their opening nine games on a league season for the first time since 1981-82 in League Division Three.
