Comments:

League position: 5th Manchester City avoided losing four consecutive games in all competitions for the first time since August 2006, and losing four consecutive games without scoring for the first time since March 1986. City had now won 50 games in the Premier League by a margin of four or more goals. They had now scored 904 goals in 463 home games in the Premier League (conceded 443). Ferran Torres scored after 15 minutes but the goal was disallowed after a VAR review due to a foul being committed.

Comments:

League position: 20th Only Sunderland (20 games between 2003 and 2005) had now lost more consecutive games in the Premier League than Norwich City. The Canaries had now lost 19 of their last 23 away games in the Premier League (won one). Tim Krul had now lost on all of his seven appearances at the Etihad Stadium in the Premier League and conceded 30 goals.
