Comments:

League position: 1st Manchester City had now won 12 consecutive games in all competitions for the first time in their history. City had now kept clean sheets in 15 of their last 19 games in all competitions. They had now won 34 and drawn two of their 36 games in the Premier League when Gabriel Jesus scored.

Comments:

League position: 20th Sheffield United had now conceded more than one goal in a game in one of their last five away games in the Premier League. Having won at Manchester United three days earlier, the Blades failed in their attempt to become the first team to win consecutive league games at the two Manchester clubs since Liverpool in League Division One in April 1982. Captain John Egan made his 100th league appearance for United (54 in the Premier League).
