Comments:

League position: 1st Since their most recent defeat (at Tottenham Hotspur on 21 November 2020 in the Premier League), Manchester City were now unbeaten in their last 23 games in all competitions. They also extended their all-time record for a team in the top division of winning 16 consecutive games in league and cup. City had now equalled their club record of keeping a clean sheet in seven consecutive home games in all competitions; previously from December 1946 to March 1947. Ilkay Gündogan had now scored 11 goals in his last 12 appearances in the Premier League.

Comments:

League position: 9th Tottenham Hotspur had now won one of their last seven away games in the Premier League (lost three) and lost consecutive away games in the division for the first time since October 2019. Spurs remained without a win in their last 25 away games in the Premier League against the team starting the day at the top of the table since a 2-0 victory at Blackburn Rovers on 7 November 1992 (lost 22). This was the first game they had lost in the Premier League by a margin of three goals or more since a 3-0 loss at Brighton and Hove Albion on 5 October 2019.
