Comments:

League position: 6th Manchester United had now gone eight games without a win in all competitions for the first time since November 1989 to January 1990 (lost four). United had also gone without a win in six consecutive Premier League games for only the second time. They had a winless run of seven in a row from September to November in 1992. With 64 points in 2015, the Red Devils had totalled their lowest number of points in a calendar year since 1990 (58 points). [c/o MisterChip] Wayne Rooney was booked in the first minute of added time in the second half.

Comments:

League position: 14th This result meant that reigning champions Chelsea had completed a run of three Premier League games without defeat for the first time in the 2015-16 season. The Blues remained without an away league win since their visit to West Bromwich Albion on 23 August 2015. With 61 points in 2015, Chelsea had equalled their lowest points tally in a calendar year since 1998. [c/o MisterChip] Ruben Loftus-Cheek replaced Oscar in the third minute of added time in the second half.
