Comments:

League position: 2nd Manchester United had now conceded 28 goals in their home games in this Premier League season; their most in a league season since a club record 38 goals in 1962-63 in League Division One. The Red Devils had now failed to keep a clean sheet in their last five home games in the Premier League. Edinson Cavani became the third United player aged 33 or over at the start of a season to score ten or more goals in a season in the Premier League, after Teddy Sheringham in 2000-01 and Zlatan Ibrahimovic in 2016-17.

Comments:

League position: 18th Fulham had now drawn two and lost 27 of their 29 games when conceding the first goal in the Premier League since January 2019. In his 43rd appearance in the division, Joe Bryan scored his first goal in the Premier League. 78 goals had now been scored in the Whites' 37 games so far in this Premier League season (27 for, 51 against); fewer than any other team.
