Comments:

League position: 2nd This was Manchester United's first defeat in their last 41 games in all competitions at Old Trafford, so equalling the club record set in March 1966 under Sir Matt Busby. The Red Devils conceded two goals at Old Trafford in a game in the Premier League for only the second time under manager José Mourinho (also versus Manchester City in September 2016). United failed in their attempt to win five consecutive games in the Premier League for the first time since 2 January 2017.

Comments:

League position: 1st Manchester City became the first team to win 14 consecutive games in the top division in the same season. Arsenal also achieved the feat between February and August in 2002. City also set a new club record of being unbeaten in 16 league games from the start of a season. They now had an 11-point lead at the top of the Premier League table and, with 46 points from their 16 games, would already have finished in the equivalent of 8th position at the end of the 2016-17 season.
