Comments:

League position: 8th Manchester United conceded two goals in the opening ten minutes of a home league game for the first time since 1 January 1992 in a 4-1 defeat by Queens Park Rangers in League Division One. This was only the second time that United had won a home game in the Premier League after trailing by two or more goals; also 5-2 against Tottenham Hotspur on 25 April 2009. The Red Devils had now kept one clean sheet and conceded 14 goals in their first eight games of this Premier League season.

Comments:

League position: 19th Newcastle United conceded three goals in a game in the Premier League for the first time since their 3-1 defeat at Manchester City on 20 January 2018. The Magpies scored two goals for only the second time in their last 13 games in the Premier League. They were now without a win in their first eight games of this Premier League season. The club record for the most games without a win at the start of a top division is ten in 1898-99.
