Comments:

League position: 2nd This was the second time that Manchester United had lost a home game in the Premier League against a team who started the day at the bottom of the table (also versus Blackburn Rovers in December 2011). The Red Devils failed in their attempt to win six consecutive games in the Premier League for the first time since January 2017. This was the second time that United had failed to score in a home game so far in this Premier League season (played 17).

Comments:

League position: 20th This was West Bromwich Albion's first win in their last 16 away games in the Premier League (lost 11). Jay Rodriguez had now scored three goals in his last four appearances in the Premier League. Darren Moore had now taken four points from his two games as Albion's caretaker manager; the same total that Alan Pardew took in his final 11 Premier League games in charge.
