Comments:

League position: 15th Newcastle United had now won one of their last eight games in the Premier League (lost four). The Magpies had now lost all nine games in this Premier League season against teams who started 2019 in the top eight. They had now lost eight of their 11 home games so far in this Premier League season (won two). Only in 2012-13 (nine) had they now lost more games in a season at St James’ Park in the division.

Comments:

League position: 6th Ole Gunnar Solskjær became only the second manager to win his first four league games in charge of Manchester United; also Sir Matt Busby in 1946. United failed in their attempt score three goals or more in four consecutive games in the Premier League for the first time since September 2011. Romelu Lukaku was timed as scoring only 38 seconds after coming on as a substitute.
