Comments:

League position: 14th Newcastle United avoided losing four consecutive games in the Premier League for the first time since January 2021. The Magpies had now kept a clean sheet in five home games in the Premier League since the start of the 2020-21 season. This was their 250th home win in the Premier League. Chris Wood scored in the 23rd minute but the goal was disallowed after a VAR review due to an offside decision.

Comments:

League position: 8th Wolverhampton Wanderers had now failed to score in 15 games in the Premier League so far in 2021-22; the most in division except for bottom of the table Norwich City (17). Wolves became the first team not to concede a goal in the first-half in 15 consecutive away games in the Premier League; previously 14 games by Arsenal from September 1998 to April 1999. They became the third team to play 5,000 games in English league football after Preston North End (5,092) and Burnley (5,009).
