Comments:

League position: 9th Sheffield United avoided losing four consecutive home league games for the first time since April 1965 in League Division One. After nine games of this Premier League season, only Manchester City had kept as many clean sheets as the Blades (four). This was Lys Mousset's first start in the Premier League since 27 February 2019 (for AFC Bournemouth) at Arsenal when he also scored.

Comments:

League position: 5th Arsenal had now lost four of their last seven away games in the Premier League against newly promoted teams (won three); as many as they had lost in their previous 49 such games (won 33). The Gunners had not now come from behind to win an away game in the Premier League for two years (22 October 2017 at Everton). They failed to score for the first time in their last 17 games in all competitions.
