Comments:

League position: 20th Sheffield United had now lost six consecutive league games for the first time since September 2013 in League One, and for the first time in the top division for the first time since September 1975 (League Division One). The Blades had now lost their first three games of a league season for the third time and failed to score in the first three games of a league season for the first time in their history. They had now scored two goals in their last seven games in all competitions.

Comments:

League position: 6th Leeds United had now won 14 of their last 17 league games (lost two, 11 clean sheets). Patrick Bamford became the first player to score in each of United's opening three games of a top division season since Mick Jones in 1968-69 in League Division One. Captain Liam Cooper made his 200th appearance for Leeds in this game.
