Comments:

League position: 9th This was the first time in their last 63 games in all competitions that Sheffield United had lost by more than a one goal margin since a 3-0 defeat at Middlesbrough in the League Championship on 7 August 2018. This was the Blades' first defeat in their last eight games in the Premier League (won two). At 33 years and 303 days, Billy Sharp became the oldest English outfield player to make his first start in the Premier League since Chris Lucketti, also for Sheffield United, against Portsmouth on 7 January 2007 (35 years and 107 days).

Comments:

League position: 11th Allan Saint-Maximin became the 148th player to score a goal in the Premier League for Newcastle United. Only West Ham United had more different scorers in the competition (150). Jonjo Shelvey had scored in consecutive games in the Premier League for the first time in his career, and in consecutive league games for the first time since November 2011 for Blackpool at Burnley and Leeds United in the League Championship. The Magpies had now won their last three midweek games in the Premier League (Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday) after failing to win any of their previous 20 games in the division on the same days (lost 11).
