Comments:

League position: 6th Only leaders Liverpool had now conceded fewer goals (21) than Sheffield United (25) so far in this Premier League season. Dean Henderson became the 11th goalkeeper aged under 23 to keep ten or more clean sheets in the Premier League. Billy Sharp had now scored four goals in his last three league appearances against Norwich City.

Comments:

League position: 20th Norwich City had now failed to score in open play in their last six away games in the Premier League. The Canaries failed in their attempt to win consecutive games in the Premier League for the first time since April 2016. They remained as the only team that had yet win a point from a losing position so far in this Premier League season.
