Comments:

League position: 19th Fernando Llorente became the first player to turn a Premier League game around from a losing to winning position by scoring twice in added time at the end of the game. He also became second player in the history of the Premier League to score twice in added time at the end of a game (also Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in Manchester United's 8-1 win at Nottingham Forest on 6 February 1999). Swansea City scored five goals for only the second time in a Premier League game (also 5-0 against Queens Park Rangers on 18 August 2012). Wilfried Zaha’s goal was the 400th that the Swans had conceded in the top division (played 287, scored 358). Fernando Llorente scored in the first minute of added time in the second half. He then scored again in the third minute of added time in the second half.

Comments:

League position: 16th Crystal Palace conceded five goals in a league game for the first time since a 0-5 loss at Derby County in the League Championship on 25 September 2010. The Eagles scored four goals in a Premier League away game for only the third time (also in 4-1 wins at Coventry City on 2 November 1994 and at Sunderland on 11 April 2015). Christian Benteke’s goal was Palace’s 300th in the Premier League (played 287, conceded 419). Yohan Cabaye was booked in the sixth minute of added time in the second half.
