League position: 6th Tottenham Hotspur had now lost consecutive games in the Premier League for the first time since their final two games of the 2015-16 season. Spurs had now kept a clean sheet in two of their last eight games in the Premier League. They had won eight of their preceding nine home games in the Premier League; the other game was a 3-1 defeat by champions Manchester City on 14 April 2018.

Comments:

League position: 2nd Liverpool had now won their opening five games of a top division season for the third time; also 1978-79 and 1990-91 in League Division One. In his 58th appearance, Georginio Wijnaldum scored his first goal in an away game in the Premier League (19 games for Newcastle United and 39th for Liverpool). The Reds had yet to lose an away game in all competitions when Roberto Firmino had scored (played 24, won 21).
