Comments:

League position: 13th Watford had now lost their opening league game of a year for the last six consecutive seasons. The Hornets had now trailed by three goals at half-time in three games so far in this Premier League season; more than any other team. They had now kept clean sheets in three of their last 24 Premier League games. Camilo Zúñiga was originally named in the starting line-up before suffering an injury in the pre-match warm-up. Odion Ighalo was promoted to the starting XI with Michael Fólivi taking his place on the bench.

Comments:

League position: 4th Tottenham Hotspur had now scored four goals in consecutive away league games for the first time since October 1960 when they won 4-0 at Wolverhampton Wanderers, 4-0 at Nottingham Forest and 4-3 at Newcastle United. In this game, Spurs led by three or more goals at half-time in a Premier League game for the first time since a 3-0 interval advantage at Sunderland on 4 March 1997 when Steffen Iversen scored a hat-trick in a 4-0 win. Including three games on loan at Norwich City, this was Harry Kane's 100th appearance in the Premier League (59 goals).
