Comments:

League position: 19th West Bromwich Albion were now without a win in their last 16 league games; the longest such run in the club's history. Gareth Barry scored his first goal as a substitute in the Premier League since playing for Aston Villa against Nottingham Forest in April 1999. Recently appointed manager Alan Pardew had now taken 28 points in his last 40 games in the Premier League (won six, lost 24).

Comments:

League position: 2nd Manchester United had now won three consecutive away games in the Premier League for the first time since April 2017. Since the start of the 2016-17 season, former West Bromwich Albion forward Romelu Lukaku had now scored 31 goals in 39 appearances in the Premier League against the 'non-big-six' teams. Jesse Lingard had now scored four goals so far in this Premier League season (all in his last five appearances). He had scored only one goal in his 47 previous games in the competition.
