Comments:

League position: 5th West Ham United scored three goals in the first 32 minutes of a game in the Premier League for the first time since their 3-1 win against Bolton Wanderers at Upton Park on 5 May 2007 (29 minutes). The Hammers became the first team to concede two own goals in a game in the Premier League since Swansea City against Arsenal on 14 January 2017 (Jack Cork and Kyle Naughton). They failed in their attempt to win four consecutive home games in the Premier League for the first time since May 2002.

Comments:

League position: 9th This was the second time that Arsenal had avoided defeat in a game in the Premier League after trailing by three or more goals; also in a 3-3 draw at AFC Bournemouth on 3 January 2017. This was the second time that the Gunners had trailed 3-1 at half time in a game in the Premier League; previously in their 8-2 defeat at Manchester United on 28 August 2011. They had now drawn three of their last 21 away games in the Premier League (won eight).
