Comments:

League position: 10th West Ham United had now failed to keep a clean sheet in their last eight home games in the Premier League. The attendance of 59,870 created a new club record for the Hammers' highest-ever home gate (previously 56,996 versus Manchester United in the Premier League exactly two years earlier on 2 January 2017). Andy Carroll made his first start in a Premier League game for exactly a year (2 January 2018 against West Bromwich Albion).

Comments:

League position: 13th This was Brighton and Hove Albion's first draw in their last eight away games in the Premier League (won two, lost five). Albion had now taken 26 points from their 21 games so far in this Premier League; four more points than at the same stage of the previous season. The Seagulls had now won one of their last nine top division games played in London (lost seven).
