Comments:

League position: 7th Only Aston Villa (eight) had now dropped more points from winning positions so far in in this Premier League season than West Ham United (seven). The Hammers had now lost two of their last 12 games in the Premier League (won six). Only Diafra Sakho (six) and Trevor Sinclair (five) had now scored more goals than Sébastien Haller (four) in their first seven appearances for West Ham in the Premier League.

Comments:

League position: 4th With 14 points, this was now Crystal Palace's second-best start to a Premier League season after eight games. They had 15 points at this stage in 2015-16. Only Manchester City (33) and Liverpool (30) had now taken more points from their away games in the Premier League in 2019 than the Eagles (25). Other than Luka Milivojević, Patrick Van Aanholt became the first player to convert a penalty for Palace in the Premier League since Christian Benteke at Hull City on 10 December 2016. Jordan Ayew's goal was initially disallowed for offside but the decision was subsequently overturned following a VAR review.
