Comments:

League position: 15th Aaron Cresswell's goal was the 600th goal that West Ham United had scored in their home games in the Premier League (played 420, conceded 526). The Hammers had now won only one of their 17 games in this Premier League season against teams currently in the top half of the table (lost 11). They had now conceded more goals than any other team in this Premier League season (67). It was also the most they had conceded in season in the competition since 2010-11 when they were relegated (70).

Comments:

League position: 1st With an own goal from their former defender Pablo Zabaleta, champions Manchester City became the first team to score 100 goals in a Premier League season on two occasions (also 102 in 2013-14). The Citizens reached the 100-goal mark in a top division season in the fewest games (35) since Everton in 1931-32 (32 games). Leroy Sané's goal meant that City became the first team with four players who scored ten or more goals in a Premier League season since Arsenal in 2012-13.
