Comments:

League position: 20th West Ham United had now lost their opening four games of a league season for only the second time in their history; also 2010-11 in the Premier League. The Hammers had now lost three consecutive home games in the Premier League against newly promoted teams for the first time; also Brighton & Hove Albion and Newcastle United in the previous season. They had now won two of their last 11 games in the Premier League (lost six).

Comments:

League position: 9th With their first win in the Premier League since February 2012 against Queens Park Rangers, Wolverhampton Wanderers ended their club record run of 17 consecutive games in the top division without a win. This was the first time that Wolves had won a game in the Premier League with a goal in added time at the end of the game (played 156). In his 40th appearance in the competition, Adama Traoré scored his first goal in the Premier League in this game.
