Raúl Jiménez had now scored 15 goals in this Premier League season; the most by a Wolves player in the top division since John Richards in League Division One in 1975-76 (17 goals). With the first game being played on 25 July 2019, this was their 50th game of the season in all competitions.

League position: 18th AFC Bournemouth had now lost ten of their last 11 away games in the Premier League, including all of the last seven. The Cherries' total of seven points from a possible 33 so far in 2020 is the lowest in the Premier League. They had now set a club record in the Premier League of 14 consecutive games without keeping a clean sheet; previously 13 games from March to August in 2016.
