Comments:

League position: 16th Wolverhampton Wanderers had now lost 11 of their last 17 games in the Premier League (won four). Wolves had now failed to score in six of their last eight games in the Premier League. They had now lost four consecutive home league games for the first time since November 2016 in the League Championship.

Comments:

League position: 9th Brentford became the second team to concede no more than two goals in their first five games in the Premier League; also Everton in 1992. The Bees became the first promoted team to take eight or more points from their first five games in the Premier League since Wolverhampton Wanderers in 2018-19. Ivan Toney had now scored 15 of the 16 penalties he had now taken in league games.
