Comments:

League position: 5th Wolverhampton Wanderers had now taken more points from losing positions than any other team so far in this Premier League season (14). Wolves scored three or more goals in a game in the Premier League for the first time since their 3-1 win against Arsenal on 24 April 2019. They had lost each of their preceding 12 games in the top division played on a Friday.

Comments:

League position: 3rd Manchester City lost a game in the Premier League after having led by two or more goals for the first time since 7 April 2018 (3-2 by Manchester United at the Etihad Stadium). Ederson became the second City goalkeeper to be sent-off in the Premier League; also Andy Dibble against Queens Park Rangers on 15 October 1994. Raheem Sterling had now scored more goals in all competitions so far in this season than any other player currently in the Premier League (20).
