Comments:

League position: 7th Wolverhampton Wanderers had now recovered 15 points from losing positions so far in this Premier League season; more than any other team. Wolves had now conceded the first goal in 15 of their 22 games so far in this Premier League season; at least two more than any other team. Excluding own goals, they had now became the first team since Stoke City in December 2016 to have had none of their last 50 goals in the Premier League scored by an Englishman.

Comments:

League position: 13th Newcastle United became the ninth team to score 500 goals in their away games in the Premier League (played 471, conceded 747). They avoided losing four consecutive games in the Premier League for the first time since May 2018. The Magpies had now made two substitutions before half-time due to injury in consecutive games in the Premier League.
