Comments:

League position: 8th Wolverhampton Wanderers had now kept clean sheets in three consecutive games in the top division for the first time since November 1981 in League Division One. 600 goals had now been scored in Wolves’ 217 games in the Premier League (scored 241, conceded 359). Diogo Jota had now scored eight goals in his last seven appearances at Molineux in all competitions, including five in the last two.

Comments:

League position: 20th Norwich City had now won one of their last 14 games in the Premier League. The Canaries remained as the only team yet to recover a point from a losing position so far in this Premier League season. City had now taken 18 points from their 27 games so far in this Premier League season. 18 points has been the lowest tally a team has had after 27 games of a season in the division and gone on to avoid relegation (West Bromwich Albion in 2004-05, Portsmouth in 2005-06 and Leicester City in 2014-15).
