Just after the half-hour mark, the Magpies had their best chance of the game when Austin Azzariti played in Lucas Perez, but the Spanish striker’s effort was well saved by Joe Hart. And then there was the moment that summed up the afternoon for Johnson and Newcastle: after being set up by Perez, Azzariti’s shot from just outside the box was saved easily by Hart, with the ball spinning narrowly wide of the post
The Clarets felt that the Spaniard was clipped by Dennis and as a result should have been awarded a spot-kick. However, Kavanagh waved play on, much to the frustration of the home supporters. Semedo had the chance to level proceedings moments later but saw his penalty saved by Nick Pope. Paul Cook's men will now travel to Middlesbrough in the EFL Cup next week hoping to pick up their first victory of the season.
Forest eventually managed to wrest the lead in the 57th minute when striker Chris Cohen was left one-on-one with goalkeeper Rui Patricio and took a touch before firing into the bottom right corner.

All that remained was for the hosts to score, but their luck deserted them as their attempts to take the lead went terribly wrong. Whilst they had their chances, they could not find the back of the net, which made the game end in a 0-0 draw. The game was a great example of how two evenly-matched teams can produce an exciting and competitive match. Whilst the result was not what either team wanted, it was still a good performance from both teams and it
Van Dijk headed home from a corner moments later to put the seal on a comfortable victory and condemn Liverpool to their ninth Premier League loss in a row.

Despite a contentious penalty call, the Red Devils held on for a 2-1 victory, with their dangerous forward Romelu Lukaku netting a brace.

Referees are the worst.” Kavanagh did not take kindly to the insult, hitting back

Kane was shown a second yellow card in the 61st minute after clashing with Defoe, leaving him with a three-game suspension. After the match, Sunderland manager Paolo Di Canio said of Kane's performance, "You can see he is a good player, but we are also a good team. I think Tottenham played better, but sometimes you cannot win because [of] this kind of thing." Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino had a
It was the independent referee who decided the game was over when Traore went tumbling under Felipe’s challenge and that sparked a melee which resulted in both Tate and Sanz being sent off. That could well have been the decisive moment in the game and it was another contentious decision by referee Kavanagh. The game ended 2-1 to Birmingham which means they have now overtaken Manchester City in the Premier League table.

The opening goal came in the 34th minute when Jérôme Boga fed Mile Jedinak with a superb through ball, and the Australian then finished with aplomb to give Forest the lead.

The "Golden Boot" holder responded by stating, "The ref said no, but obviously he's seeing something I'm not seeing. I'm not happy with that." The Football Association later announced that they had requested video footage of the incident from both Premier League and Football Association referees' association.
