“Chapeau to Charlie Robinson, who clearly didn’t get the memo that claims followers both finish of the A52 can solely want one another ailing,” says Joshua Robinson. “As Invoice Bryson says, being English means having an irrational hatred of individuals from a city similar to your individual 20 miles away. I now formally need Derby to get again to the Championship by means of the play offs.”
Pretty sentiments, however come on: which group do you
45 min: Everton 0-1 Newcastle Keane will get away from his marker forward of the close to submit however can’t steer a low nook on track. It was a reasonably powerful probability. Trippier is again on however he can’t run. I suppose he would possibly as properly wait and see what the physio’s creamy, therapeutic fingers can do at half-time.
45 min: Southampton 0-0 Bournemouth There’s an attraction for a penalty when Ainsley Maitland-Niles by chance heads the ball in opposition to his hand within the Southampton space. No penalty as a result of he touched it onto his personal hand.
44 min: Everton 0-1 Newcastle Kieran Trippier is limping closely. He’s a troublesome outdated twist however he’s struggling right here. In the meantime, right here’s the opening purpose from Callum Wilson.
41 min: Everton 0-1 Newcastle Onana is booked for one thing or different*. Look, I used to be checking on Travis’s charity attraction, okay! (Thanks so a lot to all of you who’ve donated.)
* I’ve simply seen the replay, it was a tactial foul on Guimaraes.
An important begin for Man Utd in north London. I’ve no concept how the purpose took place, however I do know a person who does.
38 min: Everton 0-1 Newcastle These are harmful instances for Everton, with Newcastle urgent for a second.
36 min: Southampton 0-0 Bournemouth A tearful Romain Perraud limps off to get replaced by Ainsley Maitland-Niles. I’m unsure what occurred as a result of I used to be watching replays of Callum Wilson boggling up that probability for Newcastle – he doesn’t appear to be in critical ache, however he’s clearly distresssed so perhaps he has pulled one thing and fears his season is over.
Maitland-Niles has gone to right-back, with Kyle Walker-Peters shifting to the left.
Everton 0-1 Newcastle
“Completely mind-gobbling how Wilson managed to ‘boggle up the rebound’,” says Tim Sales space.
Heh, excellent. I can promise you I’ve been responsible of worse typos, primarily invite the reduce stroke in cricket.
Everton 0-1 Newcastle
“Is that this a mus-win for Everton?” says Mary Waltz. “So far as the maths, no. They might technically lose and nonetheless keep away from relegation. And technically the Reform social gathering may win the following UK normal election however I wouldn’t place a guess on it.”
I believe they’ll keep up in the event that they lose tonight, however Leicester away on Monday then turns into the mom, father and prolonged household of all musn’t-lose video games.
Match report: Barcelona 1-1 Chelsea (agg: 2-1)
Right here’s Sid Lowe’s verdict from the Camp Nou, the place Barcelona held off Chelsea to succeed in one other Champions League last.
Kick off: Tottenham v Man Utd
Be part of ‘Massive’ Barry Glendenning for stay updates from the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Everton 0-1 Newcastle “I haven’t been in a position to catch an Everton match since Calvert-Lewin bought wholesome,” says Justin Madson. “It’s spectacular how a lot he brings a brand new dynamic to the group. When the midfield will get maintain of the ball, they really have an outlet up entrance versus sideways or backwards, and he has completed very properly to get that additional contact that permits them to maintain possession. Spectacular ahead play from him to date.”
I really feel a bit soiled saying this, however you may make a really high-quality XI from gamers who may be relegated within the subsequent month. Southampton alone have three or 4 who will likely be coveted by Champions League golf equipment in the event that they go down.
Bother for Everton. They’ve began properly however now they’re behind. Joelinton made the purpose with a terrific run and fierce shot that was pushed away to his left by Pickford. It hit Tarkowski, who may do nothing, and Callum Wilson reacted fantastically to boggle up the rebound.
26 min: Southampton 0-0 Bournemouth Dominic Solanke lends the ball to Ryan Christie within the space, then takes it off him and drives simply over the bar along with his left foot. He’s wanting actually harmful.
25 min: Everton 0-0 Newcastle Everton’s urgency is inflicting Newcastle a couple of issues. After one other little scramble, Calvert-Lewin’s shot spins behind.
21 min: Everton 0-0 Newcastle A fierce, wobbling shot from McNeil is just too straight and comfortably saved by Pope.
21 min: Southampton 0-0 Bournemouth “It’s a rattling good recreation,” says the commentator Paul Dempsey on Sky, and the climate is actually contributing. The rain is biblical.
20 min: Everton 0-0 Newcastle Whereas I used to be squinting at that Solanke offside, Calvert-Lewin nearly had an opportunity when he chopped contained in the final man Schar within the space. Schar did properly to get himself between Calvert-Lewin and the ball.
No purpose! Southampton 0-0 Bournemouth I’d wish to see that once more. The suggestion is that Solanke’s head and shoulders had been offside.
Solanke was put by means of on purpose, with McCarthy making a high-quality save to disclaim him. The ball rebounded to Vina, who completed emphatically from the sting of the world.
Disallowed purpose! Southampton 0-0 Bournemouth Matias Vina finishes fantastically from the sting of the rea, but it surely’s dominated out for an offside in opposition to Solanke. Dangle on, I believe it will overturned by VAR…
“The title is in Manchester Metropolis’s fingers proper now, so the relegation battle is the place the true curiosity lies,” writes Charlie Robinson. “Despite the fact that I’m a Derby County supporter, I used to be delighted to see Forest win final evening, and I’ll let you know why. Sure, it’s partly as a result of my dad and certainly one of my finest buddies are Forest followers, but additionally as a result of the Premier League wants extra provincial (and Midlands) golf equipment like Forest and Leicester in it.
“Moreover, it’s enjoyable to see supposedly massive golf equipment within the combine. Sorry to Everton and Leeds followers, however that is simply how issues are. Ideally, Chelsea would get dragged into this relegation combat. Am I bitter and jealous? Sure! After all! Am I unhappy and lonely? Subsequent query!”
13 min: Southampton 0-0 Bournemouth After a little bit of a scramble within the Bournemouth space, Adam Armstrong slaps a shot from a good angle that hits the skin of the submit and goes behind. Neto may need bought a contact along with his legs, I’m unsure.
12 min: Everton 0-0 Newcastle Gueye gained the free-kick; Gueye wastes the free-kick by curling it a couple of yards over the bar.
11 min: Everton 0-0 Newcastle Idrissa Gueye is fouled proper on the sting of the D by Sean Longstaff. I forgot to say: as a result of it’s not Saturday 3pm, I can truly watch the video games tonight!
9 min: Southampton 0-0 Bournemouth Marcus Tavernier has a close-range shot blocked after Bournemouth break. The situations – it’s John Cusack climate – are making issues attention-grabbing.
6 min: Southampton 0-0 Bournemouth Alex McCarthy, beginning his first league recreation of the season tonight, slips on the moist pitch whereas controlling a backpass and is sort of robbed by Dominic Solanke. ‘Virtually’ being the operative phrase: he bought away with it.
5 min: Everton 0-0 Newcastle Nothing a lot to report, although Everton have began with intent. Iwobi’s cross simply evades the flying Calvert-Lewin, who’s slyly eased away from the ball by Trippier. Sensible defending.
“Good morning Rob…” writes our resident Australian Newcastle fan, Chris Paraskevas. “4.45am kick-offs supply the possibility to essentially ‘seize the day’ as my outdated English instructor used to repeat continuously (having by no means been subjected to certainly one of our non-performances at Goodison through the years). Often a tough journey for us. Goodison nonetheless an old-fashioned floor. Looks like solely yesterday that Tim Cahill was taking part in for them… and Florian Lejeune was equalising for us.”
This was the primary recreation that got here to my thoughts, a well-known win for the canine of battle. For some cause I believed Duncan Ferguson had scored the purpose.
3 min: Southampton 0-0 Bournemouth Neto makes an honest early save to his left from Theo Walcott, although I believe Walcott was barely offside. After final evening, who is aware of.
Peep peep! Two important Premier League video games are underneath means.
Everton v Newcastle A observe on the Newcastle group: Dan Burn has been unwell, which is why he’s solely on the bench.
Right here come the gamers. The noise at Goodison is spectacular, as is the rain at St Mary’s.
Now, to extra necessary issues than a Premier League relegation battle. An area animal shelter, Comfortable Landings, does great work taking care of cats and canine particularly. One new resident – a captivating and affectionate, if not at all times aromatic pug known as Travis – wasn’t in a great way when he arrived and wishes pressing surgical procedure earlier than he could be rehomed.
The attraction for his medical prices was met in simply over a day however all donations assist a lot with day-to-day requirements, by no means thoughts future operations. And simply think about how a lot Travis would grunt with happiness if he knew he was a minor web movie star.
When you’d wish to donate, or simply have a look at footage of Travis and the opposite canine, right here’s the hyperlink. Roy Keane could be happy with you.
Barcelona will play Wolfsburg or Arsenal within the Girls’s Champions League last on 3 June after a tense semi-final second leg on the Camp Nou. It’s an honourable defeat for Chelsea, who gave all the things and had been excellent within the second half, however in the end the tie was selected Saturday at Stamford Bridge.
“I may need emailed this for a earlier Everton recreation,” says Matt Burtz, “however right here goes once more: this recreation isn’t should– win, but it surely’s about as shut because it will get. Contemplating they solely have two video games at Goodison after tonight, and one is in opposition to the Loss of life Star that’s Manchester Metropolis, a loss right here could be, let’s say, lower than splendid.”
WCL: Barcelona 1-1 Chelsea (agg: 2-1)
5 minutes plus added time to go on the Camp Nou, the place Chelsea are pushing for the purpose that may take the tie to extra-time. Observe it with Sarah Rendell.

Lose a cup last and also you rock up subsequent season again within the recreation. Lose tonight and that hope turns into an increasing number of moot. I’m not panicking… but.”

Southampton v Bournemouth
This piece is outdated now but it surely’s an attention-grabbing learn concerning the historical past of native rivalry – or lack thereof – between Southampton and Bournemouth.
GOAL! Barcelona 1-0 Chelsea (agg: 2-0; Hansen 63)
It appears like Chelsea are on their means out of the Champions League. Caroline Graham Hansen, who scored the one purpose at Stamford Bridge, has punished them on the break on the Camp Nou.
Everton are nineteenth regardless of performing fairly properly underneath Sean Dyche. (Within the kind desk since Dyche took over, Everton are fifteenth and Chelsea are in backside three.) The final house recreation, a 3-1 loss to Fulham, was a sickener they usually actually can’t afford one other defeat forward of a fair larger recreation at Leicester or Monday.
Ought to they produce certainly one of these nice Goodison Thursday nights and beat Newcastle, they may bounce to sixteenth. Snakes and Ladders has bought nothing on this factor of ours.
Newcastle are nonetheless excessive on a pure hit of widespread fashionable drug Lads, It’s Tottenham on the weekend. A win at Goodison would transfer them eight factors away from fifth-placed Villa, having performed a recreation extra, and 9 away from Liverpool in sixth.
They’re in nice kind, with six wins in seven, however had been overrun at Villa Park of their final away recreation. On nights like this at Goodison Park, most effort is the minimal requirement for each groups.
Southampton are adrift of the remainder – 4 factors behind Everton, six from security. However they performed so properly on the Emirates on Friday that an excellent escape just isn’t past the realms. In the event that they win tonight they are going to be solely three factors behind Nottm Forest (who they play every week on Monday) and Leeds, the groups presently in sixteenth and seventeenth.
Bournemouth appeared nearly protected after their spectacular win at Tottenham 12 days in the past, however they had been surprisingly pummelled by West Ham on the weekend and have two important video games developing: Southampton tonight, Leeds at house on Sunday. Win both and they need to be high-quality; lose each and we’ll all be reaching for the Silvio Dante memes.
Tottenham Hotspur v Manchester United

Ruben Selles makes two adjustments from the Southampton aspect that began on the Emirates. Duje Caleta-Automotive is in for the (presumably) injured Armel Bella-Kotchap; the skilled. Alex McCarthy is most popular to Gavin Bazunu in purpose. That’s an attention-grabbing name.

The Premier League desk
WCL: Barcelona 0-0 Chelsea (agg: 1-0)
It’s half time on the Camp Nou, the place issues are going okay for Chelsea of their Champions League semi-final. Barcelona have been the higher group, as they had been at Stamford Bridge, however Chelsea have defended properly and they’re nonetheless proper within the tie.
You possibly can comply with the second half, and perhaps additional time, with Sarah Rendell.
The title race is over*, the highest 4 are set in stone*, however there isn’t an algorithm on the planet – by no means thoughts a humble human being – that may predict with certainty which three groups will likely be relegated from the Premier League.
Wolves and Crystal Palace have extricated themselves from the malodorous stuff*, so seven golf equipment stay within the battle for survival. Three of them are in motion tonight, together with one of many groups we now have prematurely awarded a Champions League place.
The 2 matches, doable to overhype however nonetheless fairly darn large, are Everton v Newcastle and Southampton v Bournemouth. Buckle up, buttercup.
