California. Duh.
Definite penalty from Sideshow David Luiz, but I think a red is a little harsh, there was a covering defender.

The 718
Moise Kean breaks his duck, and the increasingly-dominant Dominic Calvert Lewin put Everton up 2-0 over Newcastle with a few minutes left.

I don't know how but Everton conceded two to Florian Lejeune in stoppage time for the draw. First goal was at the stroke of 93', second was around 94:30, with 4 minutes of time having been added

Villa pick up a massive 3 points with a 95th minute winner from Konsa. Killer for Watford.

EDIT: Actually, it looks like they are giving it to Mings.

And Kante pulls a Stevie G and slips, allowing Arsenal to equalize on a breakaway with their first shot of the game.

Not first shot on goal. First shot period.

Everton just Everton'd all over themselves. Two goals in the last fucking minute.

Chelsea score in the 84th minute to take the lead, so naturally 10 man Arsenal come right back and equalize in the 87th minute.

Incredibly impressive performance by Bellerin given his conditioning after a month off with a hamstring knock. Martinelli impresses every time he's on the pitch. There was some fortune with that goal, but he was running his ass off all game.

West Ham have injuries yes but look at this shit:
View: https://twitter.com/WestHam/status/1220050999395549184


Fornals was by far the best player in the side when Moyes took over, since then he has started once, and was taken off at 60min despite playing far better than Lanzini. If a manager looks at Lanzini, Snodgrass, Noble, Fornals and Fornals is the one left out then he should be fired on the spot and any drunk from the crowd put in his place.

Moyes is so fucking awful, and yet we'll probably stay up because there are 4 teams even worse than us, but Moyes will get to be manager next season too.

West Ham down 2-0 at the break and it hasn't been that close,
72% possession for Leicester, 8 shots, and basically no threat from West Ham, 2 shots neither even close to goal.

HJAHAHAHAH

West Ham get a penalty on the dumbest foul ever, moving out of the box to chase a bad corner and the defender trips him

Not sure how that wasn't VAR'd a penalty on Fred, he handles the ball while on the ground in his own penalty area

Spurs scored their first 2 goals of 2020, hung on to beat Norwich 2-1. Lo Celso looked really good.

Progress! From what I read it seems like Son was dreadful other than his goal. Moura didn't seem very impressive either. Seems like flipping those 2 would be obvious from an attacking standpoint, although Lucas isn't always a willing defender.

What with VAR and all that, I reckon Shaw has to keep his hands to himself, if he thinks he's favourite to win that header. Not a lot in the challenge but enough to rule it out. Silly boy.

It's ridiculous. So many teams are gutted with injuries. This "festive period" sucks. No one wants to see a bunch of guys with tight-end numbers who they never heard of, unless it's the crowd at Anfield watching the Pool U18s destroying Everton.

Yeah, it wasn't pretty all the time, but if Lo Celso's game today is what he's going to bring, and those 2 get comfortable with his style, that's a good thing going forward. Dele worked hard today too.

Henderson opens the scoring with a powered header off a TAA corner in the 8th minute. Or maybe it was his shoulder.

Traore in a completely free role?

And Alison grabs it on the bounce. That's two scary set pieces already.

I’d bet the set piece that resulted in that missed header was specifically designed to take advantage of how Liverpool moves the offside line up so aggressively after a corner. Good call by Espírito Santo.

Three really if you count the first one that Jonny drew early on, left footed delivery across the face of goal

Hopefully just a knee-to-knee knock, not more serious for Neves.

Edit: He's walking off.

VVD is the best.

Wolves doing a good job defending with width, not getting caught out by the TAA-Robertson exchanges. Liverpool doing a poor job probing the middle for the haps that should leave, especially with Traore playing free and high.
