Everton 1-2 Southampton, Brighton 3-0 Liverpool: football clockwatch – as it happened

Brentford v Bournemouth: team news

In all the excitement, I forgot there was a 5.30pm game. Brentford can move above Liverpool and into eighth by beating Bournemouth, who themselves will jump three places with a victory. Luke McLaughlin has the latest.

The Premier League table

It’s well worth repeating, and repeating, and repeating, that the bottom seven are separated by only two points.

An injury-time equaliser from Bali Mumba – who is on loan from Norwich, and has thus had a good day at two offices – keeps the League One leaders Plymouth seven points clear of third-placed Ipswich in the race for automatic promotion.

Everton 1-2 Southampton

“Something between audible and deafening, Rob,” says David Parnell. “Loud?”

My point exactly. It’s fascinating how much a frantic liveblog can scramble the brain, unless it’s just me.

It’s just me isn’t it.

The top two in the Championship both won, though they had to work harder than many of us expected.

Forest continue their terrific form, with Brennan Johnson scoring both goals after a toothless, Maddison-less Leicester.

Everton 1-2 Southampton

“Alas,” says Gary Naylor, “enough.”

It sounds poisonous, and it’s been a few minutes since the final whistle. Meanwhile, Nathan Jones is growling and punching the air in front of a delirious away end, some of whom chanted “You don’t know what you’re doing” the week before last. Football, bloody etc.

And a precious win for Wolves, who continue their excellent start under Julen Lopetegui thanks to a really good goal from Daniel Podence.

A precious victory for Southampton at Goodison Park, their first in the Premier League under Nathan Jones. Everton have lost four league home games at home in a row for the first time since 1958, and the boos are pretty deafening. Okay, they’re someone between ‘audible’ and ‘deafening’ but I can’t think of the word right now; there’s a lot going on.

Bali Mumba, on loan from Norwich of all teams, has equalised for the League One leaders with a belter!

Brighton’s marvellous form continues with a thumping win over Liverpool. Solly March scored two and Danny Welbeck finished things off with a lovely goal. It takes them above Liverpool and into seventh place.

Jayden Bogle’s second goal has sealed a hard-fought victory for Sheffield United.

Everton 1-2 Southampton

“Hello from Pittsburgh!” weeps Eric Peterson. “One more of too many moments of senselessness from Everton this season, in this case from Anthony Gordon. Thou shalt not foul a Southampton player within 30 yards of your goal! Never give James Ward-Prowse the chance to be brilliant.”

Brighton 3-0 Liverpool

“I loved Danny Welbeck’s Pelé tribute for the third goal,” says Kári Tulinius.

And I love this hot new form of journalism, in which the readers get to see the action being described and the writers don’t.

Everton 1-2 Southampton I’ve just seen Ward-Prowse’s free-kick, and it looks like Jordan Pickford might have been at fault. He didn’t move and, though the only angle I’ve seen it from isn’t great, it doesn’t look like the ball went right in the corner. It certainly wasn’t a howler from Pickford, but it might have been an error.

It took a while, but the leaders have finally broken Coventry down with a superb header from Louis Beyer.

Brennan Johnson seals a precious victory for Forest, scoring his second goal at the end of a terrific counter-attack. Forest are now 13th in the Premier League, and there are only two points separating the bottom seven.

Brighton’s glory is complete. Danny Welbeck has scored a marvellous individual goal to give them the emphatic margin of victory that their performance deserves. This will be their first league win over Liverpool in 62 years.

Nottm Forest 1-0 Leicester

Daniel Amartey has been booked for a foul on Lewis O’Brien. Forest thought he was the last man and should have been sent off; the referee disagreed.

“Big goal at Fir Park where Motherwell have taken the lead against Ross County,” says Simon McMahon. “Dundee United still lead 2-1 at Hibs, and It’s now St. Johnstone 2-3 Livingston.”

Wolves 1-0 West Ham Ruben Neves has hit the bar at Molineux with a trademark rasper. Wolves aren’t going down under Lopetegui, are they.

Championship: Preston 0-4 Norwich

Teemu Pukki has got his second at Deepdale, where Norwich are having a day out in David Wagner’s first league game as manager.

Man Utd 2-1 Man City

“It’s a hard sell to frame Pep as a process manager not focused on trophies when he’s got a massive silverware cabinet and routinely cite how much you’ve won whenever you lose a match,” says Justin Madson. “He doesn’t coach the teams with the talent level and ambition he has coached if he’s a ‘focus on the process’ manager. His teams are built to do one thing only: win silverware, and teams pay him millions to do so.”

I know what you mean, and he does say his style of play is not an artistic choice but the one he believes is most likely to win games. However, I still think he is more process-driven than almost any other manager, <Brent> a perfectionist first and a winner second </Brent>. And to be fair, though he was a bit cakey after the game today, I can think of many great or current managers who are consistently worse losers: Wenger, Ferguson, Klopp, Arteta, Mourinho etc.

Brighton 2-0 Liverpool

Jurgen Klopp has made a quadruple substitution at the Amex Stadium.

The Premier League player of the month for January is… James Maddison. Leicester are bereft without him.

Brighton 2-0 Liverpool

Brighton have now scored 16 goals in their last five games. I don’t whether Roberto De Zerbi has been an upgrade on Graham Potter, but he certainly constitutes a exhilarating change of direction from the cerebral to the primal. That’s an oversimplification but you know what I mean. Please say you know what I mean, because I don’t.

“Dundee United 2-1 up at Easter Road at half-time, and it could have been more.,” says Simon McMahon. Well okay, he said it about 20 minutes ago but I’ve been struggling to keep up with this orgy of netbusting. “Motherwell v Ross County goalless. Livingston three up at St. Johnstone. As it stands United are ninth, only 5 points off the top six, but five points off the bottom too.”

“Jordan Pickford kept Everton up last season and is giving us a chance this season too,” says Gary Naylor. “The only people who say that he’s an automatic choice for England because he’s never let Southgate down haven’t been watching him for the last three years or so.

“Unlike some players, he was intelligent and humble enough to recognise he had an issue and worked with a sports psychologist to sort it. Hugely important for Everton to get his contract sorted.”

It’s interesting how some players just can’t shake off a reputation. John Stones, who has been almost faultless whenever I’ve seen him in the last few years, is another.

Everton 1-1 Southampton Dominic Calvert-Lewin has hit the bar with a deflected shot. It sounds like an end-to-end slugfest in the second half.

It’s been given! That’s a huge goal for Forest, whose home form is giving them a serious chance of staying up.

Brennan Johnson celebrates with Morgan Gibbs-White.

GOAL?: Nottm Forest 0-0 Leicester Forest’s Brennan Johnson has had a goal ruled out for offside – but it’s extremely tight and VAR are checking.
