I wasn't aware that being the kick-taker on an Olimpico attempt that comes back to you off the post can put you in an offside position... thought Deulofeu had a legit beef there

Watched on delay. Really thought that VVD backloads was going in. That’s was the longest 2 seconds of the match.

Pukki gets a run on Söyüncü and it’s 1-0 Norwich

Vardy levels off a corner, great ball in from Maddison

Well that was a great finish! And he’s onside. VAR has to get this right. It looks like King(?) was off, but he had zero influence on the finish.

edit: VAR gets it right! Everyone go wild!

WOW

Bournemouth's goal at 83' is upheld by VAR even though it looked wayyy offside.

Edit: Yaz is right. Mount played it back onside.

West Ham gets another goal called off by VAR, 2 goals called off and a penalty denied. Last year this game would be 4-0

Everton up by a goal at Old Trafford at the half. Lindelof OG off a corner- De Geavwent up with Mina and DCL to contest the corner, ball went over all of them, fell to Lindelof who was standing there doing nothing, it hit him in the belly and bounced in.

MU had three great chances early and should have scored at least one of them but for the last 20 minutes the play was even.

Toffees areMASH unit. Already decimated and Siggy and Sidibe fell ill. Digne taken out with groin pull. Back to 2015 with Baines and Coleman at fullback. Literally no midfielders left.

Very entertaining match. Both teams want to play on the counter, which has led to some fantastic displays of skill. Second half should be fun.

Edit: I’m talking Wolves-Spurs to be clear.

They may have defensive shortcomings, but when City are given license to attack, they are gorgeous and incisive. Utterly irresistible football.

Oh, and City have also committed 9 fouls this half. They even do that with grace & beauty.

Not really wanting to rub it in the faces of Arsenal fans but it’s not a good sign that Pep is comfortable playing Bernardo as a holding mid against you. Just listless

Derby time!!! Brighton against whoever can still move on Palace, at Selhurst. I wish I could say I was confident, when a guy as old as Roy Hodgson says he’s never seen an injury situation like this (even though he’s surely had worse) it’s a rough situation.

....and Brighton score. Poor defending and a well-taken shot. Plenty of time and space to place the shot in the top right corner

If Brighton couldn’t hate Wilf more, nice move upper left corner 1-1. Brighton just was just trying to run out the clock with 20 minutes still to go.
