English Premier League Recap: Ream sees Red in Fulham Loss

2 minutes, 27 seconds Read

Tim Ream will feel hard done by a second yellow that sealed Fulham’s loss, while Ethan Horvath watched Matt Turner steer Nottingham Forest to a win over Auston Trusty and Sheffield United.

Fulham 0 – 3 Brentford
Fulham’s second game back was a game to forget as Tim Ream was shown a second yellow and sent off in the 64th minute.

That red card ultimately was the nail in the coffin for Fulham as the ensuing penalty made it 2-0 in the aftermath. In a relatively even game, Antonee Robinson was called into action with a goalline clearance. Just before halftime, however, Ream’s paired Fulham center-back missed a sideways pass that fell to Yoane Wissa who rounded the helpless backline for a goal.

The penalty came in the 66th minute after a check for a clear and obvious error, and despite the player seemingly unconvinced of a second yellow card, the referee was. Brentford would go on to add one more goal, attacking the flank and squaring a ball to where the missing center-back would be for a tap-in from Bryan Mbeumo for his second on the night Fulham turned around to play Arsenal, Tottenham, and then Manchester City on the bounce, hoping for a quick return of Ream.

Nottingham Forest 2 – 1 Sheffield United
Matt Turner continued as Nottingham Forest’s number 1, with Ethan Horvath on the bench. Auston Trusty was an unused substitute for Sheffield United, while Alex Mighten did not make the team sheet for Forest.

Taiwo Awoniyi scored in the third minute to give Forest a flashbang start. A mistake in the middle saw possession collected by the home side, and a fantastic cross was met with an equal header at the back post. The first half ended with a pair of good saves from Turner.

Sheffield United’s half-time team talk allowed United to emulate the quick start that Forest had, scoring just three minutes after the second half began. Gustavo Hamer curled a delightful ball back across the box to the far upper post.

Substitute Chris Wood came on in the 84th minute, and five minutes later scored the game-winner. The ball started out wide, and Wood was on hand in the middle of the box to snap a header across the goal and into the far post.

Next up for Nottingham Forest is a trip to Manchester United while Trusty will look to get his first minutes on Saturday as they host Manchester City.
Watch the highlight here:

Chris Richards will hope to see the team sheet as Crystal Palace faces off against Arsenal, with Falorin Balogun unlikely to do the same. Luca Koleosho and Burnley’s game against Luton Town was postponed.
