English Premier League Recap: Turner Misses Big in Liverpool Loss

3 minutes, 40 seconds Read

In a dismal weekend for the Americans in the Premier League, Turner’s late gaffe stands out amongst the errors to seal Nottingham Forest’s loss to Liverpool. Ream and Robinson, however, helped see Fulham to a valuable point against Brighton.

Liverpool 3 – 0 Nottingham Forest 

Matt Turner conceded goals on either side of the half to let Liverpool win big at home.

Diogo Jota and Darwin Nunez opened the scoring with a goal each in the 31st and 35th minutes, respectively. The two combined for a shot and a rebound for the first goal, and then Nunez turned home a cross from a close distance

Mo Salah capped off the scoring in the 77th minute with a tap-in after Turner was 30 yards off of his line and missed his clearance. Salah quickly turned goalwards towards an empty net to slot home.

Forest, now 16th, welcomes high-flying Aston Villa on Sunday.

Brighton and Hove Albion 1 – 1 Fulham

Tim Ream and Antonee Robinson went the distance for Fulham, with Ream leading the squad on their away trip to Brighton.

The home side is flying high in seventh place, adding to a stellar last campaign. It was only fitting that they got the scoring started in the 26th minute through Evan Ferguson. The goal scorer got inside of Robinson for a quick two-touch finish to the far post.

Robinson had another error towards the back half of the first half, but the shot was straight at the keeper. Brighton was the best team for 60 minutes, but then Palhinha turned hero for Fulham in the 65th minute with a stunner. Stealing the ball out of Brighton’s possession, Palhinha had two quick touches to score.

Robinson atoned for his earlier errors with a headed clearance late in the game. Fulham, now 14th with a four-way points tie with Chelsea, Wolves, and Crystal Palace, turn their attention to Ipswich on Wednesday for the League Cup.

Bournemouth 2 – 1 Burnley

Tyler Adams is still on the injured reserved list for Bournemouth, but Luca Koleosho was brought back into the starting lineup for the away trip for Burnley.

Charlie Taylor opened the scoring for the visitors in the 11th minute. Just on the edge of the box, Taylor smashed home a finish with his left foot. However, Antoine Semenyo equalized in the 22nd minute with a brilliant piece of individuality. Stealing the ball in midfield, he dribbled 20 yards before slotting far post with his left foot.

Phillip Billing got the penultimate goal in the 76th minute in spectacular fashion, giving Bournemouth a much-needed win. Taking a page out of Beckham’s documentary, the Bournemouth player saw the keeper off the line and after two touches, chipped him from 45 yards out.

The result takes Bournemouth out of the relegation zone and into 17th place, but Burnley is now rooted at 19th.

Burnley face Everton on Wednesday in the League Cup, while Bournemouth play host to Liverpool in the same competition.

Arsenal 5 – 0 Sheffield United

Auston Trusty was trusted to go the distance in the Sheffield United hammering by Arsenal, a result that leaves them in last place.

Arsenal’s cannons were all pointed at the net of Wes Fodderingham, which just proved to be fodder for more goals. Eddie Nketiaih was the hero for the home side, firing in a hat trick with goals in the 28th minute, 50th minute, and 58th minute. 

His first goal was a solid two-touch finish in the center forward position, while his second was a fox-in-the-box finish after an Arsenal corner kick. His third, to seal his hattrick, was an absolute cannon of a shot from the edge of the area.

Fabio Vieira and Takehiro Tomiyasu added additional goals in the 88th minute (penalty) and 96th minute, respectively.

Sheffield turn their attention to Wolves for more Premier League action next weekend.
