Nottingham Forest vs Arsenal the outcome was in favor of home side.
Taiwo Awoniyi‘s goal ended Arsenal’s Premier League title dreams and ensured survival for Nottingham Forest in front of the delighted home fans at the City Ground.

The only goal of the game came after 19 minutes and had a touch of fortune about it.

Martin Odegaard gave the ball away in midfield and Morgan Gibbs-White drove to the edge of the area and pushed a ball through to Awoniyi in the right-hand side of the penalty area and as the striker,

goalkeeper and Gabriel converged on the ball, the defender’s tackle deflected off the Forest No. 9 and the deflection went over Aaron Ramsdale and into the net.

The Gunners did little to suggest they would get back into the game with an early header from Gabriel Jesus and long-range efforts from Jorginho as close as they came to getting level.

Arsenal are now four points behind City with a game remaining, while Forest are seven clear of second-bottom Leicester and four ahead of Everton, who only have one game left.

Liverpool vs Aston Villa the outcome was a bad results for the home side as it ends top four hope.
Roberto Firmino rescued Liverpool in his last-ever home game for the club as the Reds kept their hopes of Champions League qualification alive in a 1-1 Premier League draw with Aston Villa.

Liverpool looked a far cry from a side who had won seven Premier League matches in a row and should have gone behind when Ibrahima Konate upended Ollie Watkins in the penalty area – but Watkins sent the resulting spot kick wide.
Jacob Ramsey made no such mistake when Trent Alexander-Arnold forgot to mark him in the aftermath of a set piece, however, volleying in at the far post to score in back-to-back games.

Villa were disciplined but not without a slice of luck and Tyrone Mings could easily have been sent off when his studs went crashing into the stomach of Cody Gakpo – who was otherwise through on goal – but only a yellow card was produced.

Gakpo thought he had levelled for Liverpool in the second half, but a VAR review deemed compatriot Virgil van Dijk was offside in the build-up to the forward converting from close range.

Yet Firmino scored a goal which did count two minutes from time, acrobatically diverting Mohamed Salah‘s cross into the net.

United continued to push forward in the first half in search of a second goal but on several occasions they couldn’t apply the final touch to a sweeping move.

Bournemouth had a huge chance just two minutes into the second half when David Brooks burst into the box before firing an effort on goal which De Gea was able to tip over for a corner.

Gary O’Neil’s side came close to an equaliser five minutes from time when Kieffer Moore saw his effort from close range saved by De Gea.

Sports / Arsenal Vs Brighton 0-3 Highlights (download Video) by Oladisquare: 7:37pm On May 14, 2023
Arsenal vs Brighton full of attacking from the beginning to the end.

Brighton spoiled Arsenal tittle hope as they thrash them at Emirate Stadium in a 3-0 victory.

The home side were second best throughout and they lost Gabriel Martinelli early on to injury after a nasty challenge from Moses Caicedo, and his replacement Leandro Trossard hit the woodwork against his former club.

Roberto De Zerbi's side created more chances and had more possession, with Julio Enciso spurning two good opportunities while the in-form Evan Ferguson shot wide from close range.

The Seagulls broke the deadlock at the start of the second half when Pervis Estupinan's cross into the ground was headed in by an unmarked Enciso.

Mikel Arteta, who was booked for complaining about a decision, brought on Thomas Partey and Reiss Nelson but it made little difference as their finishing let them down.

And it was a Brighton substitute who sealed victory, with Deniz Undav pouncing on a mistake from Trossard to lob the ball over Aaron Ramsdale.

Estupinan rubbed salt into Arsenal wounds with a third in injury time.

The result means Man City will clinch the Premier League title if they beat struggling Chelsea next Sunday.

Real Madrid finally wore down a belligerent Getafe side, as they stumbled to a 1-0 win in their La Liga clash at the Bernabeu.

Marco Asensio’s deflected strike was enough to settle the tie, although the Deep Blue Ones could count themselves unlucky after a resilient defensive display that looked set to earn them a point.

Indeed, the best opportunities surprisingly fell to Getafe, who saw Nemanja Maksimovic fire just wide within two minutes, while Carles Alena missed the target from Portu’s knock-down.

Chelsea vs Nottingham Forest was tough as both team settle for a 2-2 draw
Chelsea produced yet another below-par performance as Nottingham Forest picked up a crucial point in their survival push with a 2-2 draw at Stamford Bridge.

Both Taiwo Awoniyi and Raheem netted braces at Stamford Bridge, as Forest earned a draw that leaves them three points clear of the bottom three and the Blues stumbled to a result that further emphasises their desperation for the season to to finish.

Edouard Mendy started for the first time since Frank Lampard’s return to the club, and he played a major role in the visitors taking the lead.

A hopeful cross was sent into the box, Mendy came flying off his line, got nowhere near the ball and left his goal unmanned as Awoniyi nodded home.

Chelsea offered very little until a seven-minute spell after the break first got them level and then saw them edge in front.

Trevoh Chalobah got in behind on the right and cut the ball back for Raheem Sterling, who provided the finish with the help of a deflection.

He needed no assistance for his second, as he cut inside after being played through by Ruben Loftus-Cheek and fired a strike beyond Keylor Navas and into the far corner, to raise the prospect of Chelsea winning at home for the first time in Lampard’s second spell in charge.

Within four minutes though, they had been pegged back.

Chelsea half-cleared the danger, but Orel Mangala lobbed the ball back into the box and Awoniyi was once again there to beat Mendy with a header that proved to be enough for Forest fans to leave Stamford Bridge with real belief that they will be back next season.

Man United vs Wolves ended with a 2-0 win in favor of Erik Ten Hang sides

Manchester United secured three vital points in the race for top four with a 2-0 win over Wolves at Old Trafford.

The hosts made the brighter start but lacked any cutting edge in the final third as Jadon Sancho, Bruno Fernandes and Antony Martial struggled to shine.

Antony came closest to opening the scoring after lifting a header over the bar from close range, but he was influential throughout the half and his hard work paid off just before the break.

The Brazilian beat the offside trap, latching on to Fernandes's through ball before squaring for Martial who swept into an empty net.

Erik ten Hag's side remained in control as the visitors allowed the hosts time in possession, with Fernandes and Christian Eriksen waiting patiently for a way through.

As United pressed for a second, Wolves debutant Dan Bentley saved brilliantly from Antony and Sancho to keep his side in the match.

But as his side pushed for an equaliser United countered, and Fernandes' brilliant through ball found substitute Alejandro Garnacho who grabbed an injury-time goal to secure the victory.

With Erling Haaland kept quiet, City’s best chance fell to Rodri who forced a diving save from Thibaut Courtois with a shot from distance, but Pep Guardiola‘s side were limited to half chances throughout.

And against the run of play, Real had the first moment of magic as Vinicius unleashed a thunderbolt from almost 30 yards that flew past Ederson and gave the hosts the lead.

Arsenal kept their Tittle hope alive in a 2-0 victory over Newcastle united .

Newcastle came agonisingly close to breaking the deadlock with just 70 seconds gone, as Jacob Murphy struck the post from inside the area as red shirts backed off and allowed him time and space to get his shot away.

That would not be Arsenal’s biggest reprieve of the first 10 minutes, as a well-worked Newcastle corner routine ended with Bruno Guimaraes‘s effort appearing to strike the arm of Jakub Kiwior, and Chris Kavanagh pointed to the spot without hesitation.

Things went from bad to worse four minutes later when Odegaard fired the visitors in front, before the ex-Real Madrid man came close to a second when his effort was tipped around the post after Gabriel Martinelli’s original effort had been saved.

Newcastle struggled to muster too many efforts on goal, although Aaron Ramsdale did save from Murphy before the break.

Manchester City survived a late Leeds fightback to win 2-1 and go four points clear of Arsenal in the Premier League title race.

Five minutes later Haaland missed a glorious chance to put City 2-0 up with the Norwegian firing wide from point-blank range.

Pep Guardiola’s side doubled their advantage with a goal reminiscent of the first, Mahrez once again found Gundogan with a supremely weighted pass and this time Gundogan rifled his effort into the opposite corner.

Frank Lampard has won his first game since returning as manager of Chelsea by beating Bournemouth 3-1 at the Vitality Stadium.

Conor Gallagher had given the visitors an early lead, but Matias Vina’s excellent strike meant the game was level for much of the afternoon.

With nine minutes on the clock, Gallagher ghosted into the Bournemouth area and met N’Golo Kante’s right-wing cross with his head and beat Neto to give Chelsea the lead.

To illustrate Chelsea’s glaring issues in front of goal, that strike was just the third they had scored in seven games since Lampard took charge.

Chelsea remained lively, with Enzo Fernandez firing over soon after, before Mykhaylo Mudryk was booked for simulation in the penalty area.

Arsenal cruised to victory over Chelsea to keep their Premier League title hopes alive.

With an avalanche of Arsenal pressure in the first half, the Gunners could have been more than the three goals to the good they were at the break.

Hapless Chelsea defending allowed Gabriel Jesus to squeeze a third inside the near post before the break and further humiliation seemed likely for the Blues.

Instead, after withstanding some early pressure, they performed fairly creditably after the break, with Noni Madueke,

reducing the arrears midway through the half, though there was never any belief the visitors would get back into the game.

The win puts Arsenal two points clear of Manchester City at the top of the table, having played two games more.

Chelsea have now lost their last six games in a row in all competitions.

Manchester City have leapfrogged Arsenal at the top of the Premier League table thanks to a hard-fought 2-1 win over Fulham at Craven Cottage.

Strikes from Erling Braut Haaland and Julian Alvarez either side of a Carlos Vinicius response sent the champions back to the summit for the first time since February, although Marco Silva‘s side handed their visitors a couple of scares along the way.

A few Fulham and Arsenal fans may have been hit with a wave of optimism when it emerged that Kevin De Bruyne would miss the contest through injury, but his replacement Alvarez quickly shot down such fanciful hopes.

Within the first 90 seconds, Riyad Mahrez knocked the ball down for Alvarez inside the area, and Tim Ream caught the Argentine with a flailing leg to concede an early penalty.

Up stepped Haaland, and despite Bernd Leno guessing the right way, the City striker picked out the corner for his 50th goal of the season and a historic 34th in the Premier League.

Following a couple of Leno saves from Haaland and Alvarez early in the second half, a lengthy delay ensued after a collision between Pereira and Manuel Akanji – the former came off far worse and had to be stretchered off with his leg encased in protective padding in the 59th minute.

While most of the action remained in Fulham’s half, the Cottagers kept the champions at bay and were denied two penalty appeals, firstly for Ederson scrambling to hook the ball away from Vinicius before Bobby Decordova-Reid went to ground under pressure from Kyle Walker.

As the Craven Cottage crowd became more animated, tempers began to flare, most notably between Grealish and Kenny Tete, who engaged in a brief set-to and were pulled apart by their teammates before each collecting a booking.

Manchester United returned to winning ways with a hard-fought 1-0 win at home to Aston Villa.
The home side, looking to bounce back from blowing a two-goal lead against Tottenham,

were impressive in the first half going forward and their makeshift centre-back pairing of Victor Lindelof and Luke Shaw were not tested enough.

Marcel Sabitzer, who started ahead of Antony, fizzed a shot narrowly over while Casemiro rattled the crossbar from distance.

And their possession was rewarded when Marcus Rashford‘s shot was parried by Emi Martinez and Fernandes bundled in the rebound via a deflection.

Both sides created decent chances in the second half but not enough were on target.
Erik Ten Hag’s side had the better of them with Casemiro shooting wide, Fernandes’ strike was saved by Martinez and Rashford had strong appeals for a penalty when he appeared to be wrestled to the ground by Calum Chambers.

Unai Emery made four substitutions but it yielded little, with the best chance falling to Douglas Luiz whose header was cleared off the line, as United held on to cement fourth position while Villa remain sixth after suffering their first defeat in 10 games.

Inter completed a late comeback to stun Lazio with a pair of Romelu Lukaku assists for Lautaro Martinez and Robin Gosens, getting them into joint fourth with Milan and Roma, as well as setting up Napoli’s Scudetto party.

Mkhitaryan blasted just over from the edge of the area, while Nicolò Barella drilled inches wide, but another Acerbi slip sparked a counter that saw Onana make a desperate one-handed save on Immobile’s curler,

Felipe Anderson’s follow-up deflected over by Alessandro Bastoni. On the resulting corner, Onana smothered the Alessio Romagnoli header.

Danilo Cataldi hobbled off with a bruised ankle, while Barella’s flicked volley sent a Dimarco cross inches past the far post.

Luis Alberto forced a save from Onana after a short corner, while Provedel got down to palm a ferocious Dimarco strike out of the far bottom corner and Denzel Dumfries went for an assist when he should’ve gone for goal.

Lautaro Martinez was running clear on goal only to be stopped by a sensational Nicolò Casale tackle, but Inter did manage to equalise eventually.

Lukaku used his strength to hold off a defender and flick the pass through, so Lautaro Martinez threw himself between two to get his toes to the ball before Provedel and prod in from close range.

Barcelona moved 11 points clear at the top of La Liga with a thumping victory against Real Betis on Saturday.

Real Betis were up against it from the start as Andreas Christensen opened the scoring before even 14 minutes had been played.

Raphinha picked out the Danish defender with a chipped cross towards the back-post, and Christensen duly nodded home into the bottom right corner of the net.

Real Betis‘ task got even more difficult in the 33rd minute when Edgar Gonzalez was shown a red-card.

He made a poor challenge and was shown a second yellow-card which led to his dismissal.

Barcelona made it 2-0 three minutes after the sending-off, as Lewandowski gave himself a two-goal lead over Karim Benzema in the Pichichi standings with a powerful finish from inside the penalty area.

Lewandowski’s snapshot hit the post just before the hour mark, however Guido Rodriguez scored an own-goal eight minutes from time to secure Barcelona’s heavy margin of victory.

Karim Benzema scored a first-half hat-trick as Real Madrid brushed aside Almeria 4-2 and got back to winning ways.

Benzema missed the shock loss to Girona in midweek through injury but needed fewer than five minutes to score today, tapping in after good Vinicius Junior set-up play.

Benzema’s second goal came thanks to an excellent assist from Rodrygo, while the third was a penalty and he sent the goalkeeper the wrong way.

Lazaro pulled a goal back for Almeria on the cusp of the break, but Rodrygo restored the three-goal lead with a vicious strike early in the second half.

Slack Real defending allowed for substitute Lucas Robertone to head in a second Almeria goal, but a comeback was never on the cards.

Benzema hit the post as he went in search of a fourth goal and was joined in that result by Marco Asensio, who was twice denied by the woodwork.

Tottenham came from 2-0 down to earn a credible draw with Manchester United in Ryan Mason’s first game in charge.

Manchester United appeared to be heading for all three points when first-half goals from Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford gave them a comfortable lead at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

Sancho opened the scoring for the Red Devils on seven minutes with a ruthlessly effective feint and finish from the left side of the area.

United then missed a number of chances to extend their lead with Sancho and Marcus Rashford going close before the latter netted his 29th goal of the campaign on the stroke of half time with a show of pace and clinical finishing.

Spurs eventually did show some spirit and reduced the arrears through Pedro Porro’s smart volley following the break.

Rayo Vallecano beat Barcelona, 2-1 with goals from Alvaro Garcia and Fran Garcia to stall Barca’s march to the title.
Rayo’s pressing caused Barcelona problems all night and led to the first goal as Gavi was dispossessed in a vulnerable area.

Sergio Camello unselfishly passed to Alvaro Garcia and his low, well-hit shot was too good for the goalkeeper.

Fran Garcia doubled the lead shortly after the break when his reward for winning a 50-50 with Frenkie de Jong was a clean run at goal and the soon-to-be Real Madrid player cooly found the bottom corner.

Barcelona did pull a goal back in the closing stages when a blocked shot fell into Lewandowski’s path and the Pole instinctively lashed past Dimitrievski, but they never came close to finding an equaliser.

Sports / Inter Milan Vs Juventus 1-0 Video Highlights (download) by Oladisquare: 11:18pm On Apr 26, 2023
Inter Milan remain on course to defend their Coppa Italia title after they reached the final with a 2-1 aggregate win over Juventus, beating their rivals 1-0 on the night.
Federico Dimarco popped up with another big goal to give the hosts a first-half lead at San Siro and it proved decisive in a forgettable Derby d’Italia.

Simone Inzaghi opted to start with Romelu Lukaku on the bench after the Belgium international had his controversial suspension overturned from the first leg,
with Edin Dzeko partnering Lautaro Martinez in attack. Lukaku had scored a stoppage-time penalty to secure a 1-1 draw in Turin.

But it was left wing-back Dimarco who grabbed the game’s opener, his cool toe-poked finish from Nicolo Barella’s ingenious pass in the 15th-minute giving Inter control of the tie.

Joel Matip headed the winner as Liverpool came from behind to claim a 2-1 victory at West Ham and boost their outside hopes of qualifying for next season’s Champions League.
The visitors started brightly but it was the Hammers who stole in front on 12 minutes when the in-form Lucas Paqueta drove in from the left and flashed a fizzing 25-yard strike beyond Alisson.

Liverpool responded and deservedly levelled when Cody Gakpo netted his sixth goal for the club with a bouncing, low shot that flew into the bottom corner.
