[[LIVE SPORT-]] Wolves vs CPFC live 25 April 2023
15:21 18' Brentford and Villa competing hard (0-0) With all the action elsewhere we have barely had chance to mention Brentford's clash with Villa. Both sides have had chances but neither have been able to take them. End-to-end action is creating openings in defences and you just feel that the first goal will be pivotal in this one. 15:15 13' GOAL WOLVES (0-1) Oh no this isn't what Leicester fans would have been hoping for and they concede largely through their own fault as the Fxoes try to play out from the back and get it all wrong.
Matheus Cunha nicks the ball of Tieleamans and moves into space as he smashes it into the back of the net. The visitors lead and Leicester fans will be watching the rest of this match biting their fingernails. 15:13 8' Nottingham Forest defending for their lives (0-0) Forest will have been expecting a tough day at Anfield and are struggling in the early exchanges with Mo Salah seeing his effort blocked behind for a corner.
16:17 55' GOAL LIVERPOOL (2-1) It's Jota again who makes Nottingham Forest's defence look like a pub team as a ball over the top see's the Portuguese control it in the box, turn and finish into the bottom corner. No Forest defender looked to close the space or put a challenge in and that is the type of defending that relegates teams. Steve Cooper is furious in the dugout and rightly so. 16:15 52' Emiliano Martinez comes off at Brentford (0-0) The Argentinian didn't make his way back onto the pitch at half-time and is replaced by reserve goalkeeper Robin Olsen. We presume that must be an injury to Martinez and if you're Brentford then you would pepper the goal throughout the second-half.
His effort is heading in but Sa moves his feet well to get across his goal and stretch to deny the Leicester striker. 15:48 45' How are Everton getting on? (0-0) This has been a really underwhelming display from Everton so far at Selhurst Park. They just can't seem to pose any type of significant threat and Crystal Palace look comfortable without doing much themselves. Everton are playing for their Premier League future, on this display so far you wouldn't think that was the case.
Former Real Madrid and PSG goalkeeper Keylor Navas stands firm to tip the ball over the bar and out for a corner. Great save. 15:23 19' Eze wasteful in front of goal (0-0) Eberechi Eze has to do better as a ball over the top should put him in a one-v-one with Jordan Pickford. The Palace attacker has been in great form this season but miscontrols the simple pass and the chance goes begging. Palace on top.
What a game! 16:30 67' GOAL NOTTINGHAM FOREST (2-2) The visitors are back in it again and the goals are flying in around the Premier League now. Morgan Gibbs-White has been really energetic throughout the second-half and gets his reward after pouncing on Van Dijk's header into an open space. Great finish from 16 yards out. 16:28 65' GOAL BRENTFORD (1-0) Toney finds the back of the net and we have lift-off in London as Brentford take the lead against European hopefuls Aston Villa. It's a great finish from Toney who smashes home a half-volley from close-range. 16:26 63' Costa fumes as he is brought off (1-1) Diego Costa is not happy as he is subbed off by Julen Lopetegui who opts for fresher legs in the closing periods of play at the King Power.
Everton still remain just above the drop solely by goal difference and really could do with three points against Palace today to give themselves breathing space. If Forest or Leicester win and EVerton draw then the Blues will drop into the relegation zone as will Leeds. 15:52 HALF-TIME: Scores around the grounds Leicester 1-1 Wolverhampton Liverpool 0-0 Nottingham Forest Brentford 0-0 Aston Villa 15:51 45+3' Leicester pushing late on (1-1) That goal has given the hosts hope and they look an entirely different outfit as Iheanacho burst forward and tries to find the top corner from the edge of the box.
