The London derby ends 1-1: Zouma responds to Brennan Johnson. The Magpies didn’t take advantage of it, caught again by Calvert-Lewin. Forest’s saving grace

The 31st day of Premier League opens with an evening of draws. Ends The derby between West Ham and Tottenham was 1-1with the Hammers to nullify the network of Johnson (5′): it is Zouma to equalize the score in the 20th minute. He doesn’t take advantage of it Newcastlewhich is stopped from Everton (1-1). No winner either Burnley And Wolverhampton (1-1), rejoices Nottingham Forest: 3-1 al Fulham and +3 on the third to last. He also smiles Bournemouth.


Tottenham did not reach fourth place as they were held to a 1-1 draw by West Ham in the London derby, played at the London Stadium. The match opens with a great chance for Bowen, but after a few seconds the Hammers are at a disadvantage: Werner inspires Brennan Johnson, who only has to push the 1-0 into the net. Porro came close to doubling the score and in the 20th minute, in the most classic of scenarios, West Ham equalised: Bowen inspired and Zouma headed the score to 1-1. The first half ends with a chance for Bentancur, while in the second half Vicario comes into play: the national team goalkeeper stops Michail Antonio twice and helps his team overcome the complicated moment. In the final part of the match Tottenham played better, without managing to score and risking something on the counterattack. The draw satisfies no one: Spurs remain fifth with 57 points, -2 from Aston Villa, Hammers seventh at 45 behind United (48).


The result of the London derby was not exploited by Newcastle, who wasted a sensational opportunity to return to the top-7 of the Premier League: it ended 1-1 against Everton, fifth from last in the table. It starts with forcing the Magpies, who come close to scoring with Barnes and find it in the 15th minute: the winger catches Isak, who skips a defender and scores the 1-0. Longstaff and Murphy came close to doubling their lead in the first half and Newcastle were constantly aiming for an encore: Tarkowski came close to the own goal that would close the game, Burn saw the 2-0 goal canceled out due to offside. The match thus remains open, despite the forcing of the hosts, who suffer the sensational mockery at the end: Dummett tackles Young and it is a penalty, which Calvert-Lewin converts for an equalizer in the 88th minute. The result does not satisfy Newcastle, which remains eighth with 44 points and could be overtaken by Brighton. Everton rises to 26 points, +4 over third-last Luton despite the six-point penalty.


There was also a draw between Burnley and Wolverhampton, and it was the hosts who regretted the result. The Clarets dominate at the start, coming close to scoring with Fofana and Berge, and finding it in the 37th minute: O’Shea finds the unmarked Bruun Larsen, who unlocks it and makes Kompany celebrate. Eleven minutes pass and, in the extra time, the penultimate force of the Premier League completely forgets to defend a set piece. Ait-Nouri took advantage of this to score the 1-1 with a header, also coming close to the winning goal with a similar move at the start of the second half. From here on it’s a monologue for Burnley, but Sà closes his door by saving on Odobert and Benson, while Rodriguez sees the 2-1 canceled out due to an obvious offside. The Clarets thus obtain a point that does not change their ranking, remaining second to last on 19 despite the four matches without defeat and today’s great performance, which gives continuity to the one shown against Chelsea. Chance lost for Wolverhampton, who are ninth (with Brighton) on 42.


Nottingham Forest’s saving grace, which achieved their first victory after being penalized by four points for violations of the Premier League’s Financial Fair Play: 3-1 against Fulham. The match immediately started badly for the Cottagers in the away match at the City Ground: first Gibbs-White set up Hudson-Odoi’s 1-0 (9′) and then Wood caught Leno out of position for the second goal in the 19th minute. Marco Silva gets furious with him and orders a triple substitution on the half hour: Willian, Traoré and Cairney come on. The move does not change the momentum of the match, because just before the break Gibbs-White finalizes a maneuvered action and finds the hat trick. In the second half Adarabioyo, Milan’s target, closes the gap from a corner (49′) and Fulham pushes, hitting two posts and hitting Sels. Forest therefore rejoices, flying +3 over third-last Luton with 25 points. Fulham did poorly, confirming their physical decline and remaining in 13th position with 39 points.


Fourth success in the last five matches for Bournemouth, who got the better of Crystal Palace in a less than spectacular match, which allowed the Cherries to momentarily overtake Chelsea. The home team plays better in the first half, but the big chance belongs to the Eagles, who see their advantage canceled out by an offside from Mateta. In the second half there are no shots until the final twenty minutes, when Solanke and Bournemouth come on. The attacker doesn’t find the net, but Justin Kluivert resolves the match by finalizing a good collective action: the assist comes from Semenyo and closes the game at 1-0 for the Cherries, who also come close to an encore with the former Roma player. Bournemouth thus rises to 41 points and in 11th position, -4 from Europe. A Crystal Palace team that hasn’t turned a corner since Glasner’s arrival stops at 30 and is now +8 in the relegation zone and almost unable to improve on its 14th position.
