Nottingham Forest v Newcastle, Liverpool 3-1 Burnley, and more: football clockwatch – live

Key events

Right, I’ve done my bit. It’s time to hand you over to Taha Hashim for the second half. Go easy.

Over in Germany, Bayer Leverkusen are leading Bayern Munich 1-0 in their Bundesliga title clash while, in Spain, Real Madrid are 2-0 up against Girona. We’ve got minute-by-minute coverage of both games, in case you’d like to triple tab for the rest of the evening.

An email from Chris Paraskevas has just landed. “This first-half Newcastle performance has been a perfect snapshot of our season so far: shoots of promise ultimately undone by shaky foundations.

“I’m sure there will be a Dan Burn witchhunt on social media but how can Newcastle’s entire midfield be caught upfield for that first goal? It makes you pine for the simpler times of the Claude Makélélé era of the holding mid (when the holding midfielder actually, ermmm … held their position and did some actual defending).”

Nottingham Forest 2-2 Newcastle, half-time

Twice Newcastle have led, and twice Forest’s wide men have pegged them back, with both sides scoring excellent goals. Thoughts on that first half?

Goal! Nottingham Forest 2-2 Newcastle (Hudson-Odoi 45+6)

My goodness. Callum Hudson-Odoi races away up the left flank, plays a one-two with Nicolás Domínguez on the edge of the area then scoops a spectacular shot past Dubravka from distance. It’s turning into quite a game, this.

Goal! Nottingham Forest 1-2 Newcastle (Schär 44)

Great finish. Trippier floats in a free kick from distance, Botman heads it across the box and Fabian Schär pops up with a half volley which rockets into the bottom corner. Newcastle lead once more.

Just in case you missed our minute-by-minute, Qatar have won the Asian Cup via a hat-trick of penalties from Akram Afif. Here’s the match report, in case you’d like a read.

Goal! Nottingham Forest 1-1 Newcastle (Elanga 26)

It’s that man Elanga again but, this time, he finds the net. The winger gets between Burn and Sven Botman then slots low beneath Dubravka’s legs. Gibbs-White provided a lovely threaded assist. Game on!

Nottingham Forest 0-1 Newcastle: Another big chance unfulfilled for Forest. Anthony Elanga gets away from Dan Burn and works an angle, but Martin Dubravka makes an excellent save.

Any National League aficionados in the house? There’s a late kick off in the fifth tier, too, with Woking hosting Hartlepool United. The latter have opened the scoring via Joe Grey. Jeff Stelling will be pleased.

Goal! Nottingham Forest 0-1 Newcastle (Guimarães 10)

And just like that, the visitors are ahead. A Newcastle corner is played short to Kieran Trippier, who smashes a cross to the far post and finds Bruno Guimarães who scores an outrageous volley with the outside of his right boot.

Nottingham Forest 0-0 Newcastle: The first big chance of the game falls to Morgan Gibbs-White, who fires wide after being teed up by Nuno Tavares.

We’ve also got a roundup from the Championship, where there were just the 36 goals across 10 fixtures this afternoon.

Hello! They’ve just kicked off at the City Ground but, before we get to the match action, here are our reports from the earlier Premier League games.

My shift is nearly up, but Will Magee will be taking over shortly with coverage of Nottingham Forest v Newcastle.

I’ve had a few emails on Liverpool v Burnley, so I’ll get them all in one update.

Eagle Brosi has pointed out that the Clarets’ defeat means they can no longer mathematically win the league. Tough one to take.

Joe Pearson is surprised: Watching Klopp and Kompany embrace at the end of the Liverpool v Burnley match. Kompany appears to be taller than Klopp! Who knew?

Martin Kerr asks: All four goals in Liverpool v Burnley were headers – when’s the last time that happened?

Sounds like one for the Knowledge. You can email us or tweet @TheKnowledge_GU.

Mad fact, there were no 0-0 draws in any of England’s top five leagues in the 3pm kick-offs. It wasn’t just me then.

Goal! Tottenham 2-1 Brighton (Johnson 90+6)

Full time: Wolves 0-2 Brentford

Late goal in the Phil Parkison derby at the Racecourse, Bradford have got it and look likely to steal all three points against Wrexham.

It’s now 5-3 to Southampton, what a game!

Of course there has been another goal at St Mary’s! Saints now lead 4-3! Sekou Mara scoring from David Brooks assist.
