Spurs equalize at 10-man Southampton, West Ham ahead of Watford

6

The festive football continues to roll on, folks. It’s time for matchday 20 in the Premier League!

After a bit of Christmas shopping on Monday and the banking weekend Newcastle and Man Utd served on Monday, we are back at it again.

Here are your live updates for Tuesday’s matches.

Norwich face an uphill battle in the match with Crystal Palace after going into the break with 3-0 down.

Their hopes of scoring at Selhurst Park were met with an immediate blow when Odsonne Edouard made a penalty in the eighth minute.

Kenny McLean clumsily knocked down Will Hughes, and the Frenchman coolly converted from the spot.

Things went from bad to worse for Dean Smith’s team when they conceded another goal just before the break, with Jean-Philippe Mateta just scoring his second goal in the Palace colors.

Jeff Schlupp added a third moment later to exacerbate Norwich’s misery. It’s going to be a long old trip back to Norfolk …

Tottenham have 45 minutes to count their one-man advantage after Mohammed Salisu’s red card.

Southampton took a well-deserved lead in the middle of the first half through club captain James Ward-Prowse.

A loose ball fell on the English national team man and he curled it beautifully in the far corner with the outside of his boot.

But Spurs – who rarely threatened in the first half – got a way back into the game when Mohammed Salisu foolishly tripped Son Heung-min in the penalty area and got his second yellow card before Harry Kane shot home from the penalty spot.

Watford have returned to the Premier League after their last three matches were suspended due to a Covid-19 outburst, and made the best possible start when Emmanuel Dennis kicked them in front in the first five minutes.

The Nigeria international – who will be greatly missed by the Hornets while he is at the Africa Cup of Nations next month – found the top corner with a fantastic chance.

But West Ham equalized halfway through the opening 45 through Tomas Soucek, before Said Benrahma put them in the lead just moments later.

Whatever David Moyes said to his side at half-time had the desired effect when Jarrod Bowen found the nets shortly after the break, but a VAR check ruled out his goal.

Brendan Rodgers welcomes former team Liverpool to King Power Stadium in Tuesday’s late kick-off, aiming to avenge their Carabao Cup defeat at Anfield six days ago.

The Foxes made almost a memorable comeback on the second day at Man City, and responded three times after going into the half with 4-0 under.

Liverpool return to action after their Boxing Day meeting with Leeds was interrupted and, like City, they were able to do with three points against Leicester when the title race heats up.
