The Premier League was lit up on Tuesday, April 2, 2024, with midweek action which produced stunning results.

Everton ended a run of three premier league losses as the Toffees snatched a point in a 1-1 draw away at Newcastle United denying the Magpies a third home win in a row.

After their impressive comeback win against West Ham over the weekend, Saturday match winner Harvey Barnes almost gave Eddie Howe’s Newcastle the lead inside two minutes but Pickford was equally up to the task.

Sean Dyche was frustrated as Abdoulaye Doucoure failed to punish the Newcastle backline as his shot went inches over the bar.

Alexander Isak who scored a brace and provided an assist against the Hammers over the weekend made no mistake as he dribbled past the Toffees’ defence before slotting the ball past the helpless Pickford.

Everton responded swiftly as they increased the tempo of the game, constantly putting pressure on the Newcastle backline.

it seemed like the Magpies would walk away with all three points until VAR came to the rescue of Everton as Dan Burns’ tap-in was ruled out for offside.

The introduction of James Garner for Everton injected a bit of freshness as the former United academy graduate saw his shot crash off the bar.

Isak and Harvey Barnes combined well as the former saw his efforts cleared off the line by Vitaliy Mykolenko.

Everton’s pressure subsequently paid off as Ashley Young was fouled in the box. Dominic Calvert-Lewin, a second-half replacement, would step up to convert the spot kick.

A chronicle of draws in the Premier League on Tuesday night

The Premier League encounter ended in a 1-1 which saw Sean Dyche’s men move four points clear of the relegation waters, while Newcastle occupy the eighth position on the Premier League log.

West Ham United and Tottenham Hotspur battled to a 1-1 draw, leaving the Hammers unbeaten in the last four meetings at the London Stadium.

Ange Postecoglou got their noses in front early on, as a square place from Timo Werner was superbly met by the legs of Brennan Johnson for an easy tap-in.

Hammers Jarrod Bowen saw his shot deflected behind by Cristian Romero, but It was Kurt Zoma who got the much-needed derby equalizer as he rose highest to meet Bowen’s delivery and knocked the ball into the net with his back.

Destiny Udogie made a brilliant intervention as he smartly blocked Bowen’s shot as Spurs enjoyed the lion’s share of possession but unable to punish Lukasz Fabianski. 

Meanwhile, James Ward Prowse had his swiftly struck free kick brilliantly saved by Tottenham goalie Vicario.

Despite the intense battle at London stadium, both teams shared the spoils

Michail Antonio smashed a shot that was parried away by Vicario. Valdimar Coufal blocked a shot by James Madison.

Destiny Udogie also had a chance to win it at the death but his shot went straight at Lukasz Fabianski. The game ended 1-1, with West Ham winless in their last four matches.

Burnley and Wolves played out a 1-1 draw as Rayan Ait-nouri’s header canceled out Jacob Brunn Larsen’s wonderful strike as Burnley continued their unbeaten run in their last four matches.

Wolves were without frontman Matheus Cunha and had to continue with youngster Leon Chiwome, who had a chance to supplant his predecessor in Fabio Silva as the youngest goal scorer for Wolves but failed to do so.

The Jimmy Floyd’s section was evacuated by fans as reports of a large heavy metal hanging loose from the roof.

Vincent Kompany’s side took the lead through a moment of brilliance by Jacob Brunn Larsen.

Dara O’Shea’s great ball from the right turned out to be an inch-perfect cross for Jacob Brunn Larsen who latched onto the ball, beating Jose Sá in goal for Wolves.

The wanderers were back level as a soft free kick awarded to Ait Nouri, which he converted as he coolly met Pablo Sarabia’s cross with a glancing header past Arijanet Muric in the Burnley goal.

The referee then called the game to a halt for a VAR review which turned out to be nothing. As boos and shouts of “You’re not fit to referee” rang out at Turf Moor.

Burnley remain in the murky waters of relegation with the season nearing it’s conclusion

Due to the victory for relegation battlers Nottingham Forest, Burnley also needed to win, and Jacob Brunn Larsen had glorious chance at the end of the game to give his side all three points, but could only fire Vitinho’s cutback straight at Jose Sá.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s Nottingham Forest took a gigantic leap to Premier League survival as they stunned their visitor Fulham 3-1 – a result which earned the host a second victory on home ground in six matches.

Nottingham Forest raced into a two-goal lead. The early blitz began with Callum Hodson-Odoi dribbling his way into the Fulham box before coolly slotting the ball past Benard Leno.

Nottingham Forest did not take their feet off the gas as they usually do anytime they go into the lead, but instead continued to put pressure on the Fulham goal.

A speculative long-range strike from ex-Newcastle man Chris Wood left Leno bamboozled as the host raced into a 2-0 advantage.

Fulham boss Marco Silva had seen enough as he hauled off three of his underperforming players at the brink of halftime.

This had no effect as Nottingham Forest had their best opening halves of Premier League football as Gibbs-white finished with a plum after being put through on goal by Danilo.

The pendulum did shift at the start of the second half as Fulham got a goal back through a set piece that was guided home by Tosin Adarabioyo.

Nottingham Forest secure crucial win over Fulham

Fulham continued to capitalize on set-piece situations in the second half but could not get another goal as Nottingham Forest secured a 3-1 crucial victory in their quest for premier league survival.

Andoni Iraola Bournemouth put in an impressive performance as they secured a 1-0 victory over Crystal Palace, which marked their third successive Premier League victory.

Bournemouth, who have almost all but certainly secured premier league football for next season, showed a great attacking intent in the opening exchanges.

After soaking up pressure the Eagles had the game’s first clear-cut chance as French forward Jean Philip Mateta fired his shot straight at Neto.

Palace were sloppy in possession as Eberechi Eze delayed his shot which allowed Ilya Zabarnyi to nudge him off the ball, and away from danger.

Dean Henderson was forced into a wonderful save from Philip Billing’s bullet header, but it was Crystal palace who came close as Eberechi Eze saw his close-range finish marginally ruled out for offside.

Glasner would have been pleased with his side’s display in the first half but it was Bournemouth who began the second half impressively as the menacing Dominic Solanke led the attacking threat for his side.

The game looked to be tilting to a draw but substitute Justin Kluivert had other ideas, as Antoine Semenyo did some neat work down the bye-lines before squaring the ball to Justin Kluivert who finished the move from 12 yards out.
