Nottingham Forest 1-1 Burnley: Premier League – as it happened | Premier League

Key events

That’s me done. Thanks for readings and for your emails and tweets. Until next time!

Ben Fisher’s match report

An email from Colin Wood: “A stupefyingly awful decision to disallow Burnley’s second ‘goal’. In a season already bedevilled by a series of monumentally inept VAR interventions, this surely ranks amongst the worst.”

Vincent Kompany speaks!

On Foster’s red:

It’s a moment of inexperience. Something we can’t really excuse but at the same time he’s played his heart out for the team. We also need to be there for him.

Kompany tries to duck the questions about the disallowed goal.

This is not for me to talk about. I can’t do anything about it now. I don’t really feel anger. I don’t really feel anything.

On Koleosho:

Luca is fearless. His end product will come. He’s 19, he’s got another five years of development. He runs for three people. I need to get him to run smarter.

Both pundits in the Sky studio (Jamie Carragher, Brentford manager Thomas Frank) agree that disallowing Foster’s goal for Berge’s handball was harsh at best.


However it’s applied VAR just takes away the best thing about football. Those few seconds of sheer elation when your team has scored. Chasing that is reason all the miles travelled, money spent and bad times make any sense. If you have to double check yourself what is left?

I’d rather watch and love a sport that is cares more about fun than being forensically correct. There is nothing wrong with human error. It’s a game, for goodness sake, not a science. Let the people celebrate properly.

Nottingham Forest are into the top half with that draw, up to eighth. Burnley, meanwhile, have their first point of the season. On this showing, the Lancashire club have enough quality and vigour to stay up. Red cards and disallowed goals won’t help, though.

Full-time: Nottingham Forest 1-1 Burnley

Burnley will feel slightly aggrieved at having Foster’s goal ruled out.

90+8 min: Cullen picks up a booking for a cynical foul. A good foul, as far as Burnley are concerned.

90+6 min: The game has got scrappy, but that will suit Burnley just fine. Brownhill, save for this set-piece delivery, has been excellent in midfield with Cullen for the visitors.

90+5 min: Roberts was also given a yellow card for dissent after all that.

90+4 min: Foster straight off down the tunnel. Kompany is too busy rearranging his formation to give him a glare, but Foster’s rueful face says it all. He knows what he did. We’ll surely have more than seven added minutes now.

RED CARD! Lyle Foster is sent off. Burnley down to 10!

What a silly, petulant thing to do. There was a big of handbags before Foster gave Yates a sharp elbow to the solar plexus. He’s off! Burnley must survive the last few minutes here, and be without their main striker for the next three games!

90+2 min: A stoppage in play as VAR check for an off-the-ball incident. It looks like Foster has elbowed the chest of Yates! That can surely only mean one thing, a red card!

90 min: Sangare loses the ball inside his own box but McKenna is there to bail him out. The Ivorian has not really been at the races today. Cooper will want more from his record signing in the future.

Seven minutes added on. That’s to account for the injuries, subs and VAR deliberation.

88 min: Cramp comes for Beyer as Burnley scramble to get a replacement on before another Forest set piece. Delcroix finally makes it onto the pitch.

Forest also make a change: Chris Wood on for Awoniyi.

86 min: Berge has been excellent since coming on, operating as a sort of unorthadox right wing. He’s so big, that it’s almost impossible to get the ball off him as he drives to the byline.

A third of the 24 goal scored this weekend have been scored after the 85-minute mark. We may still get a winner.

84 min: Forest are not playing with the same swagger, but are lumping plenty of set pieces into Burnley’s box. The away side have, so far, repelled the aerial threats.

82 min: Burnley sweep forward in a move full of poise and class, but there is nobody on the end of Zaroury’s cross.

GOAL DISALLOWED! The score remains: Nottingham Forest 1-1 Burnley

The VAR deems it to be a deliberate handball. Berge certainly didn’t mean to handle it, in my opinion, but it certainly kissed the forearm of the big Norwegian. That is a proper let off for Forest, and for McKenna in particular who took neither man nor ball and let Berge pass.

GOAL! Nottingham Forest 1-2 Burnley (Foster 77)

Berge beats McKenna to the ball, gets clear of the Forest defence and cuts the ball back to Foster to tap into an empty net. But VAR are going to check this for a handball. It looks like the ball might have glanced Berge’s arm as he ran past McKenna …

76 min: Koleosho comes off! He is replaced by Tresor, who makes his Burnley debut.

75 min: Aina has been magnificent for Forest since switching to right back, so much so that Koleosho has now switched to the right wing.

73 min: The game is there for the taking for both sides. Forest have certainly been the stronger in the last 20 but both side carry a fresh threat with those subs.

70 min: Forest make changes: Hudson-Odoi and Mangala off for Origi and Yaes.

I should have told you about some Burnley changes a few minutes ago: Berge and Zaroury on for Gudmundsson and Amdouni.

67 min: “What a well taken goal by Hudson-Odoi,” emails Kári Tulinius. “A penny for the thoughts of Pochettino. He could use someone with his shooting ability.”

It does seem an absolutely mad fee to sell Hudson-Odoi for. He’s not been in great form, sure, but he’s 22! We all know how talented the boy is.

65 min: Forest are cooking on gas now. Hudson-Odoi cuts in from the left, slips a pass through to Gibbs-White, who finds a pocket of space inside the box, smashes his shot goalwards. It hits Cullen on the arm, but there’s no way that should be a penalty. Not given, rightfully so.

63 min: VAR checks for both offside and handball against Awoniyi in the build-up, but the goal stands! There’s no doubt that losing Brennan Johnson was a blow, even for £47m, but not bad business replacing him with Hudson-Odoi for £5m.

GOAL! Nottingham Forest 1-1 Burnley (Hudson-Odoi 61)

WHAT. A. GOAL. Hudson-Odoi picks the ball up on the edge, and curls the most beautiful shot in off the far post! Right in the top corner, postage-stamp stuff. Wow.

59 min: Aina 1-0 Koleosho. The Forest man wins his first duel against the Burnley winger, tackling cleanly before winning a free kick for the home side.

57 min: Better from Forest, who are applying pressure without creating clear-cut chances. Cullen is doing an excellent job of firefighting around Burnley’s box, snarling and blocking and tackling his side out of trouble.

55 min: Chance for Mangala! From a Forest corner, the ball falls to the Belgian but he can’t fetch it from under his feet and the shot is scooped over.

53 min: Montiel is hooked! That’s a sensible call from Steve Cooper. Aina will to go right back, Tavares comes on at left back. Montiel gets a decent reception as he jogs back to the bench but the Argentinian was run ragged by Koleosho. Let’s see if Aina can do any better.

50 min: Koleosho continues to embarrass Montiel, who is surely close to being hooked. Koleosho sends the World Cup winner to the shops before cutting back to Amdouni, but the Swiss forward’s shot is blocked.

48 min: Not the first time Burnley have had a lead in the Premier League this season, but their early advantage at Spurs didn’t last long. Twelve minutes to be exact, before Son Heung-min scored the first goal of his hat-trick as Tottenham romped to a 5-2 win. Burnley look a lot more composed here. They are calmly keeping possession and Forest are getting sucked in to challenges they shouldn’t be making.


We’re underway again. Stuart Broad, a Nottingham boy of course, and Jimmy Anderson were on the pitch at half-time, waving and smiling etc. Why not.
