VAR! West Ham 1-0 Brighton

Premier League: West Ham’s second “goal” is choked off and to be completely honest, I’m not really sure why. It’s either a foul by Craig Dawson, an offside ... or something else. I’m going with an offside shout against Michail Antonio.

Midweek clockwatch ...

You join us for the second and busiest of three consecutive nights of midweek Premier League action, with six matches scheduled for this evening. The Merseyside derby is probably the pick of them on paper, with a hideously out-of-form Everton, without a win since September, hosting Liverpool at Goodison Park.

Scott Murray will be keeping his beady eye on that one in a dedicated minute-by-minute report but we’ll keep you posted with any goal updates, while maintaining a more roving brief around the grounds staging tonight’s other games.

We’ll bring you news of all the major talking points, post-match reaction as well as on-the-whistle reports on what promises to be a lively evening’s football action.
