While You Were Asleep: Forest-Villa draw 1-1, Liverpool’s Luis Diaz sidelined until December, Dustin Johnson wins inaugural LIV Series championship

Nottingham Forest, bottom of the table, drew 1-1 in the Premier League from visiting Aston Villa. Steve Cooper’s side ended their streak of five straight losses and moved from bottom of the table.

Forest made 22 signings last season but Cooper is still struggling to commit to a starting line-up and he has made five changes from the side who were beaten 4-0 at Leicester last week.

Forest took the lead in the 15th minute when striker Emmanuel Dennis headed in from a Morgan Gibbs-White free-kick. Villa responded with a superb Ashley Young shot from outside the box in the 22nd minute and thought they had taken the lead later in the first half when Ollie Watkins netted the ball, only to be flagged for offside.

On the other hand, Steven Gerrad’s Aston Villa is proving hard to beat but even harder to watch.

Last weekend, Villa drew 0-0 with 10-man Leeds after beating Southampton 1-0 before that.

The tie put Forest in 19th place while Villa stayed in 16th place.

Diaz is out until December with a knee injury

It’s only getting worse for Liverpool. Liverpool have 10 points from eight games and are enjoying their worst start in manager Jurgen Klopp’s seven-year tenure. The injuries to striker Luis Diaz and defender Trent Alexander-Arnold in Sunday’s game against Arsenal had left them in the lurch.

According to the reports, Colombia international Luis Diaz, 25, does not need surgery but is likely to miss 10 games in Liverpool’s busy schedule ahead of the World Cup.

The Reds are hoping to have Diaz back for their visit to Aston Villa on December 26 in their first game since the World Cup.

Diaz has made 12 appearances in all competitions so far this season, scoring four goals with three assists.

Díaz won’t miss the World Cup as Colombia failed to qualify for the Qatar tournament.

Golf: Johnson wins inaugural LIV Golf Individual Championship

Two-time Major Champion Dustin Johnson won the inaugural LIV Golf Individual Championship.

Johnson won $18 million after winning the LIV series singles title with a 16th place finish at the final event in Bangkok, Thailand.

The 38-year-old American shot five under par 67 on Sunday and finished nine under par, giving him an unassailable 42-point lead over South Africa’s Branden Grace.

Johnson has 121 points going into this week’s LIV Golf Invitational-Jeddah event in Saudi Arabia. He’s 42 points clear of Branden Grace, who retired last week through injury. The winner of each event receives 40 points.

Johnson was the most significant player Greg Norman signed for the opposing league. He’s held the No. 1 spot longer than any player since Tiger Woods and had said in February he would stay with the PGA Tour until he changed his mind in June.
