Play had to be stopped for several minutes during Everton’s home defeat against Wolves on Saturday when an encroacher of the feline persuasion came pottering out onto the Goodison pitch.

Those watching BBC’s Final Score were treated to full commentary from reporter John Acres, who poetically described the black cat’s movement across the field…

After a brief cameo, the cat was ushered off and play was allowed to continue, with Wolves cantering to a 3-1 victory.

Asked about the stoppage after the game, Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo admitted that the little interloper put him on edge:

Where I come from in Portugal, the black cat is bad luck so I never want to see cats again. I don’t like black cats.

He never want to see cats again.

Another perfectly normal quote to come from on another perfectly normal weekend in the perfectly normal Premier League.
