Today's EPL Matches:

Hello and welcome to my LATEST blog post, with 6 EPL matches on show today for all of the football fans all over the world.

Tomorrow, I will be back with an EPL LIVE Coverage of 4 very interesting matches including Liverpool vs Manchester United and Manchester City vs Arsenal.

But here are today's results:

Swansea 0 Everton 3

Everton went back to winning ways, by beating Swansea at The Liberty Stadium by 3 goals to nil.

They unluckily drew against Newcastle on Monday, after two disallowed goals SHOULD have been allowed, meanwhile Swansea lost 2-0 against Aston Villa.

Strikers Victor Anichebe (21st minute) and Kevin Mirallas (43rd minute) made it 2-0 to the away side before half-time. 

Goalscorers: Victor Anichebe and Kevin Mirallas celebrate Mirallas' goal in the 43rd minute.
  Swansea winger (and substitute I might add!) Nathan Dyer was sent off in the 58th minute after two yellow cards.

Off already? Nathan Dyer walks off the pitch after picking up two yellow cards in the space of 12 minutes.

Midfielder Marouane Fellani made it 3-0 in the 82nd minute to end the match.   

3rd goal of the season: Everton midfielder Marouane Fellani heads The Toffees into a comfortable 3-0 lead.

Everton move up to 2nd place, three points away from top spot Chelsea.
Swansea drop down to 9th place with 7 points from 5 matches.

My favourite bloggger Dan will be happy with that result... :)

Here is his football blog website by the way: 

Chelsea 1 Stoke City 0

This match was played at Stamford Bridge, as 1st placed Chelsea hosted a tough Stoke City side after drawing 2-2 against Juventus on Wednesday.

Eye opener: Chelsea midfielder Oscar scored twice against Juventus on his CL debut at Stamford Bridge.
Two goals in two minutes: Oscar shocked everyone by scoring a spectacular 25-yard shot for his second goal.
Promising start: Young midfielder Oscar's two goals were good, but not enough to win the match for Chelsea.

Juventus midfielder Arturo Vidal celebrates his goal against Chelsea during midweek in the Champions League.
Equaliser: Striker Fabio Quagliarella scores against Chelsea in the 80th minute to make it 2-2.

Comeback kings: Italian champions Juventus celebrate coming back from 2 goals down to equalise.

Left-back Ashley Cole scored a late 85th minute winner to win all three points for Chelsea.

Late winner: Chelsea left-back Ashley Cole scores his first goal since 2010 in the 85th minute against Stoke.
Important three points: Ashley Cole breaks Stoke hearts, delivering a fatal blow after 85 minutes.
Jubilation and relief: Cole celebrates his late winner with the Chelsea faithful fans.

Stoke thought they had secured a point, before Cole scored.

Chelsea stay in 1st place with 13 points, three points ahead of 2nd placed Everton. 

Southampton 4 Aston Villa 1 

Southampton beat Aston Villa by 4 goals to 1 at St Mary's Stadium, to give them their first three points of the 2012-13 season.

Initially, the visitors went in-front thanks to striker Darren Bent scoring in the 35th minute with an aerial tap-in. 

Deadlock broken: Aston Villa striker Darren Bent scored in the 35th minute, but they ended up losing 4-1.
If only you knew: Darren Bent celebrates his second goal of the season, but he does not know what is to come.

Striker Rickie Lambert equalised for the home side in the 58th minute, before defender Nathaniel Clyne made up for his poor recent performances with a goal 5 minutes later to give Southampton the lead.

Scrappy: Rickie Lambert equalises in the 58th minute avoiding challenges from defenders along the way.
Back in it: Lambert celebrates his equaliser against Aston Villa.

Long time coming: Nathaniel Clyne beats an Aston Villa defender before scoring his first goal in three years.
Confidence booster: Clyne has taken a bashing over the last few weeks, after a few poor performances.

Hopefully now, Clyne will play better as he has a lot of potential but has not played well against Manchester United and Arsenal.

Jason Puncheon made it 3-1 in the 72nd minute, before Lambert scored his second of the day in the 90th minute to rub salt into the Aston Villa wounds.

Not saving that: Jason Puncheon shoots into the top corner to give Southampton a 3-1 lead in the 72nd minute.

FACT: Nathaniel Clyne's goal today is his first in 3 years.

FACT: Southampton striker Rickie Lambert has now scored 4 goals this season.
This is more than every other player in the EPL apart from Robin van Persie, Michu and Steven Fletcher.

West Bromwich Albion 1 Reading 0

On-loan striker (from Chelsea) Romelu Lukaku scored his 2nd goal for West Brom to give them all three points at The Hawthorns.

Match-winner: Romelu Lukaku scored an important goal for West Brom again, to give them 3 points at home.
2 goals in 5 matches: Lukaku celebrates his winner, meanwhile parent club Chelse are in need of a striker

He scored in the 71st minute, and the win moves West Brom up to 3rd place, joint with Everton in 2nd on 10 points.

West Ham 1 Sunderland 1

This match was played at Upton Park, as West Ham hosted Sunderland.

Striker Steven Fletcher gave the away side the lead after 10 minutes.

Midfielder Kevin Nolan rescues his side in the last minute, with a goal to give the home side a point.
