EPL Sunday 4-Match LIVE Coverage:

4 EPL matches being played today on a nice Sunday afternoon for you all to enjoy:

Norwich City 1 Chelsea 3
The Blues won comfortably away from home against a solid Norwich side who were slow to start and were quickly punished in the 3rd minute after a thumping finish into the bottom corner by Brazillian midfielder Oscar after some defensive frailties at the back.


3rd of the season: Oscar celebrates his goal after just 3 minutes to put Chelsea ahead.

The hosts did well to keep the score at 1-0 at half-time and Pilkington equalised in the 68th minute with an undeserved goal from a van Wolfswinkel flick into the box before a quick-fire double with 5 minutes of the game to play, thanks to wingers Eden Hazard and Willian within 2 minutes of each other sealed the victory for Chelsea. 


Pilkington equalised in the 68th minute for Norwich after getting past the Chelsea defence.
Shock equaliser: Pilkington celebrates his strike against Chelsea to make it 1-1.
Bullet finish: Belgian winger Hazard puts Chelsea back in the lead with 5 minutes to play

Willian celebrates his wonderful strike to cap his first goal in a Chelsea shirt. 
Meanwhile in the other 1.30pm kick-off:

Swansea 0 Southampton 2

Goals from midfielder Adam Lallana and a late finish from striker Jay Rodriguez gave The Saints a vital three points in-front of their home supporteres, which moves them up to 4th place against a side currently playing in the Europa League in Swansea. 

It was an evenly-matched game throughout despite the scoreline between two teams who have European aspirations for the future, but Southampton took their chances at the end of the day, meanwhile Bony and Michu were close but not good enough to beat solid goalkeeper Artur Boruc.


Ahead: Lallana celebrates his finish to give Southampton the lead after 19 minutes.
Over: Jay Rodriguez sealed the points for Southampton with a strike in the 84th minute.

The day's 4pm kick-off's:

Tottenham Hotspur 0 West Ham United 3
This game was played at White Hart Lane, as another London derby took place this time involving Spurs and West Ham. 

West Brom 1 Arsenal 1
Manchester United's conquerors West Brom hosted an in-form Arsenal side who have only lost one game so far this season in the EPL. 

West Brom played well from the start, pressing the Arsenal defence using Sessegnon and Berahino to their advantage on the counter attack looking dangerous. French midfielder Amalfitano looked very good on the ball and troubled Koscielny and Mertesacker at times before defensive midfielder Claudio Yacob scored a shock opener in the 42nd minute header from an Amalfitano cross to give the hosts the lead.

Opener: Yacob converted Amalfitano's cross past Szczesny to give the hosts a 1-0 lead going into half-time.
Arsenal went into half-time feeling hard done by as they failed to convert some of their own goalscoring chances, but Wilshere was picked out as one player who was particularly slacking in terms of passing the ball and attitute towards ball-winning in the midfield areas during the first half.

However he and the entire game completely changed in the second half, with a faster tempo and better overall spectacle for a neutral fan to enjoy. Wilshere scored an deflected equaliser for Arsenal in the 63rd minute, and you could not say that it was not deserved for all of Arsenal's hard work to get back into the game.

Equaliser - Jack Wilshere scored for Arsenal to equalise against West Brom.
