Premier League Results

soccIt was a day of second half goals in the Barclays Premier League this afternoon, with Crystal Palace, Norwich and Arsenal all winning having broken their deadlocks after the break.

Sunderland came from two-nil down at home to Southampton as they securedĀ  point via goals from Fabio Borini and Adam Johnson.

Arsenal retained top spot thanks to a brace from Santi Cazorla. Despite a lacklustre first half, the league leaders managed two quickfire goals to see off the visiting Fulham in a London derby.

Manchester City didn’t have it all their own way at the Etihad, as Cardiff City managed to keep the score down to a respectable four-two. However, a late Frazier Campbell goal proved to be little more than a consolation, as earlier goals from Dzeko, Navas, Toure and Aguero had put the league’s second place side in a comfortable position.

A solitary Jason Puncheon goal was enough for Crystal Palace, as they beat the visiting Stoke City. Tony Pulis’ side have now lifted themselves out of the dropzone with a win against their manager’s former side.

An 87th minute header from Ryan Bennett gave Norwich a much needed win, as they saw off fellow strugglers Hull City one-nil.

More pressure has been heaped upon West Ham boss Sam Allardyce, as his side were beaten three-one by the travelling Newcastle United. A brace from Yohan Cabaye, along with a Loic Remy strike easily saw off a poor showing from the Londeners, who’s only score came via an own goal from Newcastle centre-half Mike Williamson.
