Premier League half time update: Saints flying, Chelsea fight back


On Saturday there are eight Premier League games on an incredibly busy day of action.

Following Manchester City and Arsenal’s 2-2 draw in the early match, six more games kicked off at 10 a.m. ET. At half time of those matches there is plenty more drama.


Here is an update on what’s going on around the league at half time of those games.

Chelsea 1-1 Swansea City

The Swans took an early lead via a John Terry own goal but Diego Costa equalized right on half time to set things up beautifully.

Crystal Palace 0-0 Burnley 

Stalemate at Selhurst so far but Wilfried Zaha has come the closest to scoring.

Southampton 2-0 Newcastle

Saints are absolutely flying as they went 2-0 up inside the first 20 minutes at St. Mary’s. Graziano Pelle scored both as the pressure is mounting on Alan Pardew as Newcastle boss.

Stoke City 0-0 Leicester City

The Potters should be ahead as Peter Crouch has peppered the Leicester goal. However, he has yet to hit the target as the Foxes are still alive.

Sunderland 1-1 Tottenham Hotspur

Nacet Chadli puts Spurs ahead but Adam Johnson equalized for Sunderland in a fast-paced game in the North East.

West Bromwich Albion 0-1 Everton 

Romelu Lukaku scored against his old team to put the Toffees 1-0 up at the Hawthorns.
