Two of three Premier League matches just hit the half, while Arsenal begins a quest to supply a big second half upset in moments on NBCSN.

Here’s what’s cooking in the trio of PL offerings this fine Tuesday.

Bournemouth 2-0 ArsenalSTREAM

Charlie Daniels gave the hosts a shock lead, and Granit Xhaka gave away a penalty that Callum Wilson converted to make it two. Arsenal’s January run includes Bournemouth, Swansea, Watford, and Burnley, and hopeful Gunners won’t be buoyed by the slow start.

Crystal Palace 0-1 Swansea City STREAM

The most recent clubs to swap out managers are meeting at Selhurst Park, and Swans controlled the ball in the early stages. Alfie Mawson headed Gylfi Sigurdsson‘s free kick behind Wayne Hennessey to give Swans a lead with new manager Paul Clement watching from the stands.

Stoke City 1-0 Watford — STREAM

Weeks ago, you wouldn’t have thought this a relegation six-pointer, but it’s being played like one at the Britannia Stadium. Ryan Shawcross turned a corner past Heurelho Gomes in the waning moments of first half stoppage for the lone goal.
