Osaze Odemwingie

Nigerian striker, Osaze Odemwigie, featured in a Premier League match for the first time since September 2015 as Stoke City continued their fine run with a 3-1 win over Norwich City on Wednesday night at the Britannia stadium.

Odemwingie came in as a 56th minute substitute for Borjan, and while the Nigerian star did not score any of the goals, his contributions were appreciable.

Three second-half goals saw Stoke City get the better of 10-man Norwich City at their home ground.

The star-fixture for these round of games lived to its billing as Liverpool and Arsenal played out a 3-3 draw

At Stamford Bridge, Nigerian midfielder, John Obi Mikel, played all 90 minutes as Chelsea stutter at home as their tie ended 2-2 against West Brom.

James McClean struck late on to earn a share of the spoils for West Bromwich Albion in a 2-2 draw against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

There were no goals celebration for Odion Ighalo on Wednesday as his team Watford were handed a 2-0 defeat by South Hampton.

Manchester City on their part failed to secure the needed home win that could have seen them closing up with teams ahead of them on the Premier League standings

The Citizens, despite the myriad of chances they created, saw their match end in a barren draw against a resolute Everton side

Chelsea 2 – 2 West Bromwich Albion

Manchester City 0 – 0 Everton

FT Southampton 2 – 0 Watford

Stoke City 3 – 1 Norwich City

Swansea City 2 – 4 Sunderland

Liverpool 3 – 3 Arsenal

Tottenham Hotspur 0 – 1 Leicester City
