15.48: Half-time: West Brom 2-1 QPR
Half-time: Wigan 2-1 Everton
Half-time: Swansea 0-2 Reading
15.47: Half-time: Chelsea 3-1 Norwich
15.46: GOAL! Swansea 0-2 READING
A scoreline that slightly flatters Reading but take nothing away from the quality of the second strike as Noel Hunt volleys home with just a minute before half-time. Can the Royals hang on in the second-half
15.45: West Brom should restore their two-goal lead! Gera gets into a one-on-one contest with Julio Cesar but the former Inter Milan keeper comes out on top with a fine save to keep out the Hungarian's low strike.
15.44: From OptaJoe:
100 – Pavel Pogrebnyak's goal was Reading's 100th in Premier League history. Centurions.
15.42: West Brom nearly restore their two-goal lead, but Youssouf Mulumbu's effort from the edge of the box is disappointingly off target for the Baggies.
15.39: It's all Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, Oscar pulls out all the skills on the edge of the box before forcing a decent stop from John Ruddy.
15.36: GOAL! West Brom 2-1 QPR
Majestic from Adel Taarabt who is some talent when he can be bothered. After doing excellently to control Esteban Granero's pass on the chest, the playmaker follow sup with a stunning volley past a helpless Ben Foster to pull one back for the Hoops.
Total control: Eden Hazard converts Chelsea's third goal against Norwich
15.34: GOAL! Swansea 0-1 READING
Michel Vorm is normally so reliable for Swansea but not today. The Royals haven't been electric so far but they are in the lead after Pavel Pogrebnyak's strike somehow squeezes through the Dutchman's hands.
15.31: GOAL! CHELSEA 3-1 Norwich
Complacency isn't going to affect Chelsea today. From a cleared corner, Juan Mata picks up the ball on the counter before going on a fantastic run that ends with a sublime pass for Eden Hazard to finish superbly.
15.28: From OptaJoe:
3 – Frank Lampard has scored in each of his three Premier League appearances against Norwich at Stamford Bridge. Expected.
Back in front: Franco Di Santo celebrates after retaking the lead for Wigan
15.25: GOAL! WIGAN 2-1 Everton
Franco Di Santo justifies his inclusion by latching on to Kone's cutback to fire home and retake the lead for the Latics. Nothing wrong with that one – just great play.
15.24: GOAL! CHELSEA 2-1 Norwich
No sweat for the European champions, as Frank Lampard pounces like a predator from the edge of the box to complete the Blues' comeback in very little time.
15.23: GOAL! WEST BROM 2-0 QPR
Anton Ferdinand makes a mess trying to clear James Morrison's cross, allowing Zoltan Gera to bundle home a loose ball and double the hosts' lead.
15.21: The Baggies nearly double their lead over a QPR side chasing shadows so far. This time it's Morrison who feeds Long, with the striker firing over from inside the box.
15.18: From OptaJoe:
6 – Everton have scored more headers than any other team in the Premier League this season. Speciality.
Business as usual: Fernando Torres recovers the ball for Chelsea after equalising against Norwich
15.15: GOAL! CHELSEA 1-1 Norwich
Speaking of all square, normal service is resumed at Stamford Bridge as Fernando Torres doesn't mess up for a second time by nodding home Branislav Ivanovic's cross.
15.13: GOAL! Wigan 1-1 EVERTON
All square again within minutes, as Steven Pienaar's cross is converted by goal machine, Nikica Jelavic. That Latics opener really did wind the Toffees up.
15.12: GOAL! Chelsea 0-1 NORWICH
Anyone see this coming I certainly didn't, but Grant Holt has fired the visitors into a shock lead after latching on to a knockdown from Wes Hoolahan's cross to bury past Petr Cech.
15.11: GOAL! WIGAN 1-0 Everton
Controversy at the DW Stadium. Nothing wrong with Arouna Kone's header from a Shaun Maloney cross to put the Latics ahead…except he looks about a yard offside.
15.09: More teams are using their heads, just not as well, as Swansea's Ashley Williams heads wide from a free-kick against Reading.
Quick out the blocks: West Brom celebrate James Morrison's (right) opening goal against QPR
15.07: GOAL! WEST BROM 1-0 QPR
Excellent play from Shane Long, who makes space on the flank to deliver a superb cross for James Morrison to nod home.
15.04: The question at Stamford Bridge seems to be not if Chelsea will beat Norwich but by how many.
They nearly take an early lead too but Fernando Torres somehow blows a certain chance to score by making a hash of his run in on goal before being tackled by Leon Barnett.
15.01: Away we go folks…
14.58: The players are making their way out across the country. It's a lovely sunny autumnal afternoon across all four grounds.
14.55: From InfostradaLive:
WBA are the only club in all four English leagues yet to concede a goal at home this season
14.52: West Brom striker Peter Odemwingie returns after a three-match suspension in place of injured skipper Chris Brunt for the home Barclays Premier League clash with bottom placed QPR.
Baggies boss Steve Clarke also brings in Gabriel Tamas for injured right-back Billy Jones.
QPR boss Mark Hughes is boosted by the return of defenders Anton Ferdinand and Jose Bosingwa after injury while midfielder Adel Taarabt is handed his first start since the opening day of the season.
Included: John Mikel Obi, Ashley Cole (3) and John Terry feature for Chelsea
14.49: And the full team news from the Hawthorns where the Baggies are aiming to move up to a lofty third against the Premier League's bottom side:
West Brom v QPR
West Brom: Foster, Tamas, McAuley, Olsson, Popov, Yacob, Mulumbu, Gera, Morrison, Odemwingie, Long. Subs: Luke Daniels, Rosenberg, Dorrans, Jara Reyes, Lukaku, Dawson, Fortune.
QPR: Julio Cesar, Bosingwa, Ferdinand, Nelsen, Hill, Granero, Mbia, Wright-Phillips, Taarabt, Park, Zamora. Subs: Green, Traore, Cisse, Mackie, Onuoha, Hoilett, Faurlin.
Referee: Mike Jones (Cheshire)
14.46: The Blues will hope to make it six wins in seven at Stamford Bridge, where they host a Canaries side sitting in the bottom three:
Chelsea v Norwich
Chelsea: Cech, Ivanovic, Luiz, Terry, Cole, Mikel, Lampard, Mata, Oscar, Hazard, Torres. Subs: Turnbull, Romeu, Ramires,
Moses, Cahill, Azpilicueta, Bertrand.
Norwich: Ruddy, Russell Martin, Barnett, Bassong, Garrido, Elliott Bennett, Howson, Hoolahan, Johnson, Tettey, Holt. Subs: Bunn, Turner, Snodgrass, Jackson, Pilkington, Morison, Ryan Bennett.
Referee: Anthony Taylor (Cheshire)
Faith in Franco: Di Santo is included in the Wigan starting XI in place of Jordi Gomez
14.43: Everton boss David Moyes is able to name an unchanged team for his side's trip to the DW Stadium today with Nikica Jelavic looking to build on his double that sunk Southampton at Goodison Park last week.
Depending on results the Toffees could conceivably finish the day at the Barclays Premier League summit but boss David Moyes will be more concerned with gaining three points and maintaining his side's excellent start to the season.
Wigan boss Roberto Martinez makes one change, with Franco Di Santo coming in to replace Jordi Gomez, despite the Spaniard successfully appealing against the red card he was issued at Sunderland last week.
14.40: John Terry and Ashley Cole both start as Chelsea make three changes for today's Barclays Premier League game against Norwich.
Terry returns to captain the European champions and Cole remains at left-back – amid the extraordinary fallout from the former's Football Association racism case – with Eden Hazard and John Mikel Obi also recalled.
Sebastien Bassong returns from injury to start for Norwich, who ring the changes, with Alex Tettey handed his full Premier League debut and Grant Holt, Wes Hoolahan and Elliott Bennett all drafted in.
14.37: It's full-time at the Etihad Stadium, where Manchester City have cruised to a 3-0 win against Sunderland. They move into second place just a point behind Chelsea in the table.
14.34: Everton could go top today if they win at Wigan (and Norwich win at Chelsea), who are eying three points at the DW Stadium to pull away from the bottom three:
Wigan v Everton
Wigan: Al Habsi, Ramis, Caldwell, Figueroa, Boyce, McCarthy, McArthur, Beausejour, Kone, Di Santo, Maloney. Subs: Pollitt, Jones, Watson, Gomez, McManaman, Boselli, Miyaichi.
Everton: Howard, Coleman, Jagielka, Heitinga, Baines, Mirallas, Neville, Osman, Pienaar, Fellaini, Jelavic. Subs: Mucha, Oviedo, Naismith, Distin, Gueye, Anichebe, Duffy.
Referee: Kevin Friend (Leicestershire)
Back in the side: Wayne Routledge (centre) comes into the Swansea team
14.31: Swansea boss Michael Laudrup makes one change to his starting line-up for this afternoon's Barclays Premier League clash with Reading at the Liberty Stadium.
The sole adjustment from last Saturday's 2-0 defeat at Stoke sees Wayne Routledge come into the Swans side for the benched Pablo Hernandez, with skipper Ashley Williams – this week named as the new Wales captain – passed fit to continue in defence.
There is also only one alteration to the Royals' first XI from their 2-2 draw with Newcastle as Jay Tabb replaces the injured Mikele Leigertwood.
14.28: Swansea have gone four games without a win, while the Royals still seek three points. A draw it is then at the Liberty Stadium:
Swansea v Reading
Swansea: Vorm, Rangel, Chico, Williams, Davies, Dyer, Britton, Michu, Ki, Routledge, Graham. Subs: Tremmel, Tate, Hernandez, Shechter, Moore, de Guzman, Tiendalli.
Reading: McCarthy, Shorey, Mariappa, Gorkss, Cummings, McAnuff, Karacan, Tabb, Kebe, Pogrebnyak, Hunt. Subs: Stuart Taylor, Pearce, Le Fondre, McCleary, Robson-Kanu, Guthrie, Roberts.
Referee: Mike Dean (Wirral)
14.25: As ever we have Martin Keown to preview the weekend's Premier League action with his boot room. As well as covering Joe Hart and Andy Carroll, the former Arsenal defender has called on Swansea boss Michael Laudrup to be a little less shy on the touchline.
14.20: Already there is one game going on in the Premier League at the Etihad Stadium, where Manchester City and Sunderland are playing out the last 15 minutes.

14.15: That pesky Europa League has made a mess of our Saturday afternoon again hasn't it It's just the four Premier League games kicking off at 3pm, but we do feature Chelsea, as the European champions take on Norwich at Stamford Bridge.
