16.15: GOAL! Swansea 4-3 WOLVES
16.13: GOAL! SUNDERLAND 2-1 Bolton
16.10: Swansea are back on the attack. Gylfi Sigurdsson hits the post for the hosts before forcing a 20-yard save from De Vries moments later.
16.07: West Brom have been denied a stonewall penalty! It's a fantastic save from Alan Hutton, who sticks out his arm to deflect Liam Ridgewell's header over. But last time I checked. outfield players were not allowed to handle the ball.
The Villa full-back somehow only gets away with conceding a corner. I don't know how referee Mark Clattenburg has missed that.
16.04: The second halves are up and running again, as are my blister ravaged fingers.
15.59: From InfostradaLive – one to keep an eye on:
The most goals scored on a single day in the division this season is 31 – set on October 29, 2011.
15.55: From InfostradaLive:
We had 17 first half goals – breaking #EPL season record. PL record for most 1st half goals on a single day is 21 – set on October 3, 1992.
Four-midable: Franco Di Santo (9) celebrates his long range effort that put Wigan into a 4-0 lead
15.52: Half-time: Wigan 4-0 Newcastle
15.51: Half-time: Swansea 4-2 Wolves
15.50: GOAL! WIGAN 4-0 Newcastle
It's half-time and we still have goals flying in! Franco Di Santo hits an absolute belter from 25 yards into the top corner and this is doing Wigan's goal difference wonders down at the bottom.
15.49: Half-time: Everton 3-0 Fulham
15.47: Half-time: Stoke 1-1 Arsenal
Half-time: Sunderland 1-1 Bolton
Half-time: West Brom 0-0 Aston Villa
15.46: But there is one fixture not playing along. It's still 0-0 at West Brom but Gabriel Agbonlahor has wasted two great chances to put the visitors ahead.
15.44: From InfostradaLive:
There have been 15 first half goals so far – equalling the PL record this season, previously set on November 19.
15.41: GOAL! EVERTON 3-0 Fulham
Speaking of confidence, Steven Pienaar is a changed player since rejoining Everton.
The midfielder plays in Nikica Jelavic, who manages to squeeze a finish past Mark Schwarzer for his second goal of the day.
15.38: GOAL! WIGAN 3-0 Newcastle
Just as the Toon were starting to wake up, the Latics pounce again. Franco Di Santo threads through Shaun Maloney who neatly finishes past Tim Krul. I don't think I have ever seen Roberto Martinez's side this confident.
15.37: GOAL! SUNDERLAND 1-1 Bolton
A first goal in five games for the Black Cats and it comes courtesy of Nicklas Bendtner, who picks up a Jack Colback pass before firing low past Adam Bogdan.
Goals galore: Danny Graham quickly restored Swansea's three-goal advantage against Wolves
15.34: GOAL! Swansea 4-2 WOLVES
This is getting ridiculous. We've gone goals crazy! Matt Jarvis once again restores hope for the visitors with a sweet strike.
15.31: GOAL! SWANSEA 4-1 Wolves
Erm, well there goes the comeback. Danny Graham immediately restores the three-goal advantage by firing into the corner.
15.28: GOAL! Swansea 3-1 WOLVES
Now this would be the most unlikeliest of comebacks but at least the visiting fans have something to cheer.
Steven Fletcher raises hopes with a looping header from 10 yards.
Breakthrough: Kevin Davies (right) opened the scoring for Bolton at Sunderland
15.25: GOAL! Sunderland 0-1 BOLTON
We haven't seen enough of this Kevin Davies this term, but now is the time to hit form.
The striker fires in a volley from a Martin Petrov cross to really up the pressure on QPR, Blackburn, Wigan and Aston Villa.
15.21: Orlandi's goal after 24 seconds is the quickest of the season by the way…and seemed to set everyone else off. Nine goals in the opening 18 minutes!
15.18: GOAL! SWANSEA 3-0 Wolves
More players using their heads as Nathan Dyer nods home from close range following a decent run from Orlandi. You have to fear for Wolves here.
15.17: GOAL! EVERTON 2-0 Fulham
The hosts go close to a second when Jelavic hits the post, but it only takes a minute before they have another chance as Marouane Fellaini heads home from a corner.
15.16: GOAL! WIGAN 2-0 Newcastle
The Latics are flying and so is Victor Moses who curls a first-time finish into the bottom corner. Newcastle all at sea.
Top Gunner: Robin van Persie nets Arsenal's equaliser at Stoke
15.15: GOAL! Stoke 1-1 ARSENAL
The Gunners are back on levels terms and probably deservedly after Robin van Persie returns to top form by converting Tomas Rosicky's cross.
15.14: GOAL! WIGAN 1-0 Newcastle
And another crucial goal at the top and bottom of the table. Maynor Figueroa's cross picks out Victor Moses who nods the Latics ahead.
15.12: GOAL! STOKE 1-0 Arsenal
It's against the run of play this but it throws the cat amongst the Champions League pigeons.
The ex-Tottenham boys of Matthew Etherington and Peter Crouch combine, with the latter heading in a cross to put the Potters ahead.
Spot on: Nikica Jelavic fired Everton ahead with a penalty
15.09: GOAL! EVERTON 1-0 Fulham
Pavel Pogrebnyak raises his arm to block a Nikica Jelavic free-kick, giving away a penalty.
The striker then makes no mistake from the spot to hand the Toffees the lead – not a surprise to many inside the ground, just check out the Cottagers record at Goodison Park.
15.06: GOAL! SWANSEA 2-0 Wolves
Everyone is going to be playing 3-4-3 at this rate. The Jacks are running riot but have a slice of fortune after Joe Allen's shot deflects off Christophe Berra and past Dorus De Vries.
15.04: GOAL! SWANSEA 1-0 Wolves
How about that then. Andrea Orlandi is back with a bang, scoring his first goal for two years by glancing home Scott Sinclair's cross with his head. Wolves haven't even touched the ball.
15.03: Away we go then.
15.00: Well done those of you with eagle eyes out there. Carlos Vela is of course not on the Arsenal bench – it should now say Andre Santos. Sorry for that folks.
14.58: With the sides making their way out, here is Andy Townsend's Boot Room displaying his preview on the weekend's games.
14.56: Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger makes two changes from the side that drew with Chelsea last weekend for this afternoon's Barclays Premier League clash with Stoke at the Britannia Stadium.
Yossi Benayoun, ineligible against his parent club, and Gervinho come in for the injured Theo Walcott and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who drop to the bench.
The Stoke line-up also shows two changes from their loss to Newcastle, with Jermaine Pennant, now fully recovered from a virus, and Dean Whitehead replacing the injured Andy Wilkinson and Wilson Palacios.
14.54: Swansea manager Brendan Rodgers switches to a 3-4-3 formation for the visit of relegated Wolves to the Liberty Stadium after full-backs Neil Taylor and Angel Rangel were hit by hamstring problems.
Taylor is named on the bench while Rangel is left out altogether, with club captain Garry Monk coming into a back three alongside Steven Caulker and Ashley Williams.
Andrea Orlandi makes a first start since January in midfield.
Wolves boss Terry Connor brings Christophe Berra into his back four with Sebastien Bassong (hamstring) out injured.
Kevin Doyle starts alongside Steven Fletcher in attack with Dorus de Vries continuing in goal against his former club.
Return: Richard Dunne (right) starts for Aston Villa
14.52: Fulham caretaker bosses Billy McKinlay and Michael Lindeman make one change, with Kerim Frei coming in for Danny Murphy.
Everton manager David Moyes keeps faith with the same team which drew 4-4 at Manchester United.
14.50: Aston Villa defender Richard Dunne returns after a two-and-a-half month absence with a broken collarbone for the Barclays Premier League derby at West Brom.
Vice-captain Dunne takes over as skipper from striker Gabriel Agbonlahor in the absence of Stiliyan Petrov while he has treatment for acute leukaemia.
Dunne replaces Nathan Baker and Villa manager Alex McLeish makes two other changes with midfielder Ciaran Clark and Agbonlahor, who has recovered from a shoulder problem, replacing Marc Albrighton and Andreas Weimann respectively.
Baggies head coach Roy Hodgson keeps faith with the side which won 1-0 at Liverpool last weekend.
14.48: Newcastle boss Alan Pardew names an unchanged side as the Magpies look to nudge a step closer to Champions League football next season with victory over relegation-threatened Wigan at the DW Stadium.
Pardew's men start the day in fourth place in the Barclays Premier League, two points ahead of fifth placed Tottenham, but know even fourth will not be enough if Chelsea win next month's Champions League final.
With the Latics hovering just one point above the drop zone, boss Roberto Martinez makes one change, handing Shaun Maloney his first start since his famous winner against Manchester United earlier this month, with Jordi Gomez dropping to the bench.
14.46: Craig Gordon is handed his first appearance of the season as Sunderland attempt to plunge Bolton deeper into relegation trouble.
The Scotland international starts in place of Simon Mignolet after fighting his way back from a knee injury, while skipper Lee Cattermole and striker Fraizer Campbell replace the suspended Craig Gardner and the injured Sebastian Larsson.
Bolton captain Kevin Davies also wins a recall with he and Dedryck Boyata coming in for Ryo Miyaichi and Gretar Steinsson.
14.44: And a change in the dugout too. Fulham boss Martin Jol hasn't traveled with his squad to Merseyside due to illness, so Billy McKinlay and Michael Lindeman will be in charge.
14.42: Slight change to the line-ups at Goodison Park, Damien Duff starts in place of Marcel Gecov.
Back between the sticks: Craig Gordon starts in goal for Sunderland

14.22: In fact it's all over at St Mary's, where Southampton have thumped Coventry 4-0.
That result means they will join Reading in the Premier League next season, so congratulations to them.
14.18: But before we get into that, you can catch the dying moments of the final games of the Championship season here with Tom Bellwood.
14.15: Six of the best may be stretching it a bit considering the biggest game of the season is on Monday, but with the Premier League campaign on the home straight there are plenty of i's to dot and t's to cross, so let's get some team news.
Taking its toll: Robin Van Persie has scored just once in seven games for Arsenal
