Premier League: Norwich 2:2 Swansea
premier league
Luke Moore's second-half goal earned Swansea a 2-2 draw against Norwich at Carrow Road and increased Chris Hughton's team's relegation fears.
Michu converted Jonathan de Guzman's cut-back to give the Swans a deserved lead but despite their continued dominance of possession, the Canaries hit back either side of half-time.

Elliott Bennett's cross was headed in by Robert Snodgrass five minutes after Michu's opener before another Bennett delivery was tucked away by Michael Turner.

Moore bundled home with 15 minutes to play, however, after De Guzman had headed Dwight Tiendalli's cross into the six-yard box to ensure the spoils were shared.

premier league
Arsenal's push for a place in next season's Champions League received a welcome boost on Saturday with a 2-1 win over West Brom.
Clinical strikes either side of half-time from Czech midfielder Tomas Rosicky inspired the Gunners to their third Premier League win a row.

Despite their comfortable lead, Per Mertesacker's 70th-minute sending off and James Morrison's subsequent penalty made for a frantic finish. 

Arsenal managed to hold on, though, and their fifth successive victory at the Hawthorns sees Arsene Wenger's side move into fourth, with Chelsea and Tottenham not due to play until Sunday.
