Odion Ighalo took his Barclays Premier League tally to seven as a goal either side of half-time gave Watford their second home win of the season against West Ham.

Slaven Bilic’s high-flying Hammers finished the game with ten men after James Collins’ sending off.

The Super Eagles of Nigeria forward capitalised on errors in the visitors backline to give the Hornets a well-deserved win as the Hammers struggled to reproduce the form that lifted them into the top-four on the log.

Yaya Toure’s late penalty spared the blushes of Joe Hart and secured three points for Manchester City in a narrow 2-1 win over Norwich City at the Etihad Stadium.

Nicolas Otamendi opened the scoring for City in the 67th minute, before Hart’s error allowed Cameron Jerome to tap home with seven minutes to play.

But Russell Martin’s handball on 89 minutes gave Toure the chance from the spot, and the Ivory Coast international made it nine successful penalties out of nine in the Premier League to put City ahead.

Arsenal kept pace with City at the top after going up a gear in the second-half to win 3-0 at Swansea.

The Gunners were second-best in the first period but had a couple of narrow escapes and then took the lead through Oliver Giroud just after half-time.

And the decisive moment of the match came in the 68th minute when Laurent Koscielny turned the ball into a gaping net and the goal was allowed to stand, although the Swansea players were convinced goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski had been fouled.

Joel Campbell then capped a great day for Arsenal four minutes later, lashing the ball into the net to score his first goal for the club on the day he made his first Premier League start.
