Cardiff City 0-2 West Ham United

The re-signing of Carlton Cole may have been met with scepticism from some, but the West Ham striker has now scored three goals in his last five matches.

Also, Mark Noble's goal was his first that wasn't a penalty since October 2012.

The loss means that Cardiff have beaten the Hammers just once at home in their last 11 attempts.

His teammate, Kevin Mirallas, has now netted three goals this season, all of which have been converted at Goodison Park.

As for Norwich, they have lost seven of their 11 away encounters this season.

Adam Johnson had not scored a hat-trick in the Premier League prior to this fixture at Craven Cottage.

What's more, he became the first Sunderland player to achieve the feat since Darren Bent did so against Bolton Wanderers in March 2010.

Fulham have conceded 46 goals - more than any other team in the division.

In his last five Premier League matches, Southampton midfielder Adam Lallana has scored two goals and assisted three more for his teammates.

Tottenham Hotspur 2-0 Crystal Palace

Palace's Jason Puncheon's unsuccessful penalty means that he has the unwanted accolade of being the first player to miss the target from 12 yards this season.

Meanwhile, Tottenham's Toronto FC-bound Jermain Defoe scored his first Premier League goal of the season. He has now scored in each of the last 13 campaigns.

He also holds the record of scoring more goals (22) as a substitute than any other player.
