NORWICH, England -- Substitutes Eden Hazard and Willian scored inside two second-half minutes to steer Chelsea to a 3-1 victory at Norwich in the Premier League on Sunday. Sal Zizzo Red Bulls Jersey . Oscar was the first of the three Chelsea midfielders to find the net at Carrow Road in the 4th minute. After Anthony Pilkington headed Norwich level in the 68th, Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho brought on Hazard and Willian off the bench. Chelseas lead was restored in the 85th after Norwich conceded possession from its corner and the visitors launched a blistering counterattack. After Alex Tetty failed to clear the ball, Hazard took advantage and unleashed a shot that squirmed under goalkeeper John Ruddy. Willian was on target in the 86th on his Premier League debut with a curling strike into the top corner. The victory keeps Chelsea in the top four with 14 points from seven games. Chelsea might have had a penalty in the opening minutes of the game, but referee Neil Swarbrick raised no objections when Ba went down softly between Sebastien Bassong and Michael Turner. It didnt matter as Chelsea soon led through Oscar, who began in the play-maker role behind Demba Ba, with Juan Mata on the right. Frank Lampards pass from inside his own half was brought down by Ba inside the Norwich box and the striker, with Turner backing off, laid the ball off for Oscar to hit it first time with the outside of his right boot into the bottom corner. It was a fine goal, but Norwich made it all too easy for the visitors. Mata was then granted space to pick his pass after drifting inside and found Ba, whose effort was well saved by Ruddy. The Norwich goalkeeper lost an aerial duel with Ba, who turned and shot only for Bassong to block. Norwich enjoyed some openings down Chelseas right, with Martin Olsson and Leroy Fers pace troublesome, but it was from down their own right flank that they nearly equalized when Ricky van Wolfswinkels cross was prodded wide by Jonny Howson. Ruddy recovered to concede a corner after Ba won another aerial challenge with Turner and the goalkeeper before Norwich pressed again without testing Petr Cech. David Luiz had Ruddy back-pedalling with a shot from a yard inside Norwichs half as the ball landed on the roof of the net. Cech was called into action for the first time when Bassong shot straight at him from a corner as the half came to a close with Chelsea dominating without adding to Oscars early effort. The visitors so nearly made a flying start to the second half as Andre Schurrle and Ramires combined down the left and the latter crossed for Ba. With just Ruddy to beat, Ba failed to cleanly connect and the ball went wide. Ramires was soon in action at the other end, dispossessing Pilkington, who went down, but Swarbrick was unmoved as the hosts appealed for a penalty. Chelsea captain John Terry got in ahead of Van Wolfswinkel and then blocked from Pilkington as Norwich threatened again before equalizing. Martin Olssons deep cross from the left created havoc and found Van Wolfswinkel. The Netherlands striker met the ball at the back post and centred for Pilkington, who got on the wrong side of Luiz and headed past Cech. Ashley Coles departure through an apparent injury forced a change in tactics for Chelsea, who threw players forward. Right back Branislav Ivanovic, popping up on the left, forced a save from Ruddy and then Eden Hazard, Coles replacement, fired narrowly wide. Norwich had chances, too. Nathan Redmond, on for Snodgrass, had an effort saved by Cech before Olsson lost his balance in the act of shooting. Redmond was lively and won a corner with five minutes remaining, but it led to a goal for Chelsea. The Blues broke and Tettey was unable to deal with Oscars cross-field pass, allowing Hazard to pounce. The Belgium forwards shot squirmed under Ruddy, who could only scramble forlornly as the ball went over the line. A minute later, Ruddy could do nothing as Willian put a gloss on proceedings with his first Chelsea goal. Amadou Dia Sporting Kansas City Jersey . This should be celebrated because it will not always be this way. With the amount of money given to players by their clubs these days, it is a wonder that so many of those teams allow the sport to continue to take away many of their assets so they can play for a different team in the middle of their season. Federico Fazio Jersey . The 29-year-old Baines has established himself as one of the top attacking full backs in the country and was the subject of two bids from United during the last off-season. Everton manager Roberto Martinez says that keeping Baines at the club is a "massive boost and exciting for the future" because he brings "maturity and football knowledge in a very specialized position on the pitch" and an "infectious and positive influence to the rest of the squad. http:///.../Tom-Carroll-Jersey/ . The scientists believe the small earthquake during a Marshawn Lynch touchdown was likely greater than Lynchs famous "beast quake" touchdown run three years ago, which also came against New Orleans during a playoff game. MANCHESTER, England -- Manchester City delivered a devastating attacking display to humble Tottenham 6-0 on Sunday, sending a warning to its title rivals by condemning Spurs to their joint heaviest Premier League defeat in 17 years. Jesus Navas bookended yet another huge home win for City by scoring after 14 seconds and again in second-half stoppage time, with Sergio Aguero also netting in each half to add to an own goal by Sandro and a brilliant strike by Alvaro Negredo. "We have to be ashamed of a result like this," Spurs manager Andre Villas-Boas said. "To lose 6-0 is extremely embarrassing." City, which stayed six points behind leader Arsenal after 12 games, was 5-0 ahead after 56 minutes and has now scored 18 goals in its last three home games in all competitions. If Manuel Pellegrinis side can sort out its dreadful away form, it will surely be favourite to land a second league title in three years. "It is impossible to play better than we did today," Pellegrini said. Tottenham is languishing in ninth place despite spending more than 100 million pounds (now $160 million) on mostly attacking talent in the summer. And with Manchester United up next weekend, they could yet find themselves even further out of the title picture in a season that had initially promised so much. With just nine goals in 12 league games, scoring has become a serious problem since the summer departure to Real Madrid of Gareth Bale, who saved them so often last season. Not since a 7-1 loss to Newcastle in December 1996 have they been beaten by a six-goal margin -- and it could have been a lot worse. City, meanwhile, remains the enigma of the season. Flawless in six matches at the Etihad, they have picked up just four points so far from a possible 18 on their travels. As so often at home, City exploded out of the traps -- Spurs midfielder Sandro was sick on the pitch, such was the intensity of the opening minutes -- and had the game sewn up at halftime. And the hosts were given a helping hand by Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris. Spurs approach is to play the ball out from the back through the France goalkeeper but the tactic backfired here before mmany fans had settled in their seats. Christian Eriksen Jersey. Lloris weak clearance went straight to Aguero and although Lloris saved the Argentines curling shot, the ball fell to Navas, who curled a clever shot over the keeper into the top corner for Citys fastest ever goal in 21 seasons of the Premier League and the second quickest this campaign. "It was a difficult start for us," Villas-Boas said. "After that, everything you had in mind goes down the drain." Spurs enjoyed some early possession, with Erik Lamela having a shot cleared off the line by Martin Demichelis, but they always looked vulnerable at the back and Lloris was at his best to deny Aguero chipping in for the second after seven minutes. Lloris was his own worst enemy for the second goal too, making another tame kick to spark a City attack that saw Samir Nasri feed the ball to Aguero, whose effort was parried away to Negredo. The Spain strikers volley from eight yards deflected off Younes Kaboul onto the leg of Sandro and into the back of net. Aguero wrapped up a perfect first half for the hosts by steering in a textbook cross from Navas and Spurs were on their knees. It was to get much, much worse. Yaya Toure had cantered through the first 45 minutes but he burst into life in the 50th by exchanging passes with Negredo and storming into the box, where he crossed unselfishly for Aguero to sidefoot home for his 15th goal in 13 games. "For me, Kun (Aguero) is just after (Lionel) Messi and (Cristiano) Ronaldo as one of the best three players in the world," Pellegrini said. Nasri toe-poked against the bar before Negredo span his marker from Fernandinhos through-ball and fired a brilliant finish into the top corner. 5-0 and still more than half an hour left. Mercifully for Tottenham, Aguero and Nasri were taken off soon after the hour mark but the introduction of forgotten man Emmanuel Adebayor for his first appearance of the season failed to spark Spurs. And after starting the rout, Navas finished it after more dreadful defending by Spurs. A raking pass by James Milner failed to be cut out by Jan Vertonghen and Navas ran through to slip a finish past Lloris. cheap nfl jerseys cheap jerseys cheap jerseys cheap jerseys cheap nfl jerseys wholesale jerseys ' ' '
