Arsenal back atop PL as Tottenham routed

Arsenal returned to the top of the Premier League on Sunday after Jack Wilshere rescued a point for them in a 1-1 draw at West Bromwich Albion, while rivals Tottenham Hotspur suffered a shock 3-0 thumping by West Ham United.

Chelsea relied on two goals in two minutes by substitutes Eden Hazard and Willian late in their match at Norwich City to give them a 3-1 win that lifted them to third in the league with 14 points from seven games, two behind Arsenal and Liverpool.

It looked like there was also a surprise on the cards at West Brom, who were up to their old tricks a week after stunning Manchester United, 2-1, at Old Trafford when they took a 42nd-minute lead through Claudio Yacob’s powerful downward header. After somehow escaping further damage from more West Brom chances, Arsenal drew level in the 63rd minute when Wilshere made up for his poor performance until that point, smashing in a deflected shot from 20 meters (66 feet) out.
