That's not the end of the football here though continue following our coverage of Manchester United v West Ham. 16.58: Full-time: Wolves 1-1 Newcastle Fair result there, but the story has to  Andy Carroll and England call surely beckons? 16.57: Full-time: Tottenham 0-1 Wigan What a shock there! 16.55: No fairytale finish for Blackpool but it could have been worse for Ian Holloway's men, while Chelsea do a professional job over Stoke. 16.53: Full-time: Chelsea 2-0 Stoke 16.51: Stalemate at Molineux and Wigan hanging on at White Hart Lane. 16.50: Full-time: Blackpool 2-2 Fulham 16.46: Spurs all over Wigan now, Al Habsi very busy at work palming away Niko Kranjcar's effort. 16.42: GOAL! Blackpool 2-2 Fulham Dickson Etuhu has not read the script and Fulham have hit straight back at Blackpool. 16.40: GOAL! Tottenham 0-1 Wigan There is the first and it's not undeserved Hugo Rodallega has pounced to put Wigan in front. It is an understatement to say the White Hart Lane crowd are slightly unhappy about that. 16.39: Here come those final ten minutes, lets see if my half-time predictions come to the fore. 16.35: GOAL! Chelsea 2-0 Stoke Done and dusted, Frank Lamaprd has already gone off but Didier Drogba knows where the goal is and his spot-kick puts the game safe for the champions. 16.35: PENALTY! (CHELSEA) 16.34: If Blackpool hold on and win this not enough praise can go to Ian Holloway, not many teams recover from 6-0 thrashings to respond how they have, great character showed by his side. 16.31: GOAL! Blackpool 2-1 Fulham Blackpool is rocking! Luke Varney turns in Brett Ormerod's cross to complete the come back for the Seasiders. 16.30: Suddenly Blackpool have come to life, Stockdale pulls off a great save to his left to deny Charlie Adam for Blackpool. 16.28: Spurs have all the ball at White Hart Lane but have created zero, zilch, nothing. Great defending so far from Wigan and I never thought I would type that. 16.25: GOAL! Blackpool 1-1 Fulham They just couldn't score...so they got Fulham to do it for them. Bloomfield Road erupts as John Pantsil turns the ball in to his own net to equalise for Blackpool. 16.23: GOAL! Wolves 1-1 Newcastle Are you watching Fabio Capello? Joey Barton whips in a cross to man of the moment Andy Carroll who heads home the equaliser for the Toon Army. 16.17: Another goal ruled out at Blackpool, and another ruled out for Ian Holloway's side, this time for a foul on Fulham keeper David Stockdale as Elliot Grandin swept home. The Cottagers have got away with that to be honest. 16.13: Chance at Stamford Bridge....for Stoke! Petr Cech whips off his ear-phones (see 15.40) to punch away a trademark Stoke throw in, but it's hit back by Matthew Etherington and it requires a goal line clearance from Didier Drogba to keep it at 1-0. 16.10: The old cliche, it's a game of two halves? Not applicable at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea remain all over Stoke after the break. 16.08: Double sub from Harry Redknapp. Benoit Assou-Ekotto is off for Niko Kranjcar while Peter Crouch has made way for Roman Pavlyuchenko. Big 45 minutes for Spurs, if they are genuine title contenders they have to win fixtures like these. 16.06: I have a strange feeling goals will be like buses today. A few twists and turns in what will be a frantic last ten minutes as the goals start flying in. Orange sea: Fulham manager Mark Hughes looks on at Bloomfield Road 16.03: Second halves starting to get underway with Blackpool-Fulham getting part two off and running. 15.57: What a start this has been for Wolves though, they are on their way to maintaining a 100 per cent home record and after a well worked away draw at Goodison Park as well will be flying as high as third if all results stay the same. 15.51: Three goals...I expected more, Chelsea in typical fashion should be about six up, while Spurs appear to be goal shy against a side whos league defence has more holes than a sieve. 15.46: Half-time at Blackpool was greeted by a huge chorus of boos from the home fans who are clearly not happy with referee Michael Oliver. Long way to go though, game of two halves and all that. 15.43: GOAL! Wolves 1-0 Newcastle Last season he couldn't hit a barn door but that's two in two now for Sylvan Ebanks-Blake who takes advantage of poor Newcastle defending to fire Wolves in front just before half-time. 15.40: Rumors that Petr Cech is sat in his goal listening to his ipod are unconfirmed but it is still all Chelsea at Stamford Bridge, Wolves starting to creep back in to it at Newcastle where they weathered an early Toon Army storm. Head for home: Zamora scores the first Premier League goal at Blackpool's Bloomfield Road 15.35: Zamora's goal look like that should of been the third goal ruled out in that game. Moussa Dembele seems to foul Ian Evatt in the run up to that. 15.34: GOAL! Blackpool 0-1 Fulham Slightly against the run of play Bobby Zamora headers Mark Hughes' side in to the lead. For starters: Florent Malouda puts Chelsea in front where they have dominated Stoke 15.34: GOAL! Chelsea 1-0 Stoke There it is our first goal, they have been knocking at the door a while and it's Florent Malouda who breaks the Premier league deadlock. 15.32: Peter Cech a spectator at Stamford Bridge, it's all Chelsea with Spurs also starting to come to life at White Hart Lane. Welsh wizard: Gareth Bale comes under pressure from Emmerson Boyce 15.31: And so we pass the half-hour mark without any goals, I'm starting to get withdrawl symptoms. 15.25: But it's Fulham's turn to have a goal disallowed with Aaron Hughes header ruled out to even things up...sort of. Looks like a foul from Bobby Zamora is the reason behind that one. 15.24: Blackpool taking the game to Fulham in their first home match in the Premier League and they are passing it around nicely, can't question Ian Holloway's footballing philosophys anyway. 15.22: I knew opening this up with 'Goals, goals, goals' would backfire heavily. 15.20: At Molineux, Newcastle dominating so far and are picking up where they left off against Villa...without the goals obviously. 15.17: Well we have the ball in the net at Blackpool but it's been disallowed much to the dismay of the home fans. Brett Ormerod's header is ruled out for offside and in fairness it's the correct decision. 15.16: Over a quarter of an hour gone and we remain goalless, Wigan and Chelsea are looking the most threatening so far. Early chance gone: Thomas Sorensen saved Frank Lampard's penalty 15.12: But Thomas Sorensen has saved Frank Lamaprd's spot-kick! It was rubbish though, arguably worse than the one he missed in the FA Cup final a few months back and that did not even hit the target. 15.11: PENALTY! (Chelsea) 15.08: Wigan have hit the bar at White Hart Lane and it's not against the run of play, Spurs are playing sloppy and seem to be suffering a Champions League hangover. Maybe a literal one as well. 15.06: First chance for Chelsea, Ashley Cole has stormed in to the Stoke penalty area after a lovely passing move but he drags his shot just wide of the target. 15.05: Calm before the storm? No side really dominating so far, but I could be just getting impatient. Rising highest: Newcastle's Andy Carroll beats Wolves' Jody Craddock to a header 15.01: Away we go in the Premier league... 14.59: Of course at the opposite end Carlo Cudicini is in for Heurelho Gomes, but that one is due to the injury the Brazilian Gomes picked up in the Champions League win over Young Boys mid-week. 14.57: Teams are out then, one team selection I have completely overlooked is at White Hart Lane, where Roberto Martinez had opted to drop keeper Chris Kirkland and in comes Ali Al Habsi. Kirkland has not had the best of starts to be fair, conceding ten goals in two games in flaky performances, but what a baptism of fire this is for Al Habsi. 14.53: With kick-offs fast approaching, check out Andy Townsend's boot room for more detail on today's fixtures. 14.49: With his side away from home and set to take on the most in-form side in the galaxy, there is some good news for Stoke boss Tony Pulis, as big summer signing Kenwyne Jones will start today to boost his light weight strike force. 14.45: No real surprises in the lineups. In a week of sulky strops and childesque tantrums, Asmir Begovic takes his place on the Stoke bench, while want-away midfielder Charles N'zogbia is left out of the Wigan squad all together. 14.38: Arsenal have won the early Premier League kick-off against Blackburn Rovers and they briefly occupy the top of the table, it's hard to imagine Chelsea not being at the end of the afternoon in all honesty, they only need a draw. 14.35: Here is the team news from all the 3pm kick-offs.

That was the story of the Premier League last week, and looking at the fixture list today we certainly have some foundations already laid. Chelsea have already scored six in both their Premier League games this season and in Stoke today they face a side they went one better with last season by beating 7-0 at Stamford Bridge. As the under-card to that Spurs are at home to Wigan where last season they scored on average every ten minutes against the Latics to win 9-1. If that's not enough our 3pm kick off's also contain another of last weeks 6-0 entertainers, Newcastle, though it would be extraordinary if they could repeat their hammering of Villa at Wolves. Which of course leaves Blackpool and Fulham, first Premier League game at Bloomfield Road, and judging by this crazy Premier League season ANYTHING can happen there. Team news on a way in a sec...
