Arsenal and Chelsea show offensive power with 4-1 wins

Eden Hazard scored twice as Chelsea rallied to beat Cardiff 4-1 Saturday and extend its unbeaten Premier League run at home to 13 matches and Arsenal won with the same scoreline, albeit more comfortably.

Cardiff went ahead in the 10th after Jordon Mutch exploited poor defending before Samuel Eto'o set up a bizarre equalizer for Chelsea in the 33rd at Stamford Bridge.

Eto'o crept up on Cardiff goalkeeper David Marshall who was caught unaware while bouncing the ball, leading to Hazard's first goal from close range.

Chelsea made sure of the win with Oscar's right-footed shot from outside the area in the 78th before Frank Lampard set up Hazard's second with eight minutes left.

Mesut Ozil scored twice as Arsenal showed its great offensive power and extended its lead in the English Premier League to two points with their win against Norwich.

Now unbeaten in 12 games in all competitions, Arsene Wenger's team dominated and was rewarded with a beautiful goal in the 18th minute when Jack Wilshere beat the offisde trap to conclude a swift collective move after Olivier Giroud beautifully flicked the ball between four defenders to set up the England striker.

Having recovered from the knee injury he sustained while playing for Germany midweek, Ozil scored his first league goal to double his team's lead with a header from Giroud's cross in the 58th after a fast counterattack.

Jonathan Howson pulled one back for Norwich before Aaron Ramsey and Ozil put the game to bed.
