Swansea City and Norwich City shared the points after a 1-1 draw at Carrow Road this afternoon.

Swansea's Nathan Dyer broke the deadlock on 12 minutes. The winger collected a long Ashley Williams pass and calmly lobbed the ball over the head of home keeper John Ruddy to give the Swans the lead.

Dyer was then stretchered off with what looks like a suspected fractured ankle after a clash with Norwich defender Sebastien Bassong.

After receiving treatment on the pitch he was taken to hospital for an x-ray.

The injury seemed to unsettle Swansea and in the 5th minute of injury time at the end of the first half Norwich striker Gary Hooper scored a stunning volley to level the score.

Hooper went close to a winner in the second half with a header that crashed onto the woodwork, while Wilfried Bony curled an effort just wide in the closing minutes.

Swansea City stay 10th in the Premier League after today's point and welcome high flying Everton to the Liberty Stadium next Sunday.

A thrilling evening at the Liberty Stadium saw Swansea narrowly miss out on a victory against an on-form Liverpool.

The performances of both sides were overshadowed by Swans newcomer Jonjo Shelvey as he had a hand in all four goals against his old club.

Swansea were a goal up after just two minutes, thanks to Shelvey, but Liverpool soon came back with a goal from Daniel Sturridge after a sloppy pass by the midfielder.

The visitors managed a second goal 10 minutes before half-time from Victor Moses after another mistake from the club's former player.

Swansea's Michu managed to equalise with a header in the second half.

Jonjo Shelvey later apologised to the Swansea City fans after handing both goals to Liverpool.

Swansea are now in 13th place in the Premier League table and Liverpool move to top.

Tottenham Hotspur are currently unbeaten in nine of their Premier League appearances.

Speculation surrounding Gareth Bale's departure to Real Madrid continues to heat up as officials say he's out of the side with an injury for today's match.

Cardiff City Stadium welcomes Premier League football for the first time in its history today when Manchester City travel to Wales to take on the Bluebirds.

The last time they met was in the FA Cup in 1994 when Cardiff beat the side 1-0.

If Craig Bellamy is chosen in the side, he'll face his former club where he spent two seasons between 2009-2011.

27,000 fans are expected to descend on the capital today and the British Transport Police have stepped up their presence on public transport ahead of the busy football season.

The match kicks off today at 4pm.

Cardiff could cash in on success

Cardiff City’s promotion to the Premiership is fantastic news. It is the result of much hard work and dedication by the team, and is well deserved.

Swansea City’s first season in the Premiership brought an estimated £58m into Wales, creating around 420 new jobs, and it is essential that Cardiff starts making the most of this opportunity right from the off.
