Eden Hazard and Willian scored late goals as Chelsea left it late to secure a 3-1 victory over Norwich City at Carrow Road.

Meanwhile, at St Mary’s, Southampton captain Adam Lallana and Jay Rodriguez were on the score sheet as the Saints were 2-0 winners against Swansea City.

Here is a selection of our favourite tweets from the professionals, past and present, in chronological order to Sunday’s early kick-offs.

Former Celtic striker John Hartson ‏(@JohnHartson10) finds José Mourinho’s pre-match interview a bit ironic: “Mourinho saying the game has no place for diving!! Wow the great man has changed his tone since 2003 Uefa Cup final. Porto were a disgrace!”

Republic of Ireland defender Darren O’Dea (‏@odea_darren) echoes Hartson’s sentiments: “Mourinho in the press saying anyone of his players diving will be in big trouble! Must have been murders in that dressing room in Seville!”

Former Chelsea defender Michael Duberry (‏@Original_Dubes) is impressed by Ba: “Demba Ba is looking good so far! Holding it up and bringing others in! #OldSkoolNumberNine #Chelsea”

Tennis legend and Chelsea fan Boris Becker ‏(@TheBorisBecker) is also enjoying the Senegal striker’s display: “#Ba is playing well, causing a lot of havoc in the #Norwich defence…..”

Meanwhile, at St Mary’s, ex-Southampton defender Claus Lundekvam ‏(@SaintSkipper) hails the captain’s goal: “Adam Lallana’s 40th goal for the Saints… Arthur Boruc has been top class this season. Match-winner.”

Norwich City legend Darren Huckerby ‏(@hucks6dh6) is encouraged by the Canaries’ performance: “Not a bad half, created a few chances, Chelsea comfortable without creating much, always look like they’ve got a few extra gears if needed!”

Ex-Aston Villa man Dion Dublin (‏@DionDublinsDube) is well-placed to judge physical front-men: “Norwich are doing ok so far but BA is proving to by a massive handful for the boys at the back #concentrationiskey”

Former Chelsea midfielder Jody Morris ‏(@morriskid) reckons the Blues were let off by the referee: “Ooooh that could have been a penalty I think.”

England rugby star Ugo Monye (‏@ugomonye) likes Willian’s wonder goal: “Take a bow Willian #tekkers”

England legend Gary Lineker ‏(@GaryLineker) now understands why Chelsea paid £30m for Willian: “Wonderful goal from Willian. That’s what all the fuss was about.”

Injured Saints defender Luke Shaw ‏(@Luke_shaw3) praises his team-mates: “Three points, clean sheet and fourth in the league! Well done boys.”

Finally, ex-Liverpool midfielder Dietmar Hamann ‏(@DietmarHamann) still can’t understand the decision to send Romelu Lukaku out on loan: “On how many goals will Lukaku be on before a Chelsea forward scores his first goal in the PL?”
