LONDON, Sporting Alert – EPL halftime scores from the games already taking place in Week 16 on Saturday, December 12.
At the Etihad Stadium: Manchester City are leading Swansea City 1-0 at halftime after former Swan, Wilfried Bony scored against his old club in the 26th minute.
Jesus Navas delivered a corner kick, which Bony met with his head to break the deadlock, this after Ashley Williams failed to keep track of his man inside the box.
At the Stadium of Light: Odion Ighalo netted an early goal to give Watford the lead against Sunderland, although it looks as though Blackcats defender Sebastian Coates may have gotten the final touch before the ball crossed the line.
Ighalo fended off a challenge from Coates to guide home a cross from Allan Nyom at the near post from close range, but the Sunderland defender may have had the final touch.
At Selhurst Park: Yohan Cabaye scored in the 38th minute to give Crystal Palace a 1-0 lead at halftime in their EPL clash with Southampton.
Busy winger Yannick Bolasie found Cabaye inside the box and the midfielder easily tap home from six yards.

In-form Belgium striker Romelu Lukaku added another goal to his tally this season after scoring the opener for Everton in the 15th minute when he head home from the back post off a cross played in by Gerard Deulofeu.
However, Norwich grabbed an equaliser through Wes Hoolahan, who slid the ball home from close range with Ross Barkley desperately trying to clear off the line.
Everton boss Roberto Martinez said: “We are very, very disappointed because our first half performance was as good an away performance as you’ll see.
“Like Monday, our performance deserved more. We need to make sure we learn from this period.
“We feel unfortunate not to have three points. We need to develop how our ruthless edge.
“We need to make sure we defend our box properly to back up all the attacking flair at the other end.”
