Arsenal go two points clear at the top of Premier League

Arsenal go two points clear at the top of Premier League

Arsenal are now two points ahead of Liverpool and Chelsea at the top of the table after a brilliant display against Norwich City.

Two goals from Mesut Ozil, a wonder team goal netted by Wilshere and a solo attempt from Ramsey saw Arsenal outclass Norwich at Emirates.

Liverpool lost points at St. James Park despite playing against 10-man Newcastle for more than 45 minutes. Steven Gerrard scored his 100th goal in the Premier League from the penalty spot.

Chelsea came from behind courtesy of the referee’s mistake who let the goal stand after a foul from Samuel Eto’o on the goalkeeper David Marshall. Jose Mourinho’s side went on to beat Cardiff 4-1 and level with Liverpool.

Everton could have done better but still claimed a victory over a hard nut Hull City through goals from Kevin Mirallas and Steven Pienaar.

Manchester United are still struggling to find their pace as they were condemned to a draw at Old Trafford against Southampton after conceding an equalizer in the dying minutes of the game.

Manchester City were way better than the Hammers at Boleyn Ground and cruised to their first away win in the current campaign.

Tottenham Hotspur beat Aston Villa at Villa Park courtesy of goals from Andros Townsend and Roberto Soldado amidst wild scenes as the fire bomb launched from the Spurs’ fan zone hit the linesman and the case will be subject to FA investigation.

Gus Poyet did not get a warm Premier League welcome as his Sunderland was humiliated 0-4 at Liberty Stadium.

Stoke City and West Brom shared a goalless draw while Crystal Palace and Fulham meet on Monday night.

Newcastle United 2-2 Liverpool
Arsenal 4-1 Norwich City
Chelsea 4-1 Cardiff City
Everton 2-1 Hull City
Manchester United 1-1 Southampton
Stoke City 0-0 West Bromwich Albion
Swansea City 4-0 Sunderland
West Ham United 1-3 Manchester City
Aston Villa 0-2 Tottenham Hotspur
