Arsenal got a major blow to their title challenge, while Manchester United lose ground after sharing points with Fulham

Liverpool outclassed Arsenal at Anfield to go just six points from top of the table.

Four goals in the opening 20 minutes was a hectic start for Arsene Wenger at Anfield as his players were left bemused with Liverpool’s ruthless flair. Two goals from Martin Skrtel, another brace from Raheem Sterling and a goal from Daniel Sturridge saw The Gunners trail 5-0 shortly after the break before Wenger took off Giroud, Ozil and Nacho Monreal and introduced Rosicky, Podolski and Gibbs to stop the drubbing. Mikel Arteta pulled one back from penalty spot on 69 minutes. Arsenal dropped to second place in the table before Wednesday clash against Manchester United at The Emirates.

Eden Hazard shone for Chelsea yet another time and scored a hat-trick against reckless Newcastle United to put Jose Mourinho’s side top of the table.

Manchester City slipped at Norwich after failing to score in a second consecutive match. However, they will now have three games at Etihad in Premier League to get back to winning ways.

David Moyes suffered another huge blow as he failed to beat struggling Fulham at Old Trafford. Despite colossal possession, The Red Devils conceded from Steve Sidwell early on after some woeful defensive performance. United only managed to bounce back on 78 and 80 minutes courtesy of Robin van Persie and Michael Carrick goals but conceded an equalizer from Darren Bent deep in injury time to put their Champions League hopes under major concern.

Tottenham Hotspur got a narrow win over Everton courtesy of Emmanuel Adebayor goal to move closer to Premier League leaders.

Liverpool 5-1 Arsenal
Aston Villa 0-2 West Ham United
Chelsea 3-0 Newcastle United
Crystal Palace 3-1 West Bromwich Albion
Norwich City 0-0 Manchester City
Southampton 2-2 Stoke City
Sunderland 0-2 Hull City
Swansea City 3-0 Cardiff City
Tottenham Hotspur 1-0 Everton
Manchester United 2-2 Fulham

Not a great example from captain Vidic, he was thinking about Inter contract, not the game.. And they will blame Moyes, maybe some (all) players should take responsibility?
