Chelsea down Manchester City at Stamford Bridge, Arsenal stay on top

A medoiocre performance by Arsene Wenger’s standards was still enough for Arsenal to beat struggling Crystal Palace and stay top of the table.

Mikel Arteta converted a penalty before being sent off on 65 minutes. 10-man Arsenal went on to kill the game off minutes before the end as Olivier Giroud netted from Aaron Ramsey pass.

Romelu Lukaku and Leon Osman scored for Everton at Villa Park to see the Toffees go past Manchetser City.

Manchester United were on the brink of another dismal defeat at Old Trafford against Stoke City, but showed a glimpse of their notorious fighting spirit to come from behind and win the match courtesy of late Wayne Rooney and Javier Hernanadez headers.

Mauricio Pochettini’s Southampton continues to impress with another clean sheet against uninspired Fulham. Rickie Lambert and Jay Rodriguez hit the back of the net to beat Martin Jol’s side.

Sunderland get their first win of the season in Tyne derby against Newcastle United and left the last position in the table. Steven Fletcher and Fabio Borini scored for The Black Cats.

In-form Luis Suarez provided a stellar display netting a hat-trick and see Liverpool cruise past West Bromwich Albion at Anfield.

Roberto Soldado’s late penalty strike was enough for Spurs to earn three points against The Tigers and stay in the top four.

Fernando Torres dramatic goal on 90 minutes saw Chelsea win against Manchester City and continue their successful home run under Jose Mourinho. Andre Shurrle scored to give his side a lead in the first half, but Sergio Aguero equalized shortly after the break. The teams looked set to share points but a grotesque misunderstanding between Joe Hart and Matija Nastasic saw Torres hit the winner minutes before the final whistle.

Swansea City and West Ham United as well as Norwich City and Cardiff City had goalless draws in the weekend.
