Arsenal 2 - 1 Manchester United

French winger Nasri struck in each half at the Emirates Stadium to lift the Gunners above United into third place and within six points of leaders Liverpool. Brazilian teenager Rafael Da Silva pulled one back with his first goal for United in the last minute, but the champions' first defeat against Arsenal in four meetings left Sir Alex Ferguson's team eight points off the top of the table.

After losing at Liverpool and drawing at Chelsea already this season, United once again failed to beat one of their major title rivals. Nasri opened the scoring in the 22nd minute when his shot from the edge of the penalty area deflected off Gary Neville and past United keeper Edwin van der Sar.

Despite the absence of first-choice forwards Emmanuel Adebayor and Robin van Persie, Arsenal created a host of chances in an enthralling game and Nasri increased their lead in the 48th minute with a fine finish from Cesc Fabregas's pass.

Liverpool 3 - 0 WBA

Robbie Keane's first double for Liverpool put the Reds three points clear of second-placed Chelsea, although Luiz Felipe Scolari's team would replace them at the summit with a win at Blackburn on Sunday.

Rafa Benitez's side went ahead against Albion in the 34th minute when Steven Gerrard's astute pass picked out Keane and the Irish forward cleverly lifted his shot over Scott Carson. Keane then put Liverpool in total command in the 43rd minute when he slotted into the empty net after Carson rashly charged off his line. Fernando Torres returned from a hamstring injury as a second-half substitute before Alvaro Arbeloa curled in the third goal in stoppage time. FIFA
