Fulham 1 - 0 Man City

Jimmy Bullard scored his first league goal of the season to earn Fulham a point at home to Manchester City and extend their unbeaten run to five matches.

With England manager Fabio Capello watching from the stands, Bullard smashed home in the 27th minute to cancel out Benjani Mwaruwari's early header. Midfielder Clint Dempsey and striker Bobby Zamora both missed good chances to seal a win for Fulham, although goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer saved well from City's Pablo Zabaleta late on.

Arsenal 1 - 0 Wigan

Emmanuel Adebayor grabbed the winner against Wigan Athletic as Arsenal earned the battling victory they wanted to prove they are Barclays Premier League title contenders.

Adebayor, making his second start after returning from an ankle injury, struck in the 16th minute at the Emirates Stadium and was denied further goals by Chris Kirkland and the woodwork.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger saw Sam
ir Nasri limp off after a robust challenge from Wilson Palacios but could reflect on three points to build on last Sunday's win over Chelsea. How Arsenal would respond after defeating Luiz Felipe Scolari's men was seen as a true test of their title credentials, as the victory over Manchester United was followed up with defeats to Aston Villa and Manchester City.

Wigan were hardly in poor form either, after going unbeaten in their previous five league matches. In fact, their only defeat in the last month was against Wenger's youngsters in the Carling Cup.

Blackburn 1 - 3 Liverpool

Yossi Benayoun's superb solo effort helped to keep Liverpool on top of the Barclays Premier League at Ewood Park.

The Israel midfielder latched on to a fine ball over the top from Dirk Kuyt in the 79th minute. There was still work to be done but he skipped past Stephen Warnock before rifling a shot into the corner for his team's second. That effectively sealed an important victory for Liverpool after Xabi Alonso had opened the scoring 11 minutes earlier.

Roque Santa Cruz got a consolation goal in the 86th minute only for Steven Gerrard to have the last word in stoppage-time. Blackburn Rovers have now failed to win in 10 league matches yet there was little to choose between the sides in the first half, despite the vast difference in league positions.

Bolton 0 - 2 Chelsea

Nicolas Anelka struck the 99th goal of his Premier League career to help Chelsea to a place in the record books.

On his old Bolton Wanderers stamping ground 11 months after a £15m move, a diving header from Anelka gave the Blues an 11th consecutive away win in the league, with eight this season. Deco's sumptuous scissor-kick 12 minutes later sealed the victory as Chelsea eclipsed the mark set 48 years ago by Bill Nicholson's Tottenham Hotspur side.

With leaders Liverpool winning at Blackburn Rovers, the win keeps perfect-on-the-road Chelsea hot on the heels of the Merseyside club at the top of the table. Despite Chelsea's frightening away record coming into this match, and their dominance over Bolton as they have now won their last six at the Reebok Stadium without conceding a goal, the home side came into the match on a roll themselves with four wins in five matches.

Hull City 2 - 1 Middlesbrough

Hull City produced a dramatic late comeback to snatch victory over 10-man Middlesbrough at the KC Stadium.

Boro looked on course for their first Barclays Premier League win in four matches when Tuncay Sanli flicked his side ahead 11 minutes from time. Yet Hull responded immediately with Bernard Mendy's drive hitting a post and rebounding in off Ross Turnbull and Marlon King scoring a penalty after David Wheater was sent off. Wheater had brought down the dangerous Geovanni in the area and referee Steve Tanner had no hesitation in showing the red card.

Newcastle United 2 - 2 Stoke City

Even Michael Owen's return to goalscoring form could not bring Newcastle United a victory as former Magpie Abdoulaye Faye snatched a point for Stoke City.

Owen struck twice inside the opening 24 minutes to give his side the perfect platform at St James' Park. Mamady Sidibe pulled one back on the hour and Faye levelled in injury time as a late onslaught finally paid dividends in front of a largely devastated crowd of 47,422.

Manchester United 1 - 0 Sunderland

Nemanja Vidic broke Sunderland hearts with a last-gasp winner for Manchester United at Old Trafford.

Three days after Roy Keane's shock exit as manager, it seemed the Black Cats would record a suitable epitaph for his time in charge as they mounted a brave rearguard action. With Marton Fulop and Dean Whitehead outstanding, Sunderland reached the final minute with their goal still intact.

But, as they have done so often, and as Sunderland have found to their cost before, United still came up with a killer blow. With virtually their final attack, Carrick went for goal. His long-range effort struck Carlos Edwards and smashed onto a post. Finally, Fulop was helpless and as the ball rolled across his penalty area, up stepped Vidic, who tapped into an empty net.
