European champions Chelsea remain in third spot with 26 points after West Bromwich Albion wasted the chance to move above them when they were beaten 1-0 at home by Stoke City.

Tottenham Hotspur moved above West Brom on goal difference into fourth place following a 3-0 victory at Fulham in which Jermain Defoe scored twice.

Arsenal slipped to 10th after a 2-0 home defeat by Michael Laudrup's Swansea City for whom Michu scored two late goals to take his league tally for the season to 11.

Liverpool were 1-0 winners at home to Southampton and bottom club Queens Park Rangers drew 1-1 at home to Aston Villa as their search for a first league win of the season continues under new manager Harry Redknapp.

Stoke City continued their good run against West Bromwich Albion with a 1-0 victory at The Hawthorns, Dean Whitehad scoring the only goal.
