Manchester City achieved one of their greatest victories when they crushed Manchester United 6-1 at Old Trafford on Sunday to pull five points clear of their neighbours at the top of the Premier League.

The stunning success - their biggest at Old Trafford since a 5-0 win in 1955 - saw Mario Balotelli and late substitute Edin Dzeko score twice while Sergio Aguero and David Silva added the others.

City have 25 points from nine games, followed by United on 20, Chelsea and Newcastle United on 19 and Tottenham Hotspur on 16.

Three of City's goals came in the last four minutes and they could have had even more against a United side reduced to 10 men when Jonny Evans was sent off for grappling with Balotelli after 47 minutes.

City's title challenge was given another boost later when Chelsea were reduced to nine men in the first half after the dismissals of Jose Bosingwa and Didier Drogba and lost 1-0 at West London neighbours Queens Park Rangers.

Rangers won with a Heidar Helguson penalty after nine minutes.

Tottenham stretched their unbeaten run to 10 games in all competitions, two goals from Rafael van der Vaart giving them a 2-1 win at Blackburn Rovers who went bottom of the table.

Arsenal continued improving after their poor start to the season with a 3-1 home win over Stoke City with Robin van Persie scoring twice.

In Sunday's other match Everton won 3-1 at Fulham who are now one place and one point above the relegation zone.

Newcastle United maintained their unbeaten start to the season on Saturday, sending Wigan Athletic to the bottom of the Premier League temporarily with a 1-0 victory at St James' Park thanks to a late winner from Frenchman Yohan Cabaye.

Newcastle are fourth on 19 points after the 25-year-old France midfielder curled home a shot in the 81st minute, his first goal for the club since his move from Lille.

Liverpool's drive for a top-four place stalled when they were held to a 1-1 draw by promoted Norwich City at Anfield.

Although Newcastle were not at their best, they were still too strong for struggling Wigan who went down to a sixth successive league defeat.

Newcastle manager Alan Pardew told the BBC: "It was a really good effort by Wigan, they were faster than us at times. It needed a bit of magic and it was a great goal, Yohan's technique was top class."

Liverpool, who hit the woodwork three times at Anfield, could not capitalise after ex-Norwich player Craig Bellamy gave them the lead with the last kick of the first half.

Liverpool dominated for long periods but, apart from that goal, could find no way past Canaries keeper John Ruddy who made a series of brilliant saves, including one in the fifth minute of stoppage time from Luis Suarez.

Norwich's goal came after an hour when substitute Grant Holt marked his 100th appearance for the club with a thumping header, taking full advantage of poor keeping from Pepe Reina.

Ruddy, who had an outstanding match back on Merseyside where he used to play for Everton, told ESPN: "I'm just delighted with the point. I thought we rode our luck a bit in the first half, but in the second half we were a different animal."

The win left Norwich just three points behind Liverpool.

Wolves scored twice in the last five minutes through Kevin Doyle and Jamie O'Hara to end a run of five successive defeats with a 2-2 draw with Swansea.

"We have played better in the last five games and got nothing," McCarthy said. "We needed a break, and hopefully that is it.

"I'm not sure we are jumping around for joy as it has been a difficult day for us, but when you pick the bones out of it, it's a good point."

Elsewhere in the Midlands there was drama in the derby between Aston Villa and West Brom who came from behind to win 2-1 and secure a first victory in the league at Villa Park for the first time since 1979.

After Darren Bent gave Villa the lead with a 23rd-minute penalty, the match effectively turned when Villa defender Chris Herd was sent off for what looked like an innocuous tussle with West Brom's Jonas Olsson.

Referee Phil Dowd also awarded West Brom a penalty which Chris Brunt blasted high and wide, but he was more accurate with a corner on the stroke of halftime which was headed in by Olsson.

Paul Scharner hooked in what proved to West Brom's winner after 57 minutes.

Sunderland won 2-0 at lowly Bolton Wanderers, Stephane Sessegnon and Nicklas Bendtner earning the visitors their first away win of the season and leaving Owen Coyle's men in the relegation zone along with Blackburn Rovers and Wigan.
