Arsenal prevail, Suárez shines for Liverpool

Mikel Arteta scored a penalty but was later sent off as Arsenal FC won at Crystal Palace FC, while Luis Suárez hit a hat-trick as Liverpool FC beat West Bromwich Albion FC.

A Mikel Arteta penalty and a late Olivier Giroud strike at manager-less Crystal Palace FC consolidated ten-man Arsenal FC's position at the top of the Premier League.

Arsène Wenger's side lost 2-1 at home against Borussia Dortmund in their midweek UEFA Champions League game, and took the lead with a couple of minutes of the restart, Arteta finishing from the spot after Adlène Guedioura brought down teenager Serge Gnabry. Arteta was then sent off for a professional foul on former Arsenal striker Marouane Chamakh, and the Gunners had to withstand some pressure before Giroud got his head to an Aaron Ramsey ball three minutes from time.

The Gunners are two points clear of Liverpool FC, who overwhelmed West Bromwich Albion FC 4-1 – a win shaped by Luis Suárez's first Anfield hat-trick. The Uruguayan international scored two inside the opening 18 minutes; a neat finish after nutmegging Jonas Olsson, and a thumping header from 15 metres. Suárez nodded in another to complete his treble before Daniel Sturridge wrapped things up with a lob. James Morrison's spot-kick was scant consolation for West Brom.

Six points further back, Manchester United FC twice came from behind to post a 3-2 win against Stoke City FC at Old Trafford, two goals in two minutes late on from Wayne Rooney and Javier Hernández securing an important success for the reigning champions.

Tim Howard saved a Christian Benteke penalty as Everton FC won 2-0 at Aston Villa FC, while Norwich City FC v Cardiff City FC ended goalless. Southampton FC's fine start to the season continued as Rickie Lambert and Jay Rodriguez scored to secure a 2-0 win against Fulham FC in the late game; the Saints go into Sunday third in the table.
