LONDON - Arsenal and Chelsea showed more great form ahead of Champions League matches with thrashings of Norwich and Cardiff that left the London clubs first and second respectively in the Premier League on Saturday. Now unbeaten in 12 games in all competitions, Arsenal dismantled Norwich 4-1 at home while Samuel Etoo scored his first Chelsea goal and was involved in a controversial equalizer to spark a 4-1 win at Stamford Bridge. Arsenal has not lost a game since its opening Premier League 3-1 home loss to Aston Villa in August that angered the Gunners fans and might have played a role in German playmaker Mesut Ozils transfer to the club from Real Madrid. Ozil scored a brace against Norwich and has been key to Arsenals resurgence. "A few weeks ago we lost our first home game here and it was a difficult time, but we responded well and since then we have been consistent," Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said ahead of Tuesdays Champions League match against Borussia Dortmund. "I like the solidarity in the team, of course we have quality, but its how much we maintain that and sustain that, that will decide our future." The Gunners are two points clear of Chelsea and Liverpool after the Reds had to settle for a point in a 2-2 draw against 10-man Newcastle. Adam Lallana grabbed a late equalizer for Southampton in a 1-1 draw at Manchester United, adding to the defending champions troubles in a lacklustre start to their title defence. Also on Saturday, Everton beat Hull 2-1, Stoke was held to a 0-0 draw by West Brom and Swansea defeated last-place Sunderland 4-0. At St James Park, Daniel Sturridges header salvaged a point for Liverpool against 10-man Newcastle, but the England striker also missed a great opportunity to give the Reds the win in the closing stages when he completely misjudged his volley after being brilliantly picked out in the area by Steven Gerrard. Yohan Cabayes long-range strike had put the Magpies ahead before Gerrard scored his 100th league goal for Liverpool, equalizing from the spot after defender Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa was sent-off for a foul on Luis Suarez in the 40th minute. Substitute Paul Dummet restored the home sides lead in the 57th with a shot at the far post against the run of the play but Sturridge headed home Suarezs precise cross in the 72nd. Liverpool monopolized the ball after halftime and created the best chances but Sturridge, who has scored in seven of Liverpools eight league matches this season, volleyed wide before Newcastle goalkeeper Krul denied Suarezs free kick in added time with an excellent save. "Its a chance missed for us today," Gerrard said. "I thought we did enough to win it but credit to Newcastle for hanging in there. After the sending off the game changed. They started strongly but we dominated the rest of game but couldnt get enough goals to win it." Ahead of its Champions League trip to Schalke, Chelsea extended its unbeaten Premier League run at home to 13 matches after recovering from a goal down and equalizing with a controversial goal which should have been disallowed. Jordon Mutch had put the visitors in front before Eden Hazard levelled in the 33rd, being set up by Etoo who caught out Cardiff goalkeeper David Marshall while he was bouncing the ball, leading to Hazard scoring from close range. FIFA rules state the goalkeeper is still in possession at that point. Etoo made it 2-1 in the 66th before Oscar put the match to bed and Hazard scored his second of the afternoon. Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho was sent to the stands before the third and four goals for berating the officials as Chelsea fans chanted "Jose Mourinho, he sits where he wants." Mourinho climbed over the dugout and opted to sit next to a fan who tweeted: "OMG morinho is sitting next to me." Manchester Uniteds disappointing start to the season continued as Southampton scored a late equalizer at Old Trafford. United had taken the lead after 26 minutes when Robin Van Persie scored from the rebound after Wayne Rooneys shot was saved by Artur Boruc. Rooney then hit the crossbar with a volley moments later and Van Persie headed against the bar in the second half before Southampton levelled in the 89th as Lallana bundled in a corner from James Ward-Prowse. "We had the opportunities to go 2-0 up. They had been knocking on the door but I thought we would see it out," United manager David Moyes said. "But if you dont defend a corner well enough, theres always a chance they will score. We had a couple of good chances where we could have finished them off and if we had scored a second it wouldve put the game to bed, but 1-0 is always a dangerous scoreline." United is provisionally eighth in the standings, eight points behind Arsenal. Axel Werner Jersey . - Vince Wilfork has played only two career games in Kansas City. Yannick Carrasco Jersey .

However, Ince thinks that the style of football United have been playing this season is the main reason why their Dutch boss is under pressure.Ince spent six years at Old Trafford during which time he played his part in two Premier League successes and was a member of the team that won the FA Cup finals in 1990 and 1994. He told Sky Sports News HQ on Friday: Its not just about winning a trophy. He (Van Gaal) said winning a cup was probably better than finishing in the top four. But thats ridiculous as far as Im concerned. The tippy-tappy football they have been playing has not been great. Paul Ince They need to be in the Champions League and winning the FA Cup doesnt change that. But I think its more about the style of football the fans have seen this year.Its not the exciting, free-flowing football, creating chances. Theyve sttruggled to score goals and the tippy-tappy football they have been playing has not been great.ddddddddddddf they win itll just cover over the cracks and if they lose, Ed Woodward (chief executive) will have a decision to make. Ince (far left) was part of Manchester Uniteds FA Cup-winning team in 1990 Ince also said that Van Gaal is in a similar position to Sir Alex Ferguson 26 years ago, the season United beat Palace in the FA Cup final at the old Wembley Stadium.The former England player added: In 1990 we went to Nottingham Forest (3rd round tie), won 1-0 and Mark Robbins scored.People said if we hadnt have won, it would have been the end of Alex Ferguson.We won the game, went on to win the cup, then the European Cup Winners Cup, League Cup and the Premier League. So maybe that is parallel to this situation.
