Reds and Chelsea both score wins

Liverpool celebrate their opening goal

Liverpool and Chelsea have piled the pressure on Manchester United after both teams won in the Premier League.

Liverpool battled to a tough 3-1 win at Hull City, taking all three points to go back to the top of the table.

Xabi Alonso and Dirk Kuyt gave the Reds a two-goal lead, before Geovanni gave Hull fans hope with a goal. Kuyt then bagged a late third to seal victory.

Chelsea had goalkeeper Petr Cech to thank for their 1-0 win at West Ham, as he saved a second-half penalty.

Mark Noble missed the spot-kick for the Hammers, after Salomon Kalou earlier scored from close range for the Blues.

There was finally something to celebrate for West Bromwich Albion fans after they thumped Sunderland 3-0.

The Baggies have been rooted to the bottom of the table for a long time now, but cruised to a big win after goals from Jonas Olsson, Chris Brunt and Juan Carlos Menseguez.

As well as a welcome three points for West Brom, the result will also make Sunderland fans nervous about their team's chances of staying in the Premier League.

Manchester United have the chance to go back to the top of the table when they take on Tottenham at Old Trafford later on Saturday.
