  Premiership: Gunners keep winning
Updated 16 October 2004, 19.15
Arsenal came back from behind against Aston Villa
Arsenal extended their lead at the top of the Premiership after beating Aston Villa 3-1 at Highbury.

But the champions were shocked when Lee Hendrie gave Villa the lead with their first attack before Robert Pires with two goals and Thierry Henry scored.

Chelsea stay five points behind after losing to Manchester City 1-0 for their first loss in the league this season.

Rivals Manchester United lost even more ground on the Gunners when they could only draw 0-0 at Birmingham.

Wayne Rooney started the game on the bench but he couldn't make a difference as his side fell 11 points behind.

Even though United have only lost once this season they are down in sixth place after drawing their last two league games.

Chelsea were beaten when Nicolas Anelka netted a penalty after 11 minutes for Manchester City.

Chelsea defender Paolo Ferreira was booked for the challenge that gave away the penalty, and may have been lucky not to have got a red card.

Liverpool fightback

Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink netted a hat-trick for Middlesbrough at Blackburn in a 4-0 win to move them above United.

Liverpool fought back from 2-0 at Fulham to earn all three points in a 4-2 win despite having to play the final minutes with 10 men.

Full-back Josemi was sent off for two yellow cards after fouling the player who scored both Fulham goals Luis Boa Morte.

But an own goal, Milan Baros, a brilliant Xavi Alonso free-kick and Igor Biscan earned victory for Liverpool.

Bolton leapt into the top four with a 1-0 win against Crystal Palace, Kevin Davies heading in the winner.

Late goal for Toffees

Everton snatched a late winner at home to Southampton, Leon Osman scoring in the final minutes.

The battle between two promoted sides, West Bromwich and Norwich ended goalless.
