Premier League round-up

Today's Premier League results saw Chelsea reignite their championship winning form with a rampant defeat over in-form Man City. Man Utd kept up their winning streak easing past Middlesbrough at Old Trafford. Birmingham scraped a win in a 5 goal thriller at home to Wigan, but only just. Reading got a much needed 3 points against Newcastle. A late Kenwyn Jones goal earned a point for Roy Keane's Sunderland at home to Fulham. West Ham saw out a nil-nil draw in Fratton Park.

After a 3rd minute wonder strike from Utd new boy Nani, a Jeremie Aliader equaliser gave the Teeside fans false hope as 3 more goals from Wayne Rooney and Carlos Tevez(2) sealed a 4-1 victory for the Red Devils.

Despite Marcus Bent putting Wigan in front twice at St. Andrews, two goals from Olivier Kapo including a penalty and a third from Liam Ridgewell gave the home side all three points in a thrilling game.

Reading overcame Newcastle at the Madejski, with Dave Kitson's 53rd minute strike giving the Royals the lead before Michael Duberry turned the ball into his own net to level things up. A super sub by Steve Coppell, saw Irish international Shane Long scoring within a minute of coming on to give Reading the win.

Simon Davies put Fulham in front at the Stadium of Light and Sunderland were up against it and an early bath for Black Cats defender Greg Halford didn't make matters easier for the home side. But a late header from Kenwyn Jones left the Londoners hanging on in the closing stages.

Premier League topscorer Benjani saw his late penalty saved by West Ham keeper, Rob Green to share the spoils at Fratton Park in an otherwise event less game.
