Chelsea preserve hot start with 4-2 over Spurs; Man City also victorious

LONDON -- Chelsea maintained its flying start to the Premier League by beating Tottenham 4-2 away to preserve its four-point lead, while Manchester City needed a last-gasp winner to keep the pressure on the European champions on Saturday.

Substitute Edin Dzeko scored twice in the last 10 minutes — his second coming in injury time — to earn City a 2-1 victory at West Bromwich Albion despite playing with 10 men for more than an hour.

Second-place Manchester United remained level on points with City thanks to a 4-2 home win over Stoke, with Wayne Rooney scoring twice — as well as an own goal — to open his account for the season.

Chelsea, though, look unstoppable at the moment after recovering from going 2-1 down to end Spurs' four-match winning run under former manager Andre Villas-Boas.

Spain playmaker Juan Mata grabbed two goals and set up another for the unbeaten visitors, who have picked up 22 points from a possible 24 this campaign — matching City's start to its title-winning season last year.

Arsenal dropped further off the pace by surprisingly losing 1-0 at Norwich, which picked up its first win of the season, and Raheem Sterling became Liverpool's second youngest scorer ever in the Premier League by grabbing a first-half winner in the 1-0 victory over Reading at Anfield.

The win was only the hosts' third at home in 2012, lifting them up to mid-table.

West Ham maintained its impressive start to life back in the top division by thrashing Southampton 4-1, while Swansea beat Wigan 2-1 and Fulham edged past Aston Villa 1-0.

The standout match came at White Hart Lane, where Villas-Boas was undone by a player he signed in the summer of 2011 when in charge of Chelsea.
