Saturday Video Highlights - Bundesliga & EPL

Arsenal went top of the Premier League on Saturday after beating Fulham 2-1 thanks to two stunning individual goals by Samir Nasri. The French playmaker, enjoying his best run of form for the London club, scored a superb winner in the 75th minute to lift the Gunners to 32 points and above Manchester United, whose match at Blackpool was postponed because of a frozen pitch.

Chelsea, which started the day in second place, would have stayed ahead of Arsenal if they had beaten Everton at Stamford Bridge but they only managed to draw 1-1 and fell to third. Carlos Tevez scored an early goal Saturday to give Manchester City a 1-0 victory over Bolton and strengthen its grip on fourth place. Tevez was clearly unhappy at being taken off in the final minute, venting his frustration at manager Roberto Mancini after reluctantly walking off the pitch.

In other matches that were played on Saturday, Blackburn rebounded from their 7-1 humiliation by Manchested United to beat struggling Wolverhampton Wanderers 3-0, Birmingham held title-chasing Tottenham to a 1-1 draw at St. Andrews and four first-half goals involving three deflections at DW Stadum saw Wigan drew 2-2 with Stoke.

Meanwhile in Bundesliga, Theofanis Gekas' late penalty finally put Eintracht Frankfurt back on the winning track as they secured a 2-1 victory over high-flying Mainz at the Commerzbank-Arena. Wolfsburg and Werder Bremen shared the points in a 0-0 draw that saw both captains miss from the penalty spot.

Hannover scored twice in three minutes to come from behind to beat ten-man Borussia Monchengladbach 2-1 and record their fourth straight victory. Struggling Stuttgart missed the chance to claim a much-needed win as they were held to a 1-1 draw at home by ten-man Hoffenheim. An early goal from Papiss Demba Cisse ensured Freiburg got back on the winning trail with a 1-0 win at home to Hamburg.

In the much-awaited clash between two heavyweights, Schalke got a badly-needed breather, but Bayern Munich's ambitions were dealt another blow as they languish in seventh place. Coming off a 5-0 drubbing in Kaiserslautern and mid-week crisis talks, Felix Magath's Schalke was under pressure against his former team but Jose Manuel Jurado and Benedikt Hoewedes were on target for Schalke as they beat Bayurn Munich 2-0.
