Saturday Video Highlights - Premier League

Manchester City moved level with Arsenal at the top of the table as Aston Villa claimed a vital derby victory against West Brom. In the evening kick-off Newcastle United gave Alan Pardew a winning start as the club's new manager courtesy of a 3-1 success over Liverpool. Blackpool added Stoke to their list of scalps this season, while Fulham played out a goalless draw at home to Sunderland and Everton's clash with Wigan also ended in stalemate.

Newcastle climbed into fourth in the Premier League table in the late kick-off following a hard-fought 3-1 victory over Liverpool. Dirk Kuyt cancelled out Kevin Nolan's first-half opener just minutes into the second half, however, The Magpies finished with a flourish to claim all three points. Joey Barton slotted home the go-ahead goal after pouncing on a loose ball before Andy Carroll superb strike deep into added time wrapped up the success.

Aston Villa overcame Midlands rivals West Brom 2-1 to end a run of three successive losses and ease the pressure on beleaguered boss Gerard Houllier. Stewart Downing broke the deadlock for Villa with a close-range finish after 25 minutes. Emile Heskey scoed the second just 10 minutes from time but the Baggies did manage to pull a goal back late on.

Manchester City extended their unbeaten run to seven games with a 3-1 victory at Upton Park that leaves West Ham bottom of the Premier League standings.Roberto Mancini had called on his players to show they could score, and win, without Carlos Tevez, and Yaya Toure accepted the challenge on the half-hour mark by producing a fantastic strike.

City doubled their advantage in the 73rd minute when Toure's angled drive struck the post before going in off Robert Green's back. Substitute Adam Johnson, who replaced a misfiring Mario Balotelli, then got in on the act with nine minutes remaining. James Tomkins scored a consolation for the Hammers.
