Arjen Robben scored a last-gasp goal to help Chelse beat Wigan 3-2, a result that keeps the defending champions within reach of the Premiership pacesetters Manchester United who earned a 3-0 win at Aston Villa in an earlier game on Saturday.

After a goalless first half at Villa Park, Cristiano Ronaldo broke the deadlock, before Scholes's 30-yard volley captured the imagination, and Ronaldo scored his second goal of the game five minutes from time.

United had briefly increased their lead over Chelsea to five points, but The Blues narrowed the gap again with a 3-2 victory at Wigan - though that only tells half the story at The JJB Stadium.

Salomon Kalou and Frank Lampard shot Chelsea into a two-goal lead, but Emile Heskey struck either side of the break to haul his team level.

Chelsea had looked out of sorts but snatched victory through Robben's shot from the edge of the area which found its way into the bottom corner of Chris Kirkland's goal.

Arsenal scored six goals at Emirates Stadium, as Arsene Wenger's side got back to winning ways in emphatic style with victory over Blackburn.

Wenger's side had actually fallen behind to Shabani Nonda's early penalty, but goals from Gilberto, Alexander Hleb and Emanuel Adebayor, also a penalty, completed the first-half turnaround.

Nonda again gave Rovers hope, but a late double from Robin van Persie and another from Mathieu Flamini sealed the rout and a hugely impressive 6-2 win.

Liverpool were also victors on Saturday, albeit in more modest fashion. Goals from Craig Bellamy and Xabi Alonso saw Rafa Benitez's team see off the challenge of a plucky Watford side in a2-0 win.

Middlesbrough earned a much-needed win over an even more desperate Charlton side at The Riverside.

Yakubu got the ball rolling for the hosts in the 29th minute and Julio Arca's strike seven minutes after half time completed a comfortable win over The Addicks.

Newcastle's three-goal first-half blitz proved sufficient to account for Tottenham.

Kieron Dyer and Obafemi Martins put The Magpies 2-0 up inside seven minutes and, though Danny Murphy's deflected shot halved arrears on the quarter-hour, Scott Parker scored his team's third goal on 34 minutes.

A first-half double from former City striker Nicolas Anelka saw Bolton defeat Manchester City 2-0 at Eastlands. Stuart Pearce's side ended the match with 10 men following a red card for Joey Barton.

Portsmouth came from behind to defeat Sheffield United 3-1 at Fratton Park. Rob Hulse gave The Blades the lead inside four minutes, but Harry Redknapp's team fought back strongly in the second half.

An own goal from Rob Kozluk levelled matters and headers from Sol Campbell and Noe Pamarot confirmed the win.

Andy Johnson helped inspire Everton to a 2-0 win at Reading. The striker opened the scoring for his team in the 14th minute and turned provider for James McFadden two minutes after half time.

Earlier in the day, West Ham had claimed a point in a goalless draw at Fulham to briefly move out of the bottom three - Boro's victory over Charlton ensured Alan Curbishley's side dropped back into the relegation zone.
