Premier League: Wins for Manchester United, Arsenal, Liverpool, QPR and West Ham.


Manchester United still sit in fourth position in the Premier League table after the Reds beat the Tigers 3-0 at Old Trafford.

Chris Smalling and United captain Wayne Rooney scored in the first half to give Van Gaal's side the lead in the first-half and Robin van Persie scored the third [66th minute] as the Dutchman finished off an assist from Ander Herrera who replaced injured Di Maria. The 3-0 win over Hull City gave the Red Devils their third successive victory for the first time under Louis van Gaal.

At the Hawthorns earlier in the day, Arsene Wenger's side grabbed a 1-0 win over West Brom thanks to Danny Welbeck, as the 24-year-old England international headed home Santi Carzola's [man-of-the-match] assist and the result leaves West Brom close to the relegation zone with 13 points.

At Loftus Road, it was a thrilling game with 5 goals. QPR beat Leicester City 3-2 and the win took them out of the bottom of the Premier League table. Former Inter Milan and Real Madrid midfielder Esteban Cambiasso scored the opener but an own goal from the Foxes Wes Morgan levelled the score. Redknapp's summer signing Leroy Fer increased the deficit for QPR and Jeffrey Schlupp equalised for Leicester City making it 2-2, before a close range header from the Hoops striker Charlie Austin sealed the win.

Meanwhile, at Upton Park, West Ham full-back Aaron Cresswell found the net in the 56th minute to give Sam Allardye's side the win over Newcastle, stopping Alan Pardew's run of 6 consecutive wins.

Liverpool beat Stoke City 1-0 at Anfield giving them their first win in four Premier League games.

And, Burnley drew 1-1 with Aston Villa at Turf Moor. Joe Cole broke the deadlock for Paul Lambert's side but the Clarets did enough to seal a point as Danny Ings scored a late penalty for the home side.

Crystal Palace secured a point as well at Swansea as Jedinak scored a penalty making it 1-1 after Bony scored the first goal of the match.

Jose Mourinho's men weren’t able to beat Sunderland as many predicted but they maintain their unbeaten run in the league and still top the table.

Guus Poyet's men did really well as they showed their composure and where well organised as the match ended 0-0 at the Stadium of Light.
