    LONDON -- Chelsea took until the sixth minute of stoppage time to salvage a draw against West Bromwich Albion, while Liverpool and Southampton turned on the style with four-goal wins in the English Premier League on Saturday. Malik McDowell Seahawks Jersey . Luis Suarezs double powered Liverpool to a 4-0 victory over Fulham, and Southampton easily overcame Hull 4-1 to continue the south coast clubs impressive start to the season. Liverpool and Southampton sent Chelsea down to fourth place as the west London club was held to 2-2 at home. Goals from Shane Long and Stephane Sessegnon put West Brom on course for a first win at Chelsea in 35 years until Steven Reid was penalized for fouling Ramires in the fourth minute of stoppage time and Eden Hazard equalized from the penalty spot. Arsenal will finish the weekend top of the standings regardless of whether the north London club can win at Manchester United on Sunday, given its two-point lead over Liverpool. Chelsea is four points behind the front-runners, although it could have been worse for Jose Mourinho. The Portuguese managers 65-game unbeaten league home record at Chelsea was looking under threat until referee Andre Marriner pointed to the spot in stoppage time. Chelsea had gone in front through a moment of good fortune. Hazard cut in from the left and saw his shot parried by Boaz Myhill. West Brom defender Liam Ridgewell then dithered and remained static, leaving Samuel Etoo to score his third goal of the week. The second half began brightly for West Brom, with Long heading against the outside of the post and then finding the target on the hour. From Morgan Amalfitanos corner, Gareth McAuleys powerful header was pushed high into the air by Cech. As the ball came back down, Long rose to head it in. Eight minutes later, West Brom was in front -- as Ridgewell made up for the blunder that allowed Chelsea to go in front. After breaking down the left flank, Ridgewell fed Sessegnon, whose shot easily beat Cech. In front, but never comfortable, West Brom had to soak up sustained Chelsea pressure to protect the lead. "Our reaction could be die or fight for life," Mourinho said. "And our team fought for life." Fortune favoured Chelsea with the late penalty won by Ramires. "He started going down early, he started going down before the contact," said West Brom manager Steve Clarke, Mourinhos assistant at Chelsea during his first stint in charge from 2004-07. At Anfield, Fulham gifted Liverpool the lead when Fernando Amorebieta headed the ball inadvertently into his own goal in the 23rd minute after Steven Gerrard sent a free kick into the penalty area. Three minutes later there was another goal, from another header -- this time from a Liverpool player as defender Martin Skrtel met Gerrards corner. Suarez, who initially thought he diverted Amorebietas header into the goal, then did get on the scoresheet by slotting home in the 36th. The Uruguay striker took his tally to eight goals in six league matches since returning from a 10-game biting ban by wrapping up the win in the 54th after Gerrard turned provider again. Southampton is just a point behind Liverpool. Morgan Schneiderlin headed Southampton in front after 16 minutes against Hull after being set up by Adam Lallana, who then won a penalty after being brought down by goalkeeper Steve Harper. Rickie Lambert converted from the spot on the half hour, before Lallana scored a goal of his own seven minutes later, a fine solo effort after jinking through the defence. Yannick Sagbo pulled one back for Hull from distance early in the second half but Steven Davis completed the comfortable Southampton win in the 88th after meeting Nathaniel Clynes cross. At Villa Park, Aston Vilas four-game scoring drought ended when Leandro Bacuna and Libor Kozak clinched a 2-0 win over Cardiff. There were no goals, though, at Selhurst Park as bottom-place Crystal Palace held fifth-place Everton to end a seven-match losing run. Everton goalkeeper Tim Howard started despite hitting his head before the game when he walked into the wing mirror of the team bus. Norwich staged a second-half comeback to beat West Ham 3-1 and ease the immediate pressure on manager Chris Hughton. Norwich was booed off by its fans at halfltime at 1-0 down but was a much more cohesive unit after the break. Malik McDowell Womens Jersey . Radulov scored the lone goal in the shootout, and the Predators edged the Minnesota Wild 2-1 on Tuesday night to reach 100 points for the second time in three seasons and fourth in seven. Malik McDowell Youth Jersey . Louis and Ryan Kesler have demanded to be traded.Wayne Rooney insists he will play where he is picked under England interim manager Gareth Southgate. England face Malta on Saturday at Wembley in their first fixture since the departure of Sam Allardyce last week and the subsequent appointment of Southgate. Rooneys best position has divided opinion following his spell as a midfielder under Roy Hodgson during Euro 2016, with Allardyce even claiming it was not for me to say where the 30-year-old played following his one, and only, victory in charge against Slovakia in September.  But when asked about his potential position against Malta, Rooney said: I dont know, thats a question for Gareth. Its getting a bit tiring, the question of whether I am going to play as a striker, midfielder or number 10. I have answered that question many times, its the same answer. Ill play where the manager wants me to play, I dont pick myself and I have never picked myself for England.  Sam Allardyce was non-commital over Rooneys position in the England team I play to instructions and I am sure the instructions Gareth gives me, whether to play or not to play, are instructions I will try to do to the best of my ability.Rooney has endured a difficult start to the new Premier League season for Manchester United and has been left on the substitutes bench for the previous three matches by Jose Mourinho. England captain Wayne Rooney talks about being dropped from Manchester Uniteds starting team Of course, you want to play. As a football player you want to play, its my job. I lovve football and I love being involved in the team, he added. Nazair Jones Womens Jersey. Rooney has started from the substitutes bench in each of Manchester Uniteds last three matches Obviously, I am not starting at the moment at Manchester United, but I need to work hard to get back in the starting XI, which I am doing and when I get my chance I make sure that I take it. I am fully supportive of the team, the players and the manager of Manchester United. Of course, I want to be involved, but the most important thing is that we win. Watch NOW TV Watch Sky Sports for just £6.99. No contract. Allardyce left his post as England manager over allegations he discussed how to circumvent the Football Associations rules on player transfers while speaking to undercover Daily Telegraph reporters.Rooney did express sympathy for his former boss, but quickly turned the focus to the immediate future under Southgate and securing victories in the upcoming 2018 World Cup qualifiers, with England also travelling to face Slovenia next Tuesday. Its a shame, everyone could see how excited Sam was for the job. He had come in and showed that enthusiasm to the players, its a shame that it has happened and I am sure he deeply regrets it, Rooney said.  Allardyces reign as England manager lasted just 67 days That was a decision for the FA to take and, for us, we must concentrate on working with Gareth. Everyone seems fine and happy, we need to work in the training sessions before Saturday.We have got two games this week that we need to try and win, whether it was Gareth or Sam, they are games which we need to go and get six points from.If we do that, Gareth will be happy and well be happy. You can watch Englands tour of Bangladesh, plus Premier League football and the Japan Grand Prix on Sky Sports.
