9:32 am on 31 August 2009

Chelsea are top of English football's Premier League after the fourth weekend's results, but only by goal difference from fellow London high fliers Tottenham Hotspur.

The two Manchester clubs take up places three and four, similarly separated only by the "goals for" column, with champions United edging the big spending City.

Man City won 1-0 at Portsmouth to maintain their perfect record, while Aston Villa have moved up to eighth after a 2-0 victory over Fulham.

Everton move off the bottom of the table after finally getting a win, 2-1 at home over Wigan Athletic - thanks to a 93rd minute penalty.
