The Barclays Premier League table didn't see any major changes at the top in Week 10, but Saturday's action provided the stage for some of the best clubs in the world to make a statement. 

Arsenal tightened its grip atop the table by picking up its fifth win in its last six matches. This time, the Gunners found a way to shut out Liverpool, which remains in the top three despite the loss. 

Manchester City scored the most emphatic victory of the day. Manuel Pellegrini's squad picked up its sixth win on the season and moved to No. 1 in goal differential on the strength of a 7-0 blowout over Norwich City. 

Here's a look at all the results from around the league on Saturday, the latest standings and the most standout performances from the day:

Newcastle Picks Up Huge Win at Home over Chelsea

With an unbeaten record in the month of October and a top-three spot on the table, Chelsea figured to be a favorite to handle Newcastle. Instead, the opportunistic Magpies turned the match into one of their finest hours on the pitch in this campaign. 

Sparked by a surprise goal from Yoan Gouffran at the 68-minute mark, Newcastle was able to put the game away on this goal from Loic Remy in the closing minutes of the second half:

The Blues were able to control the pace of the match throughout, but it wasn't enough to pull off the win on the road. Chelsea dominated the time of possession battle 69 percent to 31 percent, but its inability to score on 13 shots has to be a concern going forward. 


Manchester United Isn't Fazed by Fulham Crowd

It wasn't a good day to be on the road, but Manchester United proved to be the exception. The Red Devils were the only club to win away from home with a 3-1 victory over Fulham. 

Antonio Valencia, Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney each contributed first-half goals as United ran out to a 3-0 lead in the first 22 minutes. From there, things evened out a bit. Fulham created 14 shots to United's 10, but only Alexander Kacaniklic was able to find the net 68 minutes into the contest. 

The win didn't move United up the table. The Red Devils still sit at No. 8 overall. But it did prove just how quickly RVP and Rooney can put a match out of reach when they are in top form. 


Arsenal Proves to be Top Team in EPL with Win over Liverpool

There's no question that the match between Arsenal and Liverpool was the one to watch this weekend. The two teams were separated by just two points atop the table and coming off of impressive victories in Week 9. 

By the same token, Arsenal's 2-0 win has to be the most impressive performance of the week. 

Arsenal was able to maintain a slight 54-46 possession advantage and placed seven of 12 shot attempts on target to score the shutout victory. Santi Cazorla opened up the 1-0 advantage in the first half with a well-timed header off of a Bacary Sagna cross. 

Aaron Ramsey put the game out of reach in the second 45 minutes with a goal off of a pass from Mesut Ozil. With yet another win, the Gunners are now a full five points ahead of Chelsea and Liverpool for the Premier League lead.
