Cape Town - Chelsea's dream of going the season unbeaten was crushed at St James' Park as a brace from Senegal striker Papiss Cisse handed Newcastle all three points.

Both Liverpool and Tottenham Hostpur's poor run of form continued as the two Champions League spot contenders failed to score on Saturday and were forced to settle for a share of the points with Sunderland and Crystal Palace respectively. 

Manchester City managed to make up ground on Chelsea as a Yaya Toure penalty separated the Sky Blues from the blue of Everton. The win came at quite a cost for the defending English Premiership champions as Sergio Aguero limped off early in the game. 

Manchester United somehow managed to overcome Southampton in Monday night's game. Robin Van Persie netted either side of Graziano Pelle's lashed in strike to send the Red Devils into third position.

1. Allan McGregor (Hull City)

2. Mauricio Isla (QPR)

3. Glen Johnson (Liverpool)

4. Alan Hutton (Aston Villa)
