Most of the Premier League have now completed six fixtures, and Chelsea are three points clear at the top of the table. Here's a look at the action from this past weekend (and Monday), along with links to the discussions about the fixtures from SB Nation's team sites where available. As a reminder, please don't troll other communities if you decide to comment on their threads.

Arsenal 1 : 2 Chelsea: We've had plenty of discussion about this game here at We Ain't Got No History, and so did the folks over at The Short Fuse. Go check it out, but remember to play nice.

Sunderland 1 : 0 Wigan: Sunderland are one of the three clubs in the Premier League that are still undefeated, but the victory over Wigan was their first of the season. Head over to The Roker Report for reaction from the winning side, and Pie Eaters Footie has a match report from the losing perspective.

Stoke 2 : 0 Swansea: SB Nation doesn't have a site dedicated to either of these clubs, so no links for you! Stoke managed to record their first victory of the season in this clash of very different styles of play.

Reading 2 : 2 Newcastle United: Reading fans should feel a bit hard done by, as they again had a crucial incorrect call cost them points. The folks over at The Tilehurst End are taking it well, while the fans over at Coming Home Newcastle were not happy with the performance at all.

Norwich 2 : 5 Liverpool: My selection of Liverpool to finish fourth this season was looking pretty stupid for most of the season, but they've looked much better lately. After crushing Norwich on the weekend, Liverpool are now sitting outside of the relegation zone. The Liverpool Offside had a storystream devoted to the game, and Anfield Asylum had a match report of their own.

Fulham 1 : 2 Manchester City: Fulham were just minutes away from taking yet more points off of the defending champions, but City scored a late winner to see them remain only four points off the early pace that Chelsea have been setting. Bitter & Blue had some thoughts on the win, and Cottagers Confidential had the losing perspective.

Everton 3 : 1 Southampton: Everton's victory over Southampton has them sitting alone in second place, and they are the only club that could possibly catch Chelsea at the top of the table before the international break. Royal Blue Mersey has you covered for all things Everton.

Manchester United 2 : 3 Tottenham: What a game this one was. United looked absolutely terrible defensively, but Tottenham made it interesting with a typically Villas Boas job of closing the game out. The Busby Babe and Cartilage Free Captain have you covered for this thriller.

Aston Villa 1 : 1 West Bromwich Albion: Most Chelsea fans were watching this game due to the presence of Romelu Lukaku, and it was a thoroughly enjoyable 1-1 draw. 7500 To Holte has a Villa perspective on the draw.

QPR 1 : 2 West Ham: We don't have a SB Nation community for either of these clubs either, but luckily Graham recapped all of the action from this game. The loss for QPR sees them at the bottom of the table, and West Ham has jumped ahead of Arsenal into seventh with the win.
