Chelsea maintained their superb start to the season with a 2-0 win over Stoke on Saturday that kept the Premier League champions on top of the table.
Carlo Ancelotti's side have made a flying start to the season, romping to successive 6-0 wins over West Brom and Wigan, and Stoke were unable to halt their momentum at Stamford Bridge.
Florent Malouda struck in the first half and Didier Drogba converted a late penalty to extend Chelsea's 100 percent start.
Frank Lampard wasted a chance to give Chelsea an early lead when his penalty was saved by Thomas Sorensen after Ryan Shawcross fouled Malouda.
Lampard's miss didn't hinder Chelsea for long as France winger Malouda opened the scoring in the 32nd minute with a fine strike from John Terry's pass.
Unlike Chelsea's previous two opponents, Stoke refused to cave in and Glenn Whelan was close to snatching an equaliser after half-time when his shot hit the crossbar.
But Ivory Coast striker Drogba drove home a 77th minute spot-kick after Sorensen fouled Nicolas Anelka.
Tottenham crashed back down to earth after their European exploits as Hugo Rodallega gave Wigan a shock 1-0 win at White Hart Lane.
Harry Redknapp's team had qualified for the main draw of the Champions League for the first time in nearly 50 years thanks to their midweek win over Young Boys.
But they seemed to be suffering a hangover from that result as Rodallega fired home a deflected effort from Hendry Thomas's pass in the 80th minute to seal the points.
It was Wigan's first goal of the season after two successive heavy defeats and went some way to avenging last season's 9-1 defeat in the corresponding fixture.
Earlier, Andrei Arshavin's second-half winner gave Arsenal a 2-1 victory at Blackburn.
Arsene Wenger had this week bemoaned Blackburn's aggressive tactics in Arsenal's 2-1 defeat to Rovers in May and claimed Sam Allardyce's team deliberately tried to turn the clash against the Gunners into a "rugby" match.
Allardyce responded to that jibe by describing Arsenal's title winning teams as some of the dirtiest in the country, but it was Wenger's Arsenal who had the last laugh thanks to Arshavin.
Theo Walcott had put Arsenal ahead in the 20th minute with a low finish.
Mame Diouf, on loan from Manchester United, equalised for Blackburn seven minutes later after El Hadji Diouf out-paced new Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny.
But Russia winger Arshavin struck in the 51st minute after Bacary Sagna's strong run down the right.
Andy Carroll underlined his growing reputation with Newcastle's equaliser in their 1-1 draw at Wolves.
Chris Hughton's Newcastle had scored six against Aston Villa last weekend, but they fell behind at Molineux in the 43rd minute when Sylvan Ebanks-Blake converted Jelle van Damme's pass.
England Under-21 striker Carroll, the hat-trick hero of that Villa demolition, netted Newcastle's equaliser in the 62nd minute with a powerful header from Joey Barton's free-kick.
Fulham rescued a 2-2 draw against Blackpool as Dickson Etuhu's late equaliser denied the hosts a win in their first top-flight game at Bloomfield Road for 39 years.
Moussa Dembele provided Fulham's opener as he curled a cross to Bobby Zamora and the England striker rose to head home from close-range.
Blackpool levelled in the 71st minute when a shot from Luke Varney was diverted into his own net by Fulham defender John Pantsil.
Then Varney, signed on a season-long loan from Derby this week, clipped home a cool finish in the 76th minute.
But Nigeria midfielder Etuhu held his nerve to take Dembele's pass and chip past Blackpool Matthew Gilks in the 87th minute.
