Arsenal consolidated its position in the Champions League places with a nervy 10 win at Fulham on Saturday, while Sunderland, Stoke and Norwich grabbed huge victories to boost their hopes of surviving relegation from the English Premier League.

Per Mertesacker's 43rdminute header proved enough for Arsenal to climb provisionally above Chelsea into third place, with its task made easier by Fulham midfielder Steve Sidwell's red card in the 12th at Craven Cottage. Arsenal also finished with 10 men after Olivier Giroud's late sendingoff.

Sixthplace Everton's hopes of reaching the top four nosedived by losing 10 at Sunderland, which climbed six points clear of the relegation zone thanks to christian louboutin outlet uk Stephane Sessegnon's winner on the stroke of halftime.

With Stoke beating Queens Park Rangers 20 and Norwich overcoming Reading 21, the final relegation berth looks to be between Aston Villa and Wigan, which lost 20 at West Ham to stay third from bottom.

Villa visits Manchester United on Monday, and a win for Paul Lambert's side at Old Trafford will finally condemn QPR and Reading to the drop. The doomed pair is 10 points off safety with four games remaining.

In Saturday's other matches, Newcastle earned a point in its fight for survival with a 11 draw at West Bromwich Albion and Swansea drew 00 at home to Southampton, continuing its struggles since winning the League Cup at the end of February.

With Chelsea and fifthplace Tottenham not in action until Sunday, Arsenal didn't waste a chance to put pressure on its London rivals.

Arsene Wenger's team made heavy work of it, though, with Fulham having more shots at goal and dominating much of the second half despite being down to 10 men for 78 minutes after Steve Sidwell's studsfirst christian louboutin uk lunge at Mikel Arteta. It was Sidwell's first game back from a threematch ban.

Mertesacker's goal, from close range after centraldefensive partner Laurent Koscielny headed Theo Walcott's free kick across the face of goal, failed to liven up a strangely subdued Arsenal and there were some tense moments at the end especially after Giroud's red card in the 90th for a tackle similar to Sidwell's.

Branislav Ivanovic scored with an injury time header on Wednesday to give Chelsea a 21 win over Benfica in the Europa League final and secure the club's second European title in as many seasons after winning last year's Champions League. Here's a list of things you cheap christian louboutin shoes uk need to know, which louboutin uk we'll update throughout the day.
