London: Andre Schuerrle's hat trick sent Chelsea four points clear at the top of the English Premier League with a 3-1 victory at Fulham, capitalizing on Arsenal losing at Stoke on Saturday.

Chelsea took until the second half to trouble the league's bottom team, but Schuerrle then ripped through the defense with ease at Craven Cottage to keep Jose Mourinho's side on track for the title.

Having not won on seven previous visits to Stoke, Arsenal came unstuck again as Jonathan Walters clinched a 1-0 victory from the penalty spot. Liverpool moved ahead of Arsenal on goal difference into second by winning 3-0 at Southampton in the late game.
