Behind them in second place is Southampton who four wins on the trot with a 2-1 result over QPR at St Mary's Stadium.
It took a piece of magic from summer signing Graziano Pelle to win the game for Ronald Koeman's side in the 68th minute as the south coast club stayed a game in arrears of early-season title favourites Chelsea.
Earlier on Saturday, Liverpool and Everton shared the honours in a 1-1 draw in the Merseyside derby when Phil Jagielka scored a blinder in injury time to cancel out Steven Gerrard's 65th-minute free-kick.
Elsewhere, Crystal Palace made it two wins on the trot by beating Leicester City 2-0 courtesy of second-half goals from Fraizer Campbell and Mile Jedinak while Sunderland and Swansea City played out a 0-0 draw.
Reigning champions Manchester City overcame a few scares to eventually get the better of Hull City 4-2 with Edin Dzeko netting a double as Manchester United overcame a second-half red card to Wayne Rooney to return to the winners list with a narrow 2-1 triumph over West Ham United.
