LONDON — Manchester City and Liverpool endured Premier League frustration on Saturday following Champions League setbacks.

Having thrown away a winning position to draw at CSKA Moscow in midweek, City was stunned 2-1 by West Ham. City's second loss of its title defense was the latest eye-catching scalp for West Ham, which is fourth in the standings.

City was dislodged from second place by surprise package Southampton, which beat Stoke 1-0.

Liverpool striker Mario Balotelli, whose performance and conduct was decried in Wednesday's 3-0 loss to Real Madrid, failed to score his first league goal for the club in a 0-0 draw with Hull.

But Arsenal hit back after last weekend's draw with Hull to beat Sunderland 2-0.

Crystal Palace threw away a 2-0 lead to draw 2-2 at West Bromwich Albion.
