LONDON, Dec 16 (Xinhua) --

Liverpool leapfrogged to the third place of the Premiership table on Saturday with a 3-0 win at Charlton, while Arsenal were held to a 2-2 draw by visiting Portsmouth.

Xabi Alonso scored an early penalty and Craig Bellamy and captian Steven Gerrard found net, giving Liverpool an easy victory over a Charlton side rooted in the relegation zone.

With the third consecutive high-scoring league win, Liverpool moved past Arsenal on 31 points to the third place.

Nigeria striker Obafemi Martins scored a double for Newcastle United as they chalked up a 2-1 home win over bottom club Watford.

Striker David Bentley got a late winner as Blackburn Rovers won 2-1 at Reading and Sheffield United beat Wigan Athletic 1-0 away.

Despite another big victory, after 4-0 routs of Wigan and Fulham, Liverpool are still well trailing champions Chelsea (39) and leaders Manchester United (44), who both play on Sunday.

After four 3-0 wins and four 1-1 draws, Arsenal fought back from the brink of a first home league defeat at their new Emirates Stadium.

Togo striker Emmanuel Adebayor scored in the 58th minute, just three minutes after replacing Jeremy Aliadiere, when he sidefooted in a good ball from teenager Theo Walcott.

Arsenal levelled two minutes later when a deflected Adebayor cross found its way to Walcott and his ball into the area was steered home by Brazilian midfielder Gilberto.
