The brilliant win against Manchester City was swiftly forgotten as Leicester’s (Premier League) season of woe continued. AFC Bournemouth recovered a weekend defeat to win 1-0 at Dean Court to move up to 8th, at the time.

Arsenal not only missed the chance to return to the summit on Tuesday they handed the advantage to Chelsea top open up a six point lead if they won on the Wednesday – the Gunners had been one up but an Everton comeback saw a 2-1 win at Goodison Park. After five games without a win this was very much needed by the Toffees.

Chelsea took advantage of the slip by Arsenal by recording a 10th straight win on Wednesday. The Blues saw off struggling Sunderland 1-0 at the Stadium of Light to move six points clear at the top.

A 3-0 win at Middlesbrough saw Liverpool move up to 2nd, above Arsenal on goal difference. This Riverside Stadium defeat saw Boro drop to 17th with them just three points from safety.

West Ham’s first win in seven allowed them to move away from relegation trouble. Burnley’s away form continues to let the Clarets down after the 1-0 defeat at the London Stadium. However, Sean Dyche’s side remain in 13th.

A late winner by Manchester United saw them go away from Selhurst Park with the points. The game was set to end in a draw until Crystal Palace conceded a goal two minutes from time to slip to a 2-1 defeat.

Manchester City ended their two game losing run with a 2-0 win at the Etihad Stadium against Watford. The Hornets slipped down the congested table for clubs battling from 7th-12th places to 11th as a result.

It was goalless at the Bet365 stadium between Stoke and Southampton – a result that would have suited the visiting Saint more of course.

Tottenham’s bid for a top four place was boosted as they recovered from a weekend defeat to see of relegation-threatened Hull at White Hart Lane. City’s winless run was extended to five after this 3-0 defeat though, which keeps them second-bottom.

The club above Hull are Swansea. However, the Swans couldn’t follow up a win at the weekend with another at the Hawthorns as West Brom ran out 3-1 victors to climb up to 7th.
