West Ham United v Chelsea 20:00

The chance to move into the top four was missed by Manchester United after a 1-1 draw with Bournemouth – who ended a four game losing run – at Old Trafford. Zlatan Ibrahimovic saw a penalty saved that would have secured the points.

Leicester came from a goal down to beat Hull – as Craig Shakespeare made it back-to-back wins as caretaker boss – 3-1 at the King Power Stadium. The Foxes are now five points above the relegation zone with City remaining second bottom but four points from safety.

A positive reaction to a heavy defeat in the last game was seen when Stoke – to return to ninth – recorded a 2-0 win over Middlesbrough. Defeat for Boro – who haven’t won in 10 – saw them drop into the bottom three.

The fourth Swansea win in six games was secured by an added time goal. This recorded the Swans a 3-2 victory over Burnley – who have now gone four without a win – to open up a five point lead on the relegation zone.

Watford saw a lead lost as Southampton – responding to the League Cup final defeat – ran out 4-3 winners at Vicarage Road to take the Saints up to 10th. This defeat for the Hornets – an added time third wasn’t anything more than a consoldation – extended the winless run to three.

Losing for a first time in six saw West Brom’s advantage over those chasing down their eighth place position close the gap. Crystal Palace’s 2-0 win at the Hawthorns made it back-to-back victories for Palace to move them ahead of Middlesbrough and out of the relegation zone.

The Liverpool Champions League hopes were improved after a 3-1 win over rivals Arsenal to take the Reds up to third. This Gunners defeat was a third in the last four dropping them down to fifth.

A Tottenham win over Everton on Sunday closed the gap on leaders Chelsea – who play on Monday night – to seven points. Spurs’ 3-2 victory – with both teams scoring in added time – at White Hart Lane saw the Toffees beaten for the first time in 10 Premier League games.

Sunderland remain at the foot of the Premier League – and are now five points from safety – after a 2-0 defeat against Manchester City – who moved back up to fourth with a third straight win – at the Stadium of Light.
