BURNLEY 2 QUEENS PARK

RANGERS 1

GOALS:- BURNLEY: ARFIELD 12th; INGS 37th. QPR: AUSTIN PEN 37th.

Struggling Queens Park Rangers' poor away form continued against relegation rivals Burnley, who made it 10 defeats in 10 away games this season for Harry Redknapp's side - a new Premier League record. All three goals came before half-time, with Charlie Austin's penalty cancelling out Scott Arfield's fine solo goal for the hosts before Danny Ings grabbed the winner.

CHELSEA 2 NEWCASTLE

UNITED 0

GOALS:- CHELSEA: OSCAR 43rd; COSTA 59th.

Chelsea claimed a record 10th straight home league win to move two points clear of Manchester City at the top of the Barclays Premier League. Oscar scored from eight yards to give the home side the lead before Diego Costa rounded off a wonderful team move with a low strike.

CRYSTAL PALACE 2 TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR 1

GOALS:- PALACE: GAYLE PEN 69th; PUNCHEON 80th. TOTTENHAM: KANE 49th.

Alan Pardew celebrated his first Barclays Premier League game in charge of Crystal Palace with a dramatic win. Harry Kane's 18th goal of the season gave the visitors the lead, but Palace drew level through Dwight Gayle's penalty, and Jason Puncheon grabbed a late winner to spark wild celebrations at Selhurst Park.

EVERTON 1 MANCHESTER CITY 1

GOALS:- EVERTON: NAISMITH 78th. CITY: FERNANDINHO 74th.

Manchester City lost ground to Chelsea in the Barclays Premier League title race as Everton came from behind to earn a point against the champions at Goodison Park. Fernandinho's goal, with 16 minutes left, looked to have condemned Roberto Martinez's side to their fifth successive league defeat before Steven Naismith's glancing header put them level.

LEICESTER CITY 1 ASTON

VILLA 0

GOAL:- LEICESTER: KONCHESKY 45th.

Bottom side Leicester City boosted their survival hopes with a second home Premier League win of the season against fellow strugglers Aston Villa. Leicester striker David Nugent shot wide when through on goal early on. Nugent, the club's top scorer last season, hit the bar before Paul Konchesky volleyed in from 18 yards.

SUNDERLAND 0 LIVERPOOL 1

GOAL:- LIVERPOOL: MARKOVIC 8th.

Liverpool's challenge for a top-four spot continued to gather with a third win in four league games against 10-man Sunderland. Lazar Markovic found the target to put the visitors in front. A volley from the Serb also hit the crossbar, while Sunderland had Liam Bridcutt sent off for two bookings.

SWANSEA CITY 1 WEST HAM UNITED 1

GOALS:- SWANSEA: NOBLE OG 74th. WEST HAM: CARROLL 43rd.

Bafetimbi Gomis, Swansea's French striker, celebrated the Welsh club's equaliser by lifting the French national flag in honour of those who died last week in the country. Andy Carroll floated a precise shot into the top corner just before the break, but Marvin Emnes sparked Swansea into life, and Mark Noble could only divert Gomis' header into his own net as the tide turned.

WEST BROMWICH ALBION 1 HULL CITY 0

GOAL:- WBA: BERAHINO 78th.

Tony Pulis won his first Barclays Premier League match as West Bromwich Albion manager as Saido Berahino netted from 12 yards from an indirect free-kick after Hull goalkeeper Allan McGregor picked up Ahmed Elmohamady's back pass. Hull created few chances after strikers Nikica Jelavic and Abel Hernandez both suffered first-half injuries.
