BURNLEY 0

SWANSEA CITY 1

GOALS:- SWANSEA: TRIPPIER OG 64th

Swansea moved up to eighth in the Barclays Premier League table after a narrow victory over struggling Burnley. They broke the deadlock in the second half when Kieran Trippier scored an own goal in attempting to clear. Ashley Barnes wasted the best chance of the first half, striking at Swansea's Lukasz Fabianski from close range.

MANCHESTER UNITED 2

SUNDERLAND 0

GOALS:- UNITED: ROONEY PEN 66th, 84th

Wayne Rooney's penalty helped Manchester United beat Sunderland after the visitors' Wes Brown was sent off in bizarre circumstances at Old Trafford. Rooney scored after a foul on Radamel Falcao, for which Brown was dismissed and not John O'Shea, despite protests from the visitors. United added a second when Rooney headed in after Adnan Januzaj's shot was parried into his path.

NEWCASTLE UNITED 1

ASTON VILLA 0

GOAL:- NEWCASTLE: CISSE 37th

Papiss Cisse scored his 11th goal of the season to give Newcastle manager John Carver his first home win and leave Aston Villa in the bottom three. Senegal striker Cisse fired a low shot beyond Brad Guzan from eight yards after Daryl Janmaat's cross. Tom Cleverley missed Villa's best chance, before Ayoze Perez hit the post with a header for Newcastle.

STOKE CITY 1

HULL CITY 0

GOAL:- STOKE: CROUCH 71st

Substitute Peter Crouch made an instant impact to give Stoke victory over Hull. Crouch had only been on the pitch for a minute in the second half when he nodded home Charlie Adam's deep cross for his fourth goal in as many games. Stoke's victory was soured by a calf injury to Stephen Ireland, which manager Mark Hughes said needed between 12 and 15 stitches and will keep him out for a long time.

WEST BROMWICH ALBION 1

SOUTHAMPTON 0

GOAL:- WBA: BERAHINO 2nd

West Brom took another big step towards Premier League survival as Saido Berahino's strike proved enough to beat Champions League-chasing Southampton. Berahino scored after just 71 seconds at The Hawthorns when he rifled in from Maya Yoshida's headed clearance. Graziano Pelle squandered Southampton's best chance when he failed to tap in Ryan Bertrand's excellent low cross.

WEST HAM UNITED 1

CRYSTAL PALACE 3

GOALS:- WEST HAM: VALENCIA 76th. PALACE: MURRAY 41st, 63rd; DANN 51st.

Glenn Murray scored twice and was sent off as Crystal Palace recorded an excellent win over West Ham. Murray put Palace ahead four minutes before the break when Aaron Cresswell sliced his header into the Hammers' net. Scott Dann doubled Palace's lead before Murray added another. Murray was sent off after charging into Winston Reid for a second booking, before Enner Valencia's consolation.
