CHELSEA 1

NORWICH CITY 0

GOALS:-CHELSEA: COSTA 64.

JosÈ Mourinho returned to Chelsea's bench to see his side claim a first win in four Barclays Premier League games. Mourinho, banned from attending the Blues' last game, was frustrated for more than an hour by the stubborn Canaries. But the breakthrough came when Diego Costa finished off Cesc Fabregas's quickly taken free kick.

EVERTON 4

ASTON VILLA 0

GOALS:-EVERTON: BARKLEY 17, 42; LUKAKU 28, 59.

Aston Villa remain anchored to the bottom of the Barclays Premier League after a dreadful display at Goodison Park. It was Villa's heaviest defeat at Goodison since 1982, when they lost 5-0. Everton rose to seventh thanks to two goals apiece from Ross Barkley and Romelu Lukaku. In between Barkley's two tap-ins, Lukaku claimed his 50th goal in the Premier League, then completed the rout.

MANCHESTER CITY 1

LIVERPOOL 4

GOALS:-CITY: AG¸ERO 44. LIVERPOOL: MANGALA OG 7; COUTINHO 23; FIRMINO 32; SKRTEL 81.

Manchester City squandered the chance to return to the top of the Barclays Premier League as Liverpool's improvement under new boss Jurgen Klopp continued. After Eliaquim Mangala's early own goal, Liverpool stormed on to a three-goal lead thanks to Philippe Coutinho and Roberto Firmino. The returning Sergio Ag¸ero replied for City, but Martin Skrtel completed the rout.

NEWCASTLE UNITED 0

LEICESTER CITY 3

GOALS:-LEICESTER: VARDY 45; ULLOA 62; OKAZAKI 83.

Jamie Vardy equalled the Barclays Premier League record for scoring in 10 successive games as Leicester took advantage of defeats for Arsenal and Manchester City to go top of the table. Vardy converted Leonardo Ulloa's pass for his 13th goal of the season. Ulloa added the second, then Shinji Okazaki bundled in the Foxes' third goal.

SOUTHAMPTON 0

STOKE CITY 1

GOAL:-STOKE: KRKIC 10.

Stoke claimed their fifth win in seven games in the Barclays Premier League thanks to Bojan Krkic's early strike. The Spaniard claimed the match winner with a cunning free kick from Erik Pieters' clever cross from the left flank. Stoke had further chances to score but held on to hand Saints only their third defeat of the season.

SWANSEA CITY 2

AFC BOURNEMOUTH 2

GOALS:-SWANSEA: AYEW 28; SHELVEY PEN 39. BOURNEMOUTH: KING 10; GOSLING 26.

Swansea City fought back from 2-0 down to claim a thrilling draw against Bournemouth. Joshua King and Dan Gosling put the visitors in control to increase the pressure on Swansea

manager Garry Monk. Andre Ayew's backheel and Jonjo Shelvey's penalty brought Swansea level at the end of a breathless first half.

WEST BROMWICH ALBION 2

ARSENAL 1

GOALS:-WBA: MORRISON 35; ARTETA OG 40. ARSENAL: GIROUD 28.

Arsenal squandered the chance to go top of the Barclays Premier League after throwing away the lead and missing a penalty. Olivier Giroud gave the Gunners the advantage, but James Morrison replied before Mikel Arteta diverted James McClean's cross into his own net. Santi Cazorla had the chance to level, but sent his spot kick high over the Albion crossbar.

TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR 4

WEST HAM UNITED 1

GOALS:-TOTTENHAM: KANE 23, 50; ALDERWIRELD 33; WALKER 83. WEST HAM: LANZINI 87.

The England striker opened the scoring, and after Toby Alderweireld added a second, Kane made it 3-0. Kyle Walker claimed a fourth, with West Ham replying late on through Manuel Lanzini.
