AFC BOURNEMOUTH 3 EVERTON 3

GOALS:- BOURNEMOUTH: SMITH 80th; STANISLAS 87th, 90th. EVERTON: MORI 25th; LUKAKU 36th; BARKLEY 90th.

Junior Stanislas scored an equaliser in the eight minute of added time as Bournemouth came from behind twice to earn a point in an astonishing game at Vitality Stadium. Everton looked set for victory when goals from Ramiro Funes Mori and Romelu Lukaku put them 2-0 up at half-time. Adam Smith rifled in a sizzling strike from 25 yards and Stanislas converted Joshua King's cut-back to make it 2-2. Ross Barkley scored five minutes into added time, but Bournemouth responded through Stanislas' header.

ASTON VILLA 2 WATFORD 3

GOALS:-VILLA: RUCHARDS 41; AYEW 89. WATFORD: IGHALO 17; HUTTON OG 69; DEENEY 85.

Watford condemned bottom club Aston Villa to their 11th defeat in 14 Barclays Premier League games. Odion Ighalo poked home to give the visitors the lead, but Micah Richards' header levelled it before half-time. The Hornets lost goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes to a head injury, but Alan Hutton's own goal and Troy Deeney's bullet header put them in control. Jordan Ayew's shot found the corner to give Villa hope, but they could not equalise in 10 minutes of injury time.

CRYSTAL PALACE 5 NEWCASTLE UNITED 1

GOALS:- PALACE: McARTHUR 14th, 90th; BOLASIE 17th, 47th; ZAHA 41st. NEWCASTLE: CISSE 10th.

Alan Pardew enjoyed victory against his old club as Crystal Palace came from a goal down to trounce Newcastle. Striker Papiss Cisse opened the scoring for the visitors with a glancing free header from close range on 10 minutes. But Palace hit back quickly with two goals in three minutes through James McArthur's deflected effort and Yannick Bolasie's lashed finish. Wilfried Zaha volleyed a third with further Bolasie and McArthur strikes leaving Newcastle in the bottom three.

LEICESTER CITY 1 MANCHESTER UNITED 1

GOALS:- LEICESTER: VARDY 24th. UNITED: SCHWEINSTEIGER 45th.

Jamie Vardy wrote his name into Barclays Premier League history by scoring for the 11th successive game at King Power Stadium. Vardy went into this game hoping to eclipse former United striker Ruud van Nistelrooy's record, set across two seasons in 2003. And he savoured his moment in the 24th minute, running on to Christian Fuchs' pass to send a low finish. Bastian Schweinsteiger headed United's equaliser right on half-time.

MANCHESTER CITY 3 SOUTHAMPTON 1

GOALS:- CITY: DE BRUYNE 9th; DELPH 20th; KOLAROV 69th. SOUTHAMPTON: LONG 49th.

Manchester City returned to the top of the Barclays Premier League. Kevin de Bruyne gave City the lead and Fabian Delph added the home side's second with a deflected shot. But Shane Long nodded in to give Saints hope. Long had a penalty appeal turned down before Aleksandar Kolarov fired in City's third with an angled strike. Fernandinho appeared to block Long's shot with his arm after City keeper Willy Caballero had palmed away an effort from Dusan Tadic.

SUNDERLAND 2 STOKE CITY 0

GOALS:- SUNDERLAND: VAN ANHOLT 82nd; WATMORE 84th.

Sunderland lifted themselves out of the relegation zone with just their third Barclays Premier League win of the season, as two late goals saw off 10-man Stoke. The Potters had held firm despite Ryan Shawcross being sent off, but Patrick van Aanholt and Duncan Watmore struck with two goals in the last 10 minutes. Shawcross was dismissed for a second yellow after a foul on Watmore, who replaced the injured Jermain Defoe.
