LEICESTER CITY 1 NORWICH CITY 0

GOAL:-LEICESTER: ULLOA 89th.

Leonardo Ulloa's 89th-minute goal means Leicester remain two points clear at the top of the Barclays Premier League and deny Norwich a deserved draw. Ulloa slid in at the far post to convert Marc Albrighton's cross at the end of an otherwise poor Foxes display. Norwich had the better chances, Cameron Jerome heading wide and Nathan Redmond off target from distance.

SOUTHAMPTON 1 CHELSEA 2

GOALS:- LONG 42nd. CHELSEA: FABREGAS 75th; IVANOVIC 89th.

Chelsea came from behind to beat Southampton with a late Branislav Ivanovic header. Shane Long pounced on a Baba Rahman error before clipping a shot over keeper Thibaut Courtois. Diego Costa volleyed wide for Chelsea, but the visitors equalised when a Cesc Fabregas cross crept in. Chelsea finished strongly and Ivanovic headed in from a Willian corner.

STOKE CITY 2 ASTON VILLA 1

GOALS:- STOKE: ARNAUTOVIC PEN 51st, 56th. VILLA: BACUNA 79th.

Marko Arnautovic's double gave Stoke a deserved victory as Aston Villa's slim hopes of avoiding relegation suffered another blow. The Austrian opened the scoring with a penalty after Ashley Westwood brought down Phil Bardsley. He set up his second with a looping header, which he then chested in. Leandro Bacuna's late goal gave Villa hope of an unlikely point, but the Barclays Premier League's bottom club remain eight points from safety.

WATFORD 0 AFC BOURNEMOUTH 0

Watford and Bournemouth both missed good chances as their contest at Vicarage Road finished goalless. Hornets' striker Odion Ighalo had the best of those opportunities when his header from eight yards sailed over the bar. He also fired over the bar from 12 yards from a quick free kick and forced Artur Boruc into an early save. The Cherries went close through Max Gradel, who made his first appearance since a ligament injury in August.

WEST BROMWICH ALBION 3

CRYSTAL PALACE 2

GOALS:- WBA: GARDNER 12th; DAWSON 20th; BERAHINO 31st. PALACE: WICKHAM 48th, 80th.

Saido Berahino scored his first Barclays Premier League goal since October as West Bromwich Albion held on to win against Crystal Palace. The Baggies forward scored a cushioned volley from Stephane Sessegnon's pass. That put the hosts in charge after Craig Gardner tucked in a rebound and Craig Dawson's header. Connor Wickham scored twice to make it a nervy ending, but Palace's winless league run now stretches to 10 games.

WEST HAM UNITED 1 SUNDERLAND 0

GOAL:- ANTONIO 30th.

Michail Antonio allowed West Ham to extend their unbeaten home run to 13 games with a win over Sunderland, who missed the opportunity to climb out of the relegation zone. Michail Antonio's first-half goal, his fifth in 15 starts for the club, proved the difference. The forward wove into the box and struck low into the bottom corner of Vito Mannone's goal.
