GOALS:- CHELSEA: FABREGAS 45th, PEN 89th. WEST HAM: LANZINI 17th; CARROLL 61st.

West Ham were denied of a top-four place after Cesc Fabregas scored a free kick and a late penalty for Chelsea. Manuel Lanzini curled a 25-yarder to give the Hammers the lead. Fabregas' superb set piece brought Chelsea back into the game, but substitute Andy Carroll looked to have won it for West Ham, before Fabregas snatched a point after Michail Antonio fouled Ruben Loftus-Cheek.

CRYSTAL PALACE 0 LEICESTER CITY 1

GOAL:- LEICESTER: MAHREZ 34th.

Leicester City moved eight points clear at the top of the Barclays Premier League on Saturday after Riyad Mahrez's goal pushed the Foxes closer to the title.

Damien Delaney hit the bar for Crystal Palace in injury time, but the Foxes held out to clinch another vital win.

EVERTON 0 ARSENAL 2

GOALS:- ARSENAL: WELBECK 7th; IWOBI 42nd.

Arsenal responded to their exits from both the Champions League and FA Cup with a comfortable victory over Everton at Goodison Park.

On 42 minutes, teenager Alex Iwobi marked his maiden Premier League start with a first goal for the club.

SWANSEA CITY 1 ASTON VILLA 0

GOAL:- SWANSEA: FERNANDEZ 53rd.

Swansea took a significant stride to securing Premier League survival as they ground out a win against bottom side Aston Villa. Villa dominated but failed to capitalise on a lethargic Swans display in a goalless first half. The visitors were made to pay for their profligacy early in the second when Federico Fernandez bundled in.

WATFORD 1 STOKE CITY 2

GOALS:- WATFORD: DEENEY 86th. STOKE: WALTERS 18th; JOSELU 51st.

Stoke City secured a comfortable win at Watford, thanks to goals from Jon Walters and Joselu. After a bright start from the hosts, Mark Hughes' side dominated possession and Walters turned home Phil Bardsley's right-wing cross. Joselu scored a second for the visitors, while Troy Deeney replied for Watford late on.

WEST BROMWICH ALBION 0 NORWICH CITY 1

GOAL:- NORWICH: BRADY 50th.

Robbie Brady earned Norwich secured their first Barclays Premier League win of 2016 to move out of the bottom three with victory at West Bromwich Albion on Saturday. After a turgid first half, Brady put the away side ahead with the game's only shot on target. West Brom went close through Claudio Yacob's first-half drive, before Stephane Sessegnon wasted their best chance.
