Premier League leaders Chelsea left it late as Willian netted an 89th-minute winner to beat Everton 1-0 yesterday and maintain their seven-point advantage over Manchester City, which won 4-1 at Stoke.

Sergio Aguero scored twice to end City's four-game winless run. James Milner and Samir Nasri also scored for City, while Peter Crouch's header had brought Stoke level before half-time.

Manchester United remain five points behind neighbours City, but rose to third with an unconvincing 3-1 victory over Burnley. Chris Smalling scored twice after replacing the injured Phil Jones. Danny Ings cut the deficit, but Robin van Persie scored a late penalty.

Southampton dropped to fourth after being held 0-0 by 10-man West Ham, while Crystal Palace drew 1-1 with Newcastle. West Bromwich Albion climbed four points clear of the relegation zone by beating Swansea 2-0.
