As Tottenham weren’t in action until Sunday – with Manchester City and Arsenal also not playing over the weekend – Chelsea’s 3-1 win over Swansea saw the Blues’ lead at the top of the Premier League extended. The Swans’ second defeat in three means they are just three points clear of trouble.

Crystal Palace – after back-to-back defeats – recorded a 1-0 win over Middlesbrough – who haven’t won in 10 – at Selhurst Park to draw level with Boro. Both are out of the relegation zone with Palace above the

The Everton unbeaten run was extended – closing to within four points of Manchester United in sixth – to nine with a 2-0 win over Sunderland. This defeat at Goodison Park for David Moyes against a former side kept the Black Cats bottom of the league.

A chance to move out of the relegation zone was missed by Hull – who remain second bottom – when the Tigers were held to a 1-1 draw by Burnley. The Clarets’ rare away point kept them well placed to stay in the Premier League if not finish within the top 10.

West Brom extended their unbeaten run to five – with a third win – when coming from behind to beat struggling Bournemouth 2-1. This defeat at the Hawthorns was a fourth in a row – fifth in six – for the Cherries.

Having been pegged back Watford had to be content with 1-1 draw against West Ham at Vicarage Road in the late kick off on Saturday. The 10 man Hammers extended an unbeaten run to three to keep a place in the top 10.

Tottenham’s first half blitz against Stoke saw them to a 4-0 win at White Hart Lane on Sunday. This win took Spurs up to 2nd and closed the gap on Chelsea to 10 points. The Potters remain in 10th despite a second defeat in three.
