In the early game, Man United heaped more misery on Norwich with a 1-0 win and here is what happened in the 3pm kick-offs.
Aston Villa 0-0 Newcastle
Newcastle dropped into the relegation zone when they could not beat the Premier League’s worst team. The Magpies are one point behind Sunderland, who have a game in hand after beatingChelsea, while Newcastle fans had their noses rubbed in it by the home support with chants of ‘You’re going down with the Villa’.
Bournemouth 1-1 West Brom
West Brom struck first through Salomon Rondon and led for most of the game until Matt Ritchie popped up to head in the equaliser with less than 10 minutes to go. West Brom also saw Craig Gardner’s first half penalty saved by Artur Boruc, who also palmed away the rebound.
Crystal Palace 2-1 Stoke
Palace came from 1-0 down against Stoke after Charlie Adam helped the visitors to a 1-0 half-time lead. Dwight Gayle equalised straight after the restart following some fancy footwork from Yannick Bolasie it was Gayle who also doubled the lead with just over 20 minutes to go.
Sunderland 3-2 Chelsea
In a match which saw John Terry sent off, Sunderland showed great fight to keep coming back against Chelsea at the Stadium of Light. Diego Costa opened the scoring, but a screamer from Wahbi Khazri levelled things only for Nemanja Matic to restore the lead on half-time. However, Fabio Borini and Jermain Defoe fired the hosts into a 3-2 lead and there were scremas of delight from the home crowd and players at the final whistle.
West Ham 1-4 Swansea
Despite some early West Ham pressure, Wayne Routledge and Andre Ayew scored within minutes of each other to earn Swansea a 2-0 half-time lead. Then five minutes after the restart, Moudou Barrow produced a lovely piece of skill to find himself room to cross to Ki Sung-yeung to make it 3-0. Lukasz Fabianski, wonderful throughout, was eventually beaten when Stephen Kingsley put the ball into his own net after he saved Michail Antonio’s header, but Bafetimbi Gomis made it 4-1 in stoppage time.
