That is all from us for now, but keep your eyes peeled as IBTimes UK brings you all the post-match fallout across the weekend.

We will also be back tomorrow to provide live coverage of Liverpool's trip to Watford. Until then, goodbye.


Much of the focus in the coming days will undoubtedly be on the Mourinho saga, Hiddink's arrival in west London and Louis van Gaal's increasingly precarious position. However, to ignore Leicester's phenomenal achievement of sitting top of the Premier League at Christmas would be an insult. Their form has been nothing short of remarkable and in Mahrez they unquestionably boast one of the league's most exciting attacking talents.

Can they really go all the way? The gap is now at five points, although that is likely to be reduced on Monday night as Arsenal host Manchester City.


And so ends a somewhat bizarre afternoon at Stamford Bridge, where Chelsea finally provided their supporters with something to cheer this season - a fact that only served to increase the hostility from those loyal to Mourinho. Sunderland gave a better account of themselves after half-time but remain in the bottom three.

Meanwhile, is the jig now up for Van Gaal? Norwich had not won a Premier League away match in their last 19 attempts before today and haul themselves out of the bottom three courtesy of that surprise 2-1 victory. Just one win in six games now for the hosts, who slip below Tottenham to fifth.



Chelsea 3-1 Sunderland

Everton 2-3 Leicester

Manchester United 1-2 Norwich

Southampton 0-2 Tottenham

Stoke 1-2 Crystal Palace

West Brom 1-2 Bournemouth


A bad afternoon for West Brom is compounded as they are reduced to nine men, club-record signing Rondon dismissed by referee Mike Dean for using his head during an altercation with Smith.


Red card: Salomon Rondon (West Brom)


Everton reduce the arrears against Leicester but have likely left it too late for a comeback as Mirallas nets from close range.


Goal: Everton 2-3 Leicester (Kevin Mirallas)


Fantastic drama as Bournemouth and Crystal Palace both look to have scored late winners away from home.

For Eddie Howe's side, Darren Fletcher trips Dan Gosling and Daniels dispatches the penalty. Lee's goal, meanwhile, is an emphatic piledriver into the back of the net from 30 yards. Wow.


Goal: Stoke 1-2 Crystal Palace (Chung-Yong Lee)


Goal: West Brom 1-2 Bournemouth (Charlie Daniels)


Set-piece specialist Willian sends a right-footed free-kick over the wall and towards the top corner but the sizable figure of Pantilimon is on hand to make the catch. Three minutes of added time signalledby the fourth official.


Sunderland are still fighting and Courtois produces a strong left-handed save from Defoe after Matic was caught in possession by Billy Jones on the edge of the penalty box.


All square at The Hawthorns now too. Centre-back McAuley's header from a Craig Gardner corner hits the post and goes in.


Goal: West Brom 1-1 Bournemouth (Gareth McAuley)


A warmer reception for Oscar as he is replaced by Ramires. Pedro then wastes the chance to put the result beyond any doubt as he gets caught in two minds after being slipped in by Willian and chips over the crossbar.


Plenty of penalties around the Premier League today and Bojan dispatches the latest beyond Wayne Hennessey after Damien Delaney is alleged to have handled inside the Crystal Palace area.


Goal: Stoke 1-1 Crystal Palace (Bojan)


Chances at either end as a long ball from Kaboul causes a mix-up between Courtois and Zouma, almost allowing Defoe to nip in and score Sunderland's second.

Moments later, Matic provides a low cross towards the near post but Remy kicks nothing but air as he attempts to flick the ball in.

A final change from Allardyce sees Danny Graham on for Watmore.


Another frosty reception from the Chelsea supporters as Costa is replaced by Loic Remy. The latest strong chant of Jose Mourinho rings out.


Another for Leicester as Vardy finds Okazaki and the summer signing composes himself before providing the finish touch. The Foxes are going to be top of the pile at Christmas. What a sublime achievement.


Goal: Everton 1-3 Leicester (Shinji Okazaki)


Fabregas is withdrawn to a mixed smattering of boos and applause with 20 minutes left to play. John Obi Mikel jogs on to shore things up in that Chelsea midfield.


When you are facing a side with as much confidence as Leicester, giving away multiple penalties is perhaps not the best approach. But that's exactly what Leicester have done as goalkeeper Tim Howard is whistled for a foul on the marauding Vardy.

Mahrez steps up from 12 yards for the second time this afternoon and produces the same result. The Premier League leaders are back in front.
