Chelsea boss Antonio Conte says his club need 24 points to win the Premier League ITN

That is it for this live text, but be sure to check back in with IBTimes UK tomorrow as we guide you through a hat-trick of Sunday afternoon games.

Middlesbrough vs Manchester United is first on the agenda, followed by Tottenham vs Southampton and the small matter of Manchester City vs Liverpool.

Goodbye for now.


Conte is understandably cock-a-hoop as Chelsea open up a 13-point gap over nearest title challengers Tottenham and Manchester City, both of whom play tomorrow. He's certainly got the midas touch.

Antonio Conte

Cahill, who gave away a first-half penalty, goes from hero to zero thanks to that late winner. The leaders are seven wins away from guaranteeing their first title triumph since 2015.


Full-time scores

Crystal Palace 1-0 Watford

Everton 4-0 Hull

Stoke 1-2 Chelsea

Sunderland 0-0 Burnley

West Ham 2-3 Leicester


Already on a booking, Bardsley, who could perhaps have been sent off a couple of times over already, foolishly slides in late on Fabregas and finally receives his marching orders.

Phil Bardsley



Red card: Phil Bardsley (Stoke)


Hull have fallen to pieces since losing Huddlestone.

Lukaku bags a late double to cap off a difficult week in which his future has been subject to yet more fervent speculation.


Goal: Everton 4-0 Hull (Romelu Lukaku)


Costa rifles a shot against the post and Loftus-Cheek forces a fine low save from Grant.

Plenty of room for those Chelsea attackers to operate in now as Stoke throw men forward in search of another equaliser.


Hughes throws on the towering figure of Crouch for the final few minutes. Sobhi is withdrawn.


Goal: Everton 3-0 Hull (Romelu Lukaku)


Kurt Zouma replaces Willian.

Pedro and Loftus-Cheek look to make sure of the three points as we head into four minutes of stoppage time.


Despite briefly looking like the team most likely to notch a late winner, Stoke concede with just three minutes remaining.

Grant is unable to prevent a sloppy Pieters backpass from going behind for a corner. Sobhi cannot adequately clear a Luiz header and Cahill pops up to drive the ball home.

Chelsea move one step closer to the title.

Gary Cahill


Goal: Stoke 1-2 Chelsea (Gary Cahill)


Walters sends Diouf too far wide of goal and then cannot finish at the back post.

The ball falls kindly for Sobhi, but his sliced shot veers toward the corner flag.


Arnautovic sends in two more enticing corners but Stoke cannot make them count.


Two Stoke corners come to nothing as Chelsea nervously stand firm.

A rare Premier League outing for Loftus-Cheek now as the 21-year-old midfielder deputises for Matic.


Costa can only steer Fabregas' second-chance centre over the crossbar.

Stoke pushing on now after being penned back for much of this second half.


Game over for 10-man Hull. West Ham loanee Valencia links up nicely with Lukaku before putting the game to bed just a minute after being sent on in place of Davies.


Goal: Everton 2-0 Hull (Enner Valencia)


Grant called into action once again for Stoke after smart combination play between Willian and Pedro.


Hull's hopes of leaving Goodison Park with a handy point look to be over after Huddlestone is dismissed for a late challenge on Idrissa Gueye. 15 minutes left in that one.


Red card: Tom Huddlestone (Hull)
