Droba is now booked for timewasting, stopping West Ham take a free kick. A hard fought and deserved win for Chelsea, but they really had to work for that. They'll be enjoying a nice lie in tomorrow, I hope. For West Ham, a big improvement over their receent efforts.

F-T! Manchester City 2-0 Leicester City. It wasn't easy but the champions have their win. David Silva's goal just before half-time was the key but Leicester will feel aggrieved about two penalty decisions, one which was debatable and one which should have been but only a freekick was given for a foul by Fernando on Kramaric.

What a save from Lloris! The Frenchman springs across goal to deny Williams an unlikely late equaliser. And that's it, Spurs have held on for a win that takes them to within six points of the top four with a game in hand.

FT: Newcastle 0 Manchester United 1. Another average United performance, but a vital win nonetheless. With all their top four rivals winning, it was imperative that they picked up three points, but after wasting several chances, a fortunate Ashley Young goal snatches victory. Huge result.

Incrediible drama. Tireless work from captain Rooney. He ever gave up, forced the error, but Krul has to do better, passed it straight to Young. Not an easy finish, but he remained composed.

DOUBLE SAVE! How has Krul kept the scores level!?! Fellaini is onside, brings the ball down, lashes the ball at goal, but Krul somehow gets a hand to it to keep hit out, and then has the energy to get up quickly to thwart Young on the rebound. Stunning from a 'keeper Van Gaal knows all too well.

The first half ends with Spurs playing the ball around midfield. The hosts went in front thanks to Chadli's brilliant early opener but Swansea rallied after losing Gomis to a worrying injury and levelled through an impressive finish from Ki.

HT: Newcastle 0 Manchester United 0. The visitors have had their chances to take the lead, but profligacy in front of goal has again been their downfall. Riviere has looked lively, while the hosts were unlucky not to be awarded a penalty for a foul on the Frenchman. Cisse and Evans could be in trouble, with replays showing the spat between the pair was literally just that.

GOAL! Manchester City 1-0 Leicester CIty. David Silva ends a frustrating half in the best possible way for the home side, tapping into an empty net from two yards out.

WHAT A MISS! Huge opportunity for Rooney. Great touch from Young kills the bal into the path of the England captain, but with the flag staying down, he drags the shot wide from the penalty spot. Time seemed to stand still with everyone expecting the flag. Right call, but Rooney should have buried that.

That's full time. An impressive recovery from Sunderland's players after their manager tried to ruin things for them with his sending off. However, his introduction of Van Aanholt for the equaliser deserves some credit, as it changed the match.

Ward-Prowse, on for less that five minutes, turns past Dann and shoots from just outside the area. Speroni pushes the shot straight out in front of him and Mane is there to dink it into the net.

H-T! Southampton 0-0 Crystal Palace. A disappointing first-half comes to an end after the scrappiest period of the game so far. Southampton have had the vast majority of the ball and nine shots in total, but with only one on target it's been relatively comfortable for Crystal Palace. The visitors will want to get their forward players involved more, particularly Dwight Gayle, but would be far the happier side if the result stays this way.
