English football giants Chelsea have kept their Premier League title push on track with a 3-0 home win over Stoke City.

They went top of the league before Liverpool reclaimed the lead with a 2-1 win at West Ham.

Manchester City beat Southampton 4-1 and are four points off Liverpool but with two games in hand.

Manchester United moved above Tottenham and into sixth place with a 4-0 win away at Newcastle.

Fulham moved off the bottom of the table with a 2-1 win away to Aston Villa, but remain five points from safety in 18th, behind Norwich, who lost 1-0 at home to another relegation-threatened side, West Bromwich Albion.

Norwich sacked manager Chris Hughton afterwards.

Hull beat mid-table rivals Swansea 1-0.

Everton beat Arsenal 3-0 at Goodison Park to close the gap to the fourth-placed Gunners to one point.

Meanwhile Leicester City, where All Whites striker Chris Wood is based, will be back in the Premier League next season after other Championship results went their way.
