Chelsea snatched a late win at Crystal Palace on Saturday.
Chelsea’s 1-0 victory at Selhurst Park may have come too late to kickstart a title challenge as they are still 13 points off the top.
However, they solidified their place in the top four as Hakim Ziyech slotted home Marcos Alonso’s cross a minute from time.
West Ham’s bid for the top four took another hit as they were held 1-1 at home by Newcastle.
Hammers boss David Moyes again selected Kurt Zouma despite the controversy over the Frenchman physically abusing his cat.
Craig Dawson headed Moyes’ men in front, but Joe Willock secured a vital point in Newcastle’s battle to avoid relegation.
Norwich slip to the bottom of the table as Burnley secured just a second win of the season and in some style with a 3-0 win at Brighton.
Wout Weghorst who was signed in January netted his first goal for the Clarets before he then teed up Josh Brownhill to make it 2-0 before half-time.
Jay Rodriguez added a third after the break to move Burnley to within five points of safety with two games in hand on Newcastle.
Watford also secured a badly-needed win and a first under Roy Hodgson as Emmanuel Dennis scored the only goal in a 1-0 victory at Aston Villa.
Everton are looking over their shoulders as they were well beaten 2-0 at Southampton with Stuart Armstrong and Shane Long on target for the Saints.
