Leicester extended their lead at the top of the Barclays Premier League to eight points with a hard-earned 1-0 win at Crystal Palace.

The Foxes went ahead on 34 minutes, with Riyad Mahrez sweeping in a cross from the left by England forward Jamie Vardy.

Arsenal kept alive their slim hopes of winning the Premier League thanks to a 2-0 win overEverton at Goodison Park.

Chelsea were level in stoppage time at the end of the first half when midfielder Fabregas whipped a free-kick up over the wall and past Adrian from outside the area.

Substitute Andy Carroll restored West Ham's lead shortly after coming on when his angled shot found its way past Chelsea keeper Thibaut Courtois in the 61st minute.

Just when it seemed the Hammers were set to move into the top four above Manchester City, who host rivals United on Sunday, referee Robert Madley pointed to the spot when Ruben Loftus Cheek looked to have tripped over himself in the penalty area on 89 minutes.

Fabregas sent Adrian the wrong way to secure a share of the points for the home side.

Stoke are seventh after they won 2-1 at Watford.

The visitors took the lead on 18 minutes when Jon Walters tapped in a low cross from right-back Phil Bardsley at the far post.

Spanish midfielder Joselu doubled the visitors' advantage in the 51st minute with a lob over Hornets keeper Heurelho Gomes.

Watford pulled a goal back with four minutes to go from a header by Troy Deeney.

Norwich moved out of the relegation zone with a 1-0 victory at West Brom - a first win in 11 league matches.

The Canaries, who had yet to keep a clean sheet away from home in the league, took the lead five minutes into the second half with a close-range effort by Robbie Brady.
