WATFORD 0 - 0 SUNDERLAND
 
A win today for Sunderland will lift them off the bottom spot, with Defoe looking like their only hope today. A win for Watford today will clear them of trouble at the bottom and it will almost certify Sunderland's prospect of relegation. 
GOAL
 
CHELSEA 1 - 0 CRYSTAL PALACE
 
Fabregas scores the opener from inside of the area, following a clever ball into the box from Hazard. The Palace defence look static and they have paid the ultimate price for this mistake.
LEICESTER 0 - 0 STOKE CITY
 
Benalouane latches onto a delivery into the danger zone from Mahrez, but his shot fails to test the keeper and it flies across the face of goal. 
GOAL
 
CHELSEA 1 - 1 CRYSTAL PALACE
 
Zaha has equalised at Stamford Bridge, after turning quickly and executing an impressive strike whilst surrounded by a sea of Chelsea shirts. Top stuff from the 24-year-old.
GOAL
 
CHELSEA 1 - 2 CRYSTAL PALACE
 
Benteke combines again with Zaha and he cleverly chips the ball over Courtois to give the visitors the lead. This was not in the script for Conte's men. 
WATFORD 0 - 0 SUNDERLAND
 
It's been an energetic start from both sides here at Vicarage Road, with Januzaj coming close to opening the scoring. He cuts in from the wing, but his attempted strike is parried away by Gomez.
HULL CITY 0 - 0 WEST HAM
 
Snodgrass wastes a fantastic opportunity to open the scoring at the KCOM Stadium from close range. His headed attempt falls straight into the hands of the keeper.
GOAL
 
HULL CITY 0 - 1 WEST HAM
 
Carroll has bagged the opener, after chesting down a crossed ball from Cresswell and slotting it past Jakupovic.
BURNLEY 0 - 0 TOTTENHAM
 
It has been a slow start so far for the visitors, with the Burnley defence remaining untested so far. The home side are controlling possession and look the more likely of the two sides to score an opener. 
LEICESTER 0 - 0 STOKE CITY
 
Drinkwater finds Vardy, who picks out Gray. The striker picks up possession and goes for goal from 25 yard. It looks although it's only a matter of time before The Foxes take the lead here.
GOAL 
 
LEICESTER 1 - 0 STOKE CITY
 
Ndidi scores from 30 yards with his right foot, leaving Grant helpless to such a sublime strike. Game on!
BURNLEY 0 - 0 TOTTENHAM
 
Both sides are struggling to find their feet here at Turf Moor, with Spurs shaky away form proving evident here. It has been a dreary start to the game so far, but Burnley deserve credit for their organisation and discipline so far.
