Chelsea stayed four points clear at the top from Southampton, who won 2-0 at home to Leicester City after Shane Long came on as a 67th-minute substitute and scored with a left-foot shot on 75 minutes and a right-foot effort five minutes later.

Chelsea have 29 points, Southampton 25 with champions Manchester City, who are third on 21 points, after they were held 2-2 at Queens Park Rangers.

Elsewhere goals were in short supply as Manchester United beat Crystal Palace 1-0 with a 67th-minute effort from substitute Juan Mata, while Burnley beat Hull City 1-0 for their first league win of the season thanks to Ashley Barnes's 50th-minute header.

West Ham United drew 0-0 at Upton Park with Aston Villa, whose run of six successive defeats came to an end.
