Robert Huth (83) scored a late winner as Leicester beat Premier League top-four rivals Tottenham.
The Foxes, who are now level on points with leaders Arsenal, looked like they were
heading for a fourth league game without a goal until unmarked Huth headed home Christian Fuchs’ corner.
Harry Kane had Spurs’ best chance when his effort was touched onto the bar by keeper Kasper Schmeichel.
Foxes striker Jamie Vardy returned from groin surgery but had a quiet game.
Allen’s late equaliser earn a point for Liverpool
Substitute Joe Allen scored a 90th-minute equaliser to earn Liverpool a point against leaders Arsenal victory in a pulsating match at Anfield.
Roberto Firmino (10’) gave the Reds the lead after Petr Cech parried Emre Can’s shot into his path before Aaron Ramsey (14’) levelled with a cool finish.
Firmino’s (19’) 25-yard curler restored Liverpool’s lead but Giroud (25’) equalised again, touching in from a corner.
Giroud’s (55’) shot on the turn gave Arsenal the lead before Allen volleyed in.
Defoe scores hat-trick as Sunderland beat Swansea
Jermain Defoe (3’, 61’, 85’) struck a hat-trick as Sunderland dragged 10-man Swansea closer to the bottom three in a game packed with refereeing controversy.
Defoe pounced on Lukasz Fabianski’s mistake score, before Swansea equalised with Gylfi Sigurdsson’s (21’) penalty.
Kyle Naughton was controversially sent off for a foul on Yann M’Vila but Andre Ayew (40’) put the Swans ahead by half-time.
Patrick van Aanholt’s (49’) deflected shot levelled and Defoe struck twice to secure a second successive league win.
Stoke see off Norwich with three second half goals
Stoke City moved up to seventh in the Premier League as three second-half goals saw off a Norwich side which played over an hour with 10 men.
The game was goalless when Canaries midfielder Gary O’Neil saw red for needlessly clattering through the back of Ibrahim Afellay on the touchline.
Stoke’s Jon Walters (49’) slid in the opener at the far post, only for Jonny Howson (55’) to level with a 20-yard half volley.
Joselu’s (67’) low drive and Ryan Bennett’s (78’) headed own goal sealed the home win.
Southhampton 2-0 Watford
Goals from Shane Long (17’) and Dusan Tadic (73’) earned Southampton only their second league win in nine games as they saw off Watford at St Mary’s Stadium.
The Saints were exceptional and outshone their in-form visitors on a wet and cold night on the south coast.
Long opened the scoring when he directed his header past Heurelho Gomes from a excellent Matt Targett delivery.
Dusan Tadic made it 2-0, two minutes after coming on in the 73rd minute, when he fired in from eight yards.
City fail to make ground after drawing with Everton
Manchester City missed the chance to make up ground in the Premier League title race as they were held to a goalless draw by a stubborn Everton.
Manuel Pellegrini’s side dominated the second half, but were repeatedly denied by away keeper Tim Howard.
It was a supreme defensive display from the Toffees, who had been the better attacking side in the first half.
They also rode their luck, as City were denied a late penalty for a foul on Raheem Sterling by John Stones.
For Everton, it is a point won – and a confidence-boosting one, following a run of seven games in which they have won just once.
But it is two key points dropped for City and they remain three points behind joint league leaders Arsenal, held 3-3 by Liverpool, and Leicester, 1-0 winners at Tottenham.
McClean’s late winner earn West Brom a share of the points
James McClean’s (86’) late equaliser earned West Brom a share of the points as they refused to accept defeat at Chelsea.
The Blues went ahead when Cesar Azpilicueta (20’) turned in fellow full-back Branislav Ivanovic’s low cross.
Craig Gardner’s (33’) skimming low shot levelled, but it seemed Chelsea had done enough when Gareth McAuley (73’) prodded Willian’s low cross into his own net.
But when the home defence failed to clear McClean made them pay with a pinpoint low shot into the corner.
The Republic of Ireland international’s leveller was the final twist in an often ill-tempered game with Chelsea striker Diego Costa at the centre of several flashpoints, including a confrontation with several West Brom players after the final whistle.
