It was only Cherries' second win in the last 10 games, but it took over 40 points to put an end to any lingering fears they had of being dragged into trouble.

However, for Brighton, the problems are growing, their race towards the masked semi-final of the England Cup was the terrible form that saw them collect only eight points from the first round of the year.

Burnley 2-0 Cardiff City

Referee Mike Dean has been controversially controversial about his decision to give Cardiff a penalty while the Bluebirds problems deepened with a 2-0 defeat by Burnley to Turf Moor.

Chris Wood deservedly deserves the hosts at 31 & # 39 ;, but in Cardiff it seems that a great opportunity has been presented to equalize moments after the recovery, when Ben Mee was penalized for handball.

It was assistant Darren Cann who raised the flag but, after an argument with Dean, the referee changed his mind, leaving the players and Cardiff boss Neil Warnock furious.

The Cardiff has received two more stiff penalty calls rejected towards the end of the second half and Wood has secured his points with his 13th goal of the season in recovery time.

Captain Tom Cairney opened the scoring with only the second Premier League goal of his career and his first since he scored against Everton for Hull in March 2010 and it was Ryan Babel who concluded a rare victory for the team home.

Aleksandar Mitrovic lost several chances in the first half, but Fulham scored twice in the second half to collect the first victory since January and a first victory for goalkeeper Parker.

Southampton 3-1 Wolves

Nathan Redmond's first two goals in two years brought Southampton to the brink of Premier League security with a 3-1 win over Wolves.

The twenty-five-year-old couple sent Saints eight points ahead of relegation favorites, with Shane Long adding a third to the impressive hosts.

Willy Boly's header brought the wolves to 1-1, but only for 118 seconds, when Redmond jumped over the second to stun the Molineux men.


Manchester United 2-1 West Ham

Felipe Anderson saw a wrong home run offside for offside, but the Brazilian canceled Pogba's disputed penalty shortly after half-time when the Hammers capitalized on David De Gea's shot.

The United goalkeeper made amends while Manuel Pellegrini's men pushed for the winner, producing an exceptional one-handed parade of Michail Antonio shortly after the West Ham substitute shook the goalframe.

Yet guests returned to the capital empty-handed after Pogba destroyed his second penalty kick to keep the four-man high in an evening when the show alarmed Solskjaer.

Crystal Palace 1-3 Manchester City

Raheem Sterling's double has kept Manchester City's candidacy to keep the Premier League crown running while sinking Crystal Palace 3-1 – READ THE COMPLETE REPORT HERE.

Sterling scored his goal for the season at 21 and Gabriel Jesus entered the third place with the City, which passed the last test of the title credentials.

Selhurst Park was a graveyard for campaigns for the title in the recent past, particularly when Liverpool's wheels were knocked off in 2014 and City suffered a similar fate a year later.

The palace was also trying to complete an unlikely double compared to the champions, as the only visiting team to win at the Etihad this season thanks to the goal-goal by Andros Townsend.

But with Christian Benteke, he gave a first start from February 9th, cutting an isolated figure in attack the Eagles failed to put a glove on the side of Pep Guardiola until Luka Milivojevic scored with a free kick.

However, the team did not beat the City, with substitute Jesus assuring them that he had won the ninth consecutive victory in the Premier League.
