Chelsea impress vs. West Ham, Man United and Man City stay in touch

Chelsea picked up another impressive win while Manchester City, Southampton and Liverpool picked up three points away from home.

Chelsea won to stay atop the Premier League table after a full Boxing Day schedule which also saw title chasers Manchester City and Manchester United prevail.

Diego Costa was on target in a 2-0 win as Premier League leaders Chelsea were too much for the Hammers to handle.

Premier League leaders Chelsea demonstrated their strength with a 2-0 win over in-form West Ham United in the lunchtime kick off on Boxing Day.

John Terry scored his second goal in as many matches, tapping in from close range, to break the deadlock in the 31st minute at Stamford Bridge.

1. United roll back the years

Thrilling forward play and deadly counterattacks are what a younger generation of Manchester United fans were brought up on. If this season's Premier League title looks beyond Louis Van Gaal's team, Old Trafford is being presented with a vision of an imminent future in which their team might soon compete with Chelsea and Manchester City.


Three Points: Raheem Sterling the hero as Liverpool edge Burnley

Raheem Sterling's second-half strike ensured Liverpool managed their first league victory in four matches despite turning in a poor performance at struggling Burnley.

BURNLEY, England -- Raheem Sterling's second-half goal was the difference as Liverpool picked up a valuable 1-0 away win at Burnley. Here are three quick points from their Boxing Day clash at Turf Moor:

1. Sharp Sterling helps Liverpool win ugly

Brendan Rodgers is a proponent of the beautiful game, but there can be little doubt that his side won ugly at Turf Moor. Liverpool were nowhere near as fast or as fluent as they had been in possession against Arsenal on Sunday, let alone as potent...

Leicester need spirited outing against Hull

Mauricio Pochettino praises his players' desire, yet conceded they were perhaps fortunate to win 2-1 at Leicester City while Nigel Pearson "will not stick his head in the sand".

It might only be the halfway stage of the season, but Leicester can't afford to lose at Hull City. The Tigers sit one place above the relegation zone, and victory would move them nine points above the Foxes. Given Nigel Pearson's men have only racked up ten points all season, that's an alarming gap.

Leicester showed plenty of endeavour in the 2-1 home defeat to Tottenham on Boxing Day, but they just weren't clinical enough. Leonardo Ulloa missed a simple header, Danny Drinkwater scuffed a shot...

Tim Sherwood interested in Crystal Palace vacancy - sources

Just four months to the day since he took charge, Neil Warnock has been sacked as Crystal Palace manager.

Tim Sherwood has emerged as the early frontrunner to take over as Crystal Palace manager, with sources telling ESPN FC he would be interested in the job.

A number of bookmakers, including bet365, have made Sherwood the favourite to take over from Neil Warnock, who was sacked on Saturday morning after he struggled to lift Palace in his 17-game spell in charge that concluded with a 3-1 home defeat against Southampton on Boxing Day.

Former Tottenham boss Sherwood would be keen on a fresh approach...
