· Everton Shock Chelsea
Arsenal and Tottenham both won on Sunday to keep their hopes of sealing a top-four spot alive.
Arsenal maintained their two-point lead over Tottenham in the battle to qualify for next season’s Champions League.
They were 2-1 winners at West Ham to move back above Spurs, who earlier beat Leicester 3-1 thanks to a Son Heung-min double.
Arsenal’s center-backs got the job done to keep the Gunners on course to end a five-year absence from the Champions League.
Rob Holding’s header from Bukayo Saka’s corner put the visitors in front at the London Stadium.
West Ham had one eye on the second leg of their Europa League semi-final against Eintracht Frankfurt in midweek, but David Moyes named a strong side and was rewarded with an equaliser before half-time from Jarrod Bowen.
The Hammers’ strength from set-pieces has been one of the successes of their season.
But they were undone at the back from another corner as this time Gabriel Magalhaes turned in Gabriel Martinelli’s cross.
In the other game, Son Heung-min led Tottenham Hotspur to a dominant 3-1 victory against Leicester City.
The South Korean whipped in a corner which Harry Kane jumped to first to power in a header after 22 minutes.
Son doubled Tottenham’s lead at the hour mark when great work from Dejan Kulusevski saw him break to the left to pick Son out, who fired the ball into the back of the net.
Twenty minutes later, Son made it 3-0 when he received the ball outside of the penalty box to sensationally curl the ball over Kasper Schmeichel and into the goal.
A consolation goal for Kelechi Iheanacho, who struck the ball into the near post after surging forward, gave the away fans something to cheer about, but it was Spurs that took a key win and pile the pressure onto Arsenal in the race for the final Champions League spot.
The battle for fourth could come down to a north London derby between Tottenham and Arsenal on May 12.
But Mikel Arteta’s men will hope to extend their lead to five points next weekend when they host relegation-threatened Leeds, while Spurs face a daunting trip to title-chasing Liverpool.
Meanwhile, Everton earned a pivotal 1-0 win against Chelsea to keep their hopes of surviving well and truly alive amid an electric Premier League atmosphere at Goodison Park.
A scrappy game, with no clear-cut chances for either side in the first half, opened up at the start of the second half when another terrible mistake from Cesar Azpilicueta gave Richarlison an opportunity.
Azpilicueta was disposed by the Brazilian on the edge of the box, allowing Demarai Gray to prod the ball forward to Richarlison who slotted the ball into the far corner.
Vitaliy Mykolenko nearly doubled Everton’s lead a few minutes later, when he was slipped in by Abdoulaye Doucoure, but he lashed the ball over despite having time and space.
Jordan Pickford had a brilliant game, stopping Chelsea from finding the back of the net with a series of excellent saves.
First, the England goalkeeper stopped Azpilicueta from redeeming himself when the Mason Mount’s low strike rebounded off the post towards the Chelsea captain whose shot was stopped by a quick-reacting Pickford
