De Futebol Chelsea wins! Leicester City-Southampton tie!

Chelsea stayed alive in the hunt for the Champions League with a huge 2-1 win over Burnley.

Leicester City and Southampton tied nil-nil.

EPL Match Report:” Victor Moses was the hero as Chelsea moved to within five points of the top four with a 2-1 win at Burnley.

Antonio Conte’s team went into a deserved lead on 20 minutes. Moses burst down the right and his cross went in off Kevin Long for an own goal.

Nine minutes after Alvaro Morata had missed a great chance to double the lead, Burnley were level.

Johann Berg Gudmundsson’s 64th-minute shot to the near post was inadvertently deflected in to the other corner by Ashley Barnes.

Chelsea soon restored their lead through Moses. Emerson Palmeri’s cross found the wing-back at the far post and he fired in.

The defeat harmed Burnley’s hopes of moving sixth, above Arsenal, who are two points ahead with a match in hand. “

EPL Match Report on the Foxes and Saints draw: “Southampton stopped a run of four successive defeats, but the point from a goalless draw with Leicester City leaves them still adrift of safety.

In a match of few chances, Saints’ Shane Long was denied by Foxes goalkeeper Ben Hamer, making his first Premier League start of the season.

Ryan Bertrand drove wide from distance while Dusan Tadic also came close.

The best chance fell to Leicester’s Jamie Vardy, seeking his 18th league goal of the season, after he latched on to a long ball but his effort was well saved by Alex McCarthy.

Southampton remain 18th, four points behind Swansea City, who have played a match fewer.
