Manchester City moved 17 points clear at the top of the Premier League table with a comfortable victory over Fulham.

The Cottagers, who defeated Liverpool last weekend, held their own during the first half but were three down by the hour mark after a disastrous start to the second period.

John Stones and Gabriel Jesus put City two up before Sergio Aguero netted for the first time since December from the penalty spot as it ended 3-0.

Burnley took another step towards safety with an impressive victory at Goodison Park that dented Everton’s top-four hopes.

The Clarets’ goals in their 2-1 success both came in the first half through excellent strikes from Chris Wood and Dwight McNeil.

Chelsea extended their unbeaten Premier League run to 10 matches in an entertaining goalless draw at Leeds.

The Blues, who have not lost in 12 games in all competitions under manager Thomas Tuchel, were given a thorough workout by Leeds, who fully deserved their point.

Both sides struck the crossbar in a frenetic first half and both goalkeepers were forced into decisive saves.

It was also another clean sheet for Tuchel’s side, who have conceded only two goals since he replaced Frank Lampard in January.

Luka Milivojevic’s first-half penalty helped Crystal Palace take another step to safety with a 1-0 win over sinking West Brom.

It was a different story for the visitors, who lacked a cutting edge and look certain to be in the Sky Bet Championship next season.
