Premier League Roundup: Cahill's late winner takes Chelsea 13 points clear at the top as Arsenal crash at WBA


Chelsea's march towards the Premier League title continued at Stoke, but they had to rely on a Gary Cahill goal in the 87th minute to grab a 2-1 win.
Antonio Conte's side went ahead in the 13th minute when Stoke goalkeeper Lee Grant could only palm Willian's free-kick inside his own near post.
Mark Hughes' men levelled through a Jonathan Walters penalty in the 38th minute, but they were denied a point when Cahill, who had conceded the spot-kick, made amends with a late winner which took the Blues 13 points clear at the top. 
Worse was to come for Stoke, who had Phil Bardsley sent off for a second booking in added time.
Arsene Wenger felt the venom of the Arsenal fans as his side's Champions League hopes suffered another blow with a 3-1 loss at West Brom.
The Frenchman, who is yet to reveal whether he will remain in charge beyond the end of the season, saw his side beaten by two Craig Dawson headers, either side of a Hal Robson-Kanu goal.
Alexis Sanchez's equaliser briefly brought the Gunners level, but it offered little cause for celebration for Wenger, who saw his side lose for the fourth time in five Premier League games, while he again bore the brunt of supporters' anger as travelling fans called for his exit.
Woeful defending contributed to Arsenal's downfall. 
Dawson headed home corners in the 12th and 75th minutes, while Robson-Kanu's 55th-minute goal, just 75 seconds after coming on, came as a result of a collision between replacement goalkeeper David Ospina, on for the injured Petr Cech, and Hector Bellerin.
Sanchez had levelled in the 15th minute with his 18th league goal of the season, but the Chilean's substitution in the second half had the fans turning on Wenger once more.
Defeat left Arsenal five points off the top four, with the potential to fall further adrift on Sunday.
Leicester continued their remarkable resurgence under Craig Shakespeare as a flying start set them on their way to a 3-2 win at West Ham.
Goals from Riyad Mahrez and Robert Huth had the Foxes two up after only seven minutes and, although Manuel Lanzini pulled one back in the 20th minute with a brilliant free-kick, a Jamie Vardy finish restored the visitors' two-goal cushion before the break.
Andre Ayew headed home a second for the Hammers, but they could not find a leveller.
Victory maintained Shakespeare's perfect record since replacing Claudio Ranieri and lifted his side six points clear of the bottom three.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin's first Everton goal paved the way for the Toffees' 4-0 win at home to struggling Hull, who had Tom Huddlestone sent off in the 73rd minute for a foul on Idrissa Gana.
Enner Valencia added a second for Everton five minutes later, with Romelu Lukaku netting twice at the end.
Troy Deeney's own goal condemned Watford to a 1-0 loss at Crystal Palace, who boosted their survival hopes with a third straight win and clean sheet.
Basement boys Sunderland drew 0-0 at home to Burnley, but the point does little for their fading survival hopes.
Bournemouth moved nine points clear of the bottom three with a 2-0 victory over relegation rivals Swansea in Saturday's final top-flight game.
Eddie Howe's side had addressed a slide in form with a vital win over West Ham last weekend and this 2-0 success - courtesy of an Alfie Mawson own goal and a Benik Afobe strike - will go a long way to securing the Cherries' safety for another season.
