Leicester City have moved five points clear at the top of the Premier League table courtesy of a 1-0 victory over Norwich City at the King Power Stadium.

The relegation-threatened Canaries looked to be on course for their first away clean sheet of the season, but Leonardo Ulloa got the only goal of the game in the final minute of normal time to secure all three points for the league leaders.

Goals from Cesc Fabregas and Branislav Ivanovic in the final 15 minutes of the game helped Chelsea complete an impressive turnaround victory away at Southampton in the Premier League.

The Blues trailed to Shane Long’s first-half opener on the South Coast, but they battled back valiantly to secure a 2-1 triumph at St Mary’s Stadium – the first time they have overturned a deficit to win a league game all season.
