Bournemouth pulled off one of the shock results of the season by beating Premier League champions Chelsea 3-0 at Stamford Bridge, easing their relegation fears in the process.
The Cherries travelled to London sitting just two points above the dropzone, but three second-half goals in 16 minutes from Callum Wilson , Junior Stanislas and Nathan Ake saw them leave celebrating a surprise victory.

United under-performed as they lost their six-game run of clean sheets, but both teams received a boost with the news that Chelsea had lost at home to Bournemouth .
Manchester City extended their lead at the top of the Premier League to 15 points with a 3-0 win over West Bromwich Albion at the Etihad Stadium this evening.
