Fulham 0-1 Chelsea
Mason Mount's second-half strike was enough to hand Chelsea a 1-0 win over ten-man Fulham on Saturday night.
Antonio Rudiger, Jorginho and Olivier Giroud were recalled to the Blues line-up, as Kurt Zouma and Timo Wener dropped to bench.
Mason Mount went close on 25 minutes when Antonee Robinson's poor headed clearance fell into the path of the Chelsea midfielder who rattled the crossbar from a tight angle.
Fulham should have gone ahead on 41 minutes when Kenny Tete's low cross found an un-marked Ivan Cavaleiro in the box, but the latter sent his first-time strike over the crossbar.
The half ended on a sour note for the home side who had Robinson sent off after the full-back was shown a straight red card for a rash challenge on Cesar Azpilicueta.
Even with the numerical advantage, the Blues struggled to carve out chances after the halftime break which eventually forced Frank Lampard to withdraw Jorginho for Tammy Abraham on 64 minutes.
The breakthrough eventually arrived in the 76th minute when Alphonse Areola punched Ben Chilwell's cross into the path of Mount, who sent a powerful into the back of the net for his second league goal.
Leicester City 2-0 Southampton
Leicester City extended their unbeaaten run to five matches in the league with a 2-0 win over Southampton on Saturday night.
The Saints were without the services of Danny Ings, who had just recovered from Covid-19.
James Maddison got the game's opening goal in the 37th minute with a poweful strike from a tight angle after being played in by Youri Tielemans.
The second goal arrived in second-half stoppage time thanks to Harvey Barnes' strike that sees the Foxes jump up to second spot in the league standings.
