The pressure is on Tottenham ahead of Wednesday's Premier League fixtures after Chelsea re-established a seven-point lead at the top.

Eden Hazard, Gary Cahill and Diego Costa were all on target in a 4-2 win, and now Spurs travel to a Crystal Palace all but clear of relegation but boasting a string of recent scalps.

Chelsea, Arsenal and, more recently, Liverpool have been put to the sword by Sam Allardyce & Co. and anything but three points for Spurs will effectively end the title race.

In north London, Arsenal host Leicester City as the fight to finish in the top four continues.

The Gunners begin the game in seventh place, though have played three games fewer than sixth-placed Everton but host a Foxes side who have won five of their previous seven.

And there's more drama at the top of the table on Thursday night as fierce rivals Manchester City and Manchester United - fourth and fifth in the table - face off at the Etihad in what could prove to be a straight shootout for Champions League football.

Further down the table, Middlesbrough host Sunderland on Wednesday with the two all but relegated and playing for pride.
