BRANISLAV Ivanovic’s sec­ond-half goal moved Chelsea seven points clear at the top of the ta­ble with victory over As­ton Villa.

Eden Haz­ard put the Blues ahead when he swept home Wil­lian’s pass.

How­ever, Villa scored their first league goal in 659 min­utes when Jores Okore headed in.

But Ivanovic volleyed home the win­ner on 66 min­utes.

FOR­MER Cardiff mid­fielder Joe Led­ley scored the only goal as Crys­tal Palace beat Le­ices­ter.

The Wales in­ter­na­tional headed in from a cor­ner early in the sec­ond half.

The Ea­gles have now won three out of their last four league games since Alan Pardew took over as manager.
