PRE­MIER LEAGUE: Chelsea lost ground in the ti­tle race as they slumped to a 1-0 de­feat against Le­ices­ter at Stam­ford Bridge.

Jamie Vardy’s close-range ef­fort in the 51st minute set­tled the con­test to keep the Blues in fourth place.

Pierre-Em­er­ick Aubameyang scored twice as Arse­nal moved level on points with Chelsea with a 3-1 win over Burn­ley.

He opened his ac­count af­ter 14 min­utes with a vol­ley be­fore ri­fling home an­other three min­utes into the se­cond half.

Ash­ley Barnes’s low fin­ish in the 63rd minute brought Burn­ley back into the con­test, but Alex Iwobi’s close-range fin­ish made sure the Clarets re­mained in the rel­e­ga­tion zone.
