City's fans celebrated long and loud after the final whistle at Wembley after a dazzling display by their team. They dominated the first half and went ahead in the 22nd minute when captain Vincent Kompany's long pass released Jesus to score in clinical fashion. Three minutes later Spurs goalkeeper Hugo Lloris sent Raheem Sterling flying although replays suggested the contact was just outside the area. The referee pointed to the spot, however, and Gundogan rolled home the kick. Tottenham, whose 14-match unbeaten league run was their best spell since 1967, responded through Christian Eriksen before halftime but Sterling wrapped up the points in the 77th minute. Chelsea trailed to goals by Dusan Tadic and Jan Bednarek at St Mary's but Olivier Giroud came on as a 61st-minute substitute for the visitor to spark a stunning turnaround.

First, Giroud expertly met a cross from Marcos Alonso, who was lucky to be on the pitch after stamping on Shane Long. Eden Hazard equalised from close range before Giroud fired in a low shot to give Chelsea the points. The action was just as furious at Selhurst Park with all the goals coming in the opening 34 minutes, including a first-ever league double for Palace's Wilfried Zaha. Huddersfield rose to 14th thanks to an injury-time goal by Tom Ince while Jordan Ayew returned from a three-match ban to earn Swansea a draw against Everton. Burnley earned their fifth straight league win with a 2-1 victory over Leicester City at Turf Moor to boost their chance of possible Europa League qualification.
