Premier League: Leicester maintain top slot, Norwich stun United

Surprise Premier League leaders Leicester City go into the Christmas period at the top of the table after their 11th win in 17 matches. Two penalties from Riyad Mahrez and a fine finish from Shinji Okazaki helped the Foxes to a 3-2 win over Everton at Goodison Park on Saturday. Elsewhere, relegation-threatened Norwich secured a shock 2-1 victory against Manchester United at Old Trafford, while Chelsea eased to a 3-1 win over Sunderland in their first game since Jose Mourinho’s ouster. Mourinho was sacked on Thursday and Dutchman Guus Hiddink appointed as interim manager. In other games: Tottenham beat Southampton 2-0, Crystal Palace overcame Stoke City 2-1, Newcastle drew 1-1 with Aston Villa, and Bournemouth continued their unbeaten run with a 2-1 win over West Brom.
