Michu may have gotten all of the fantasy play this weekend but Jonathan De Guzman and Wayne Routledge scored the goals and Jonjo Shelvey was Swansea's creative force in their 3-0 over Norwich City.

This is the Swansea we expected to see all season. They dominated possession 59% to 41% and scored three goals - two through De Guzman and one through Wayne Routledge to pull ahead of their opponents in the race to stay up. Jonjo Shelvey's health has been less than ideal in recent weeks but he showed that he has put his ailments behind him as he provided an assist and an overall strong match to help secure three points that the Swans desperately needed.

Patrick Van Aanholt scored as Crystal Palace moved out of the bottom three with a 1-0 win over Middlesbrough.

Crystal Palace started the match with the better attacking chances and found the breakthrough on 34th minutes when Middlesbrough failed to clear a strike by Yohan Cabaye. The misplayed clearance fell to Van Aanholt, who touched onto to his left foot and popped a low strike into the bottom of the net, past a sprawling Victor Valdes. The victory for Palace was their first under Sam Allardyce and lifts the club to 17th place, on 22 points.

Middlesbrough are now winless in nine straight leagues matches after Saturday's 1-0 defeat at Crystal Palace.

Boro have struggled to find goals this season as they failed to find the net for the third straight match, following a goalless fixture at Everton and 1-0 defeat at Spurs. The visitors' best chance at Selhurst Park came on 22 minutes when Cristhian Stuani controlled a cross with his right foot, but was unable to pop it onto his left foot as it was cleared by Mamadou Sakho. While Boro came out better in the second half, they were unable to overcome the one goal deficit - a 34th minute strike by Patrick Van Aanholt. The defeat for the club leaves them in 17th place, even with Crystal Palace on 22 points.

Everton star forward Romelu Lukaku shook off any worries over his fitness with a goal in a 2-0 win against Sunderland.

The former Chelsea striker returned to the top of the Premier League in goals with his 17th of the season to put him level with Arsenal's Alexis Sanchez. Idrissa Gueye opened the scoring in the 40th minute with his first Premier League goal for the Toffees, blasting a low pass from Seamus Coleman into the back of the net. Then, in the 80th, Lukaku doubled Everton's lead with a powerful effort, fighting off former Everton teammate Bryan Oviedo on a breakaway and finishing past Jordan Pickford for the goal, to put him level on 60 goals with Everton legend Duncan Ferguson for the club record and his eighth in the last five home matches. Everton now sit just four points back of Manchester United after extending its league unbeaten streak to nine.

Gareth McAuley scored a crucial goal again in Week 26 as West Brom beat Bournemouth 2-1 at the Hawthorns.

All the scoring happened relatively early in the match with Josh King scoring a penalty in the 5th minute followed by a deflected Craig Dawson strike in the 10th and the Gareth McAuley winner in the 22nd. McAuley scored late to draw Albion even against West Brom earlier in February and he closed out the month with a winner. The goal came when the center back was first to pounce on Artur Boruc's flailing attempt at a punch from Chris Brunt's corner. The win further cements Albion's status in the 8th spot in the league as they moved eight points clear of Stoke City.

Sunderland remains bottom of the Premier League after yet another goalless outing in a 2-0 loss to Everton.

With the lone exception of a 4-0 win against Crystal Palace in Gameweek 24, the Black Cats have struggled mightily to put the ball into the back of the net. The club has been shut out in four of its last five Premier League games and only managed one shot on target against Everton on Saturday. Jermain Defoe came closest for Sunderland in the 77th minute, when he rifled a shot that beat Everton keeper Joel Robles but struck the crossbar, coming centimeters away from tying the game. Minutes later, Romelu Lukaku ended Sunderland's hopes with a punishing blow on a breakaway. The only good news comes from seeing Jordan Pickford in goal after missing the last two months. The young keeper made six saves in his first match of 2017, which saw Vito Mannone return to the bench.

Artur Boruc couldn't effectively punch out Chris Brunt's corner and Gareth McAuley was first to react and the resulting goal cost the Cherries a point.

Boruc makes some amazing saves from time-to-time but more often he is guilty of making crucial errors that end up being costly for his side. It was a case of the latter again in Week 26 as he flailed at a Chris Brunt set piece. The ball fell in the six yard box and West Brom's Gareth McAuley beat Boruc's teammates to the ball to score the match winner for Tony Pulis' side. You have to assume that Eddie Howe will be looking for a new goalkeeper come the summer.

Cesc Fabregas and Pedro both scored and assisted each other's strikes as Chelsea continue to pace the league with a 3-1 win over Swansea City.

Chelsea took another step toward securing the title this season with a convincing win over the Swans, though they did hit a bump midway through the match. Fabregas opened the scoring from close range, getting on the end of several nifty passes by the Chlesea attack, with Pedro providing the final pass. A free kick by Swansea just before halftime led to an equalizer though, and Chelsea looked a bit shell-shocked as the second half got going. They eventually found their stride again though and took the lead on a Pedro strike from outside the box that Lukasz Fabianski let through his hands. Fabregas, who made the most of a rare start, got the assist and was heavily influential on the day. Diego Costa put the icing on the cake, turning in a cross from Eden Hazard.

Swansea City were the latest victim of table-leading Chelsea, as a Fernando Llorente goal was not enough to earn a positive result in a 3-1 loss.

Swansea actually entered the day having earned more points in the league in the 2017 calendar year, but their turnaround hit a snag today, as Chelsea were clearly the better side over course of 90 minutes. After conceding the opener, the Jacks found lightning in a bottle just before halftime. A deep free kick by Gylfi Sigurdsson found the head of an unmarked Llorente, who headed it home to level the score. Lukasz Fabianski made a couple of fine saves in the first hour of the match but made a complete mess of a Pedro shot that went through his hands for what proved to be the match-winner. The Swans took it on the chin today but on the bright side, they have a nice run of fixtures over the next four weeks in their ongoing search for points.

Hull City were held to a 1-1 draw at the KCOM Stadium by Burnley.

The first half was quiet, with neither side creating meaningful opportunities to score. The second half began as the first ended, but burst into life in the last 20 minutes. First, Michael Keane was penalised for handling the ball in his own box. Tom Huddlestone capitalised on his error by converting from 12 yards. However, the Tigers couldn't hang on for the win for long, as Keane atoned for his handball minutes earlier by chesting down a Robbie Brady cross and smashing it beyond Eldin Jakupovic. Hull pressed for a winner in vain and in added time, Ashley Barnes received his second yellow card and marching orders.

Burnley won't have winger Johann Berg Gudmundsson and midfielder Steven Defour available for the weekend.

The trip to Hull City comes too early for the duo as Gudmundsson has yet to recover from a knee injury sustained in a shocking FA Cup loss to Lincoln last weekend. Meanwhile, manager Sean Dyche confirmed that Defour is fit from a hamstring injury, but needs to regain match fitness before returning to the squad: "Johann has unfortunately tweaked a medial knee ligament, which is not too drastic but he's not going to be ready for the weekend...His injury is clear but now it's strength and fitness, of course, on the back of a few weeks out. He's actively back on the grass now."
