There were only three matches on Saturday in the Premier League with the FA Cup quarter-finals also taking place this weekend
West Ham United fought back from behind to claim a stunning 4-3 victory over bottom side Huddersfield Town.
A last-gasp winner from Wes Morgan gave ten-man Leicester a second consecutive victory under Brendan Rodgers.
Bournemouth were denied late by their former player Matt Ritchie as spoils were shared at the Vitality Stadium.

BOURNEMOUTH 2-2 NEWCASTLE UNITED
There was late drama at the Vitality stadium, where Newcastle fought back to earn a 2-2 draw after Matt Ritchie scored a superb volley deep into added time.
Ryan Fraser saw an early effort hit the outside of the post, but it was the visitors who broke the deadlock moments before half-time through a curling free-kick from Salomon Rondon.
The home side were back on level terms soon after the restart when Joshua King converted a penalty in the 48th minute after Nathan Ake had been brought down by Federico Fernandez.
King got his second of the afternoon in the 81st minute from a pass by Dominic Solanke, which looked to have secured Bournemouth all three points.
Newcastle, though, earned themselves a share of the spoils following Ritchie’s fine finish from a cross by DeAndre Yedlin.
BURNLEY 1-2 LEICESTER CITY
Wes Morgan scored a 90th-minute winner for ten-man Leicester as they overcame the fourth-minute dismissal of Harry Maguire to claim an unlikely victory over Burnley at a wet and windy Turf Moor.
The England defender was shown a straight red card for bringing down Johann Berg Gudmundsson but Burnley were unable to make their numerical advantage count and the 2-1 defeat was their fourth in a row.
Leicester took the lead in the 33rd minute through a fine free-kick from James Maddison but 19-year-old Dwight McNeil equalised with his second Premier League goal five minutes later.
Burnley pushed for what would have been a potentially crucial win in their battle against relegation but instead it was Morgan who found the breakthrough, heading in Youri Tielemans’ deflected cross.
WEST HAM UNITED 4-3 HUDDERSFIELD TOWN
Javier Hernandez scored twice as West Ham came back from the brink of a humiliating defeat to beat Huddersfield 4-3.
Town, rock-bottom of the Premier League and all but doomed to relegation, were heading towards only their fourth win of the season when they led 3-1 through Juninho Bacuna and a double from Karlon Grant.
But Hernandez climbed off the bench to score twice and shove Huddersfield another step closer to the Championship.
