BOURNEMOUTH manager Eddie Howe is craving more wins after the Cherries upset English Premier League champions Chelsea 1-0 at Stamford Bridge.

Howe hailed the victory as the best in the club's history after Glenn Murray's 82nd-minute strike secured all three points.

"The club has never been in the Premier League, so winning at the champions is a huge result for the club," he said.

"Hopefully it will be talked about for a long time to come but we don't want this to be a one-off game."

Chelsea had looked to be recovering some form after a shocking start to its title defence.

Three clean sheets in all competitions had shown some signs of improvement for Jose Mourinho's men, but this latest defeat casts fresh doubt about the Blues' hopes of a top-four spot and a Champions League place, not to mention the tenure of the manager himself.

Chelsea has now lost eight of its past 15 EPL games and is just three points clear of the relegation zone.

The Blues' troubles are in sharp contrast to those of Leicester City, which continues to surprise and impress.

A 3-0 win at struggling Swansea City pushed the Foxes two points clear at the top of the league following Manchester City's shock 2-0 defeat at Stoke.

The only surprise about Leicester's success at the Liberty Stadium was Jamie Vardy was not on the scoresheet.

He had set the record of scoring in 11 straight EPL games the previous week but could not find the target despite a couple of opportunities.

Riyad Mahrez became the first Algerian to notch an EPL hat-trick to pile more pressure on Swansea boss Garry Monk.

Manchester United stayed in fourth after a 0-0 draw at home with West Ham.

Spurs stayed fifth after a 1-1 draw at West Brom, while Southampton drew 1-1 with Aston Villa and Watford defeated Norwich 2-0.
