Bottom club West Brom took an early lead against Leicester before eventually losing 4-1 at The Hawthorns.
The Baggies, on the back of six straight defeats, went ahead on eight minutes through Salomon Rondon but Leicester equalised on 21 minutes after a breakaway goal from Jamie Vardy.
Newcastle dispatched Southampton 3-0 at St James’ Park to move away from the drop zone.
Kenedy fired the hosts ahead inside two minutes and then grabbed his second on 29 minutes following a swift counter-attack from a Southampton corner.
Matt Ritchie made it 3-0 just before the hour to lift Newcastle to 13th place while Southampton remain 17th, just a point outside the relegation zone with rivals Crystal Palace and Stoke holding a game in hand.
Everton ended Brighton’s recent good run with a 2-0 win at Goodison Park.
Gaetan Bong’s own goal broke the deadlock on the hour before Turkey forward Cenk Tosun scored his first home goal to wrap up the points with 15 minutes left.
Swansea also had a player sent off as they battled to a goalless draw at Huddersfield.
Huddersfield, though, could not make their advantage count and remain in 15th.
