LONDON -- Slender victories for Chelsea and Manchester City, and a potent attacking display by Arsenal, left the top of the Premier League unchanged Saturday. Chelsea leads the way after captain John Terry clinched a 1-0 victory over Everton in stoppage time by bundling the ball over. Arsenal is just a point behind its London rival as Olivier Giroud scored twice on his return to the starting lineup in a 4-1 victory over struggling Sunderland. Third-placed City relied on Yaya Toures goal to see off former manager Mark Hughes Stoke 1-0 to remain three points from the summit with a game in hand. In the late game, Manchester United is at Crystal Palace languishing far from the elite in seventh place. Chelsea is 17 points ahead, but it seemed like Jose Mourinhos side would endure a second successive draw as Everton goalkeeper Tim Howard repeatedly thwarted them. That was until the third minute of stoppage time when Phil Jagielka fouled Ramires to concede a free kick. Frank Lampard whipped the ball into the penalty area, and it seemed to brush off Branislav Ivanovics head before Terry appeared to nudge it into the net with the help of Howards body. "When you score minute 90-something you can speak about being lucky," Mourinho said. "The reality is that the boys chased that. We were the team that was really trying to win, which is our responsibility. "We deserved it. I never thought we would score so late. I had hope that we could score a goal before that. Destiny wanted last minute." It was similarly anxious for City at home, having gone two games without a win. But the hosts pressure finally told with 20 minutes to go. Samir Nasir cut in and fed Aleksandar Kolarov, who crossed for the advancing Toure to score. There was a flurry of goals at the Emirates Stadium, and after Giroud scored in the fifth minute, there seemed little doubt Arsenal would bounce back from its loss to Bayern Munich in the Champions League with a win. The France striker completed slick buildup play between Tomas Rosicky and Jack Wilshere to slot in the opener after five minutes, and he intercepted a sloppy back pass to net again in the 31st. Rosicky chipped in the third before half time and defender Laurent Koscielny headed in the fourth 12 minutes after the break. All Sunderland could muster was a late goal from substitute Emanuele Giaccherini, who struck from 25 metres (yards), as the northeast team remained in the relegation zone along with Cardiff and Fulham. Fulham was the only team in the bottom three to get anything out of Saturdays games, with a 1-1 draw against West Bromwich Albion, but the London club remains at the foot of the standings. It was nearly the perfect start for Felix Magath as Fulham manager after Ashkan Dejagah puts the London club in front at West Brom. But goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg gifted West Brom an equalizer in the 86th when Matej Vydras shot slipped through his hands. Cardiff is now just a point above Fulham after being crushed 4-0 at Hull, which climbed clear of danger as Nikica Jelavic scored twice between strikes from Tom Huddlestone and Jake Livermore. At Upton Park, West Hams remarkable revival continued as Southampton was beaten 3-1 to make it four successive victories. After Maya Yoshida headed Southampton in front in the 8th, Matt Jarvis levelled in the 20th before Carlton Cole, West Ham in front within three minutes and Kevin Nolan added the third in the second half.

Owner Hasso Plattner said Wednesday he was accepting Wilsons recommendation to keep McLellan after the Sharks became just the fourth NHL team ever to lose a best-of-seven playoff series after winning the first three games. "I am very disappointed in the way our team finished the 2013-14 season," Plattner said in a statement. "Gaining a 3-0 series advantage and being unable to advance is a major blow to our organization and fan base. Our teams have been consistently built to go deep into the playoffs and this goal wont change. "Doug Wilson and I have met over the past two weeks. He has shared his support of the coaching staff, as well as his recommended changes to our teams roster, and he has my complete support moving forward." Plattner also thanked fans for their support and said he is not satisfied with the performance the past few seasons and believes a plan is in place to improve on those results. "I am confident that with the proposed changes, Doug and his staff will build a team we can all be proud of," Plattner said. The Sharks have a 271-130-57 record in six seasons under McLellan, posting the second-most wins inn the NHL in that span to Pittsburgh.dddddddddddd San Jose made back-to-back conference finals under McLellan, losing in four games to Chicago in 2010 and in five games the following season to Vancouver. The Sharks have won only one playoff series in McLellans other four seasons, losing in the first round to Anaheim in 2009, St. Louis in 2011 and Los Angeles this season. San Jose swept Vancouver in the first round in 2013 before losing a seven-game series to the Kings. Wilson became general manager in May 2003 and has built playoff teams every season. The Sharks have the second-most points in the regular season the past 10 seasons but are still looking for their first Stanley Cup appearance. The Sharks have most of their key pieces under control for next season after signing captain Joe Thornton and all-time leading goal scorer Patrick Marleau to three-year extensions in January. The most prominent unrestricted free agent is 37-year-old defenceman Dan Boyle. Forwards Bracken Kearns and Mike Brown, defenceman Scott Hannan and backup goalie Alex Stalock are the other unrestricted free agents. The team also could use one of its two compliance buyouts to cut ties with unproductive forward Marty Havlat, who is owed $6 million next season in the final year of his contract.
