This was Jose Mourinho's 15th Premier League defeat as a manager - all of them have come away from Stamford Bridge.

The outcome also meant that Mourinho has suffered successive away losses for the first time since May 2006.

Southampton 4-0 Newcastle United

Newcastle's poor form away from St James' Park continued as they failed to score for the fourth time in five encounters.

Scoring goals has not been a problem for Jay Rodriguez of late, though. The Southampton frontman has now fired in 15, including finding the net at least once in his last four outings.

His teammate, Rickie Lambert, scored what was the 22,500th goal in Premier League history.

Stoke City 1-0 Hull City

The Potters have lost just one of their previous 13 matches in front of their own supporters at the Britannia Stadium.

On the flip side, Hull have only come out with maximum points from one of their last 10 meetings with Stoke.

While Steve Bruce's side have shown good form at the KC Stadium, they've lost 11 times away from home.

One of Cardiff's goalscorers, Steven Caulker, found the net for the fifth time this season, four of which have been scored with his head.

The draw means that West Brom have still only managed to record three wins at The Hawthorns.
