Aaron Ramsey maintained Arsenal's late-season charge by clinching a 1-0 win at relegation-threatened Burnley, an eighth successive victory that keeps the team's faint title hopes alive.

No other team has enjoyed such a winning run in the league this season, but earlier inconsistency has proved costly for Arsene Wenger's title ambitions.

Although the Gunners are second - four points behind Chelsea - the leaders have two games in hand on their London rivals.

Securing the win at chilly Turf Moor was hard work for Arsenal, with the tenacious hosts a constant threat after Ramsey's 12th-minute strike through a congested penalty area.

Burnley is in the drop zone, two points from safety, but has beaten Manchester City and held Tottenham here in the last month.

Results:

Burnley 0-1 Arsenal 

Southampton 2-0 Hull City

Sunderland 1-4 Crystal Palace

Swansea City 1-1 Everton

Tottenham 0-1 Aston Villa

West Brom 2-3 Leicester

West Ham 1-1 Stoke
