West Ham captain Mark Noble believes a "special" last-gasp win at Everton capped a pivotal week for the club.

Three league wins in eight days have catapulted West Ham into contention for the top four and an historic shot at the Champions League.

"We've had some amazing results lately - like Spurs on Wednesday (a 1-0 win) - but for team spirit that was fantastic," Noble said.

"We are delighted as you can imagine. It just shows you what we have got this year.

"This team spirit, desire and never-give-up attitude we have got is amazing.

"We know we are a good team, we have proved it over the last eight or nine months, but that was a little bit special.

"There are still 27 points to play for. There were a lot of draws but, like we have this week, if you put a few wins together you are back up there.

"To come away with three wins is fantastic and massive credit to the club."

Leicester City have announced Jamie Vardy has signed a new deal until 2019.

The Premier League leaders have tied down the division's 18-goal leading scorer to end any speculation over his future.

Vardy's contract had been due to expire in 2018 and he has now handed City's title hopes another huge boost following their 3-1 win at rivals Manchester City.

Vardy said: "I'm absolutely delighted to be fighting to achieve something special with this club, as part of this squad. I've never known a spirit like it - from the owners, to the manager and his staff, the players and the fans. I want to be part of it for a long time."

Thousands of Liverpool fans voted with their feet in protest at ticket prices as Anfield witnessed its first walkout in its 132-year history.

Supporters' groups organised the action for the 77th minute of the match against Sunderland (read the match report) after a £77 match ticket (up from £59) and a £1,000 season ticket for next season were announced this week.

The club argued the new structure - which includes 45 per cent of match tickets decreasing in price, 64 per cent of season tickets being reduced or staying the same in cost, better availability for local fans and around 1,500 £9 tickets for category C games - offers greater accessibility and affordability.

However, that was not enough to placate fans' groups as upwards of an estimated 10,000 of the 44,179 inside the stadium got up and left their seats in the 77th minute, with long queues forming for the exit.

Leicester boss Claudio Ranieri refused to accept his team are now title favourites after their sensational 3-1 win at Manchester City.

The surprise Premier League leaders opened up a six-point lead over Manuel Pellegrini's men - the side many expect to take the crown - with a near-perfect display at the Etihad Stadium.

One leading bookmaker immediately made Leicester - 5,000/1 outsiders at the start of the season - the new 7/4 favourites for the title.

But Ranieri, aware he was the one-time hot favourite in the 'sack race', said: "I don't believe the bookmakers. At the beginning of the season the bookmakers said, 'sack Ranieri'. I hope one time they are right!"
