Manchester United and Bournemouth secured big victories while Brighton's relegation fears intensified in Saturday's Premier League action.
Paul Pogba scored twice from the penalty spot as Manchester United rode their luck to edge to a 2-1 win over West Ham at Old Trafford.
Ryan Babel then notched his fourth goal of the season (69) during a team performance that provided plenty of encouragement for the hosts heading into next season and belied Fulham's position as one of the two teams already relegated.
The win moved Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side to within two points of the Premier League's top four but the result was harsh on the Hammers.
Felipe Anderson saw an early opener wrongly ruled out for offside, but the
Brazilian cancelled out Pogba's first, contentiously-awarded penalty shortly after half-time.
Michail Antonio rattled the crossbar and had another effort superbly saved by David De Gea before Pogba smashed home his second penalty to earn United victory that moved them up to fifth.
Lucas Moura struck a hat-trick as Tottenham continued to revel in their new home comforts as they cruised to a 4-0 win over already-relegated Huddersfield.
Moura became the first player to hit a treble in Spurs' new home, in which they stretched their winning run to three games and moved up to third in the table.
Victor Wanyama put the hosts in front after 24 minutes and two minutes later Moura made it 2-0 when he fired a low shot into the bottom corner.
Boss Mauricio Pochettino, who was without the injured Harry Kane and Dele Alli had gambled on also leaving Son Heung-min on the bench ahead of their Champions League quarter-final second leg at Manchester City.
But when Moura made it 3-0 after 87 minutes substitute Son still managed to play his part as he played through the Brazilian to complete his hat-trick in stoppage time.
Cardiff were plunged deeper into relegation trouble after Chris Wood scored twice to give Burnley a controversial 2-0 win at Turf Moor.
Wood headed home from a Dwight McNeil corner to cap a dominant first-half performance but Neil Warnock's side were seething early in the second period after being denied a penalty.
Referee Mike Dean originally penalised Burnley defender Ben Mee for handball but then reversed his decision, much to the evident displeasure of the visiting players and manager.
Burnley made the most of their reprieve as they continued to dominate the game and Wood nodded home his second from point-blank range in the last minute.
Cardiff's survival hopes could now rest on their midweek trip to ailing Brighton who were hammered 5-0 at home by Bournemouth.
Dan Gosling gave the visitors the half-time advantage and Ryan Fraser added a second before Brighton's Anthony Knockaert was sent off for a dreadful lunge on
Eddie Howe's side wrapped up an emphatic victory with further goals from David Brooks, Callum Wilson and Junior Stanislas.
Nathan Redmond's first-half double sent Southampton on their way towards safety as they wrapped up a 3-1 win over Wolves.
Willy Boly's header after 28 minutes had temporarily hauled the visitors back on level terms but Redmond put Saints back in front two minutes later, and Shane Long secured the points after 71.
Tom Cairney struck his first Premier League goal early in the second half and Ryan Babel clipped his side's second over Jordan Pickford to secure Scott Parker's first win as caretaker boss.
