Callum Wilson scored a hat-trick as Bournemouth picked up their first-ever Barclays Premier League victory at the expense of 10-man West Ham.


The visitors dominated the first half at Upton Park and looked to be cruising to a historic three points when striker Wilson netted twice inside 30 minutes.

But the hosts came back after the break, with Mark Noble’s 48th-minute penalty and Cheikhou Kouyate’s close-range finish in the 53rd minute pulled the Hammers level.

The Cherries reclaimed the lead after Marc Pugh fired in before Wilson completed his hat-trick from the spot.


Modibo Maiga reduced the deficit again just three minutes later, but Bournemouth managed to hold on to secure a 4-3 win.

Manchester United maintained their unbeaten start to the season with a 0-0 draw against Newcastle United that highlighted goal scoring remains a concern for the Red Devils.

The home side commanded 70 percent of possession and had 20 shots at goal without managing to break through.


Bakary Sako scored a late winner on his Crystal Palace debut to beat Aston Villa 2-1 at Selhurst Park.

Palace took the lead on 71 minutes through Scott Dann’s towering header from a well-worked corner, but Villa were level just six minutes later courtesy of Pape Souare’s unfortunate own goal.

The home side scored the winner when Jordan Amavi gifted possession to Dann in a dangerous position. He duly passed the ball to Sako who put away his shot to secure the victory.

At the Stadium of Light, Sunderland halted their nightmare start to the season as Jermain Defoe’s second-half strike rescued a 1-1 draw with Swansea.


The Black Cats dominated the opening exchanges, but it was Swansea who broke the deadlock through Bafetimbi Gomis who has now scored three goals in three games.

Sunderland pressed for the equaliser and it deservedly came on the hour mark when Defoe, played in from Jeremain Lens’ through ball, coolly slotted home.

Norwich City came from behind to seal a hard-fought 1-1 draw at home to Stoke.

Mame Biram Diouf headed in debutant Xherdan Shaqiri’s free-kick to put Stoke in front in the 13th minute, but Canaries defender Russell Martin shot through the legs of Stoke keeper Jack Butland to level the scores before half-time.


At the King Power Stadium, Tottenham were left frustrated as Riyad Mahrez’s fourth goal of the season saw Leicester fight back to seal a 1-1 draw.

Youngster Dele Alli opened the scoring with his first Spurs goal in the 81st minute but the Foxes mustered an immediate response as French winger Mahrez curled the ball home past Huge Lloris on 82 minutes to claim a deserved point.
