Swansea continued their impressive start to the season with a 2-0 win over 10-man Newcastle United at Liberty Stadium on Saturday.     

Bafetimbi Gomis gave the Welsh side an early lead and the hosts were boosted by Daryl Janmaat’s sending off four minutes from half-time.

Andre Ayew made it 2-0 shortly after the break heading the ball home from a Jefferson Montero cross.

The Swans saw out the game without any real incident and secured their first win of the new campaign.


At White Hart Lane, Tottenham threw away a two-goal lead against Stoke having gone 2-0 up by half-time to end the tie 2-2.

Eric Dier and Nacer Chadli’s efforts were cancelled out by a Marko Arnautovic penalty and Mame Biram Diouf in the space of five second-half minutes.

Early relegation headache starts for Sunderland after another defeat this time at home to Norwich.


They were 2-0 down in the first half after Russell Martin opened the scoring from close range when the ball fell to him after Costel Pantilimon parried it into his path from a Robbie Brady shot.

Steven Whittaker made it two with some excellent passing between him and Wes Hoolahan and Nathan Redmond got in on the action after the break to score the third.

Premier League debutant, Duncan Watmore, scored a late consolation for the hosts.

Watford and West Brom ended their game 0-0 at Vicarage Road, despite the home side’s dominance.


At Saint Mary’s, Romelu Lukaku struck twice in the first half as Everton clinched an impressive victory on Saturday lunchtime.

The Belgian striker supplied the finish to a fine breakaway goal halfway through the opening period, just after Tim Howard had denied Sadio Mane.

Lukaku then swept home from Ross Barkley’s through ball to double the lead just before half-time.

Graziano Pelle missed the Saints’ best opportunity to pull a goal back and they paid for it as Barkley scored a third in the dying minutes to end the game 3-0.
