Premier League Roundup: Leicester continues fine form, Westham lose, Swansea held at Sunderland

#BPL Roundup: Leicester continues fine form, Westham lose, Swansea held at Sunderland


Leicester City continued their impressive start to the new league season with some confident display at home against Tottenham Hotspur which earned them a valuable point and shot them back to the top having been temporarily pegged down by Manchester United who were forced to a draw too by Newcastle earlier in the day.

 For much of their efforts going forward, Leicester didn't create any notable chance in the first half and had Jeffrey Schlupp to thank for constantly clearing on the left as Spurs threatened. The Foxes however had a good penalty shout turned down by referee Atkinson with minutes remaining before the restart when Riyad Mahrez was hacked down in the Spurs 18 yard box.

The second half started in a cagey manner and really didn't open up until Dele Alli came off the bench to score his first Tottenham goal, it didn't last long though as Riyad Mahrez scored a golazo barely after restart with his 4th in three games for Leicester this season, the dream lives on at the King Power Stadium

Crystal Palace bounced back from last weekend from a defeat to Arsenal with a late Bakari Sako goal, the first half saw plenty of possession for the Eagles but wasteful finishing saw the game ending goalless at halftime.

Papi Ndiaye Souare would feel unlucky to av directed the ball into his own net after Scott Dan had given the hosts the lead, but he can take joy in the fact that it didn't cost them anything in the end.

Man of the match Scott Dan had directed the ball nicely behind the Aston Villa defense and was neatly met by Sako who made no mistakes for Crystal Palace' first home win of the campaign

West ham certainly over achieved at the Emirates on the opening day as they were undone again by a resilient AFC Bournemouth.

Two quick goals from Callum Wilson and the visitors were up and seemingly unassailable, but in what proved to be a game of two halves, the hammers surged back and equalized within ten minutes of the restart, first it was Mark Noble from the spot before Cheikhou Kouyate leveled five minutes later.

Bournemouth were not to relinquish advantage however as they countered again and scored, Marc Pugh getting on the score sheet. It went from bad to worse for the home side on the 79th minute when Carl Jenkison was sent off for a professional foul, the resulting penalty was dispatched emphatically by Callum Wilson for his first premier league hatrick and the first in the EPL this term, Modibo Maiga pulled one back in the closing stages but the late surge amounted to nothing as the new boys ran out winners on the day.



Sunderland and Swansea played out a 1:1 draw at the stadium of light to hand the home side their first point of the league season, Bafetimbi Gomis scored again at the stroke of halftime as predicted by most bookies but Jermain Defoe leveled matters just after the hour mark.

In a tempestuous match that produced six yellow cards, Swansea looked all set to win having dominated for so long but Sunderland showed some character to hold on and avert another loss that would have placed them rock bottom again.

Dick Advocaat handed Jeremin Lens his first start at home while Gary Monk kept fate with Gomis and Ayew upfront, the first chance saw a lot of end to end stuff as both teams pushed for the opener but it was Swansea who headed into the break ahead after Befetimbi Gomis fired the visitors in front just before the referee signaled halftime, he has three in three now and Swansea has another impressive point from a tricky trip.




Norwich City
held Stoke City to a 1:1 draw at Carrow road in an entertaining game, Xedan Shakiri was handed a start and he proved vital as Mark Hugh's men pegged Norwich back all afternoon.

Mame Biram Diouf scored for the second time after last week's late header at Tottenham and gave the Potters the lead in the 11th minute, Russell Martin however headed the hornets back into the game just before the half hour mark.

It was all Stoke in the second half however but some spirited defending from Norwich earned the home side a deserved point and some respite as they now have four points from a possible nine having won away at Sunderland last time out.
