Premier League round up: Westham lost their mojo, Saints caught unawares, Norwich joy at Sunderland [Match report]

#EPL round up: Westham lost their mojo, Saints caught unawares, Norwich joy at Sunderland


In the lunchtime kickoff of round two in the Barclays premier league, two teams who had similar results under similar circumstances in similar fashion met at the St Mary's stadium.

Southampton were odds on to beat Everton at home, not this time as Roberto Martinez and Co had other plans, Romelu Lukaku came too prepared to right the wrongs of last weekend as he romped past the saints defense to grab a brace and it could have been more had Dutch recruit Stekelenburg not been alert enough.

A pin point Kone cross was met thankfully by a lurking Lukaku for the opener, the latter picked a Ross Barkley pass to notch the second just before halftime. Mane was closest to scoring for the hosts but Tim Howard didn't have none of his blinks, just when it was poised at finishing 0:2.

Ross Barkley once again took laws into his own hands, having been fed with a tasteful chip, the young Brit cut inside the right before curling an effort past the former Roma and Fulham man in the Saints goal... Everton ran out 3:0 winners for their first victory at st. Mary's in decades


Swansea and Newcastle also had same fate in their openers, 2:2 draws at both venues, but it was Swansea who had a day to remember in Wales.

Jonjo Shelvey threaded a delicate ball to the path of Bafetimbi Gomis who rounded Tim Krul one time and send the hosts ahead, from there it was all Swansea as Jefferson Montero struck the underside of the upright later on.

It went from bad to worse for the Magpies as Janmaat was sent off for second bookable offense just before halftime.

Sigurdsson had an effort cannoned off the crossbar just after the restart before Ghanaian striker Andre Ayew headed home the second, his second in as many games, all smiles for Gary Monk and despair for Steve McLauren.


Tottenham hosted Stoke in a game of similar feelings again, they both lost their openers at Old Trafford and Brittania respectively in 1:0 defeats, returning Spurs skipper Hugo Lloris almost handed Diouf a gift early on when he miscued into his path but the Senegalese forward couldn't get past the Frenchman.

Eric Dier calmed the nerves of the home fans minutes later when he headed home from Eriksen's corner, one became two afterwards when Belgium winger Nacer Chadli volleyed past Butland for Spurs' second just before half-time.

It took one moment of rash carelessness from new boy Toby Alderwield to get Stoke back into the game, a 77th minute penalty drilled to the bottom left by Marco Arnatovich halved the deficit, Stoke's next foray into the Tottenham box provided the equalizer, poor defending saw Diouf head past Lloris from close range to share the spoils to the dismay of the home fans


The misery of Sunderland continues as newly promoted Norwich City dealt them another blow, Russel Martin and Stephen Whittaker scored first half goals to give the visitors the lead.

Sunderland as always did the running all in futility as Nathan Redmond heaped more on them just before Duncan Moore gave them an 88th minute consolation. The game started in cagey manners as chances were hard to come by, Sunderland obviously missed Adam Johnson as Jeremin Lens only did little out wide.

Norwich now have three points having lost at home in their opener to Crystal Palace, and Sunderland rooted to the bottom of the log having suffered similar fate as the hornets in their opener away at Leicester City.


Talking about Leicester City, they came, they saw and conquered at Upton Park and seemed to show Arsenal how to beat Westham, Shinji Okazaki opened scoring in the 27th minute after some shambolic Hammers defending before last week hero Riyad Mahrez picked up from where he stopped by adding the second.

Hammers midfield was canceled out as Reece Oxford went missing all afternoon long, the hero at Emirates Stadium was checkmated this time by a tactical Ranieri Diamond formation, the 16 year old probably couldn't stand the effects of back to back EPL games, shouldn't Bilic know better? He however shipped him out at halftime for Pedro Mba Obiang.

New boy Dimitri Payet scored after the restart to half the deficit and offer some hope of a share in the spoils but the Foxes held on and there was still time for Adrian to be sent off when he lunged dangerously at Jamie Vardy in the first minute of added time, play stopped a while to attend to the injured Foxes forward as Leicester saw off the rest for a famous win that returned them to the summit of the league on goal difference.


It was stalemate at Vicarage Road on Saturday as new boys Watford held Westbrom to a goalless draw, the visitors had new signing Jose Solomon Rondon on the bench as Berahino starts upfront. it was all Watford all afternoon though as the hosts muscled out 7 shots on target to the visitors none and had 65% of the possession. Boaz Myhill made fantastic saves to deny Ighalo and Troy Deeney in the first half.

Tony Pulis brought on his record signing in the 62nd minute and almost made an instant impact as he headed wide from a James Morrison cross, Watford kept probing but the baggies held on for their first point of the campaign, two in two for Watford who would feel they could have gotten more from a match they largely dominated.
