Wilfried Zaha scored the winner as Crystal Palace stunned reigning champions Chelsea to pick up their first victory of the Premier League season.


Palace had lost all seven of their previous games – including three under new boss Roy Hodgson – and had failed to score.

They finally ended their 731 minute wait for a goal when Yohan Cabaye forced the ball down off his chest, which bounced off David Luiz and into the back of the net off Chelsea defender Cesar Azpilicueta.

Palace’s lead lasted only eight minutes as Cesc Fabregas’ corner was headed in by Tiemoue Bakayoko.

But Zaha, on his return from injury, made it 2-1 just before the break and Hodgson’s side held on despite an onslaught from the Blues in the second half.

The win does not move Palace off the bottom of the table, but they have reduced the gap from safety to four points.

Chelsea, meanwhile, stay fourth but are now nine points behind leaders Manchester City.



Tottenham recorded their first Premier League victory at Wembley as Christian Eriksen’s second-half winner saw off a resolute Bournemouth.

Having picked up maximum points from their four league games on the road this season, it was Spurs’ first win in four attempts at their temporary home.

Bournemouth’s back five stifled Spurs in the first half, but Eriksen gave the hosts the lead immediately after the break with a smart left-footed finish.

Jermain Defoe almost levelled against his old side after coming off the bench, but Hugo Lloris was equal to the striker’s low effort.

It was Tottenham captain Lloris’ second big save of the match after Eric Dier almost turned a Bournemouth corner into his own net in the first half.

Asmir Begovic was kept busier at the other end, but got the better of Harry Kane on several occasions in a frustrating afternoon for the England striker.



Belgium midfielder Kevin De Bruyne produced a phenomenal display as Manchester City overwhelmed Stoke and opened up a two-point lead at the top of the Premier League.

The 26-year-old provided three assists and produced one of the passes of the season that led to the second goal as Pep Guardiola’s men returned from the international break to treat the home support to a stunning performance.

City scored three times in the first period and had 83.5% of the possession in what was arguably the most one-sided Premier League half this season.

Gabriel Jesus was the first to find then net when he nipped in ahead of Mame Biram Diouf to prod home. De Bruyne who provided the assist, then threaded a ‘no-look’ pass into the path of Leroy Sane, who fed Raheem Sterling to slot in.

It was 3-0 by the 27th minute when Spain midfielder David Silva slotted in after more good work from Sterling and Sane.

The only surprise of the first 45 minutes was when Diouf’s deflected shot reduced the deficit.

The home side then received another jolt when the Senegal player’s header came off the leg of Kyle Walker, hit the post and beat Ederson in goal.

Any hopes of a fightback, though, were quashed when Jesus smashed in his second from close range via another beautiful De Bruyne delivery.

Fernandinho then produced the goal of the game when he fired a rocket from 25 yards that whistled past Jack Butland in goal.

Belgian De Bruyne’s magic then allowed Sane to slot in the sixth before substitute Bernardo Silva completed the rout when he converted Sterling’s pass.
