Premier League results: West Brom and Swansea record wins while Everton and Tottenham draw

13 Aug

Leicester began their title defence with a 2-1 defeat at Hull and here’s what happened in the 3pm games…


Burnley 0-1 Swansea
Leroy Fer got the breakthrough at Turf Moor, but supporters were forced to wait until the final 10 minutes to see a goal. The summer signing tapped in a rebound after a Tom Heaton save. Swansea were able to bring on Jefferson Montero and Gylfi Sigurdsson in the second half and took control, although the hosts went close through Sam Vokes and Lukasz Fabianski dived superbly to his left to keep Dean Marney out.

Crystal Palace 0-1 West Brom
Salomon Rondon scored the only goal of the game, heading in James McClean’s free-kick in a game Yannick Bolasie started on the bench. However, he replaced the very impressive Lee Chung-yong in a poor game.

Everton 1-1 Tottenham
Ross Barkley’s free-kick after just five minutes – even though he didn’t mean it – opened the scoring. The Everton man’s floated ball missed everyone and sailed in, while Hugo Lloris went off injured during the first half. Erik Lamela headed Spurs level in a game where they didn’t look like being able to break through. By the end of the second 45 minutes, though, they will feel they should have won. A very good game.

Middlesbrough 1-1 Stoke
Alvaro Negredo scored on his Riverside debut thanks to good play from Albert Adomah and Gaston Ramirez, but a Xherdan Shaqiri free-kick denied Boro a win on their return to the Premier League with 25 minutes remaining.

Southampton 1-1 Watford
Nathan Redmond, on his first appearance for Southampton, rescued a point for Claude Puel’s side. Etienne Capoue had opened the scoring with his first Premier League goal for Watford, lashing in a shot from 12 yards from a Troy Deeney knockdown though the Hornets saw Ben Watson sent off late on for a foul on Shane Long.
