  • Chelsea beat Everton in goalfest, City crash

    Chelsea overpowered Everton 6-3 in a remarkable game on Saturday to preserve their 100 percent record in the Premier League, after Manchester City were stunned by Stoke City. Jose Mourinho's Chelsea led 2-0, 3-1, and 4-2, but Everton kept coming back at them and it was not until Diego Costa made it 6-3 with his second goal in the last minute that the home side finally admitted defeat at an enraptured Goodison Park. Chelsea were 2-0 up inside three minutes, with Diego Costa tucking away a pass from Cesc Fabregas after only 36 seconds before Ramires teed up Branislav Ivanovic to drill a low shot past Everton goalkeeper Tim Howard.

  • Soccer-Lewandowski scores but Bayern held at Schalke

    * Spaniard Xabi Alonso makes first start for Bayern * Lewandowski opens his account for the Munich club (Releads with Bayern Munich) BERLIN, Aug 30 (Reuters) - Last season's Bundesliga top scorer Robert Lewandowski scored his first competitive goal for new club Bayern Munich but the champions had to settle for a 1-1 draw at Schalke 04 on Saturday. Despite having new signing Xabi Alonso in the Bayern team 24 hours after he joined on a two-year deal from Real Madrid, they looked far from their best as Schalke got their first point to snap a two-game losing run with a gutsy second-half performance.

  • Stuttering Monaco held with Falcao absent

    With Radamel Falcao left out of their side, Monaco continued their stuttering start to the Ligue 1 season on Saturday as they drew 1-1 with Lille at the Stade Louis II. The day started in chaotic fashion for Monaco as Falcao, who had been named in the squad, was withdrawn from the matchday list at the last minute amid increasing speculation that he will leave the principality before the summer transfer window slams shut on Monday. Falcao's replacement in the starting line-up was Dimitar Berbatov and the Bulgarian earned his side a point with a 61st-minute equaliser to cancel out Nolan Roux's first-half opener for the visitors. Leonardo Jardim's side were unable to find a winner and have managed just one victory, and four points, from the first month of the new campaign.

  • Austin strikes to give Redknapp breathing space

    The pressure eased on Harry Redknapp on Saturday as a Charlie Austin goal gave his Queen's Park Rangers side their first points of the season with a 1-0 win over Sunderland. Two defeats in the league -- including a 4-0 thrashing by Redknapp's former club Tottenham Hotspur last weekend -- and a humiliating exit to fourth-tier Burton Albion in the League Cup in midweek had made it a difficult start to the season for Redknapp and his men.

  • Schneiderlin inspires Southampton comeback

    Unsettled midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin scored twice to give Ronald Koeman his first win as Southampton coach with a 3-1 success at West Ham United in the Premier League on Saturday. Schneiderlin hit out at Southampton after being denied a move to Tottenham Hotspur earlier this month, but the 24-year-old France international showed his worth with a brace of goals at Upton Park. Southampton had fallen behind to a deflected Mark Noble strike in the 27th minute, but Schneiderlin scored either side of half-time before Graziano Pelle claimed his first league goal for the south-coast club with seven minutes to play.

  • Zaha helps Warnock mark Palace return in style

    Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha celebrated his return to the club with a stoppage-time equaliser as Neil Warnock began his second spell in charge with a dramatic 3-3 draw against Newcastle on Saturday. Warnock's first act after returning as Palace manager in midweek was to sign Zaha on loan from Manchester United and the England international quickly repaid that faith on his debut at St James' Park. Warnock, hired to replace Tony Pulis, rubbished those rumours when he re-signed Zaha and he received an instant reward when the winger came off the bench to strike in the fifth minute of stoppage-time.

  • City stunned as Diouf gives Stoke shock win

    Manchester City crashed to a shock 1-0 defeat against Stoke as Senegal striker Mame Biram Diouf stunned the Premier League champions on Saturday. Manuel Pellegrini's team were beaten on home turf for the first time in the league since February thanks to Diouf's fine solo run and a poor piece of goalkeeping from City's Joe Hart in the second half at Eastlands. Diouf is a former Manchester United player who failed to make the grade at Old Trafford, but he returned to Manchester in style, netting Stoke's first goal at City in seven visits in the Premier League era to give Potters boss Mark Hughes a sweet victory over the club that sacked him in 2009.

  • Redknapp reveals Remy set for Chelsea switch

    Chelsea are set to sign France striker Loic Remy from Queens Park Rangers before Monday's transfer deadline, according to the Hoops manager Harry Redknapp. Remy was set to start for QPR in their 1-0 Premier League win at home to Sunderland on Saturday, but Redknapp revealed the 27-year-old was pulled out of the team after Chelsea's approach. The Blues are reported to have triggered an £8 million ($13 million, 10.1 million euros) release clause in Remy's contract after settling on the former Marseille forward as a replacement for Spain striker Fernando Torres, who is joining AC Milan on a two-year loan.
