Palace hammer Stoke, Saints edge Swansea

Stoke City’s dismal start to the season continued as they were hammered 4-0 away at Crystal Palace.

Mark Hughes’ men now sit at the bottom of the Premier League whilst Crystal Palace move up to 8th.

Palace built on last week’s away win at Middlesbrough with two first half headers from James Tomkins and Scott Dann in the first 20 minutes.

Despite an improved performance from the Potters in the second half they found themselves three behind when James McArthur's deflected effort found the top corner.

The Eagles were in full flight and they made it 4-0 in the 75th minute when former Spurs player Andre Townsend curled his effort past Shay Given.

Stoke did hit back with a consolation in stoppage time after Marko Arnautovic’s spectacularly finished from outside the box.

Mark Hughe's side will look to rise from the foot of the table with a win against West Brom on the 24th of September while Palace will look to maintain their momentum when they travel to struggling Sunderland.

Southampton manager Claude Puel delivered his first Premier League win as Southampton boss as his side ran out 1-0 winners against Swansea at St Mary’s.

Despite the home team’s dominance, it took until the 64th minute for the Saints to break the deadlock when Charlie Austin brought the ball down before hitting home with a rising shot.

Southampton rued missed chances in the first half to open the scoring when Nathan Redmond missed from 12 yards out, followed by Austin hitting the woodwork.

Francesco Guidolin’s side could have snatched a point at the depth when Gylfi Sigurdsson’s low shot was well-saved by Fraser Forster.

Southampton now sit 14th a place ahead of Swansea who trail the Saints by a point.
