GRAZIANO PELLE SCORED twice as Southampton sent Newcastle United into the bottom three with a 4-0 win at St Mary’s. Jack Cork and Morgan Schneiderlin were also on target to intensify the pressure on under-fire Magpies boss Alan Pardew.

Meanwhile, Everton claimed their first win of the season with a 2-0 success at West Bromwich Albion.

Romelu Lukaku opened the scoring in the second minute against his former club, pouncing on a loose clearance from Jonas Olsson and curling home, with Kevin Mirallas sealing victory in the 67th minute.

In addition, an own goal by Harry Kane saw Tottenham Hotspur held to a 2-2 draw at Sunderland.

After Nacer Chadli and Adam Johnson had exchanged quick-fire goals, Chadli teed up Christian Eriksen to restore Spurs’ lead, only for Vlad Chiriches’s clearance to hit Kane and bounce in for an own goal in the 82nd minute.

Leicester City secured their first victory since gaining promotion thanks to a second-half effort from new signing Leonardo Ulloa in a 1-0 win at Stoke.
