Premier League scores and review: Saturday 1 September
There were wins for West Ham, West Brom and Manchester City on Saturday, with the other three Premier League matches resulting in a draw and two of them were by a 2-2 scoreline.
September 1st, 2012
West Ham and Fulham kicked off proceedings at Upton Park, with the Hammers flying out of the traps to lead 3-0 at half-time, an advantage they held come the final whistle. Kevin Nolan, Winston Reid and Matt Taylor were on the scoresheet and Andy Carroll had a debut to remember.
West Bromwich Albion’s bright start to the campaign continued by beating an in-form Everton side 2-0, something which means they have taken seven points from matches against Liverpool, Spurs and the Toffees.
Steven Fletcher scored twice on his debut for Sunderland to help the Black Cats land a point against a Swansea team that continued their free-scoring ways thanks to goals from Wayne Routledge and Michu.
Wigan and Stoke also shared a 2-2 draw at the DW Stadium, with Shaun Moloney and Jonathan Walters exchanging penalties before Franco Di Santo put the Latics back in front. However, Peter Crouch was on hand to equalise.
Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas is already under some pressure at White Hart Lane after Norwich landed a 1-1 draw at White Hart Lane, although there were no such slip-ups for champions Manchester City who eased to a 3-1 win against QPR.
