Sunderland's prop up the Premier League table after newly promoted Norwich City inflicted a heavy 3-1 defeat on Dick Advocaat's men at the Stadium of Light. Russel Martin and Steven Whittaker netted in the first half before Nathan Redmond struck after the break as Alex Neil claimed his first English top flight win.
Duncan Watmore netted his second senior goal late on but the Black Cats have now conceded seven goals in their first two league games and it leaves Dick Advocaat's position under pressure just five months after keeping the north east club afloat. The Dutch coach is the bookmakers' favourite to become the first manager to lose his job in the Premier League.
Elsewhere, Leicester City maintained their 100% record under Claudio Ranieri and have reclaimed top spot from Manchester United with a 2-1 win at West Ham United. New signing Shinji Okazaki netted his first goal in English football before Riyad Mahrez netted his third of the campaign to put the Foxes in charge and though Dimitri Payet pulled one back before the hour mark the Hammers were unable to stage a second half comeback.
Stoke City however were able to complete a comeback after recovering from two goals down to grab a point against Tottenham Hotspur. Eric Dier headed home and Nacer Chadli made it two but with Harry Kane off injured, Marko Arnautovic converted a penalty as Mame Diouf stole a point for Mark Hughes' men.
Everton fans flew a banner over St Mary's prior to their meeting with Southampton, calling for the exit of chairman Bill Kenwright, but despite their questionable commitment their side delivered with aplomb by securing a handsome 3-0 win on the south coast. Romelu Lukaku struck twice in the first half, after Arouna Kone and Ross Barkley assists, before the England midfielder confirmed the points with a tidy third.
Former transfer target Bafetimbi Gomis came back to haunt 10-man Newcastle United as he scored the first as Swansea cruised to a 2-0 win at the Liberty Stadium. Gomis put the Swans ahead and after Darryl Janmaat was sent off for a second yellow card, Andre Ayew scored his second goal in as many games.
Watford are meanwhile still searching for their first Premier League win since winning promotion from the Championship after a stalemate against West Bromwich Albion. Saido Berhaino started for Tony Pulis' side but they failed to muster a shot on target as the Hornets were frustrated at Vicarage Road.
