Sunderland’s opening day is up in flames, as Leicester City is romping in one of four Premier League matches at the half.
It’s not a bad day to be a Premier League new boy, with two sides geared up for a point and the other with some fine moments at home.
Leicester City 3-0 Sunderland
Suffice it to say this is not how Jeremain Lens and Dick Advocaat expected Sunderland’s season to start. Riyad Mahrez has a pair of goals as the Foxes scored thrice in 25 minutes to build a lead that’s likely to stand at King Power Stadium.
Norwich City 0-1 Crystal Palace
Alan Pardew continued his strong run at the Eagles bench, as Wilfried Zaha acrobatically hit home Jason Puncheon’s cross to give Palace a lead.

Bournemouth 0-0 Aston Villa
Not much to report from Vitality Stadium, where the Cherries are 45 minutes away from earning a point on their PL debut.
Everton 0-1 Watford
Quique Flores’ plucky Hornets struck when Mexico’s Miguel Layun blasted a loose ball across Tim Howard for a halftime lead in their Premier League return.
