Matchday 7 of the 2014/15 Barclays Premier League season had six fixtures take place on Saturday. Hull City recorded just their second win of the campaign with a 2-0 result at home over Crystal Palace thanks to second-half goals from Mohamed Diame and Nikica Jelavic.
Diame netted his third goal for his new club in his fifth outing with a 60th-minute header while Jelavic came up with his fourth of the season just before the final whistle.
There was also a clean sheet for veteran Steve Harper who took the gloves in the absence of the injured Allan McGregor as Steve Bruce's side moved up to eighth.
Liverpool went sixth on the table with their third win of the season as Adam Lallana and Jordan Henderson scored either side of Saido Berahino's 56th-minute penalty in their 2-1 win over West Bromwich Albion at Anfield.
At the Stadium of Light, Sunderland produced their very first triumph of the campaign by beating Stoke City 3-1 thanks to a brace from Steven Fletcher and an early opener from Connor Wickham while Charlie Adam was on the scoresheet for the Potters.
Ten of the goalscorers in the five early games on Saturday had scored their first Premier League goals of 2014/15 with Adam, Wilfried Bony, Fletcher (first goals after a 16-match drought), Wickham, Kightly, Schlupp, Mahrez, Henderson, Lallana and Wallace all registering for the first time this term while Wayne Routledge netted against his former club in Swansea's draw with the Toon.
And in Birmingham, reigning champions Manchester City left it late before breaking down a determined Aston Villa defence with two goals in the final eight minutes courtesy of Yaya Toure and Sergio Aguero for a 2-0 win.
