• Champions Leicester beat Swansea for first win of the season

    (Reuters) - Defending Premier League champions Leicester City got their first win of the season as Jamie Vardy's trademark first-half strike and Wes Morgan's second-half effort were enough to see off Swansea City 2-1 in wet conditions at the King Power Stadium on Saturday. In an attacking move that became a familiar sight during Leicester's title-winning campaign, Vardy was picked out by a long-range ball from Danny Drinkwater from inside his own half in the 32nd minute, and made no mistake when one-on-one against Lukasz Fabianski. Morgan added a second in the 52nd minute after reacting the fastest to slam home from close range after Swansea failed to clear their lines, before Leroy Fer pulled one back for the visitors in the 80th minute, meeting Modou Barrow's cross with a superb header.

  • Klopp disappointed as Liverpool haunted by familiar failings

    Juergen Klopp was again left to rue Liverpool's profligacy in front of goal after their 1-1 Premier League draw with Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday as familiar failings prevented the visitors from taking all three points. Liverpool rediscovered the attacking menace they showed in their opening 4-3 victory over Arsenal but which deserted them during last weekend's toothless showing against Burnley. The visitors' relentless pressing and fluid movement led to Erik Lamela fouling Roberto Firmino in the box before James Milner stepped up to slam his penalty past Michel Vorm and give the visitors the lead.
