Shay Given impresses but Jon Walters struggles in Stoke loss at Everton

An unfortunate own goal by goalkeeper Shay Given, after a Leighton Baines penalty kick, gave Everton a 1-0 win over Stoke City.

Mark Hughes says due to the new directive in place at Stoke City, he feared his side would be targeted heavily by referees.

It was another defeat for Mark Hughes' Stoke side but they can take plenty of heart from a performance that in the end was frustratingly undone by a culmination of an over-zealous referee and Jon Walters' inability to put the ball into an open net. It was an end-to-end contest and one the Potters were more than in with a chance of getting a result from but their efforts in the defensive third sadly weren't matched by any inspiration or penetration further up-field as the match ended 1-0.

Klopp's Tottenham test, Tigers for Mourinho as Wenger battles Hornets

ESPN FC's Ale Moreno and Mark Donaldson predict week 3's Premier League fixtures.

Liverpool's trip to Tottenham is the headline match from the final round of Premier League fixtures before the international break. Jurgen Klopp's men will be looking to bounce back following their shock 2-0 defeat at Burnley last time out.

Elsewhere, Manchester United travel to Hull City, who are surprisingly defending a 100 percent record in the Premier League so far. That's not the case for Leicester, though, with the defending champions hosting Swansea still searching for their first win of...

No time for panic, but sense of urgency needed at Stoke ahead of Everton trip

Mark Hughes hopes the new directives for awarding penalties will be followed consistently by Premier League referees.

Having seen his Stoke side beaten 4-1 by Manchester City in their last game, manager Mark Hughes will be disappointed but very much focusing on Saturday's trip to Everton, and with it the possibility of his first win of the season.

Like most of the club's fan base, he'll also be more than aware of the context of his latest defeat in what was just his side's second match of a 38-game campaign. Sadly, much as football has returned, so too have the perennial doom-mongers who greet each slow start...

Stoke punished as Man City make Shawcross and Wollscheid wobble

ESPN FC's Craig Burley looks back at Stoke's defeat at home to Manchester City.

Manchester City's 4-1 win at Stoke on Saturday arguably flattered the visitors but the result was a fair one with the home side largely the architects of their own downfall.

Referee Mike Dean ensured he was a hot topic of conversation by applying the new rules around holding in the penalty area to the letter, with each side being punished and rewarded with a spot kick.

1. Guardiola revolution looks strong

Guardiola maintained his 100 percent start to his Manchester City career as his side came away from a potentially difficult trip to Stoke with all three points.

It looked like it would be a routine victory when Sergio Aguero, who missed two penalties in City's 5-0 Champions League playoff win over Steaua Bucharest in midweek, fired them ahead in the 27th minute from the spot....

Mark Hughes' Stoke an early test of Pep Guardiola's title credentials

Having secured their first point of the new season in a 1-1 draw away at Middlesbrough on the opening day, it's back to the home comforts of the bet365 Stadium for Stoke, who welcome a reinvigorated Manchester City side to town this Saturday.

There's never a good time to play one of the favourites for the title but with their penchant for starting the season slowly, the Potters face a particularly tough test on this occasion. It doesn't help the visitors have found a fresh lease of life under new...
