Zenit put five past Spartak

Zenit St Petersburg's stunning start to the Premier League season continued as they thrashed Spartak Moscow 5-0.

The result made it four wins from four for Zenit, who took the lead after 15 minutes through Maksim Kanunnikov. They had to wait until seven minutes into the second half to double their lead, through Vladimir Bystrov, before Roman Shirokov added a third after an hour's play.

A double from Viktor Faitzulin (67 and 87) wrapped up the win, with Spartak having won all three of their league games prior to this. Their task was made more difficult by the 63rd-minute dismissal of Irish winger Aiden McGeady.

Lokomotiv Moscow joined third-placed Anzhi Makhachkala on seven points following a 2-2 draw at home to Alania Vladikavkaz.

The Muscovites burst ahead through Roman Pavlyuchenko's third-minute goal but they were pegged back by Anton Grigoriev's sixth-minute equaliser.

Maicon restored Lokomotiv's lead (33) but this time it lasted just four minutes as Tamas Priskin drew Alania level again.

Alania finished the match with 10 men after substitute Aslan Dudiev was sent noff with seven minutes to go.

Terek Grozny moved behind Lokomotiv on goal difference following a 2-0 win at home to Volga as Igor Lebedenko (15 and 90) settled it for the Chechen side.
