LONDON: Two late goals from Aaron Ramsey and Olivier Giroud rescued a 2-2 draw for Arsenal at Everton in the second weekend of the Premier League.

Roberto Martinez’s side looked to be coasting to an easy 2-0 win thanks to goals from Seamus Coleman and Steven Naismith, but their defence crumbled in the final minutes to gift the Gunners a point.

First, Ramsey bundled home a Santi Cazorla cross and then, with 30 seconds to go, Giroud headed past Tim Howard thanks to some sloppy marking from Sylvain Distin.

Diego Costa opened the scoring as Chelsea made it two wins in a row with a 2-0 triumph over Leicester at Stamford Bridge.

The Spain striker, who opened his account with a goal on debut in the Blues’ 3-1 opening victory at Burnley on Monday night, pounced again from inside the penalty box to put Jose Mourinho’s side ahead against the promoted visitors just after the hour.

Eden Hazard added a second goal with an effort 13 minutes from time to put the result beyond doubt, with the biggest cheer of the day reserved for the late introduction of Didier Drogba in place of Costa.

Nathan Dyer’s goal earned Swansea a 1-0 victory against Burnley at the Liberty Stadium.

The winger latched on to a superb through-ball from Gylfi Sigurdsson and struck midway through the first half to extend the Swans’ 100 per cent start after their success at Manchester United.

Managerless Crystal Palace went down 3-1 at home to West Ham. Mauro Zarate, Stewart Downing and Carlton Cole were the men on target for Sam Allardyce’s side, who claimed a first victory of the season after their last-gasp home defeat to Tottenham.

Marouane Chamakh had halved the deficit for the Eagles just after the break, but it proved to be in vain.

Southampton and West Bromwich Albion remained in search of their first wins after a goalless draw at St Mary’s provided the first point for new Saints boss Ronald Koeman.

Ten-man Newcastle registered their first point of the new season from a 0-0 draw with Aston Villa in the lunchtime kick-off.

The game at Villa Park was one of few real chances, particularly in the first half, with Magpies midfielder Remy Cabella sending one wide when he might have done better. The visitors had further opportunities just after the break, with Daryl Janmaat having a header pushed over by Villa goalkeeper Brad Guzan and firing a shot just off-target.

Magpies substitute and debutant Siem de Jong was then denied by Guzan save towards the end before Mike Williamson was sent off in the final seconds after collecting two yellow cards in quick succession.
