The Spain international scored on his competitive debut in Chelsea's 3-1 win at Burnley on Monday night and he finally managed to beat Kasper Schmeichel on 63 minutes at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

Eden Hazard made sure of the points with a goal 13 minutes from time as Jose Mourinho's men made it two wins from two to kick off the 2014-15 campaign.

Chelsea and Swansea City are the only teams to have won two games (five more opening weekend winners play on Sunday and Monday), with Garry Monk's side running out 1-0 winners at home to Burnley.

Nathan Dyer scored the only goal of the game at the Liberty Stadium in the 27th minute to leave Burnley bottom of the table, one of five teams yet to claim a point.

Alongside them are Crystal Palace, whose bad week got just a little bit worse when they slumped to a 3-1 defeat at home to West Ham.

Mauro Zarate scored his first Premier League goal to put West Ham in front on 34 minutes at Selhurst Park and Stewart Downing added to their lead with a rare goal three minutes later.

Marouane Chamakh gave caretaker boss Keith Millen brief hope just after half-time, but Carlton Cole's 62nd minute strike sealed three points for Sam Allardyce's men.

Both of Saturday's other afternoon games ended goalless, with Aston Villa failing to beat 10-man Newcastle, who had Mike Williamson sent-off, in the lunchtime game at Villa Park.

And Southampton were held to a 0-0 draw by West Brom at St Mary's, the home side picking up their first point of the season and Alan Irvine's side drawing their second consecutive game.

In the day's late game, Arsenal staged a dramatic comeback to hold Everton to a 2-2 draw as late goals from Aaron Ramsey and Olivier Giroud cancelled out first-half efforts from Seamus Coleman and Steven Naismith.

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
