Mauricio Pochettino's Tottenham debut ended in dramatic victory as Eric Dier grabbed an injury-time winner against West Ham at Upton Park.

England Under-21 defender Dier, on his debut after a summer move from Sporting Lisbon, scored three minutes into injury time as a game full of controversy ended 1-0 to the visitors.

Earlier, Spurs had Kyle Naughton harshly sent off for handball on 30 minutes, but Mark Noble missed the resulting penalty, and the game ended 10-apiece with West Ham defender James Collins also dismissed for a second bookable offence.

Leicester's return to the top flight started with a thrilling 2-2 draw against Everton.

Aidan McGeady gave last season's Europa League qualifiers Everton the lead at the King Power Stadium with a superb 20th minute goal, only to see Nigel Pearson's side equalise moments later through debut boy Leo Ulloa.

Steven Naismith popped up to give Everton the lead again seconds before half-time but Chris Wood grabbed a late equaliser for the resilient Foxes.

It proved to be a good day for the away sides, started off by Swansea City who claimed a surprise 2-1 win over Manchester United at Old Trafford to spoil Louis van Gaal's league bow.

Ki Sung-yueng gave Swansea the lead on 28 minutes but Wayne Rooney responded eight minutes after half-time with a sensational overhead kick.

However, a goal from Gylfi Sigurdsson 18 minutes from time ensured United tasted defeat at home on the opening day of the season for the first time since 1972.

Aston Villa also won on their travels, with Andi Weimann's 50th minute goal the difference as they took three points at Stoke, who got off to a disappointing start considering their positive summer transfer business.

And Hull City picked up where they left off last season with a 1-0 win over playoff winners QPR.

The Tigers grabbed the only goal on 52 when defender James Chester brushed off Rio Ferdinand to head home but they were indebted to keeper Allan McGregor, who made a late penalty save from Charlie Austin, for their victory.

West Brom and Sunderland played out an exciting 2-2 draw at The Hawthorns, where Lee Cattermole got the visitors off to a quick start with a fifth minute goal.

Saido Berahino levelled from the penalty spot three minutes before half-time and put the home side in front on 74, but Sebastian Larsson earned Gus Poyet's side a point five minutes before the final whistle.

There was more drama in the late game with Crystal Palace enduring a horrible end to a horrible week against Arsenal at the Emirates, where Keith Millen was again in caretaker charge of the Eagles after Tony Pulis' shock departure on Thursday.

Palace debutant Brede Hangeland gave Palace the lead on 35 minutes but Laurent Koscielny equalised on the verge of half-time and, seconds after Jason Puncheon was shown a red card, Aaron Ramsey earned the Gunners three points in the first minute of stoppage time.

t's a bloody good goal, though. Sh!t, the kid's gonna be the worlds best before we know it, isn't he? He's got the touch of genius in him. Like Neymar, but with muscles and stuff. He's doing a Ronaldo as we watch. He's bulked up to be able to ride the tackles, but he's improved technically as well. His touch is sublime. Bugger.
