Fernando Torres scored his second goal in a week for Chelsea before being given a straight red card for a rash challenge as the 10-man Stamford Bridge outfit swept aside Swansea 4-1 in the Barclays Premier League.

Sunday’s defeat at Manchester United had seen £50million man Torres score for only the second time in his Blues career before producing one of the worst open-goal gaffes in Premier League history.

He found the net with another fine finish before seeing red for inexplicably diving in studs first on Mark Gower in between two Ramires goals which were followed by Ashley Williams’ consolation and a comeback goal for Didier Drogba.

Manchester United’s 100% start to their league campaign came to an end at the Britannia Stadium thanks to Peter Crouch’s first goal for Stoke.

United went into the game without Wayne Rooney – rumoured to have picked up a hamstring injury – and lost Javier Hernandez early on after he was tackled by Jonathan Woodgate, but took the lead in the 27th minute when Nani played a one-two with Darren Fletcher before clipping the ball past Asmir Begovic.

Red Devils goalkeeper David de Gea then pulled off great stops to deny Andy Wilkinson and Jon Walters, but the Spaniard had looked shaky dealing with crosses and it came as little surprise the hosts’ 52nd-minute equaliser came from a corner, which Crouch met with his head to open his account for his new club.

In the early kick-off, second-half substitutes Mario Balotelli and James Milner combined to give Manchester City a 2-0 victory over a stubborn Everton side.

Robin van Persie scored his 100th Arsenal goal as the Gunners put their recent troubles behind them with a comfortable 3-0 victory over 10-man Bolton at the Emirates Stadium. The Dutchman bagged a brace and Alex Song also netted, while Wanderers had David Wheater dismissed.

Liverpool ended their two-match losing run with a 2-1 win over Wolves at Anfield. A Richard Johnson own goal, diverting in Charlie Adam’s shot, and another magical Luis Suarez strike put the Reds in the comfort zone at half-time, although Steven Fletcher pulled one back early in the second half.

Demba Ba announced himself on Tyneside in style with a hat-trick in Newcastle’s 3-1 victory over Blackburn, first-half goals from Rafael van der Vaart and Gareth Bale sealed three points for Tottenham in a 2-1 win at Wigan, while Fulham drew 0-0 at West Brom.
