Paris - Tunisian Wahbi Khazri marked his Sunderland home
debut by scoring one and setting up the winner in a crucial victory over
Burkina Faso's Bertrand Traore scored his first Premier
League goal as Chelsea thrashed Newcastle and Senegal's Khouma Babacar knocked
in Fiorentina's winner over Inter Milan.
WAHBI KHAZRI (Sunderland)
Tunisian playmaker Khazri crowned his home debut by
inspiring second-bottom Sunderland to a memorable 2-1 victory over Manchester
United. The 25-year-old midfielder, a January signing from Bordeaux, opened the
scoring with a third-minute free-kick from wide on the left that crept in at
the far post and teed up Ivorian team-mate Lamine Kone for the header that
yielded the decisive goal in the 82nd minute. Kone headed Khazri's right-wing
corner towards goal and Anthony Martial's attempted clearance rebounded off
goalkeeper David de Gea and into the net for an own goal.
BERTRAND TRAORE (Chelsea)
Traore, 20, scored his first Premier League goal to seal
Chelsea's 5-1 rout of Newcastle United at Stamford Bridge. The Burkina Faso
international, a second-half replacement for Diego Costa, got his name on the
score-sheet in the 83rd minute, steering in a right-wing cross from Cesar
EMMANUEL ADEBAYOR (Crystal Palace)
Togo striker Adebayor found the net in a Premier League
match for the first time since October 2014 in his new side's 2-1 home defeat
by Watford. A January signing from Tottenham Hotspur, the former Arsenal,
Manchester City and Real Madrid looped a header into the top-right corner from
Connor Wickham's cross. But goals either side by Troy Deeney condemned Palace
to a ninth league game without a win.

KOLO TOURE (Liverpool)
Veteran Ivorian centre-back Toure ended a five-year wait for
a Premier League goal in Liverpool's 6-0 demolition of bottom club Aston Villa.
The 34-year-old completed the scoring in the 71st minute with a free header
from Jordan Henderson's cross. His last goal had come in Manchester City's 4-3
win over Wolverhampton Wanderers in January 2011.
KELECHI IHEANACHO (Manchester City)
Nigerian teenager Iheanacho scored in vain as City's title
hopes were dented by a 2-1 home defeat at the hands of Tottenham Hotspur. The
19-year-old striker replaced Fernando in the 66th minute and found the net
within eight minutes, slamming home left-footed from Gael Clichy's cut-back to
cancel out Harry Kane's opener. Christian Eriksen's late goal gave Tottenham
victory, leaving Iheanacho and City six points off the summit.
FAYCAL FAJR (Deportivo la Coruna)
Moroccan midfielder Fajr scored his fourth goal of the
season as Deportivo came from behind to draw 2-2 at home to Real Betis to
remain firmly in mid-table.
SOFIANE FEGHOULI (Valencia)
Algerian international Feghouli played a vital role in Gary
Neville's first league win as Valencia boss with the cross from which Denis
Cheryshev headed home the winner in a 2-1 victory against Espanyol.
SEREY DIE (VfB Stuttgart)
Ivory Coast midfielder claimed his first goal of the season
to help resurgent Stuttgart picked up their fifth straight league win with a
2-0 win at home to Hertha Berlin. Die unleashed a long-range strike on 51
minutes before left winger Filip Kostic sealed the hosts' win with the second
on 84 minutes.
PIERRE-EMERICK AUBAMEYANG (Borussia Dortmund)
Having picked up a knock in midweek, Aubameyang missed his
first league game of the season as Henrikh Mkhitaryan's goal sealed Borussia's
1-0 win over bottom side Hanover. In Aubameyang's absence, Bayern Munich's
Robert Lewandowski took the chance to score twice in the 3-1 win at Augsburg to
overtake 'Auba' as the league's top scorer with 21 goals in his 20 league
SERGE AURIER (PSG)
Ivory Coast defender Aurier, 23, hit the headlines for
events off the pitch when a video on social media emerged in which he appeared
to call PSG coach Laurent Blanc a "faggot". Although he apologised,
he was suspended and he will play no part in Tuesday's Champions League last
16, first leg against Chelsea in Paris.
KHOUMA BABACAR (Fiorentina)
Senegal's Babacar replaced Josip Ilicic in the second half
as La Viola fought for a late winner at home to 10-man Inter Milan in Florence,
and came up trumps at the death when he bundled a rebound into the net at the
second attempt to secure a 2-1 win. It moved Fiorentina up to third at eight
points behind leaders Juventus and two points ahead of Roma, in fourth.
MOHAMED SALAH (Roma)
Four days before Roma welcome Real Madrid to the capital for
the first leg of a Champions League last-16 clash, Salah was in scintillating
form for the Giallorossi in a gutsy 3-1 win away to league new boys Carpi. The
Egyptian provided the assist as Edin Dzeko got back to scoring ways, hit the
bar earlier in the game and added Roma's third at the death. Roma are now
hoping Salah recovers from a late knock in time for their far more formidable
challenge in midweek.For
