LONDON -- Stoke came from behind to beat Crystal Palace 2-1 while newly-promoted Hull claimed its first win of the season with a 1-0 win over Norwich. Everton was held 0-0 by West Bromwich Albion, Newcastle-West Ham also finished scoreless and Southampton drew 1-1 with Sunderland.

Manchester United hosts Chelsea on Monday in a much-anticipated clash between the clubs' new managers David Moyes and Jose Mourinho.

Everton's new manager Roberto Martinez is still looking for his first victory with the club following the goalless draw with West Brom and will be rueing his team's missed chances after Marouane Fellaini hit the post late and Seamus Coleman also struck the woodwork.

West Brom goalkeeper Ben Foster also made decisive saves to deny Steven Pienaar, Kevin Mirallas, Coleman, Ross Barkley and Fellaini at Goodison Park.

Everton now has two draws from its opening two games, while West Brom earned its first point despite playing without striker Nicolas Anelka, who is on indefinite compassionate leave after the death of one of his representatives.

Stoke scored twice in four second-half minutes to fight back from a goal down against Palace, leaving the promoted visitors without a point after two games back in the Premier League.

Charlie Adam equalized in the 58th minute after former Arsenal striker Marouane Chamakh, who is trying to revive his career at Palace, scored his first league goal since September 2011. Ryan Shawcross grabbed the winner to give manager Mark Hughes his first win since taking charge over the summer.

At St. James' Park, West Ham kept its unbeaten record while Newcastle earned its first point of the season in an uneventful game. Sunderland is still looking for its first win after Jose Fonte's header earned a point for Southampton in the 88th minute. An early goal from Emanuele Giaccherini had put Paolo Di Canio's men ahead.
