Wayne Rooney hits victor as Everton start with a win
Mark Hughes has warned his Stoke side not to get dazzled in the spotlight of the Rooney show. They finished in 13th last season .
Wilfried Zaha has been forced to wear a leg brace after the Crystal Palace winger was perpetually fouled in their opening-day defeat by Huddersfield Town.
It was no surprise when Huddersfield did take the lead in the 23rd minute with a set-piece routine that had the Eagles' defence and sixes and sevens. "We were close to making it 2-1 and if we did, I had a feeling we would get a point".

"Tom Ince missed a chance but we were clinical and had the right fight, attitude and togetherness. Conceding two goals like that before half-time affects the crowd and the players which makes it very hard".
