Manchester City beats Hull 2-0 in Premier League
LONDON (AP) - Manchester City avoided another slip against a Premier League newcomer, winning 2-0 at home against Hull on Saturday a week after its loss to Cardiff.
Alvaro Negredo scored on a header in the 64th minute and Yaya Toure curled in a free kick in the 90th minute for the 2012 champions.
"We must improve,'' City manager Manuel Pellegrini said. "We had too many difficulties in the first half.''
After starting the season with a 4-0 rout of Newcastle, City lost at Cardiff last weekend to drop points early in its bid to reclaim the title from Manchester United. United plays at Liverpool on Sunday when Arsenal hosts Tottenham.
Elsewhere, there were 1-0 wins for Newcastle over Fulham and Norwich against Southampton. Newcomer Crystal Palace earned its first points of the season by beating Sunderland 3-1.
Stoke made it two wins in three games by defeating West Ham 1-0. Everton was held to a 0-0 draw by Cardiff, the Merseyside team's third successive league draw under new manager Roberto Martinez.
MILAN (AP) - Juventus cruised to a 4-1 victory over 10-man Lazio in Serie A as the defending Italian champions inflicted another one-sided defeat on the Rome club.
Lazio was looking to avenge its 4-0 loss to Juventus in the Italian Super Cup two weeks ago, but two excellent finishes from Arturo Vidal sent Juventus on its way.
Miroslav Klose reduced the deficit with his first goal against Juventus, but Mirko Vucinic restored the home side's two-goal advantage shortly after halftime.
Lazio played nearly 30 minutes with 10 men after Hernanes was sent off for a second yellow card. Carlos Tevez, who earlier hit the crossbar, scored his third goal in three games.
Napoli, last year's runner-up, beat Chievo Verona 4-2. Gonzalo Higuain scored his first Serie A goal to help his team maintain its perfect start under new coach Rafa Benitez. Higuain started despite having had eight stitches to his face after injuring himself by diving off a boat onto a rock on Monday.
BARCELONA, Spain (AP) - Celta Vigo played to a 1-1 draw at home against Granada in the Spanish League while Valladolid beat Getafe 1-0 for its first points of the season.
Former Roma coach Luis Enrique's new team went ahead in the 29th minute when Rafina Alcantara fired in a cross that was deflected and caught Granada goalkeeper Roberto Fernandez out of position. Granada's Francisco "Piti'' Medina volleyed home the tying goal in the 62nd minute.
Celta has two draws and a win through three rounds.
"When a team creates so many scoring chances that are the fruit of good play it's a reason to be happy,'' Enrique said. "I'm not worried about our lack of scoring touch.''
Valladolid's lone goal came from Marc Valiente, who scored after Omar Ramos' corner kick was sent into the middle of the penalty area by Carlos Pena in the 47th minute.
Barcelona visits Valencia while Real Madrid hosts Athletic Bilbao on Sunday. Real Sociedad hosts Atletico Madrid, Malaga plays at Sevilla and Espanyol faces Real Betis.
PARIS (AP) - Paris Saint-Germain defeated newly promoted Guingamp 2-0 in the French league behind the strong play of 18-year-old homegrown player Adrien Rabiot.
PSG struck twice in injury time as Rabiot came off the bench to score his first goal for the club. Zlatan Ibrahimovic ended his scoring drought moments later with his first goal of the season.
"It was a laborious first half, we were asleep,'' PSG coach Laurent Blanc said.
It was PSG's second straight win after last weekend's 2-1 win at Nantes, another promoted club.
The win, for now, moved PSG into second place with eight points. Leader Marseille, which has won all three games, can restore its four-point lead over PSG if it beats visiting Monaco on Sunday night.
Seventh-place Lyon's losing streak increased to four matches after a 2-1 loss at Evian.
