Morocco striker Marouane Chamakh marked his debut for newly-promoted EPL side Crystal Palace by scoring the opening goal at Stoke City. It was the former Arsenal player's first EPL goal since 2011 [GETTY]

Ivory Coast centre-back Kolo Toure played a key role as Liverpool secured their second consecutive clean sheet in a 1-0 win at Aston Villa [GETTY]

In France's Ligue 1, Tunisia centre-half Aymen Abdennour put in an outstanding performance as Toulouse held big-spenders Monaco to a goalless draw. Abdennour did a nifty job marking Monaco’s striker Radamel Falcao out of the game [AFP]

Ivory Coast left-back Siaka Tiene is seeking to relaunch his career with 2012 title-winners Montpellier, after a less than successful season with Paris Saint-Germain last year. He has started the season well by scoring in stoppage time to seal a 2-1 win against Sochaux [AFP]

In Germany's Bundesliga, Senegal striker Mame Diouf notched up his first goal of the season, heading the winner in Hanover’s 2-1 victory at home to Schalke 04 [EPA]

And Cameroon striker Eric Choupo-Moting scored his first Bundesliga goal for 17 months, firing home in Mainz's 2-0 win over VfL Wolfsburg to keep them fourth in the league [AFP]

In the opening rounds of Italy’s Serie A this weekend, Ghana midfielder Kwadwo Asamoah put in a solid performance for Juventus, who eventually won 1-0 against Sampdoria [GETTY]
In Russia, Ivory Coast’s Seydou Doumbia and Nigeria’s Ahmed Musa, above, both scored as CSKA Moscow came from behind to win 2-1 at Tomsk [GETTY]
And finally, in Spain’s Primera Division, Malaga’s Fabrice came within inches of scoring against champions Barcelona. The 17-year-old Cameroonian looks set to impress this season [EPA]
