David Hoilett scored less than two minutes into the match, but an own goal cost winless QPR against 10-man Everton as the clubs tied 1-1 at Loftus Road on Sunday in the English Premier League.

QPR got off to a dream start as it looked to end its early-season skid, but an own goal from goalkeeper Julio Cesar in the 33rd minute tied the match and the hosts failed to take advantage sending off of Steven Pienaar on the hour.

Winless in eight matches this season with five losses and three draws, QPR did snap a three-game losing streak. The London side is still stuck at the foot of the table with just three points, behind Reading on goal differential.

Everton extended its unbeaten streak to five matches as it was happy to escape with a point after playing the last half-hour down a man. Everton has just one defeat in eight matches, and is seven points off the summit in fourth place.

Sunderland 1, Newcastle 1

Sunderland, England - Yohan Cabaye scored under three minutes into the game as Newcastle managed a 1-1 draw against Sunderland, despite a first-half red card and a late own goal Sunday at the Stadium of Light in the English Premiership.

Cabaye put Newcastle in position for its first road win this season with the quick strike, but Cheick Tiote was sent off in the 25th minute and Demba Ba - who is tied for the league lead with six goals - turned the ball into his own net five minutes from time.

Newcastle still escaped with its third road draw in four matches and sits 11th in the table on 10 points. Sunderland avoided its first home loss, and secured its fifth draw in seven matches to sit 14th on eight points.
