Wolverhampton Wanderers came from behind to beat Sunderland 2-1 in their English Premier League match clash at Molineux and underline the tough task ahead for the visitors' new manager Martin O'Neill.

The win lifted Wolves to 15th with 14 points from as many games, while Sunderland -- whose new boss O'Neill was watching from the stands after his appointment yesterday -- were left sitting one place and one point above the relegation zone.

Earlier in the day, Stoke ran out 1-nil winners at Everton.

Stoke climbed to eighth in the table, two places above Everton.

Manchester City crushed Norwich City 5-1 yesterday to maintain their five-point lead at the top over champions Manchester United who won 1-nil at Aston Villa.
