Chelsea began its English Premier League title defense with a red card for goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois and a 2-2 draw at home to Swansea on a frustrating opening Saturday at Stamford Bridge.Manchester United needed an own goal to beat Tottenham 1-0 in the day's early kickoff, while Claudio Ranieri's Leicester beat Sunderland 4-2, and Crystal Palace earned a controversial 3-1 win at Norwich.However, everything changed within 10 minutes of the restart, when Courtois felled Gomis as the France striker burst into the area on the break.Gomis easily converted the penalty in the 55th, and had the ball in the back of the Blues' net in the 68th, but the strike was ruled out for offside.At Old Trafford, Spurs defender Kyle Walker handed all three points to United by steering the ball into his own net in the 22nd minute as he tried to tackle United captain Wayne Rooney.The place to go for goals was Leicester, where former Chelsea coach Ranieri made an ideal start to his return to the league after an 11-year absence.
