Last Updated: 16/07/17 7:47am
Frank de Boer's new Crystal Palace side kicked off their pre-season schedule with a 3-1 win at Maidstone United on a busy Saturday of warm-up games.
De Boer took his place in the dugout for the first time as Palace boss and watched Jordon Mutch score a first-half double for a young Eagles team.
Joe Piggott's fine free-kick for the hosts meant the Premier League side had headed in at the break with a slender advantage but with 20 minutes remaining, substitute Jacob Berkeley made the scoreline more comfortable.
Another new Premier League boss, Mauricio Pellegrino, watched his Southampton side held 0-0 by St Gallen in Austria.
Virgil van Dijk was not yet deemed ready as he continues his comeback from an ankle injury but though Pellegrino freshened up his XI at half-time, forwards Manolo Gabbiadini and Shane Long among those introduced, Saints failed to find a breakthrough.
Saido Berahino finally scored his first Stoke goal as the Potters were beaten 4-2 by Ligue 1 champions Monaco in Switzerland.
The striker opened the scoring in the tenth minute, but Stoke were pegged back as Fabinho and Allan Saint Maximum put the French side 2-1 ahead but Mame Biram Diouf levelled matters before the break.
Radamel Falcao and Kylian Mbappe were introduced by Monaco for the second half, with the former netting the third and 18-year-old Mbappe having a hand in Kevin N'Doram fourth goal.
Bournemouth picked up a 2-1 victory over Portuguese side Estoril in Marbella, Spain with Max Gradel and Jordan Ibe netting for the Cherries while Eduardo scored the reply for their opponents.
Marco Silva swapped relegated Hull for Watford this summer but his top-flight Hornets went down 3-2 at League One side AFC Wimbledon.
New signing Nathaniel Chalobah watched from the stands at Kingsmeadow as Silva's side came from 2-0 down to level through Ben Watson and Steven Berghuis, only for Alfie Egan to score an 87-minute winner for the League One side.
Premier League champions Chelsea were also in friendly action on Saturday, welcoming Fulham to Cobham, with plenty of first-team players on the pitch as the Blues ran out as 8-2 winners.
Willian netted a first-half hat-trick with a double from Michy Batshuayi in the opening 45 minutes, while a Cesar Azpilicueta own goal was the only reply for Fulham.
But the defender netted in the right net during the second half, as did Kenedy and Loic Remy with Stefan Johansen netting the second Fulham goal of the game.
Swansea started their pre-season tour of America with a 2-2 draw against MLS side Philadelphia at the Talen Energy Stadium.
CJ Sapong gave Philadelphia the lead in the sixth minute after Marcus Epps went down under a challenge from Leroy Fer.
The Swans drew level in the 28th minute when Kyle Bartley fired home from close range and the visitors were ahead in just before the break when Jordan Ayew struck from 10 yards out.
However, Philadelphia secured a draw through Jay Simpson when the former Arsenal striker fired past Kristoffer Nordfeldt.
Elsewhere, former Chelsea skipper John Terry captained Aston Villa but suffered defeat on his first outing for his new side as Steve Bruce's men lost 2-1 at Shrewsbury.
Henri Lansbury scored a late penalty but Zak Jules and Arthur Gnahoua's goals gave the third-tier side victory.
Another Championship side, Sunderland, also suffered a pre-season defeat, going down 3-0 at St Johnstone.
New Black Cats signing James Vaughan missed a penalty on his first outing, as goals from Steven MacLean, David Wotherspoon (2) gave the Scottish Premiership side a convincing win.
QPR and Peterborough played four 30-minute quarters at the ABAX Stadium, where Jamie Mackie's opener separated the sides until Junior Morais' double (63, 72) changed the lead.
But youngsters Jack Robinson (85) and Ebere Eze (87) swung the match back in QPR's favour and Charlie Owens (105) ensured Ian Holloway's visitors won the marathon match 4-2.
Harry Redknapp's Birmingham ended their tour of Austria with a 2-0 victory over Israeli side Hapeol Ironi Kiryat Shmona with a different Blues team fielded in each half.
Jacques Maghoma put the Sky Bet Championship side ahead in the 18th minute before Kerim Frei doubled Birmingham's lead on the 60-minute mark.
The Blues ended with ten men though as Clayton Donaldson was shown a red card after a confrontation on the touchline, which ended in his dismissal just before the full-time whistle.
