Fulham began life post Roy Hodgson by handing out a thrashing while there were also wins for Everton, Bolton, West Ham and Sunderland
Fulham opened their pre-season campaign with a 5-0 romp at League 1 neighbours Brentford.
Chris Baird opened the scoring early-on, side-footing home after being picked out by American striker Eddie Johnson.
The second goal came from down the right flank as well, but this time it was Bjorn Helge Riise who created the chance and David Elm was the grateful recipient.
Five minutes later Riise and Elm combined again with this time the latter releasing Damien Duff who drove into the area and fired home.
Johnson got his name on the score sheet after the break, rounding the keeper and slotting home after being sent clear by Zoltan Gera.
Simon Davies completed the scoring 20 minutes from time with Gera again the provider, Johnson dummied his low cross and Davies was on hand to make it 5-0.
Everton handed debuts to Jermaine Beckford and Joao Silva as they continued their tour of Australia with a 2-0 win over Melbourne Heart.
Jack Rodwell opened the scoring with a header from Seamus Coleman's cross before Louis Saha made amends for an earlier missed penalty by adding the second.
Beckford and Silva entered the fray in the second half and the former Leeds man almost scored with his first touch, but fired wide from close-range.
Bolton handed debuts to Martin Petrov and Robbie Elliott in a comfortable 3-0 win over Charlotte Eagles.
Petrov was in the thick of the action straight away and crossed for Gary Cahill to head in the opener early-on.
Johan Elmander added the second with a neat finish, after being found by Mark Davies, early in the second half and then Petrov marked his debut with a sublime third to seal the win.
West Ham gave a start to new midfielder Thomas Hitzlsperger, in a 2-1 win at Peterborough, and he instantly got into the action, creating the opening goal for Carlton Cole.
The home side levelled just after the break but Anthony Edgar, cousin of Jermain Defoe, scored the winner with 25 minutes left.
Finally, Youngster Martin Waghorn scored a brace for Sunderland as they beat a Munster XI 2-1, but he later went off with a knee injury sustained when sliding in trying to score his hat-trick.
