Robbie Keane made his Tottenham Hotspur return but it was fellow striker Roman Pavlyuchenko who shone in a 4-0 friendly win at Bournemouth.
Keane, who finished last season on loan at Celtic, played the first 45 minutes but could not get on the scoresheet, with strike partner Jonathan Obika taking advantage of a defensive error to open the scoring after 36 minutes before two second-half goals in a little over a minute made life more comfortable for the Premier League side.
Roman Pavlyuchenko scored in the 61st minute after good work from Andros Townsend, then the same pair combined a minute later to set up Danny Rose for the third.
Spurs hit the woodwork twice through Adel Taarabt and Townsend, before Pavlyuchenko grabbed his second 16 minutes from time after latching onto a long ball from Younes Kaboul. The only disappointment for Spurs was the sight of David Bentley limping off in the first half.
Victor Anichebe was on target as Everton beat Sydney FC 1-0 in their first pre-season game in Australia.
The striker scored a minute into the second half, receiving a pass from Leighton Baines and turning well before shooting into the roof of the net.
Australia international Tim Cahill received a tremendous reception from the 40,000 strong crowd inside the ANZ Stadium when he came on at half-time.
There were no such goalscoring exploits by Blackburn, who played out a goalless draw against Sturm Graz in Austria.
On a hot day at the UPC Arena, there were few chances for either side, but it was the Austrians who had the better of the play, especially in the first half.
Relegated Burnley claimed a rare away win with a 3-0 victory at Lancashire rivals Bury. New signing Ross Wallace grabbed the first goal, with Steven Thompson and Chris Eagles also on the scoresheet.
Noel Hunt scored the only goal as Reading won 1-0 at Farnborough, Will Buckley grabbed a hat-trick as Watford won 5-0 at Boreham Wood and Millwall drew 1-1 at Crawley Town, while fellow Championship newcomers Norwich won 3-0 at Dereham Town.
