Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino scored as Liverpool continued their 100 per cent start to the Premier League season by beating Southampton 2-1.

After Saints missed a couple of chances, the Reds went in front on the stroke of half-time when Mane curled a superb effort into the top corner against his former club.

Firmino added a second 19 minutes from time before ex-Liverpool striker Danny Ings profited from a mistake by Adrian, who was fit enough to start despite an ankle issue, to set up a nervy finish.

Hammered 4-1 at Liverpool in their first outing last week, the Canaries hit back in style courtesy of their talisman's treble.

Jonjo Shelvey netted a late consolation, leaving Steve Bruce looking for his first point as Newcastle boss.

Aston Villa suffered disappointment, losing 2-1 to Bournemouth at Villa Park.

The Cherries were 2-0 up after 12 minutes as Josh King scored from the penalty spot after Callum Wilson was brought down by Tom Heaton and Harry Wilson marked his debut with a deflected strike.

Douglas Luiz gave Villa hope in the 71st minute but the visitors held on.

Leandro Trossard's second-half strike secured Brighton a 1-1 draw against West Ham.

The Belgian thought he had scored the opener in the 27th minute only for VAR to rule it out for offside.

Javier Hernandez's clinical finish then gave the Hammers a 1-0 lead on the hour mark, but Trossard equalised shortly after.

Bernard's 10th-minute goal gave Everton a 1-0 win over Watford, who suffered a second consecutive defeat, at Goodison Park.
