Goals from Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino saw Liverpool claim a 2-1 win at Southampton three days after beating Chelsea in Turkey in an exhausting Super Cup clash.

Mane’s beautiful curling effort and Firmino’s well-placed strike ensured the three points for Jurgen Klopp’s men despite a late strike from former Red Danny Ings.

Elsewhere, it was a magical day for Teemu Pukki, who scored a brilliant hat-trick as Norwich dispatched Newcastle 3-1 at Carrow Road.

Jonjo Shelvey scored a consolation goal for the Magpies.

However, there was no luck for fellow newly-promoted side Aston Villa after they were beaten 2-1 at home to Bournemouth.

A penalty from Josh King and Harry Wilson’s goal gave the Cherries a 2-0 lead after twelve minutes.

Douglas Luiz pulled one back for the Villans but it was not enough to get them anything from the game.

VAR made the headlines at Brighton after Leandro Trossard’s celebrations were cut short during the Seagulls’ 1-1 draw against West Ham.

The winger thought he had given his side the lead in the first-half, only for it to be chalked off after a check.

The Hammers then took the lead through Javier Hernandez on 61 minutes but Trossard did get on the scoresheet with an equaliser moments later.

Meanwhile, Everton got the better of Watford with a 1-0 win at Goodison Park – Bernard getting the decisive goal.
