What happened in the Premier league?


Defending champions Manchester City suffered a shock defeat at Norwich City as Liverpool maintained their 100% start to the Premier League with victory over Newcastle to move five points clear at the top of the table.

Norwich took an early lead through Kenny McLean before Todd Cantwell doubled their advantage. Sergio Aguero pulled one back before the interval but Teemu Pukki sealed victory with his sixth top-flight goal, before Rodri hit a late consolation as the Canaries held on to win 3-2.

Two first-half goals from Sadio Mane in the early kick-off saw league leaders Liverpool overturn Jetro Willems’ early opener and see off Newcastle 3-1 at Anfield.

Roberto Firmino was a first-half injury replacement for Divock Origi, and the Brazilian was in sublime form, setting up Mohamed Salah’s strike in the second half with a superb flick.

Tottenham and Chelsea both secured big wins, while Manchester United returned to winning ways to end Leicester’s unbeaten start to the new campaign.

Spurs scored all their goals in the first half of their 4-0 home win over Crystal Palace, with Son Heung-min grabbing two either side of a Patrick van Aanholt own goal to put the north London side three up inside 23 minutes.
