Liverpool 1 - 0 Brighton and Hove Albion | Mohamed Salah's 23rd-minute strike was enough to earn Liverpool a 1-0 win over a dogged Brighton and Hove Albion and give them an early top spot in the Premier League with three wins out of three. It was hardly vintage Liverpool, with Brighton fresh from their victory over Manchester United last week, well-organised at the back and frequently frustrating Jurgen Klopp's front three. The victory and the clean sheet propels The Reds to top of the table. (Image - Reuters)

New Castle 1 - 2 Chelsea | Chelsea left it late but managed an away win with a 2-1 score line against Newcastle thanks to 87th minute own goal by DeAndre Yedlin St James' Park on Sunday.  An uneventful first hour saw the Blues largely frustrated by Rafa Benitez's tactics in a spirited defensive performance from Newcastle, before Eden Hazard gave Chelsea the lead through a 76th-minute penalty. Joselu leveled for the Magapies in 83rd minute, but Yedlin's unfortunate deflection helped Chelsea to maintain Maurizio Sarri's 100 percent winning record in the Premier League.  (Image - Reuters)

Fulham 4-2 Burnley | Fulham’s Aleksandar Mitrovic scored two goals in just three minutes to help the newly promoted side a first win of the Premier League campaign on Sunday when they beat Burnley 4-2 at Craven Cottage.

Mitrovic, struck in the 36th and 38th minutes before James Tarkowski cut the arrears to 3-2 by halftime. Andre Schurrle scored late on to put Burnley's into the bottom three. (Image - Reuters)

Watford 2 - 1 Crystal Palace | Watford continued its unbeaten start in the Premier League season with a third successive win when they defeated visiting Crystal Palace 2-1 on Sunday. It is the first time they have begun with three wins out of three in the top tier of English football, keeping them with likes of Liverpool and Chelsea. Etienne Capoue was sent off for a nasty challenge on Wilfried Zaha, so Palace were aggrieved that he made the opening goal for Roberto Pereyra in the 53rd minute. Defender Jose Holebas was amongst goals as he doubled the lead with what he confessed was a cross before Zaha reduced the arrears 12 minutes from the end.(Image - Reuters)
