CHELSEA 0-2 LIVERPOOL
Liverpool showed Chelsea still have far to go to challenge the champions for the Premier League title as Sadio Mane took advantage of a first-half red card shown to Andreas Christensen to score both goals in a 2-0 win at Stamford Bridge.
Mane provoked the Dane’s dismissal and then headed the Reds into the lead before pouncing on another terrible error from the Blues’ goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga.
Commentator Andy Townsend had nothing to offer but “bloody hell” when he reflected on the $127 million flop’s all-time howler.
At the other end, Alisson Becker also proved the value of a good goalkeeper as he saved Jorginho’s penalty 15 minutes from time to deny the Blues a lifeline.
Victory takes Liverpool level on points with Everton, Arsenal and Crystal Palace at the top of the table as the only sides with maximum points from their opening two games.

SOUTHAMPTON 2-5 TOTTENHAM
Son Heung-min destroyed Southampton with a four-goal blitz as Tottenham earned their first Premier League win of the season with a 5-2 victory at St Mary’s on Sunday.
Just 24 hours after Tottenham signed Gareth Bale, South Korea forward Son delivered a virtuoso display that showed Jose Mourinho’s side already have plenty of firepower.
Bale has returned to Tottenham on a season-long loan from Real Madrid seven years after he left the north London club for a then world record £85 million ($109 million) fee.
But the Wales forward will not be available until mid-October as he recovers from a knee injury, so Mourinho needs Son and Harry Kane to carry the attack until then.
No one would question the quality of that pair and they underlined the point with superb performances that ripped Southampton to pieces.
Danny Ings put Southampton ahead in the first half, but Son equalised before the break and scored three more in the second half.
Kane, who hit the back of the net twice in the first half only to have them ruled out for offside, capped a swaggering display with his second goal of the season.
LEICESTER CITY 4-2 BURNLEY
Leicester City moved to the top of the Premier League table after two games with a thrilling 4-2 win over Burnley.
Chris Wood put the visitors ahead early on before Harvey Barnes equalised just 10 minutes later.
Erik Pieters then accidentally turned Timothy Castagne’s cross into his own net before James Justin doubled the advantage.
But Burnley came back again with Jimmy Dunne scoring on his debut, only for Dennis Praet to score a rocket in the closing stages to ensure the win.
NEWCASTLE UNITED 0-3 BRIGHTON
Neal Maupay’s quick-fire double inspired Brighton’s 3-0 win against Newcastle as the Seagulls claimed their first Premier League victory of the season on Sunday.
Graham Potter’s side raced into a two-goal lead after just seven minutes at St James’ Park thanks to the brace from French striker Maupay.
Aaron Connolly grabbed Brighton’s third as they got off the mark following last Monday’s home defeat against Chelsea.
The only frustration for Brighton was an 89th minute red card for Yves Bissouma after his raised boot caught Jamal Lewis in the face.
