Liverpool maintained the only perfect record in the English Premier League with a 3-1 clinical victory over the Arsenal.

Joel Matip took Liverpool ahead in the first half at Anfield and Mohamed Salah struck twice after the break on Saturday to give the Reds the maximum of nine points at the top of the table and give their first defeat to Arsenal.

"After three games he doesn't say much," Matip told Sky Sports.

"We are happy to have won the first three games and now we do not see Burnley's time (next week)."

Patrick van Aanholt's goal on the counterattack gave Crystal Palace their first EPL victory over Manchester United 2-1, while Frank Lampard's first win as Chelsea manager was a 3-2 success in Norwich City.

Leicester City finished third with a 2-1 win at Sheffield United, Southampton won 2-0 at Brighton & Hove Albion in 10 and West Ham United won 3-1 at Watford in other games of the day.

The Arsenal seemed ready to reach the first half without goals just to get Matip back home in the 41st minute corner.

Salah then resolved things by striking twice before the break, the first by a penalty and the second by a long distance after passing David Luiz.

Lucas Torreira marked a late consolation for the Arsenal, which lost its last seven visits to Anfield.

Daniel James seemed to have earned a point from Manchester United with a last minute goal to clear Jordan Ayew's opener.

Ma van Aanholt stunned the faithful of the Old Trafford by beating David de Gea on the nearby pole to get a famous result for Palace.

"C & # 39; is a first time for everything", said the Dutch to the BBC.

"I think we played really well. I think we deserved the three points."

Chelsea won for the first time under Lampard thanks to the brace of Tammy Abraham.

Abraham and Mason Mount gave Chelsea the lead twice just to have Todd Cantwell and Teemu Pukki, with his fifth goal of the season, draw in the first 30 minutes.

Abraham hit the winner at the end of 69 minutes before Ben Godfrey of Norwich turned against the late bar.

"I am very happy with the result because we are Chelsea, we want to win games," said Lampard.

"We had a difficult start and I was happy with many performances, but you can't scream too loud if you don't win the games.

"I saw great confidence in the players in the way they played today."

Goals from Jamie Vardy and Harvey Barnes earned Leicester a first win at Sheffield United, while new autograph Sebastian Haller struck twice in the second half to get West Ham's first win in the lower Watford club.

Moussa Djenepo and Nathan Redmond scored while Southampton won their first half against Socceroos goalkeeper Mathew Ryan, Brighton, who saw Florin Andone seeing red in the first half before losing 2-0.

On Sunday, the Manchester City champions visit Bournemouth, the host of Tottenham Newcastle and Burnley are in Wolverhampton Wanderers.
