Liverpool won on Saturday with a clear difference from Arsenal: 3-1. Earlier in the day, Crystal Palace won thanks to Patrick van Aanholt at Manchester United and Frank Lampard booked his first win with Chelsea.
Liverpool-Arsenal was initially tied up at Anfield, but gradually it became clear that the team of basic players Virgil van Dijk and Georginio Wijnaldum was a size too large.
Just before half-time Joel Matip made it 1-0 with a header and in the second half Mohamed Salah claimed the lead. He shot a penalty in the cross and won a nice individual action. Just before time, Lucas Torreira did something back.
The result on Anfield means that after three rounds of play Liverpool is still the only club without losing points in the Premier League. Arsenal follows with six points and can still be passed on Sunday by Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur, among others.
Van Aanholt creates a scoop in Manchester
Van Aanholt's winning goal at United-Palace is special, as the nine-time Orange International is the first Premier League player to defeat United at Old Trafford in the last minute.
Palace had taken the lead after half an hour thanks to Jordan Ayew. Sloppy United went on the hunt for 1-1, especially after the break, and it seemed that twenty minutes before the end.
Marcus Rashford was awarded a penalty but the ball hit the post hard. The mistake was spicy, because on Monday Paul Pogba had visited a penalty kick at Wolverhampton Wanderers (1-1). He then claimed the ball, while Rashford is the regular taker.
The equalizer fell just before time, when 21-year-old Daniel James shot beautifully in the cross. United hoped for more, but the goal fell on the other side. Goalkeeper David de Gea had no answer in the 93rd minute on a shot by Van Aanholt.
United has a bad start to the season, as only four points were won in three games. Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team started with a convincing 4-0 win over Chelsea. Palace also has four points.

Abraham shoots Chelsea to win
In the attractive match between Norwich City and Chelsea, Tammy Abraham crowned himself as match winner in the 68th minute. The striker surprised Norwich goalkeeper Tim Krul with a shot from the edge of the penalty area.
On Carrow Road, Abraham had already made it 0-1 after three minutes, after which Todd Cantwell quickly equalized. Norwich also had an answer via Teemu Pukki to the beautiful 1-2 of former Vitesse player Mason Mount. That did not apply to Abraham's second hit.
With four points from three games, Chelsea is currently in ninth place. Norwich already booked its first win of the season last week by winning 3-1 against Newcastle United. The PhD student has collected three points after three matches.

Pröpper and Locadia lose with Brighton
Brighton & Hove Albion, just like United and Chelsea, is on four points after three rounds of play. With Davy Pröpper in the starting line-up and Jürgen Locadia as substitute, Saturday was 0-2 vs. Southampton lost by goals from Moussa Djenepo and Nathan Redmond.
Daryl Janmaat again had a gloomy afternoon with Watford. He saw from the bench that his team lost 1-3 to West Ham United, partly due to two hits from former FC Utrecht striker Sébastien Haller. Sheffield United-Leicester City ended in 1-2.
