FILE: Salah scores 100th Premier League goal

Ivan Toney inspired Brentford to their first away win in the top flight for 74 years with a 2-0 victory at Wolves.

Toney almost moved to Molineux from Northampton as a teenager in 2014, the move collapsing when he failed a medical, so it was perhaps inevitable he would star as Wolves slumped to a fourth straight home Premier League defeat.

The 25-year-old had a goal, an assist and two disallowed in the first half alone as a clinical Brentford side got their first top-flight win since beating Leeds 2-1 in 1947, with Bryan Mbeumo also on target.

A second-half red card for Shandon Baptiste threatened to spoil Brentford’s afternoon, but, even though Wolves finished on top, they failed to score for a fourth league match out of five this season. Relive all the action below:

The Premier League results

Liverpool’s 3-0 victory over Crystal Palace was fairly predictable. Less so the game at the Etihad. Manchester City were held to a 0-0 draw by Southampton but that point is enough to take them up to second in the table.

Elsewhere Arsenal squeezed past Burnley 1-0 and Watford demolished Norwich 3-1 in a bottom of the table clash.

GOAL! Liverpool 3 - 0 Crystal Palace (Keita, 89’)⚽️

89 mins: What a goal! Mo Salah swings a corner into the middle of the box that Guaita comes out to punch away. He gets the ball as far as the edge of the box where it drops to Naby Keita. He hits the ball on the volley and smokes it into the opposite corner of the goal leaving Guaita no time to even try and stop it. Liverpool are ending this one in style!

Liverpool 2 - 0 Crystal Palace

87 mins: Jordan Henderson makes way to another standing ovation from the Liverpool fans as he’s replaced with Divock Origi for the final few minutes. Liverpool seem fairly comfortable. They’ll see this out from here.

Liverpool 2 - 0 Crystal Palace

84 mins: Gallagher is brought down by Milner and the free kick is passed out to Zaha on the left. He flicks a cross into the box but Fabinho is there to head it clear.

GOAL! Norwich 1 - 3 Watford (Sarr, 80’)⚽️

Watford are out of sight now! Ismaila Sarr gets on the end of a parried save to tap the ball into the back of the net for his second goal of the game at Carrow Road. It’s a big three points for the visitors even this early in the season.

Liverpool 2 - 0 Crystal Palace

81 mins: Inside the last 10 minutes and Palace aren’t giving it up. Joel Ward raises his foot a little too high trying to win a bouncing ball off Tsimikas and he collides with the Liverpool defender earning himself a yellow card.
