Sadio Mane’s third and fourth Premier League goals of the season put Liverpool in control

Premier League leaders Liverpool fought back from conceding an early goal to beat Newcastle United to maintain their 100% start to the season.

Newcastle took a shock lead after seven minutes when wing-back Jetro Willems curled a fine shot past Reds’ goalkeeper Adrian.

But Liverpool were ahead by half-time thanks to two goals from Sadio Mane, and were rarely troubled in the second-half other than a poor miss from close range by Newcastle’s Emil Krafth.

Mohamed Salah extended the lead after the break with a cool finish following a brilliant assist by substitute Roberto Firmino.
