Liverpool also remains without a loss of points after three games in the Premier League. Last year’s champion won 3-1 against Arsenal, which had won the first two games of the season.
Injured Tete loses again to Fulham
Liverpool, like Leicester City and Everton, are on nine points after three games. Based on goal difference, Leicester, which stunted 2-5 at Manchester City on Sunday, is the leader.
Arsenal took the lead at Anfield when Alexandre Lacazette punished an error by Andrew Robertson, but Liverpool repaired the damage before half time. Sadio Mané benefited from half-way intervention by goalkeeper Bernd Leno and Robertson made up for his mistake by tapping on an assist from Trent Alexander-Arnold.
In the second half Arsenal had chances to equalize, but with Virgil van Dijk and Georginio Wijnaldum in the starting line-up, Liverpool held out. Just before time, debutant Diogo Jota, who came over from Wolverhampton Wanderers, made the decision.

Kenny Tete had a bad evening with Fulham. The defender retired at the end of the first half with a calf injury and to make matters worse, saw his team at home with 0-3 losses to Aston Villa.
The moment the former Ajax player left the field, Fulham was already 0-2 behind, by hits from Jack Grealish and Conor Hourihane. Shortly after the break, Tyrone Mings put the final score on the board.
Fulham has had a dramatic start to the season. The London club is scoreless at the bottom after three games, with three goals for and ten against. Aston Villa is still without losing points after two matches.
