Premier League wrap: Mooy makes Brighton debut, Pukki nets Norwich hat-trick


Socceroos star Aaron Mooy made his Brighton and Hove Albion debut, coming on as a late substitute as fellow Australian Mat Ryan helped their side to a 1-1 draw at home to West Ham United.

Mooy made the move from Huddersfield last week and after missing their Premier League opener, Brighton manager Graham Potter brought the Socceroos midfielder on in the 85th minute on Sunday (AEST).

Leandro Trossard had a goal ruled out for offside by VAR, but he later opened his account for the Seagulls with a 65th-minute equaliser after West Ham had taken the lead four minutes earlier through Javier Hernandez.

The result leaves the Aussie duo's side unbeaten after two Premier League outings this season, after a 3-0 win away to Watford last Sunday (AEST).



Finland forward Teemu Pukki, who netted in Norwich City's loss at Liverpool, scored all three goals as the Canaries downed Newcastle United 3-1 at home to get up and running on their return to the Premier League.


Elsewhere, Bournemouth were 2-0 up inside 12 minutes at Aston Villa, Josh King scoring the Premier League's earliest penalty since 2015.

Harry Wilson later struck via a deflection for his maiden Cherries strike, with Douglas Luiz replying for Dean Smith's men.


Everton followed last week's 0-0 draw at Crystal Palace with another clean sheet as Bernard's early goal was enough to secure all three points at home to Watford, who have lost both of their games in 2019-20.



It was deja vu for Manchester City and Pep Guardiola at Etihad Stadium as VAR proved the main subject of debate after an engrossing 2-2 draw with Tottenham Hotspur.

Kevin De Bruyne set up Raheem Sterling and Sergio Aguero either side of Erik Lamela's strike in a one-sided first half in which Spurs scored from their only shot.


Mauricio Pochettino's side claimed a dramatic draw thanks to Lucas Moura's header 19 seconds after his introduction off the bench, before Gabriel Jesus had a stoppage-time winner chalked off as replays showed the ball hit Aymeric Laporte on the arm moments earlier.

"They have to fix it," said Guardiola after VAR cost his side against Spurs for the second time this year after April's UEFA Champions League quarter-final at City's home ground, when Sterling's injury-time goal was disallowed.


Having eased to a home win over Norwich City to kick the Premier League season off, Liverpool followed their midweek UEFA Super Cup triumph over Chelsea by downing Southampton 2-1.

Mane hit both goals for Liverpool in Istanbul and the Senegal star followed that brace with his first league goal of the campaign, Firmino then seemingly wrapping up the Reds' win with an unerring finish.


But there was no first clean sheet in four competitive fixtures this season for Jurgen Klopp's men, who are at home to Arsenal next weekend, as Super Cup shoot-out hero Adrian's awful clearance bounced in off Ings with seven minutes left.

And Southampton should have snatched a late point when Yan Valery's low right-wing cross found Ings in the box, with the former Reds striker unable to punish his old club as he failed to get a clean contact on the ball.


Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang both scored as Arsenal took maximum points again after last week's victory at Newcastle United by winning 2-1 at home to Burnley on Saturday night (AEST).

Lacazette fired through Nick Pope's legs to open the scoring in the early kick-off at the Emirates Stadium but Ashley Barnes hit his third Premier League goal of the season to level before the break.


Aubameyang won it, though, firing past Pope after Ceballos robbed Johann Gudmundsson in midfield - the Gabon striker now has seven goals in four league games against the Clarets.
