Liverpool v Southampton

Liverpool players celebrate a Daniel Sturridge goal

Early Premier League pacesetters Liverpool suffered their first defeat of the season as a Dejan Lovren goal gave Southampton victory at Anfield.

Lovren had escaped conceding a penalty for a challenge on Daniel Sturridge in the first half.

The Croat then held off Daniel Agger to steer in a header from Adam Lallana's corner to put Saints ahead.

Liverpool struggled for fluency and chances as the visitors easily held on for a second league win of the season.
