    Rightio, time to pulls the curtains shut on this live text.

    But Manchester United and Swansea are on their way out at the Liberty Stadium.

  2. Manager reaction

    Southampton 3-0 Norwich

    Ronald Koeman is asked about Dusan Tadic's reaction to the foul which resulted in Steven Whittaker's second yellow card.

    "I will talk to him about fair play," says the Dutchman.

  3. Player reaction

    Dusan Tadic

    Southampton's Dusan Tadic: "The defeat in midweek against Midtjylland was maybe a good wake-up call for us and we showed a great reaction today we played attacking football. 

    Asked about his card-waving reaction to the foul which prompted Steven Whittaker's sending off: "I think it was a really obvious yellow card because I was going in on goal. I think sometimes you need to help the referee, I think we help him with reaction."

    To be fair to Tadic, I don't think he quite understood the controversy around his reaction.

    BBC Radio 5 live at St Mary's

    "As soon as Norwich went down to 10 men it was game over. Ronald Koeman was nice and positive, he put two up front and went for the jugular. You just wonder if Norwich lack a little bit of Premier League quality."

  5. Manager reaction

    Southampton 3-0 Norwich

    Alex Neil

    Norwich City manager Alex Neil: "The manner in which we relinquished the record was disappointing. That wasn't like us. We didn't start well, even 11 v 11 we were poor, our use of the ball was poor. I think Whittaker's first yellow was a bit soft, he was just trying to get back in position, but they were silly decisions and they cost us. We didn't deserve anything from the game and we need to be better for the next match."

  6. Manager reaction

    Southampton's Ronald Koeman

    "It was a very positive result. 

    "Last Thursday was a big disappointment and it's always hard to start well, but we played very well at the beginning. 

    "The goal before half time broke the game open, and I'm very happy about how we played in the second half - there was lots of pressing and we created some great chances. 

    "Mane is the type of player who makes a difference, he's an important player for us and one we won't sell. Victor Wanyama is a key player and for him the answer is the same as for Sadio. They will stay at Southampton, I'm 100% sure about that. 

    "We need another centre-back and we're working hard to bring in a new player in that position."

    Saints have been heavily linked with Celtic's Virgil van Dijk.

  7. Manager reaction

    Southampton 3-0 Norwich

    Ronald Koeman has come out swinging at those deadline day vultures who are looking to pick off some of the juiciest parts of from the Saints squad.

    "The same answer for Victor and Sadio - we do not sell. They will stay at Southampton, I am 100% sure," he said.

    "They need to respect their contracts and show the commitment that Sadio is showing."

    Full quotes to come.

  8. Player reaction

    Southampton 3-0 Norwich

    Southampton striker Graziano Pelle: "Sadio had a great game as he does most of the time. I am really proud of the support that we have had from our fans despite the results so far this season."  

  9. Player reaction

    Southampton 3-0 Norwich

    Southampton captain Jose Fonte speaking to Sky Sports:  "It is always important to get the first win. We have not had the start we wanted but we are happy to get back to winnning ways with a good performance. 

    "We are seen as a good team and we need to win. That is the mentality we have. We have a break now and we can approach the next game with more confidence. It is a great three points for us."

  10. Man of the match

    Sadio Mane (Southampton)

    Sadio Mane

    Sadio Mane has been awarded the man of the match gong, but is not offered up by the Southampton press team to receive it in person in front of the cameras.

    The Senegal international had five key passes today, two of which were direct assists for goals, and 40 passes in total in the opposition half. He topped the Southampton stats in all those categories.

  11. Post update

    Steve Claridge

    BBC Radio 5 live at St Mary's

    "Southampton are the first team I've seen in a long time this season play two proper wingers - Mane on one side and Tadic on the other - and they've got their just desserts."

  12. FULL-TIME

    Southampton 3-0 Norwich

  13. CLOSE!

    Southampton 3-0 Norwich

    Norwich's best chance comes far, far too late.

    Bradley Johnson's meaty shot is palmed back into the danger area by Maarten Steklenburg, but Gary Hooper punts the follow-up wide from 12 yards with the goalkeeper out of position.

  14. Post update

    Southampton 3-0 Norwich

    Juanmi has looked bright since he has come on and he almost gets Jay Rodriguez in as he feints to shot and instead dinks the ball towards his Southampton team-mate. Just overcooked.

    Cameron Jerome has had just 22 touches - the fewest of any Norwich player on the pitch still.

    It's been a long day for little reward and he is given the last few minutes off with Gary Hooper on in his place.

  17. Post update

    Southampton 3-0 Norwich

    Norwich with a late corner in front of their own fans, who applaud heartily as Robbie Brady comes over to take it.

    They also ooh and ahh generously as he sends an ambitiously curling looping effort over the top.

    Southampton 3-0 Norwich

    Norwich have not had a shot on target in the match. Alex Tettey has only their third attempt and it is a shocker. Leaning back, the midfielder sends it well over the top and towards the back of the stand behind Maarten Stekelenburg's goal.

  20. Post update

    Jonny Howson brings down Sadio Mane, 30 yard from goal.

    That is Mane's final contribution. He is brought off for Juanmi.

    Mane departs without waving to all four stands or excessive applause to the home fans. It didn't look like a final farewell.

    We'll find out on Tuesday. 

  22. Post update

    Dusan Tadic's second goal came from another impressive Southampton passing move, which included 12 passes and a good save from John Ruddy to initially deny Graziano Pelle.

    Robbie Brady and Cameron Jerome are involved in a passionate long-range discussion about what tactics are required.

    Brady is suggesting that Jerome make a few more runs in pretty stark terms.

  24. Meanwhile, in Wales...

    Swansea v Man Utd (16:00 BST)

    Team news is just dropping for the day's second game, between Swansea and Manchester United.

    United make two changes from the team which started against Brugge in midweek.

    In come Bastian Schweinsteiger and Morgan Schneiderlin, with Adnan Januzaj and Michael Carrick out.

    Jay Rodriguez

    Jay Rodriguez is searching for his first goal in open play since his return from that long injury lay-off. He has spotted that the next fifteen minutes or so are a good hunting ground.

     The Southampton man cuts in off the flank and sends a curling shot just past the apex of post and bar. John Ruddy was just watching on.

    Jay Rodriguez keeps the party jumping as he kills a pass into him with one touch, flicks it up with his second and then pings a shot just wide from a tightening angle with his third.

    He is trying hard to impress.

  30. SUBSTITUTION

    Southampton 3-0 Norwich

    Bradley Johnson replaces Graham Dorrans, but Norwich are weeing into the wind now.

    "One Ronald Koeman," chant the Southampton fans.

  31. GOAL - Southampton 3-0 Norwich

    Dusan Tadic

    Dusan Tadic

    Norwich are disintegrating here and you can almost see some much-needed confidence flooding back into Southampton.

    Sadio Mane dollies up a cross for Graziano Pelle whose sharp downward header is saved by John Ruddy. 

    It's a good stop but the ball only dribbles into the path of Dusan Tadic to tap in from not much more than a yard.

  32. Post update

    Southampton 2-0 Norwich

    Steve Claridge

    BBC Radio 5 live at St Mary's

    "Any chance of Norwich getting something out of this game has evaporated, and to be fair it's no more than Southampton deserve."

  33. GOAL - Southampton 2-0 Norwich

    Dusan Tadic

    Dusan Tadic

    Goodbye, good night and good luck.

    That is surely 10-man Norwich sent back up to East Anglia with fat zero.

    Sadio Mane's cross drifts to Dusan Tadic at the back post and he hammers first time into the top corner.

  34. PENALTY APPEAL

    Southampton 1-0 Norwich

    This is like Groundhog Day. Graziano Pelle and Sebastien Bassong with a bit of push-me-pull-you in the penalty box as the cross comes in.

    Pelle gets in front of his man, but heads off target and is immediately complaining of a shirt pull.

    We've seen the same about three times already. None on its own warranted a penalty, but maybe he is hoping to build the pressure on Jon Moss.

  35. CLOSE!

    Southampton 1-0 Norwich

    Whomph! Graziano Pelle steps in and crashes a low shot right off the sweet spot of his instep. Edge of the area, arrowing towards the bottom corner, half of St Mary's think it is in.

    But the ball brushed the wrong side of the sidenetting from a Saints point of view.

  36. GREAT SAVE!

    Southampton 1-0 Norwich

    John Ruddy shanks his clearance kick straight to the feet of Sadio Mane who senses blood, swaying outside Sebastien Bassong and pinging a rising shot goalwards. 

    Ruddy is equal to it though, beating the ball away. The Norwich goalkeeper then pulls off a similar stop from Jay Rodriguez.

    All Southampton.

  37. Post update

    Cedric Soares bombs on down the right, but his cross is plucked out of the air by John Ruddy. Good claim.

    Southampton 1-0 Norwich

    Cameron Jerome might have left a sneaky one on Maya Yoshida there.

    The Norwich striker lifts a knee into the hip of the Japan international as they go up together for a header.

    That looked painful. Jerome escapes with a ticking off. Yoshida gets away with his pelvis intact.

  40. Post update

    Southampton 1-0 Norwich

    Norwich get a rare position to pepper the Southampton penalty box with crosses. Sebastien Bassong has stayed up to add some aerial threat, but Nathan Redmond's cross is a duffer, far too close to Maarten Stekelenburg.

  41. SHOWBOAT

    Southampton 1-0 Norwich

    Graziano Pelle

    Graziano Pelle is a strange mix of an old-fashioned bruiser of a centre-forward and your archetypal foreign fancy-dan.

    The Italian plays the latter role with an extravagant flick around the corner for Jay Rodriguez. Lovely touch, but Rodriguez has strayed offside.

    Southampton 1-0 Norwich

    Norwich, whose heatmap is on the right of these two images, have been most busy around their own penalty spot.

    That late Graziano Pelle goal means that they will have to chance their arm a little more in the second half.

    Had Cameron Jerome converted that chance halfway through the first half it might have been a very different scenario for Alex Neil's side.

    "It's a strange goal. Pelle makes his way inside of the defender and just helps it on inside the post. But Southampton have deserved that."

  50. GOAL - Southampton 1-0 Norwich

    Graziano Pelle

    Graziano Pelle

    Southampton were struggling to work out the puzzle of 10-man Norwich, but they hit on a solution just before the break.

    Sadio Mane gets goal-side of Alex Tettey and feeds the ball into the box where Graziano Pelle has got in front of Russell Martin to turn the ball beyond a helpless John Ruddy.

    He was only just onside from the pass.

  51. Post update

    Southampton 0-0 Norwich

    Oriol Romeu robs Graham Dorrans in midfield and Southampton burst forward, attempting to exploit the turnover.

    Norwich have kept plenty of men back though and hold a strong defensive line as the cross comes in. Graziano Pelle is up to meet it, but his knock-down fails to find a team-mate.

  52. Post update

    Southampton 0-0 Norwich

    Attack, attack, attack.

    Southampton's front three have one job - go and score a goal. The graphic below left shows how Dusan Tadic (11), Graziano Pelle (19) and Sadio Mane (10) are consistently close together and pouring forward.

    Norwich's Cameron Jerome (10), however, isn't getting much support from those behind him. That's unlikely to change as Norwich attempt to hold what they have with 10 men.

    Cameron Jerome

    Norwich's ten men are scurrying and scraping. Cameron Jerome is now doing a solo job up front, with his team-mates just dots on the defensive horizon.

    They are gagging for half-time and a chance to regroup. Southampton will want something to show for their dominance. Five to go.

    Dusan Tadic celebrated that red card for Steven Whittaker like a goal. His side, a man up, are already getting stuck into Norwich.

    "It's crazy. He was walking a tightrope as soon as he picked up that first yellow. Tadic knew what he was doing, but that was bonkers from Whittaker."

  58. RED CARD - Steven Whittaker

    Southampton 0-0 Norwich

    Steven Whittaker

    Snap! The first yellow card is followed by a second in quick succession. Steven Whittaker has a chunk of Dusan Tadic's shirt as the Southampton man attempts to get onto the end of James Ward-Prowse's chipped throughball.

    He's a goner.

  59. YELLOW CARD

    Southampton 0-0 Norwich

    Steven Whittaker with a cynical bit of play, blocking Matt Targett's attempt to take a quick throw-in to try and buy his side time to reorganise.

  60. Markovic on the move

    Phil McNulty

    BBC Sport chief football writer

    A bit of transfer news to bring you...

    Liverpool winger Lazar Markovic has joined Turkish side Fenerbahce on a season-long loan deal.

    A £20m signing from Benfica last summer, the 21-year-old is being allowed to move to aid his development and Liverpool insist he will be returning to Anfield.

    The Reds will receive a loan fee from Fenerbahce.

    Lazar Markovic
  61. CLOSE!

    Southampton 0-0 Norwich

    These two are having a right old wrestling match. Dusan Tadic teases in a cross from the left and that is the signal for Graziano Pelle and Sebastien Bassong to start grappling. Pelle slips the grasp of the Norwich defender, but can only glance his header wide from 10 yards.

    Pelle appeals for a penalty, but the referee is happy there was no significant obstruction from Bassong.

    After being blitzed for the first twenty minutes, Norwich are slowly peeping over the parapet.

    Nathan Redmond's deflected long-ranger is easily gathered by Maarten Stekelenburg in the Southampton goal. Redmond is looking bright though, taking on Matt Targett with relish.

  64. CLOSE!

    Southampton 0-0 Norwich

    Graeme Dorrans

    A massive chance, massively against the run of play.

    Graham Dorrans volleys the ball back across goal and a disorientated Southampton defence have lost track of Cameron Jerome.

    The ball is slightly in front of the Norwich striker, but a full-blooded diving header would have got him there. As it is he hesitates as to which body part to fling at the ball, goes for his head, but too late and glances wide.

  65. ACROBATIC EFFORT

    Southampton 0-0 Norwich

    Graziano Pelle

    As the ball looped up for him, back to goal, you could see the cogs whirling.

    Graziano Pelle launches into a hugely-ambitious bicycle kick, but it looked better than he connected. The ball bobbles well wide with John Ruddy untroubled.

    "The Dutchman will be only too aware that Southampton have won only one of their last nine Premier League games.

    "Norwich travel to St Mary's boasting an unbeaten record in the league away from home in 2015. In fact, manager Alex Neil was still playing for Hamilton the last time the Canaries lost a league game away from Carrow Road."

    Before this weekend, the last time West Ham won at Liverpool in the league the Beatles were top of the charts, You'll Never Walk Alone was just a Broadway musical number and President John F. Kennedy was drawing up plans for a fateful trip to Texas. Read more here.

    No wonder they are enjoying it...

    Intriguing...

  106. Goals galore

    Talking about Bournemouth's Callum Wilson...

    Leicester

    Who would have predicted that before the season started?

    The pair helped Leicester and Bournemouth to a 1-1 draw yesterday.

  108. Post update

    Swansea v Man Utd (16:00 BST)

    Will he start? Louis van Gaal isn't short of midfield options at the moment.

  109. Miserable start for Sunderland

    It hasn't been a great start to the season for Sunderland as they still wait for their first win.

    Jeremain Lens' second-half strike did earn them a point against Aston Villa though in Saturday's 2-2 draw.

    The Black Cats led when Yann M'Vila curled a superb 20-yard free-kick into the top corner.

    Villa hit back almost instantly when Lee Cattermole needlessly barged over Scott Sinclair, who calmly converted a low penalty before tapping in a second.  

  110. How does a transfer request actually work?

    Barry Fry, Wayne Rooney, John Stones

    A bit of Sunday morning reading for you here from my colleague Ben Dirs.

    With John Stones wanting to leave Everton for Chelsea and Saido Berahino eager to leave West Brom for Tottenham, Ben has been speaking to those who know about the ins and outs of a transfer request. 

    Why do people make them? Do they work? What does it mean for chairmen, agents and the players themselves?

    Enlighten yourself here.

  111. Possible exit?

    Will Yannick Bolasie leave Crystal Palace?

  112. How much?!

    You know it's nearly transfer deadline day when you see things like this. Sheffield Wednesday making £10m bids!

  115. Chelsea move stone dead?

    John Stones

    What will happen with Everton defender John Stones between now and the close of the transfer window? Nothing according to the Toffees.

    And manager Roberto Martinez believes the 21-year-old is a potential future England captain after an accomplished performance in Saturday's 0-0 with Tottenham at White Hart Lane.

    The centre-back did so on the back of intense scrutiny about his future after a transfer request was rejected.

  117. England expects

    England's squad for the Euro 2016 qualifiers against San Marino and Switzerland will be announced today and Leicester's Jamie Vardy and Swansea's Jonjo Shelvey will be in it.

    Boss Roy Hodgson has kept faith with Vardy after the striker was fined by his club amid claims of a racial slur in a casino.  

    While Shelvey, 23, won his only cap against San Marino in 2012.

    Will he celebrate by inspiring a win against Manchester United later?

    Perhaps Britain's long-distance champion Mo Farah could have been on the back pages for different reasons today?

  120. Sterling work

    What a start to the season it has been for Manchester City and their record signing Raheem Sterling.

    His first goal for City ended Watford's resistance on Saturday and helped his side continue their 100% winning start to the season with a 2-0 win. £49m well spent?

  121. Hammer time

    West Ham

    Anyone get the feeling West Ham are enjoying their first league win over Liverpool at Anfield since 1963?

    Quite rightly too....

  122. Boing, boing, Baggies

    Stoke had midfielders Ibrahim Afellay and Charlie Adam sent off as West Brom secured a first league win this season.

    Afellay went for reacting to a challenge by Craig Gardner before Adam followed six minutes later after appearing to stamp on Craig Dawson.

    West Brom took the lead when club record £12m signing Salomon Rondon headed home Rickie Lambert's cross - have a look at the goal here.

  124. Do Arsenal need a striker?

    The weekend got off to a perfect start for Arsenal - although their problems in front of goal almost came back to haunt them once more.

    The Gunners strolled to a 1-0 win at Newcastle, after summer signing Aleksandar Mitrovic was sent off in the first half for the hosts, but had to rely on Fabricio Coloccini's own goal to break the deadlock.

    Their failure to convert their dominance into goals is shown by their heat map, right, compared to Newcastle's on the left

    Time for Arsene Wenger to add a striker before Tuesday?

    • Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal has told 27-year-old Mexico striker Javier Hernandez he can leave Old Trafford. (Sunday Telegraph)

    Plenty of transfer gossip around on the back pages today as the scramble begins ahead of Tuesday's transfer deadline-day madness.

    • Bayern Munich have joined Paris St-Germain in trying to sign Everton defender Seamus Coleman, 26. (Daily Star Sunday)
    • West Brom striker Saido Berahino, 22, has not given up hope of completing a move to Spurs before the transfer window shuts on Tuesday. (Sunday Telegraph)
    • Arsenal are monitoring Leicester City's 24-year-old Algeria winger Riyad Mahrez. (Daily Star Sunday) 
  128. Money, money, money

    Spending by clubs in England still has some way to go on deadline day if it is to surpass the record figure of the last summer transfer window.

    Going in to the last week of this window, £680m had been spent, still some way short of 2014's £835m.

    However, the 2015 figure is 4% higher than at the same point last year.

    And with some big deals reportedly in the pipeline before Tuesday's deadline, there is every chance clubs could set a new benchmark for spending. Could be an exciting few days...

    With the close of the transfer window less than three days away, the Sunday Express leads on a story claiming Manchester United are about to let goalkeeper David De Gea leave the club, to boost their attempts of securing a big signing.

  131. Back pages

    Unsurprisingly, Mo Farah has knocked football off top spot in most newspapers this morning after securing gold in the World Athletics Championships 5,000m. You can watch that again here.

    But, there is still plenty of football on the back pages, with Jose Mourinho an angry man following their defeat by Crystal Palace taking centre stage in the Mail on Sunday.

    What a weekend of football it has already been. Jose Mourinho had his Stamford Bridge century celebrations spoiled.
