SOUTHAMPTON, England — Manchester United rallied from a goal down to defeat Southampton 3-2 at St. Mary’s, as Liverpool drew 1-1 with Norwich and Tottenham beat Crystal Palace 1-0, in three Premier League games on Sunday.
United deservedly fell behind to a goal from Graziano Pelle, before Anthony Martial equalized with a composed finish from close range.
Martial got his second when Maya Yoshida played an awful backpass toward goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg. The third came from Juan Mata, scoring the rebound after Memphis Depay hit the post, before Pelle pulled one back with a header.
Liverpool was held at Anfield by Norwich, despite striker Daniel Sturridge partnering Christian Benteke in attack for the first time this season.
It was Danny Ings, who replaced the injured Benteke at halftime, who scored for Liverpool before Russel Martin
Tottenham beat Palace as South Korea forward Son Heung-min scored his first Premier League goal.
