Sept. 2 (Bloomberg) -- Arsenal won 2-0 at Liverpool as new signings Lukas Podolski and Santi Cazorla scored, sending the hosts stumbling to their worst league start in 50 years.
Podolski’s left-foot strike went past Liverpool goalkeeper Pepe Reina in the 31st minute for the Gunners’ first goal of the season. Cazorla’s shot snuck under the keeper in the 68th minute.
Liverpool has beaten the north London club once in the last 11 league matches, and the loss pushed the Reds to their worst start in 50 years. Liverpool has 1 point from the first three games, which matches the start from the 1962-63 season as the worst in the club’s history.
For Arsenal, which started the season with two 0-0 draws, it was the first time in 88 years the team hasn’t allowed a goal in its first three matches.
Newcastle hosts Aston Villa and Southampton meets Manchester United in the day’s late matches.
