Huddersfield Town continued their excellent start to life in the Premier League as David Wagner’s side drew 0-0 at home to Southampton on Saturday.

After winning their opening two matches of their first top-flight season in more than 40 years, Huddersfield lost their 100 percent record, but remain unbeaten and are still to concede a goal.

They dominated the first half without being able to find a way through a Southampton defence again deprived of want-away Dutch defender Virgil van Dijk, and for whom new signing Wesley Hoedt was an unused substitute.

Looking to bounce back from a midweek League Cup defeat to second-tier Wolverhampton Wanderers, the visitors had chances in the second half through Nathan Redmond and Ryan Bertrand, but had to settle for a point.

Mauricio Pellegrino’s men are also unbeaten three games into the new Premier League campaign with five points to their name.

* Teenager Tammy Abraham scored his first Premier League goal with Swansea City’s first shot on target this season before Jordan Ayew’s second-half strike sealed a 2-0 win over Crystal Palace.

The 19-year-old Abraham, on loan from Chelsea, volleyed in Leroy Fer’s cross on 44 minutes after a tepid first half at Selhurst Park.

Ayew then latched on to a through ball after error-prone defending by Palace before rounding goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey and poking the home on 48 minutes.

The home side sprung to life when French midfielder Yohan Cabaye was brought on in the second half, but with few clearcut chances, Palace never really looked like avoiding their third successive loss of the season.

* Watford played with 10 men for three quarters of the game, but held on comfortably for a 0-0 draw at home to Brighton and Hove Albion to maintain their unbeaten start to the Premier League season.

Uruguayan defender Miguel Britos was sent off for a wild tackle on Anthony Knockaert midway through the first half, home manager Marco Silva responding by subbing the skilful Nordin Amrabat for defender Craig Cathcart.

Watford’s plans were undermined again when Cathcart was injured and had to be replaced by Andre Carrillo for his debut, having signed on loan from Benfica.

Either side of Britos’s red card, Brighton hit the woodwork, first with Knockaert and then through Tomer Hemed, but they struggled to carve out opportunities against a Watford side who were deep in defence.
