LONDON, Aug 21 (AP): Liverpool�s 11-year wait for a Premier League victory at Arsenal ended on Saturday, and Chelsea rallied against West Bromwich Albion to give Andre Villas-Boas his first win in charge.

Luis Suarez and Raul Meireles came off the bench to inspire Liverpool to a 2-0 win after Arsenal was reduced to 10 men when Emmanuel Frimpong received a second booking for a rash challenge on Lucas Leiva.

Aaron Ramsey inadvertently deflected in Liverpool�s opener and Suarez netted the second in stoppage time against an Arsenal side depleted by injuries and suspensions.

�We live under circumstances where every defeat is an absolutely a disgrace and an earthquake,� said Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, whose side drew its opener last weekend. �We are very disappointed that we lost the game, but we are at the start of the season.�

Chelsea, which also opened with a draw, beat West Brom 2-1 after Florent Malouda and Nicolas Anelka scored in the second half to wipe out Shane Long�s fourth-minute goal.

In the northeast derby, Newcastle won 1-0 at Sunderland, while Alex McLeish�s first home game as Aston Villa manager ended in a 3-1 victory over Blackburn.

Two newly promoted sides picked up their first points, with Queens Park Rangers winning 1-0 at Everton and Swansea drawing 0-0 against Wigan.
