SOUTHAMPTON, England (AP) - Virgil van Dijk’s first goal in England and Sadio Mane’s third in two games helped fire Southampton to a 3-1 win over Swansea in the Premier League on Saturday.

Center half Van Dijk, who was signed for 13 million pounds (19.7 million dollars) on deadline day from Celtic, headed the opening goal in the 11th before Dusan Tadic struck 10 minutes after the start of the second half.

Mane then added the third in the 61st to make it nine goals for the Saints this week following their League Cup 6-0 demolition at second-tier MK Dons.

Swansea is without a win from the last four matches, although it at least got the first goal in that stretch when Gylfi Sigurdsson converted a penalty at St. Mary’s Stadium in the 83rd.
