EPL: Liverpool spank Saints, climb up to third

Liverpool Dejan Lovren Southampton

He said: "Southampton's win at West Brom last weekend was big for them because they had waited so long for a Premier League win - 12 games and 10 weeks to be exact - and this game is a hard one to call".

Perhaps Southampton's defence were guilty of giving their opponents too much time and space, but it is impossible to account for an assist of that nature from Firmino, and Salah is ruthless in front of goal when given a chance.

Southampton responded well and exerted pressure on their visitors, with Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg forcing Karius into action from close range in the 18th minute.

On an afternoon when Van Dijk shrugged off the jeers of his former club's home fans in an assured display in defense, Salah and Firmino excelled at the other end of the pitch to push Liverpool into third place and within two points of second-placed Manchester United.

Team USA Olympians Who Are Also Parents
If Flyers captain Claude Giroux watches any of next month's Olympic hockey tournament, one name might jump out at him. The quality of play with no NHLers-and no Russian team-is going to be disappointedly different from years past.

When Pellegrino replaced Ward-Prowse with Shane Long in his pursuit of a reaction, Southampton's supporters again chanted, "You don't know what you're doing".

Lallana, who was introduced as a late substitute by Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp, posted the following photo online shortly after the full-time whistle, with the caption "any suggestions for defrosting feet". Mohamed Salah doubled Liverpool's score in the 42nd minute.

The two-goal lead was harsh on Southampton going into half time, but it nearly got worse in the opening stages of the second half when Mane's acrobatic effort was blocked and fell at the feet of Salah, although this time the prolific winger scooped his finish over the crossbar. We had a little chat before the game, asking him what he thought. The Tottenham striker has recorded 23 goals this term. Southampton by contrast are sinking into a desperate situation as they barely put up a fight on Sunday. Van Dijk left with his first clean sheet since joining Liverpool.
