From the European night at Anfield to the Saturday evening in the Premier League, Liverpool yet again thrashed their opponents. Liverpool secured a back to back 4-0 victory in the league and this time it was against Southampton, let’s have a look at the match highlights.
The kick-off saw a quickfire attacking play from both sides. And the Reds were the one who took the advantage quite early in the game by scoring their first within 2 minutes. Jurgen Klopp’s men took on from where they left against Arsenal last weekend. In a similar fashion as the first one, Diogo Jota yet against found the back of the net to give Liverpool a 2-goal cushion right at the half-hour mark.
Meanwhile, Thiago yet again was wearing his shooting boots, the one he wore against Porto in the mid-week. And thus he scored again from a shot on target which landed in the Saints nets via a deflection. With this, the first half came to an end making the scoreline read as 3-0 in favour of Liverpool.
The 2nd half began just as the first and it was getting quite difficult for the Saints to keep the Reds quiet. The assist king showed his class again from the corner delivering the ball right in the feet of Virgil van Dijk, who struck the ball past McCarthy to give Liverpool a heavy lead of 4 goals.
Thus, with this now Liverpool moves to the 2nd spot in the Premier League table. While Chelsea and Manchester City have a game yet to play, the Reds are now just a point behind the Blues.
