Liverpool made a 2:0 victory in Southampton. Merseyside secured their success before the break. At the sixth minute Salah found Firmino, who opened the score. The Brazilian returned the game with a heel out his teammate in the 42nd minute when the score was 0:2. The three points returned to Juergen Klop in third place, with only two points behind Manchester United and four-fifths Chelsea. Southampton ended up in the field with 26 points. After a few quick attacks on the start, Liverpool led the sixth minute. Mohamed Salah was brought out of Oklahoma-Chamberlain behind his opponent`s defense. Two players were uncovered in the penalty area and the Egyptian found Firmino, who directed the ball to the net. Two minutes later, a new rapid attack on Juergen Klop`s team ended with an Oklahoma-Chamberlain kick, but home keeper Alex McCarthy did it. The most expensive defender in the world, Virgil Van Dyke was greeted with violent whistling at each ball touch. After the good start of Merseyside, Southampton gradually recovered and looked at the opponent`s door. In the 18th minute the hosts came up with an excellent opportunity for leveling. Rumeu found Hoyberg on the far beam, but his shot was greatly reflected by the forward Karius.
The saints not only equaled the game according faq but also took the initiative. In half an hour the guest`s goalkeeper had to intervene again. Karius slapped Ward-Praus`s head, which was well-targeted. Seconds ago, Carrieu shot his head, but the ball went into the hands of the German watchman. Shortly before the break, Liverpool secured a solid lead. A double hand between Salah and Firmino, who returned the ball with his heel, ended with another goal for the Egyptian. He scored for the 22nd time in the Premier League since the start of the season, with one strike behind the leader of the archer Harry Kain.
After the break, the tempo was lower and the positions less. Southampton did not hurt the guests, and Klope`s team patiently waited for the minutes to pass, still attacking with good opportunities. In the 71st minute, Merseyside missed a third goal. Mane entered the penal field, hesitated, then found Firmino, who fired. The shot was saved by McCarthy, the ball came to Salah, who sent the ball into the net but on the outside of the door. Liverpool`s strong minutes and a few excellent attacks followed, but they did not end with a goal kick. Adam Lalana missed a shot in the 85th minute after he was brought out of Salah. The guests kept the ball in large seconds in the second half, keeping their lead calmly - something they rarely managed to do from the start of the season.
