Liverpool beat Saints as Firmino and Salah hit target

Liverpool beat Saints as Firmino and Salah hit target

As mentioned, Van Dijk will play his first game for Liverpool against the side that he left just over a month ago for a world-record £75 million.

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".

Firmino then turned provider just before the break, returning the favour to Salah, who finished with aplomb to effectively end the chances of a home side who got progressively worse after the break.

Salah missed a huge chance to move level with the Englishman when he side-footed into the side-netting with the goal at his mercy after Alex McCarthy had saved Firmino's initial effort 20 minutes from time.

What a start it was for Liverpool as they made sure the beginning of the game was a nightmare one for their hosts.

Liverpool defeated Southampton by a decisive 2-0 scoreline on Sunday evening.

Karius, easily the busier of the two goalkeepers, was tested again just before the half-hour mark, halting Guido Carrillo's header from a James Ward-Prowse cross.

While Southampton did not manage to score in the 25 minutes following the goal, there were clearly positive signs for the Saints as they went in search of a much-needed equaliser.

"We knew the strengths of Southampton and how they want to play football, so we wanted to defend and change the game to counter", Klopp told Sky Sports.

Van Dijk had been subjected to criticism following shock defeats by Swansea City and West Bromwich Albion and conceding a last-gasp penalty as Spurs snatched a draw at Anfield in his previous three outings.
