"We will try to win the next game and until the end we will be there".

It seems Klopp already has a 30-goal per season striker - not only that, but one who contributes to the team's build-up and presses better than any other attack-minded player in the league.

Klopp's side could have added further gloss to the scoreline as they missed a couple more opportunities, but Southampton never looked like fighting back and Liverpool successfully capitalised on United's 1-0 defeat at Newcastle United earlier on Sunday.

The Premier League match between Southampton and Liverpool will be broadcast live online and on NBC.

The Reds have now lost just one of their last 18 Premier League games, whereas Southampton equal an unwanted club record of seven successive home games without a Premier League victory. "

"We scored wonderful goals, both of them and we should have had more in the second half with some big changes.


Rooney explains why Mkhitaryan will succeed at Arsenal
He's got aggression, passion, desire and you can see he's a victor - I think that's what United have lacked. Rooney also spoke about some of Ferguson's team-talks, a facet of his management Roy Keane complimented.

The scorer brilliantly returned the favour to his provider for Liverpool's second shortly before half-time; the contender for assist of the season came by virtue of a one-two which saw Firmino deliver an exquisite backheel that put Salah through on goal to claim his 29th of the season in all competitions.

The centre-back turned out 80 times for the St Mary's side before his £75 million transfer to the Reds last month.

Van Dijk tried to open the door to join his former teammates instead of going to the away dressing room, before realising that he actually plays for Liverpool.

The pace that Liverpool have could cause a real issue for out back-line with Salah reeking havoc in the reverse fixture! I don't think nine points from Arsenal is enough to have rest but it is nine points. We had a little chat before the game, asking him what he thought.
