Liverpool 3-1 Southampton: Salah breaks Torres, Fowler and Suarez record

Liverpool 3-1 Southampton: Salah breaks Torres, Fowler and Suarez record

In terms of fixtures and points, Man City know that if they win their game in-hand (at bitter rivals Manchester United), they will go one point clear of Liverpool, plus Pep Guardiola's men have a seven-goal advantage on goal difference as things stand. There are a number of reasons for this but the main one seems to be the opinion that Liverpool fans would be unbearable if they won the title. Ideally, both teams will want big wins in the first legs so they can put their focus back on the title race and the finals games of the PL season.

Salah, who had not scored for eight matches - his worst run at Liverpool - said he was "very happy" to end the drought and help his side.

Long's strike was also significant in that it marked an inevitable, but still unwelcome, milestone for Liverpool who have now conceded 5000 goals in the English top-flight, 125 years after Coombe Hall netted the first goal against the Reds for Blackburn in 1894.

Mohamed Salah scored a world class goal.

Yet, on this occasion he chose the right option despite the presence of Roberto Firmino in support.

"It wasn't the signing itself that surprised me, it was the amount" Neville told Sky Sports.

"I think as a striker you need to score".

The Guinea global averaged seven goals a season in the Bundesliga with RB Leipzig, but has failed to score at all in the Premier League this season.

Last year, Salah was named Professional Footballers' Association Player of the Year and the Football Writers' Association's Footballer of the Year after he scored 44 goals for Liverpool in all competitions.

"We have 82 points now, that is massive in this insane league and everyone is waiting for us", Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp told Sky Sports. "I am really happy with the performance, we knew it would be hard so winning here is not easy but we did it".

"It is a hard year for everybody, you need to have 70-75 points for the (top-four) Champions League and 90-something for the title".

"It was a big performance in the second half and a big result". With Jordan Henderson and James Milner preparing to come on, Naby Keita powered into the area and was fouled. It is nice for Naby Keita to score the first to show Southampton it will not be easy for them. Liverpool had far more control of the game after the break, but had to wait until 10 minutes from time for the crucial goal and it came on the counter-attack from a Southampton corner. It was good, I liked it.
