EPL: Liverpool spank Saints, climb up to third

Dejan Lovren reveals the mental turmoil he puts himself through when making mistakes

Liverpool's signing of Van Dijk was a huge high point, as the team's defence was causing Jurgen Klopp and their fans all sorts of nightmares, so when the Dutchman scored the victor in the Merseyside derby in the FA Cup third round he was an instant hero.

The clash against Southampton ended 2-0 and Liverpool moved up into the Premier League top three.

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.

However, defending wasn't brilliant, especially from balls into the box and so the likes of Hoedt and Stephens will need to watch out for this as Liverpool could really damage us with the likes of Mane, Firmino and Salah.

Nonetheless, Matip is looking forward to improving his game alongside the Dutch defender, and help the team to secure the Champions League promotion.

Firmino also contradicts any assumption that he is a South American who might not relish the rough and tumble of an English winter.




Liverpool are reportedly set to offer Firmino a new contract that will keep him at the club until the end of his playing career.

Heading into this season, Sadio Mane was billed as Liverpool's most important player, but injury and a loss of form means his goal tally remains in single digits.

In the eyes of some home fans, this game was a free-hit.

Southampton responded well to going behind, but lacked a clinical touch as their wait for a first home league win since November continued. Here's to an emphatic three points.

Karius then tipped over a Ward-Prowse header as the Saints found some momentum, and the same player had another chance after Bertrand had crossed with five minutes of the opening half remaining. The signs are ominous for the St Mary's boss, even if his 18th-placed team do manage to avoid relegation.
