Thanks for tuning in to our live coverage of Southampton vs Liverpool, which saw the Reds take all three points back to Merseyside.
FT: Southampton 1-2 Liverpool

Huge three points for Liverpool and no European hangover. 

Adrian’s howler gifted the Saints a route back into the game, but like the first half they were unable to take advantage of the momentum.

Four minutes added on.
88’ Final change for Liverpool as Oxlade-Chamberlain makes way for Henderson.
87’ Liverpool look to be holding on as Southampton pile on the pressure once again.

Three minutes plus stoppage time to go.

Liverpool were in complete control, Southampton looked dead and buried.

But, Adrian goes from hero to zero real quick for Liverpool as he gifts Ings a goal. 

Southampton back in it.

82’ GOAL!

An absolute howler from Adrian as he gives it straight to Danny Ings. Southampton have one back!

79’ Adrian makes a fine save to deny Matip. Nearly an own-goal!
78’ Alexander-Arnold booked.

Meanwhile, Salah is replaced by Origi for Liverpool.

77’ Bertrand is replaced by Djenepo for Southampton
76’ Gunn makes an outstanding save to deny Robertson making it three.
74’ Van Dijk takes the captain’s  armband from Milner as Fabinho replaces the No.7 
73’ Fabinho being readied for Liverpool
GOAL!!

Firmino puts Liverpool 2-0 up on 70 minutes! Skips past a number of Southampton players and drills it into the bottom corner, Mane with the assist. 

67’ Southampton make their second substitution as Adams is replaced by Armstrong.
64’ Liverpool nearly get a second as Mane is played in. Firmino should really score but he steers it wide. Would’ve been an incredible breakaway goal for the Reds.
63’ Former Red Danny Ings comes on for Romeu as Southampton make their first change.
Liverpool have caused Southampton all sorts of problems second half. Completely different side has stepped out onto the pitch.
55’ Salah is clean through but Gunn is down to make the save. Southampton appealed for offside but it appeared the Egyptian was just on. Liverpool looking brighter second half.
50’ Salah fires straight into the wall. Alexander-Arnold floats it back into the box but it’s deflected out for a corner.
49’ Matip wins a free kick for Liverpool on the edge of the box. 
We’re back underway...
HT: Southampton 0-1 Liverpool

A sensational strike from Mane the difference at the break. 

 

Liverpool will be relieved to be going in ahead, after a rather sloppy first half display. Southampton by far the dominant side, just unable to make the most of their chances.

GOAL

Absolutely out of nowhere Mane puts Liverpool ahead. 

 

From the edge of the box, he drills it into the back of the net. 

37’ HUGE CHANCE

 

Adams is in space in the box but is header just floats over the bar. Saints unlucky not to be ahead.

35’ Romeu receives a yellow card for a challenge on Robertson. Seems harsh given he appeared to win the ball cleanly.
32’ Salah makes a good run and Oxlade Chamberlain’s pass finds him. But the Egyptian’s shot is high and wide.
28’ Another chance for Southampton but it’s eventually cleared. 
23’ Alexander-Arnold’s cross just evades Firmino and goes out for a goal kick.
James Milner back on with a bandage on his head. The midfielder required stitches but Liverpool are back to 11 men.
20’ Outstanding save from Adrian to deny Southampton an opener. Yoshida’s header is kept out. 

 

The Saints putting on the pressure now.

Liverpool temporarily down to 10 men as Milner heads down the tunnel, presumably to get further treatment. 

 

Southampton nearly catch the Reds out on the counter but the cross is deflected out for a corner.

15’ Slight delay as Milner and Ward-Prowse clash heads. Milner receiving treatment on the sideline.
7’ Adrian gets lucky as his clearance deflects off Ward-Prowse and out for a goal kick. Could’ve easily gone in. Liverpool fortunate.
5’ Oxlade Chamberlain’s cross is unable to find Mane as it’s headed out for a corner by Ward-Prowse
3’ Milner finds himself in space and gets a shot away. It’s tame and comfortably held by Gunn.
We’re underway at St Mary’s..
The players are out! Kick off imminent.
Kick off just over 10 minutes away!

Previous Meetings
Southampton are yet to beat Liverpool in the Premier League since their 3-2 home victory in March 2016.

 

Last season this fixture saw the Reds come from behind to secure a 1-3 win with goals from Keita, Mohamed Salah and Jordan Henderson to negate Shane Long's early strike.

Early Team News

As Alisson continues his recovery, it is expected that new signing and Istanbul hero Adrian will step up in his absence. But, Jurgen Klopp confirmed today that the No.13 is also an injury doubt following a collision with a fan during the Super Cup celebrations. The Spaniard himself is confident he'll be fit to play tomorrow, but Liverpool's medical staff will have to make a late call on his fitness. 

The European Champions will also be without midfielder Naby Keita as he is sidelined with muscle strain. 

 

Ralph Hasenhuttl has a fully fit squad to choose from, with no injury concerns at present.

The two sides had contrasting result's on the Premier League's opening weekend with Liverpool cruising to a 4-1 victory over Norwich at Anfield and the Saints falling to a 3-0 defeat at the hands of Burnley.
Now the dust has settled after Liverpool's Super Cup victory in Istanbul, the Reds prepare to travel down south as they face Southampton at St Mary's Stadium. Kick off at 15:00 BST on Saturday August 17.
