Southampton Vs. Liverpool: Reds Win, Break Saints’ Resolve With Late Goals

by

Late strikes from Mohamed Salah and Jordan Henderson sent Liverpool back to the Premier League summit with a 3-1 comeback win over Southampton on Friday night at St. Mary’s Stadium.

Salah ran the length of the opposition half to slot a finish into the right corner in the 80th minute, and Henderson tucked the third home six minutes later to settle another hard-fought result for Jürgen Klopp?s team.

Shane Long had opened the scoring for Saints in the ninth minute with a clinical, low drive past Alisson Becker, but Naby Keita?s first goal for the Reds restored parity before the break.

The final score meant Liverpool moved back above Manchester City at the top of the standings, two points clear having played one more game than the reigning champion.
