Virgil van Dijk faces Southampton for the first time since joining Liverpool

Sadio Mane Liverpool

They have only won three league matches on their own patch this season, and only one team in the Premier League has won fewer.

Southampton were in desperate need of an early boost as the second half began but got the opposite as Mario Lemina appeared unwell and after returning to the action his block fell to Salah, who could only blast over.

He said: "Southampton's win at West Brom last weekend was big for them because they had waited so long for a Premier League win - 12 games and 10 weeks to be exact - and this game is a hard one to call". Sadio Mané has scored six goals in his last five Premier League appearances at St. Mary's Stadium but none of these were as a Liverpool player!

Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah combined for both goals at the beginning and end of the first half as Liverpool returned to winning ways in the top flight, handing Jurgen Klopp his 50th Premier League victory as manager. It was cold and blustery on Sunday and Southampton's defenders were as physical as referee Martin Atkinson would allow, but Firmino appears to relish such circumstances. A drop-off from a key player in other teams might have devastating consequences, but Firmino and Salah have more than papered over the cracks.

Arsenal manager Wenger praises Mkhitaryan commitment: Brilliant with extra training
"He called me a few times, he asked, "Will you come or not?' I said , 'First you have to tell me if you sign or not". I can understand him from step one and hopefully for the next games we are going to achieve more .

In the eyes of some home fans, this game was a free-hit. Here's to an emphatic three points.

Southampton responded well to going behind, but lacked a clinical touch as their wait for a first home league win since November continued.

On his club's hopes of avoiding relegation, he added: "It's emotional for a lot of people".

Karius, easily the busier of the two goalkeepers, was tested again just before the half-hour mark, halting Guido Carrillo's header from a James Ward-Prowse cross.
