Jota then doubled their lead in the 32nd minute before Thiago put the game to bed in the 37th minute. Southampton failed to convert their chances and was made to pay when Virgil Van Dijk scored a fourth in the 52nd minute.

Managers Reaction

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp: “The game went completely in our direction. We controlled the game pretty much. I said after the game to the boys, it was 4-0, what do I have to moan about? But we can and have to do much better. [Alisson’s] saves were too spectacular. But of course, a lot of things were really good.”

Southampton boss Ralph Hasenhuttl: “The first half was simply not good enough to be competitive against this team. We tried a different way of defending, and it was absolutely not working. Second half we changed to our normal behaviours.” he added. “They are on fire at the moment, you must say. We had chances, we can score, but it’s only a question of time when they speed up the game today. I think there was no chance today after the start we had.”
