Game Report

Highlights

Liverpool survived a late scare to secure a hard fought victory at Southampton. It looked like game over when Roberto Firmino added to Sadio Mané's brilliant opener but Adrian's howler gifted Danny Ings a goal back and the Saints striker squandered a late chance to equalise.

Detail

It was Southampton who were surprisingly the more dangerous side for much of the first half. They twice threatened on crosses as Adrian made a sensational save to deny Maya Yoshida at point-blank range and Che Adams headed a great chance over.

Liverpool showed their superior class in attack by taking the lead on the stroke of half-time. Mané found space for a shot from outside the box which he whipped into the far corner.

The goal gave the visitors confidence and they looked much more assured in the second half. Firmino fired in a second after Southampton lost the ball in their own half.

Liverpool gifted their opponents a route back into the game with a terrible error from Adrian. The goalkeeper had looked shaky all game and fired the ball straight at Ings - with it rolling back into the net.

Ings had a glorious chance to snatch a point against his former club. The striker completely fluffed his finish in front of goal on Yan Valery's excellent low cross.

Summary

Southampton played well at times and should have nicked a point with that chance at the end. Liverpool will be relieved to go home with the win after a less than convincing display.
