The Liverpool 2-0 victory over Southampton was an interesting one. The Ox managed to make the starting line-up along with 2 of the 5 ex-Southampton players now playing for Liverpool, walking on to the field. Most of the jeering came from Southampton supporters when Van Dijk got a hold of the ball.
Oxlade-Chamberlain put ina good effort with a few assists that helped Firmino and Salah their goals. Not to take anything away from the goal scorers themselves. They assisted each other with quick passes to one another to help score their respective goals.
Firmino did the gentlemanly thing and popped a quick ball back to Salah to return the favour towards the end of the first half. That’s not to Southampton made no effort on their home ground; on the contrary they had a good few shots at goal in the end, but it wasn’t enough to overcome a lethal Liverpool attack and strong defense.
