Southampton vs. Liverpool: Virgil van Dijk returns to former club

Southampton vs. Liverpool live stream: Watch Premier League online

It was a sloppy start from the home side, and Liverpool nearly doubled their advantage shortly afterwards when Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain - one of five former Southampton players in the visitors' matchday squad, including January arrival Virgil van Dijk - saw his deflected drive kept out by Alex McCarthy.

An incredible photograph of the feet of Liverpool midfielder Adam Lallana has garnered attention online this evening, following his side's victory over Southampton.

Liverpool goes into Sunday's game at St Mary's Stadium in fourth place in the Premier League, with Spurs having leapfrogged them with their 1-0 win against Arsenal at Wembley.

"Loris was there. I'm really happy for that because as a Liverpool 'keeper you need special moments to convince the people", Klopp said showing his public support for Karius, who has been under the spotlight for some high-profile errors this season. It's tight in the Premier League and the teams can change around.

Southampton versus Liverpool games are like a derby nowadays so the fans and players should be well up for this one.

The home side were soon made to pay for those missed opportunities as Salah played a lovely one-two with Firmino, who backheeled the ball into his path, and stroked home his 22nd league goal of an outstanding season.

The centre-back turned out 80 times for the St Mary's side before his £75 million transfer to the Reds last month.

"Hopefully we feel at the end of the game that we are growing and we are continuing with this feeling".
