Liverpool Vs. Southampton: Reds Cruise To Win, Set Record For Best Start

Liverpool Vs. Southampton: Reds Cruise To Win, Set Record For Best Start

Klopp changed his system to accommodate Shaqiri, switching to 4-2-3-1 with Salah moved to the centre and Shaqiri playing behind.

"That's how it was at half-time, but he is a fantastic boy". He tried everything, the only problem was defensive. "He was good. I liked it".

When Shaqiri went off, it seemed like the life of the game followed him.

If one thing mattered nearly as much as the result it was for Salah to get off the mark and despite Klopp's defence of him ahead of the game, the German will have been undoubtedly delighted and somewhat relieved to see his star forward get on the scoresheet.

Southampton were the authors of their own downfall however when Hoedt misplaced Xherdan Shaqiri's deflected shot into his own net, with Liverpool going on to totally dominate from that point onward. His first Premier League start for the Reds was in the Swansea defeat but since then Liverpool have lost only four in 25 in all competitions with the Dutch defender in the line-up and all four were against teams of Champions League calibre.

Ferguson, the patriarch of Old Trafford, received a standing ovation as he took his seat in the stands for the first time since he underwent emergency surgery after a brain haemorrhage in May.

Democrats have objected to the deadline, not wanting to let the hearing degenerate into Kavanaugh's word against Ford's. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell expressed confidence on Thursday that Kavanaugh will ultimately be confirmed.

Since their last defeat against a team outside the big six - 1-0 at Swansea in January - their record in that category is W12 D3 L0.

On 10 minutes, after they had failed to clear a corner, Liverpool's No.23 made a smart run and received an equally intelligent pass from Mane.

The chance to write their names in the club's history books has not been lost on Klopp as he added: "Our 100% aim is to win the game and then the rest will follow". Despite initial claims from the Swiss playmaker, his dead ball didn't cross the line and it was definitely Salah's goal.

"I am pleased for Shaq".

"I still need some time but I am on a good way and we have a lot of games, a lot of players, so I hope that I can also play a few games more".

"He is a great lad, a good character in the group and I'm sure he will be a success here".
