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

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp says he substituted Xherdan Shaqiri early during the Reds' 3-0 win against Southampton because he wanted more control of the game.

While Liverpool were a formidable force going forward last season, Klopp seems to have finally solved their defensive failings by bringing in goalkeeper Alisson and centre-back Virgil van Dijk in the last nine months. For a team with the best defence of recent seasons, these are unusual times.

And he reflected: "We want to do this every game".

"I'm really, really happy about how we played the game today, because it was clear it was a really hard game, we knew that form the last few games when we played Southampton, but today we were in a really good mood", Klopp said.

Shaqiri was pivotal in Liverpool's first and third goals at Anfield on Saturday but was unable to build on his first-ever start for the club, having been withdrawn for James Milner at the break.

Jurgen Klopp revealed on Friday that the Croatian is close to a return to action but was not yet ready to feature.

"Different challenges, different styles of opponent, the boys were there, really in the situation and in the game". The start was good for the team and also him as well.


"It should not be too serious". You saw the free kick was outstanding. He said he could not shout more-which is 60 percent less!

The match will be played at the Emirates stadium and it will start from 08:30 pm India time.

While the Saints enjoyed some promising moments they could not find the cutting edge to worry their opponents.

Liverpool have just beaten Tottenham Hotspur and PSG and if they were to come out of this run of games unscathed, then you just have to wonder if this team can be stopped.

You'd have been forgiven for thinking we were at Molineux at times today. We're not the first and won't be the last not to cope with their attacking threat.

Wolves' ownership has spoken of their ambition being similar to that of City's, so recruiting Neves from them in mid-season will be incredibly hard for the Premier League champions, explaining the prohibitive price tag placed on him.

"We were unfortunate with the opening goal, a ricochet off a couple of players and it ends up in the back of the net".
