Jordan Henderson On Bench - Liverpool Team vs Southampton Confirmed

LISTEN Friday Night Football podcast from Southampton vs Liverpool | Football News

Jamie Carragher couldn't contain his delight with Mohamed Salah's decisive goal in Liverpool FC's 3-1 victory over Southampton at Anfield on Friday night.

After sprinting from deep inside his own half after Liverpool scrambled clear a Southampton corner, Salah cooly side-footed a left-foot shot into the bottom corner from the edge of the box to put his team 2-1 up.

Liverpool are towards the tale end of a season-long title race with Manchester City, and each member of staff can be forgiven if the stress of it all is getting to them a little bit.

Roberto Firmino had appeared as an option on Salah's left on the play, but when asked if he ever pondered squaring the ball to his Brazilian teammate, Salah replied: "Not at all!" "Everybody was probably waiting for the pass to Bobby (Firmino). It was good, I liked it". "Go, go, go, and a world-class finish".

Although he hadn't found the back of the net since February 2nd, Salah was adamant he only had one thing on his mind.

And if fellow forward Sadio Mane passes Salah the ball, there's a good chance he will score then too, with the Senegal worldwide providing the most assists (seven) out of all his Liverpool team-mates. As a striker you need to score.




The goal was sweet relief for Salah who was on a run of eight games without scoring in all competitions and makes him the fastest Liverpool player to hit 50 in the Premier League in just 69 appearances.

Jordan Henderson also ended his goal drought this evening when he tapped in Liverpool's third late on, guaranteeing them a return to the top of the league.

Jurgen Klopp surprised people before the game with his team sheet that included a midfield that most fans didn't complain about.

The visitors began to dominate proceedings in the second half and eventually broke through in the 80th minute when Salah scored to end a goal drought that had lasted nearly eight weeks.

"It was goal number 50 for Liverpool (in the league), an incredible number".

Targeting the visitors' right-hand side, the Saints got themselves into great positions time and again, taking an early lead after nine minutes, while their energy and fight was too much for their title-chasing opposition to handle.
