With just one goal in his last seven games for Liverpool ahead of Saturday’s clash with Southampton, Sadio Mane knew he had to get back to how to score. And, luckily for Liverpool, that’s exactly what he did.

Looking dangerous on offense from the start of the game, Sane struck after just 31 minutes when a magnificent cross from Mohamed Salah allowed the striker to propel an important goal with a header inside the left post.



While the result may suggest Liverpool scored a standard victory over Southampton, the way the game unfolded couldn’t have been further from that suggestion.

Liverpool certainly had their chances but also Southampton and without Alisson’s heroics in goal it might have been a completely different result for Klopp’s side.

Whether it was putting a glove on Nathan Tella’s head in the first half or the powerful block he made on Ibrahima Diallo’s shot at the end of the second half, Alisson made his best for Liverpool and helped secure the three points.



Although Salah never got his name on the scoresheet, the Egypt international was at the heart of everything Liverpool did in attack on Saturday night.

Without a doubt, the senior striker’s biggest contribution came just past the half hour mark when he prepared Mane for Liverpool’s goal in the first half, but Salah was constantly on the hunt for a goal. throughout the game and looked back at his best.
