After an unexpected break last weekend, Liverpool were back in Premier League action as Southampton visited Anfield.

The Saints sit just two places above the relegation zone, but the 10-point gap they have over Fulham means they are all but safe from the drop.

That meant Ralph Hasenhüttl’s side had less to play for than the hosts, as Liverpool need to be pretty much perfect from now until the end of the campaign if they want to make the top four.

The Reds were unbeaten in their previous five league games, but disappointing draws against Leeds and Newcastle in their last two outings put more pressure on this final run-in.

It looked for a while as though they would struggle to kill off the game here once again after Sadio Mané’s first half header, but Alisson kept his side ahead multiple times and Thiago found the net late on to secure a much-needed win.
