Player Ratings: Liverpool vs Southampton - September 22nd, 2018

Fellaini accepts United closing gap to Premier League summit will be difficult

Fellaini accepts United closing gap to Premier League summit will be difficult

Switzerland worldwide Shaqiri was influential in his first Premier League start for the Anfield side, smacking the bar with a free kick that led to Mohamed Salah's tap in, but was withdrawn as Klopp looked to shut up shop.

Jurgen Klopp's men seem to have launched a serious title bid, with just two goals conceded in six games and a star-studded attacking line.

Liverpool stormed back to the top of the Premier League with 3-0 victory over Southampton with Mohamed Salah back among the goals at Anfield.

With Trent Alexander-Arnold, Andy Robertson and Allison between-the sticks, it's no exaggeration to say that the once-derided defensive unit could be the best in the Premier League.

And Klopp was happy to welcome another unexpected milestone on his team's journey. Making six or seven changes today was never an option, we had to go through that game.

"I wanted not to do the same thing as always and expect something special from the boys but help them a bit with a different position".

The 26-year-old, on his first start since a £12million summer move from Stoke, had a hand in the Reds' first and third goals but still had to be sacrificed at the break because Klopp felt holes needed to be plugged.

At least 86 dead after Lake Victoria ferry accident; rescue efforts ongoing
The ferry was said to have been particularly busy because it was market day in Bugorora, on Ukerewe island. Deadly maritime disasters have become all too familiar in Tanzania, and overcrowding is often the cause.

"A few weeks ago you all told me there were very tough weeks and nobody thought about Southampton - that made the game a real challenge, apart from the quality of Southampton anyway".

City make the trip to Anfield on October 7 and, while they have three games before that encounter, Gundogan knows how important that clash is shaping to be.

Van Dijk, said Klopp, aggravated bruised ribs which he carried into the PSG game in midweek.

Can Liverpool beat Chelsea twice in a row?

Neves moved to Wolves previous year and helped them win promotion back to the top flight, with the Times reporting that the club "resisted a series of approaches ahead of their return to the Premier League".

The result is everything, of course, but the flimsiness of Spurs' display did little to suggest that some of the problems that have dogged them so far this season have been solved.
