"I was not too lucky with scoring goals during my time at Liverpool but I hope that maybe this season I can score a few more goals".

Joe Gomez was rested for the clash, with Matip trusted to start after recovering from his own injury issues. He was good, I liked it.

"Offensively, it was a good idea, but we have to work a bit more on that".

The Saints could not get to the break for some respite as Shaqiri, who was surprisingly hooked at half time despite his contribution to two goals, whipped a 30-yard free kick against the crossbar, and Salah raced in to tap home the rebound from only a yard out.

Salah is, however, creating more chances for his Liverpool team-mates this season averaging 3.36 per 90 minutes compared to 1.91 last term. I still need some time but (I'm) looking forward to the next game.

751 minutes of Premier League football have been played at the stadium since a visiting team last hit the net, Michail Antonio's strike for West Ham United in February.

The result extended Liverpool's 100 per cent start to the campaign to seven matches in all competitions. Usually I don't explain substitutions at half-time, but I thought today it makes sense.

Van Dijk will likely sit out of Wednesday's League Cup clash with Chelsea, with a view to being fit and fresh for the trip to Stamford Bridge next Saturday evening.

'All the different challenges with the different styles of the opponent, the boys were there.

A third defeat in six league matches leaves Southampton on five points. People are very positive about this player, this player, and I have to decide do I talk to them about them or not, do I leave him alone in this situation, but everything is fine really.

Despite conceding three before half-time at Anfield, manager Mark Hughes remains optimistic about their progress. "But then we won game No. 8 5-0, very cool".

The second half was rather a non-event, with Salah's disallowed finish after James Milner's shot was cleared off the line the closest Liverpool came to adding gloss to the scoreline. "I am really sure we are mature enough to understand it".

'Hopefully as the season progresses we will prove that along the way'.
