Van Dijk starts on Southampton return

GETTY Sadio Mane is confident Liverpool will claim a top four finish this season

Sadio Mane Liverpool

Liverpool's routine 2-0 win over struggling Southampton left Jurgen Klopp beaming, praising what he felt was a "nearly perfect" day at St Mary's.

The African forward started the weekend one goal adrift of the Premier League's leading goal-scorer Harry Kane before the England global netted the victor in the north London derby.

The reds saw off Southampton 2-0 away from home thanks to goals from Roberto Firmino and Mo Salah in the first half.

Liverpool make three changes to their side for the Premier League clash with Southampton.


It was satisfying to see attacking intent at the Hawthorns as we managed to score three goals away from home and should've scored more!

The two-goal lead was harsh on Southampton going into half time, but it nearly got worse in the opening stages of the second half when Mane's acrobatic effort was blocked and fell at the feet of Salah, although this time the prolific winger scooped his finish over the crossbar.

"I enjoyed it a lot", Van Dijk said.

"We will try to win the next game and until the end we will be there".


Southampton are unbeaten in their six previous Premier League games played on a Sunday this season, though five of those have ended as draws.

Just two months later Van Dijk arrived at St Mary's to face his old club Southampton, but shortly before kick-off the centre-back made an awkward mistake as he arrived at the stadium.

The pace that Liverpool have could cause a real issue for out back-line with Salah reeking havoc in the reverse fixture! "We understand the emotions of the fans but we have to keep this going". "I think we deserved the three points, [we got a] clean sheet, no injuries - [it was] almost flawless". We had a little chat before the game, asking him what he thought.
