Premier League: Southampton 1-2 Liverpool (Watch All Goals)
Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino’s goals gave Liverpool a 2-1 win at Southampton despite a late scare from the hosts.
With the European champions leading 2-0, Liverpool’s number two keeper – starting in place of the injured Alisson – cleared the ball against the shin of substitute Danny Ings to gift the Saints striker a goal against his former club.
A Liverpool performance which had started so poorly on the south coast still held a half-time lead thanks to Mane’s curling strike just before the break, and they marked a much-improved second half with a smart finish from Firmino (71).
Southampton were left with nothing to show for a spirited effort come the full-time whistle, while Liverpool continued their perfect start and avoided any major issues from their 4,000-mile round trip to Istanbul for the Super Cup last Wednesday.
