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 threatened a late fightback when Adrian comically hurried a clearance into Ings’ shins with the ball finding the back of the net. The former Liverpool man squandered another late chance from close range as Klopp’s men escaped.

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.
