Great day for those at home. Liverpool achieved an important victory against Southampton on the 13th date of the Premier League and already has 28 points, remaining in second position, but only one unit behind Chelsea. Thiago Alcántara, Virgil van Dijk and Diogo Jota were in charge of scoring the four goals of the victory.
Just over an hour and the quality of Diogo Jota were enough for Jurgen Klopp’s team to beat Ralph Hasenhuettl’s team, which suffered its second defeat in a row and returned to approach the relegation zone.
After two minutes Liverpool were already ahead after Jota took advantage of a ball received from Andrew Robertson to beat Alex McCarthy. At 32 ‘, the Portuguese returned to take the ball to the net to pass from Mohamed Salah.
And on the brink of halftime, Klopp’s men sentenced the clash against a resigned opponent with a shot inside the area by Spaniard Thiago Alcántara, which extended his scoring streak.
Klopp’s box rounded off the win at the start of the second half. A corner kick from Trent Alexander Arnold was culminated by Dutch center-back Virgil Van Dijk. With the meeting sentenced, the rhythm fell. Liverpool no longer needed, now Chelsea host Manchester United on Sunday and must get a good result to extend the difference.
Notably, Diogo Jota’s goal at 97 seconds was the fastest of the Premier League season.
