Liverpool vs. Southampton - Football Match Report

That's the view of Reds legend Graeme Souness who saw Liverpool maintain their 100 per cent Premier League record with a 3-0 win over Southampton yesterday.

Some fans also felt the Cameroon worldwide has looked rusty this season, far below the high standards he set when he first joined the Anfield club.

Shaqiri scored eight goals in 36 league appearances for Stoke City last season and was on target for Switzerland in their Nations League victory over Iceland earlier in the month.

Liverpool meanwhile had plenty of chances to increase their lead - sub James Milner had two very good shots in quick succession before Salah thought he had his second of the afternoon, only to be flagged for offside.

The Merseyside outfit coasted to victory in the second half, but their triumph at home was not without its setbacks, as van Dijk limped off the pitch in the middle of the second half.

"I don't mean that with any negativity - we're delighted because we know his class better than most".

Three positives from Manchester United's draw with Wolves
United have fallen into a pattern of allowing teams back into games by not pushing for goals after having an advantage. Let's focus on the positives on the pitch from the 1-1 draw at Old Trafford. "It's a growth, a building of the team".

He tried everything and he is a good player to have.

"We were 3-0 down at half time and there is a danger you go completely under and that would have damaged us even more than the 3-0 performance in the first half", Hughes said.

"I lost seven games in a row once, that felt different", Klopp, who watched his side reclaim top spot in the Premier League, said. This is the kind of game they would expect to win, but it's still pleasing to do so - especially in such emphatic style and especially coming off the back of playing in the Champions League in midweek.

Will the 26-year-old get much game time this season?

Scoring against Southampton will have come as a huge relief and after the game he showed his class by making one young Liverpool fan's dreams come true.

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.
