Premier League LIVE: Rampant Liverpool trash Southampton 4-0 to put pressure on Chelsea and Man City in title race – In Matchday 13 of the Premier League, the Saints fell apart to the dominant display by Liverpool. Jurgen Klopp’s side saved all their heavy metal hits for before the break, with Jota and Robertson to the fore on several occasions, while they strolled through the second period against an inept Saints side. Only some slightly wasteful finishing and a second-half shift down in gears prevented dominant Liverpool from racking up a greater margin of victory at Southampton’s expense today.

Both the sides had a strong start with attack flowing from both ends but Liverpool ended up with an early goal and their performance was just too much for the Saints in the end. While Southampton have a more realistic chance of returning to winning ways in home games versus Leicester and Brighton during the coming week, they will be concerned at the meek nature of their defeat on Merseyside. Their hosts, meanwhile, are in fine form ahead of Wednesday’s local derby with Everton, having scored 10 times in winning their last three matches – without conceding a goal.

FULL TIME LIVERPOOL 4-0 SOUTHAMPTON

Scorers: Jota 2′, 32′, Thiago 37′, Van Dijk 52′

Liverpool racked up their second 4-0 win in a row when they comfortably overcame Southampton at Anfield. The hosts made a fast start and took the lead after less than two minutes, when Diogo Jota tucked away Jordan Henderson’s cut-back from close range.

Sadio Mané then thought he’d made it 2-0 in the 12th minute when he finished from Andy Robertson’s free-kick delivery from the left, but the flag was up for offside.

Armando Broja had a couple of chances to equalise for Southampton and he was made to rue missing them in the 32nd minute, when Jota tapped in his second goal from Mohamed Salah’s assist to make it 2-0.

And two soon became three when Thiago Alcântara’s left-footed strike from just inside the area beat goalkeeper Alex McCarthy with the aid of a deflection off Lyanco.

Into the second half and the hosts went 4-0 up, when Virgil van Dijk volleyed home from Trent Alexander-Arnold’s corner. That result moves Liverpool up to second in the table, while Saints are down in 14th.
