Liverpool scored four goals in the last 30 minutes and beat Stoke City 4-3. In a match that was dominated by Liverpool, one of their goalkeepers made three saves to preserve victory for them.
Liverpool FC won 4-3 against Manchester United on Saturday. The Reds were looking to make it two wins in a row, but they fell short.
Diogo Jota’s goal against Southampton came after just 97 seconds, making it Liverpool’s quickest Premier League goal since April 2019. (15 seconds vs Huddersfield)
Liverpool hammered Southampton 4-0 to go up to second in the Premier League, one point behind champions Chelsea. Diogo Jota scored twice.
Southampton came to Anfield with the intention of attacking the Reds, but were punished in less than two minutes as Andrew Robertson was allowed to break down the side and cross for Jota to tap in.
Liverpool continued to press, with Sadio Mane heading wide before having a goal disallowed for a little offside.
However, shortly after the half-hour mark, a second goal was scored when the unmarked Jota tapped in from Mohamed Salah’s square pass following brilliant link-up play between the Egypt international and Jordan Henderson.
With those two goals, Liverpool has now scored 700 goals in all competitions since Jurgen Klopp took over at Anfield. They are also the first top-flight side in English football since Sunderland in 1927 to score at least twice in 17 consecutive matches in all competitions.
The Reds weren’t finished yet, as a third goal came only a few minutes later when the visitors failed to clear their lines effectively, and Thiago Alcantara punished them with his second goal in as many games.
The half-time break brought just a little reprieve, as Virgil van Dijk scored from a corner to make it 4-0 only minutes after the restart.
Midway through the second half, Jota came close to completing his hat-trick but stabbed just wide as Southampton limited the damage to four goals when it might have been much worse.
A fantastic outcome as we approach the hectic holiday season.
Ralph Hasenhuttl accepts responsibility for Liverpool’s 4-0 thrashing of Southampton.
December is shaping up to be a key month in the championship race, with games every three or four days, but Liverpool are in imperious form heading into the Christmas break.
They have already sent Arsenal, Porto, and now Southampton home empty-handed in the space of seven days, scoring ten goals and allowing none.
After a pair of disappointing results at the start of the month – a draw at home to Brighton and a loss at West Ham – Liverpool have been at their offensive best in recent days.
They were aided in this game by a Saints team that looked disorganized and much too exposed from the start, but the hosts’ aggressive style would have found a way through a more solid defense.
The tempo of Liverpool’s attack was unrelenting, with Jota, Mane, and Salah dangling off the shoulders of Southampton’s defenders, ready to seize any opening.
Salah did not score in this game, but he still contributed greatly, and his assist for the second goal means he has now been directly involved in 150 Premier League goals in his 171 league outings for Liverpool.
After Van Dijk scored Liverpool’s fourth goal, the tempo slowed considerably, but with nine games remaining in December, Liverpool may have sensibly saved their energy.
