“Controlled performance” “On to Porto” – Fans react to Liverpool’s 2-0 win at Southampton

Liverpool moved within two points of second place following victory against Southampton at St Mary’s on an ideal Sunday afternoon for the Reds.

Southampton 0-2 Liverpool

Premier League, St Mary’s Stadium
February 11, 2017

Goals: Firmino 6′, Salah 43′

A clean sheet, a 2-0 win, Man United losing – it was an ideal Sunday ahead of Wednesday’s return to Champions League action.

Roberto Firmino put Liverpool ahead after just six minutes when Mohamed Salah took advantage of a three-on-one break and slipped it inside for the Brazilian to slot into the net.

The Brazilian then produced one of the assists of the season when his back-heel set up Salah on the stroke of half-time.

Despite moments of sloppiness, Liverpool held on to record a comfortable victory and consolidated their position in the top four.


Fans were raving about Roberto Firmino after he produced a sublime back-heel assist and a goal in the first half…


But there were question marks over Joel Matip and Georginio Wijnaldum at moments throughout the game…

“Gini has nothing about him at all.” – Zag on the forums.


At full-time, fans were relieved with the victory and there was further praise for Firmino and Salah…

“Just the sort of game we needed before Porto!” – j75j on the forums.

“Three points, two goals, one clean sheet – and that was at 60% intensity!” – LFC4ever on the forums.

“Lovely three points! We’re coming for you, we’re coming for you, Manchester United, we’re coming for you…” – Howard Ellis on Facebook.


“We did our bit and so did Rafa! A good evening.” – Red One on the forums.
