“Shaq is a beast”, “What a team!” – Liverpool fans react to 3-0 win over Southampton

Liverpool strolled to a convincing 3-0 win over Southampton at Anfield to make it six Premier League wins from six, and seven in a row in all competitions.

Liverpool 3-0 Southampton

Premier League, Anfield
September 22, 2018

Goals: Hoedt OG 10′, Matip 21′, Salah 45+3′

It was a routine victory in the end, with Southampton offering little by way of resistance to a Liverpool side who march on towards a testing set of fixtures against Chelsea.

The goals all came in the first half, with Xherdan Shaqiri influential throughout his 45-minute showing, forcing Wesley Hoedt’s opening own goal and laying on Mohamed Salah‘s strike with a brilliant free-kick.

Joel Matip netted on his first start of the season in between those two goals, towering over the 6’7″ Jannik Vestergaard to crash a header home.

Liverpool have won their first seven games of the campaign for the first time in history, and here’s how supporters saw this 3-0 victory on Twitter, Facebook and our forums.
