Liverpool earned a tense 2-1 win away to Southampton on Saturday afternoon, with supporters left both delighted and relieved after the final whistle.


Southampton 1-2 Liverpool

Premier League, St Mary’s Stadium
August 17, 2019

Goals: Mane 45′, Firmino 71′; Ings 83′

After Wednesday’s excursions in the UEFA Super Cup, Jurgen Klopp knew that his side may not be at their best at St Mary’s.

Despite a predictably leggy first-half performance, Liverpool led at half-time thanks to Sadio Mane‘s stunner just before the interval.

The Reds were fantastic in the second half, though, bossing proceedings and seeing their lead doubled by Roberto Firmino.

An Adrian howler allowed former Liverpool man Danny Ings to pull a goal back for the hosts, but Klopp’s men held on in a tense finale.

The win means Liverpool still have maximum points two matches into the new season.

Here’s how supporters reacted to the result on Facebook, Twitter and our forums.

 

The win was met with delight, on a tough afternoon on the south coast…

“Good 3 points at this stage of season, very good 2nd half.” – Gary Merrell on Facebook.

“There will be times where we will need to grind out results. Maybe too early for our liking but so be it. Another 3 points and marching towards another stellar season. Delighted for the boys.” – auzziez on the forums.

 

Mane and Firmino earned huge praise for their impact…

 

Oxlade-Chamberlain caught the eye in his preferred midfield role…

“Six points out of 2, but we need to improve. Like the show from the Ox” – Benson Safeli on Facebook.

“Glad we got through. Ox was good.” – StevenAlonso on the forums.

 

Adrian’s error naturally created a talking point…

“Calm down lads. Alisson got a howler last season too. Hope Adrian learn from this mistake. Scrappy match. 3 points, I’ll take that. Next match.” – Jagung Ken on Facebook.
