“Bobby was sensational”, “A team for the ages” – Fans react to thrilling 4-0 win over Southampton

Liverpool turned on the style in the second half to thrash Southampton 4-0 at Anfield, in a game that was ultimately tighter than the scoreline suggested.

Liverpool 4-0 Southampton

Premier League, Anfield
February 1, 2020

Goals: Oxlade-Chamberlain 47′, Henderson 60′, Salah 72′, 90′

Jurgen Klopp‘s men hosted an in-form Saints team on Saturday, as the Premier League leaders aimed to pull 22 points clear of Man City.

A wind-affected game saw Liverpool struggle in the first half, with the visitors creating a host of opportunities, but Roberto Firmino was unlucky not to win a penalty at the other end.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain fired the Reds in front shortly after the interval, before Jordan Henderson doubled the lead in front of the Kop.

The skipper then turned provider, brilliantly finding Mohamed Salah, who dinked an impudent finish past Alex McCarthy.

Liverpool’s No.11 rounded off the scoring late in the day, bundling an effort over the line to seal a memorable three points.

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