Virgil Van Dijk Makes Awkward Dressing Room Mistake Before Kick-Off vs Southampton

Virgil Van Dijk Makes Awkward Dressing Room Mistake Before Kick-Off vs Southampton

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp insists Arsenal are still in the fight for a top four position in the Premier League despite his side building a nine-point gap on their rivals.

Liverpool, who will have ex-Southampton defender Virgil van Dijk, are in decent form but have recently lost away at Swansea and at home to West Brom, which may give fans some hope of taking something from the clash, whereas Saints are now enjoying a six-game unbeaten run that has seen them take six points in the Premier League and advance into the 5th round of the FA Cup.

Liverpool have climbed back into third in the Premier League table on Sunday evening.

The two-goal lead was harsh on Southampton going into half time, but it nearly got worse in the opening stages of the second half when Mane's acrobatic effort was blocked and fell at the feet of Salah, although this time the prolific winger scooped his finish over the crossbar.

The League Two side are taking over 7,700 fans to the national stadium, which surpasses their record attendance at Rodney Parade . Both teams made a series of changes to their line ups from last weekend's league fixtures.

Some commentators would have you believe that Liverpool need to recruit an out-and-out striker in order to reach the next level, given that Firmino leads the frontline as a so-called "false nine".

Liverpool are keen to extend his stay at the club - his current contract runs out in 2020 - and, given his worth to Klopp and his teammates, the 26-year-old's status as an integral member of the Anfield squad should be recognised if a new deal is penned. The whole Southampton team have only scored seven more league goals than Salah has in 2017-18. "There is a lot to go for and we will try to carry on like today".

Karius then tipped over a Ward-Prowse header as the Saints found some momentum, and the same player had another chance after Bertrand had crossed with five minutes of the opening half remaining.

Can the Saints continue their revival by winning a vital three points?
