Southampton 1 Liverpool 3: Late goals take Reds above Man City

Things took an unexpected turn right about now

Before Friday night's match away at Southampton Salah, last season's Golden Boot victor, had gone eight games without a goal.

Jordan Henderson finished from close range moments later to get the score to 3-1 and secure the points for Liverpool, keeping them on pace in their title quest.

Nevertheless, the Reds got off to the worst imaginable start, with Shane Long firing the home side into the lead with just his second Premier League goal of the season.

Henderson bagged Liverpool's third goal in Friday's crucial 3-1 win at Southampton.

After Salah escaped a flag having appeared to be marginally offside in the build up, the ball eventually broke for Trent Alexander-Arnold to deliver an inviting right-wing cross which Keita powerfully headed beyond the grasp of goalkeeper Gunn for his first Reds goal.

Salah collected the ball 10 metres inside his own half on a counterattack, sprinted forward and sent a dipping shot into the bottom corner from the edge of the area.

All good forwards are a threat in any position but Salah's trademark is his runs in behind and he's scored 47 of his 50 league goals from inside the box.

"There's not many games left, any mistake can cost us".

Manchester City continue to win every single game they play in, and as such there is a pressure on Jurgen Klopp and his side to do the same.

"I think that's goal number 50 for Liverpool in the Premier League so that's special", Salah said to Sky Sports after netting his 18th strike in the league this term.

Salah is at his most unsafe on the stroke of half-time - scoring 18% of his goals in the last five minutes of the opening half, including stoppage time.

Van Dijk sprayed the ball to Roberto Firmino and his low centre was ideal for onrushing England midfielder Henderson to tap home.

Liverpool levelled things up through Naby Keita's first goal for the club before half time, but it wasn't until the 80th minute that they moved ahead through Mohamed Salah's first goal in his last nine games for the club.

"We knew we needed a near ideal game against such a team. My first goal in nine games, his [Henderson's] first goal in 20 games!"

'Maybe it was a little bit too early.

"It was brilliant, I told the boys we have a good mentality among us", said Klopp. Wayne Rooney's second-half penalty for Everton salvaged a 1-1 draw. I am really proud.
