Jurgen Klopp brings on Naby Keita for Roberto Firmino

79th min: Southampton brought Oriol Romeu and Stuart Armstrong on a few minutes ago, and Liverpool is now finding it more difficult to get through. Southampton packed in while defending, clearly directed to avoid conceding another first. Liverpool pressing very high after losing the ball, but Southampton dealing with the pressure well.



73rd min: An awkward moment for Liverpool as a cross from the left forces Kostas Tsimikas to put it out over the end line for a Southampton corner. Tsimikas just stuck his foot out at it and lashed the ball dangerously past the Liverpool goal.



67th min: GOAL! LIVERPOOL! How has Joel Matip found the back of the net there? As a Liverpool corner swung in, Mohamed Elyounoussi was the first to meet it, but his cleared header didn't make it far enough. Matip just casually pinged it towards goal, and it found the top corner in agonizing fashion, almost in slow motion as it looped through the air.


It's a clunky effort, maybe even deflecting off Kyle Walker-Peters who challenged with Matip for the header, but it won't matter for the Reds. On a night the Reds need a win, style points don't matter.
