Liverpool beat Southampton 4-0 in Premier League and move to second spot


Goals from Diogo Jota (two), Thiago Alcantara, and Virgil van Dijk helped Liverpool put up another strong performance as they defeated Southampton 4-0 and claimed three points in a Premier League contest. The win helped Liverpool (28) move to the second spot in the table behind Chelsea (29) and ahead of Manchester City (26) — both of whom will take the field on Sunday.

Skipper Jordan Henderson took satisfaction in their performance as his team scored four goals in their second league match in succession. It brought to an end a good week for Henderson and his teammates, having beaten Arsenal, FC Porto, and Southampton on Saturday in that time and kept clean sheets in all three fixtures.

A pair of close-range finishes from Jota established a lead for the Reds that was extended by Thiago Alcantara, with help from a deflection, before half-time.

Virgil van Dijk fired in a fourth against his former team early in the second period as Liverpool added gloss to an impressive win – their third win in a week at Anfield.

with this winning, Liverpool move to second spot on table waiting for match results of Manchester City against Westham.
