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

"Always, I'm thinking to score", Salah told Sky Sports.

'That goal meant so much to him and to us.

Now Neville has admitted he was wrong to question Van Dijk, as he suggested the centre-back should be crowned as PFA Player of the Year after his sparkling performances for Liverpool this season. With his team hosting Porto on Tuesday in the last eight, Klopp is not entertaining the notion that taking that tournament lightly will help Liverpool stay above Manchester City on the domestic front.

"I made my decision to shoot". "I'm happy about it". "Super, super goal from Mo, Bobby so important to make the run but couldn't play because the ankle wasn't so good, fantastic finish".

The Egyptian's crucial 80th-minute strike at the end of a blistering run from inside his own half brought up his half-century in 69 matches, three fewer than Fernando Torres, and helped move his team back to the top of the Premier League table.

With 18 league goals, Salah is one behind Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero in his bid to retain the Golden Boot for top scorer in the league.

"Hendo, from my point of view, is a brilliant player", Klopp said.

Southampton took the lead in the opening ten minutes via Shane Long, however the Reds responded via Naby Keita's first Liverpool goal to level the scores.

After comes another quirk in the fixture schedule, Chelsea heading to Anfield with the opportunity to repeat 2014 and derail a Liverpool title bid.

"We showed once again that we are fighting for everything and, for 80 minutes, we made a very good game against a very good team", he said.

"People want us to play like Manchester City, we are unable to do that, we play our own football".

"We are always going to be unsafe with the players we have, with the way we play, and you saw it was always going to be hard to defend against us for 90 minutes for them".

Liverpool move on to an astonishing 82 points - easily the clubs highest return after 33 games in the clubs history.

"We have 82 points now, that is massive in this insane league and everyone is waiting for us", Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp told Sky Sports. So he can be really proud.

Senior hands James Milner and Jordan Henderson were able to add urgency to Liverpool's attacks and the Englishmen succeeded in getting behind the Saint's defence to pepper their box with crosses.
