Virgil van Dijk faces Southampton for the first time since joining Liverpool

It was Liverpool who added the game's second goal against the run of play, though, adding a late first-half strike to their early one as Salah and Firmino once again combined to devastating effect.

But the turn of the year saw his side pick up results that keep have taken some of the heat off, for the time being at least.

"We will try to win the next game and until the end we will be there".

The German goalkeeper was then put to work by headers from Guido Carrillo and twice by James Ward-Prowse but wasn't unduly troubled.

Mane and substitute Adam Lallana had further opportunities in the final 15 minutes, though neither miss mattered a great deal as Liverpool clinched all three points with minimal fuss.
