In the 35th round of the Premier League, Liverpool at Anfield hosted Southampton, who in the first round defeated the Liverpool with a score of 0: 1.
The fight was held at a low pace. The teams did not force events and hoped to take advantage of the opponent’s mistakes. Liverpool has succeeded more in this. The Merseysides created an incredible amount of chances and had to close all questions about the winner of the match in the first half. However, in the first forty-five minutes, it was only once possible to upset the keeper of the “saints” Forster.
On the 31st minute, Salah found Mane with a hinged pass, who sent the ball into the net with a header. By the way, Salah’s assist on Man is the first joint effective action of the duo this season. The last time this happened was in a match with Crystal Palace a little less than a year ago.
It is worth noting that Southampton created dangerous moments at the opponent’s goal, but Liverpool’s defense coped with their main task. For the first time since January 17, Liverpool have not missed the Premier League at Anfield.
The intrigue in the match lasted almost until the final whistle. Withdrew all questions about the winner, Thiago Alcantara, scoring the first goal for Liverpool in the 90th minute of this meeting. 2: 0.
