Liverpool playing like champions again, says Southampton's Hasenhuttl

Diogo Jota’s early double set Liverpool on their way to a crushing 4-0 victory over Southampton on Saturday to move up to second in the Premier League standings.

The Portuguese forward steered home Andrew Robertson’s cutback to open the scoring after 97 seconds, before another simple finish following fine work from Mohamed Salah put Liverpool two goals up and in command inside 32 minutes.

Midfielder Thiago Alcantara added to his stunning goal against Porto in the Champions League in midweek with a third five minutes later and Virgil van Dijk helped himself to a fourth against his former club early in the second half.

Jota had a great chance to complete his hat-trick but could not connect from close range as Liverpool eased to a win that lifted them above champions Manchester City, who play West Ham United on Sunday, and one point behind leaders Chelsea.

Southampton had their moments but they could not cope defensively and the loss left them 14th in the standings.

12 mins: Disallowed goal! Jan Bednarek scrapes Mane’s ankle and picks up a yellow card. Liverpool have a free kick over on the left wing. Robertson swings in a perfect delivery to pick out Sadio Mane who wins the header in the air and powerfully sinks it into the back of the net!

Then the offside flag goes up and it’s a very close call but the goal is chalked off.

Oriol Romeu then wins the ball off Fabinho and works it down the left wing. Broja swings a cross into the box but Alisson plucks it out of the air.
