Jurgen Klopp, Virgil van Dijk 9/10 as Liverpool make light work of Southampton

Liverpool made it a club-record seven straight wins to start the season, cruising to a 3-0 victory as Southampton were blown away in the first half. The Reds took their foot off the gas after the break but ensured they kept the back door shut to record their fourth clean sheet of the season.


Xherdan Shaqiri was excellent on his first start while Mohamed Salah got himself back on the scoresheet after his "drought" and looked lively throughout.

LIVERPOOL, England -- Three quick thoughts from Liverpool's 3-0 win over Southampton on Saturday afternoon.

Mohamed Salah's sensational 2017-18 has set expectations impossibly high

Jurgen Klopp says Mohamed Salah just needs time to get back to his goal-scoring form of last season.

Mohamed Salah's performances in the opening six games of the season have been somewhat underwhelming, but only when viewed in the prism of what he did last season.

He's had numerous others chances that he hasn't taken and also had a goal disallowed. He's not breaking any records, but he is making an impact.

It's not actually that different...
