Liverpool are relentless in the Premier League. This Saturday, the team maintained the 100% campaign and took the lead by beating Southampton 3-0 at home for the sixth round. Now, then, will cheer against Chelsea in the complement of the round to move ahead.
The triumph took Liverpool to 18 points, three more than the London side, who will only enter the field on Sunday when they visit West Ham. And to take the lead again, Chelsea will need a win by two goals from difference. Southampton, with five points, is in 14th place.
At Anfield Road, Liverpool built their first-half victory. And Southampton contributed to that by scoring a goal against ten minutes later with Hoedt. Then the home team shone on the ball.
At 21, after a corner kick, Matip made it 2-0. And the third goal came out at 48, being scored by Salah, taking advantage of Shaqiri’s free kick collection that hit the crossbar. The Swiss, by the way, was the main novelty in the formation of Liverpool, also having participated in the play of the first goal of the team. Roberto Firmino has played discreetly.
The second half of the match was weak. Liverpool slowed down, while Southampton chose not to take a chance on the offensive, fearing for a counterattack, barely giving the keeper Alisson any chance. So, also taking into account the triumph over Paris Saint-Germain in their debut in the Champions League, the team have won all seven games this season.
