Late Liverpool comeback puts Reds back in first place

7 players have made the switch from Saints to Liverpool

It was the Egyptian's first goal in nine games, and meant he reached 50 Premier League goals for Liverpool in 69 games in the competition - quicker than any other Reds player.

Liverpool fans were starting to wonder if the Egypt global would ever end his drought, but there was never any doubt really.

Mohamed Salah and Jordan Henderson scored the goals to seal the victory, but that all came after Naby Keita's first strike for the Reds had cancelled out Shane Long's equaliser.

James Milner and Jordan Henderson came on in the second half to add experience, and late on Salah delivered a moment of brilliance, while Roberto Firmino did superbly to set up Henderson for the third. We have got great games to watch.

This title race is going to go down to the wire and Salah getting back in his old scoring habits can only be a good thing.

"After nine games [without scoring], I'm very happy to score a goal to help the team".

"Yes, it looks quite good", the Liverpool official website quote him as saying when asked about the chances of van Dijk being involved at St Mary's.

With just six matches left in this Premier League campaign, Liverpool and Manchester City are neck and neck in points.

The midfielder has been at Anfield for eight seasons, making more than 300 appearances for the club.

It's all go, but Klopp's high-energy ransackers will be sitting pretty at the top of the shop for a full week at the very least. We have 82 points now, that is massive in this insane league and everyone is waiting for us.

Henderson proved once more just how much he has improved as a player. "Always, I'm thinking to score", Salah told Sky Sports.

Liverpool must keep winning matches, but they have to hope and pray Manchester City drop points. He has improved us and I think he has improved since he has been here.

"We found a way to go into half time level, which was big for us".

Naby Keita then equalised before half-time with his first goal for Liverpool, heading in Trent Alexander-Arnold's deep cross at the far post.

With only 10 minutes left to play, Liverpool desperately needed to grab a goal and try to secure the crucial three points.

"And he has dealt with that outstandingly well so he can be really proud".

Liverpool also have three of their final five games at home, as Anfield has become a fortress with Klopp's men now on the second-longest unbeaten home run in PL history which is 37 games.
