LIVERPOOL VS SOUTHAMPTON
| Saturday, September 22nd |
Premier League | Anfield
3:00PM GMT/10:00AM EST
Liverpool just played on Tuesday, but in the form they’re currently in, even one day feels too long to go between seeing them play. They’ll welcome Southampton to Anfield for the first normal 3PM kick-off of the season. The Reds are on a six game winning streak in all competitions to start this season. Midweek they pulled off of fantastic, last minute victory against PSG to secure three points in the Champions League group stages. Let’s hope that momentum continues into this game today as they try to extend their streak to seven in a row.

FIRST HALF HIGHLIGHTS
10’ Hoedt (OG) - After some pretty decent build up play by Shaqiri in his first start, Southampton take things into their own hands.
22’ Matip - Joël Matip uses his considerable height to his advantage and sends it graceful header just past the Southampton keeper!
45+3’ Salah - After trying for almost the entire half, Salah gets his when he chases down a deflection off of Shaqiri’s free kick.
